Deleting next week... Maybe

I ordered a S&B intake, flo-pro 4" exhaust without muffler, and H&S tuner. Tuner and intake has already come in and I am waiting on exhaust. I installed the intake tonight. Everything went as planned. Left the cover off. Next week is when the exhaust comes in. I am still nervous about warrantee. If something failed and I returned everything back to stock, what's the chances that they would discover I was running deleted/tuned. Does it send any codes to the computer that aren't cleared when you return tuning to stock? How many guys have had to go through this and what were your results as far as warrantee? Really looking forward to deleting but a little nervous. Mostly of turbo failure since that seems to be the biggest issue so far from what I've heard. My trucks build date is 06/12 so it has the "updated" turbo.

I was pretty nervous myself. Everything that I read has been pretty positive. Deleting all of those components should give the motor a better chance at a longer life. Obviously if you run around on HOT setting flooring it everywhere, then it won't last. Even if you are deleted, the Dealer cannot deny you warranty unless then can prove that what you altered caused the problem. If you drive your vehicle properly you will be fine.

It's all up to the dealer. They can give you a hassle or they can be pretty cool. My dealer says as long as it comes back stock they don't care. I had an electrical issue with my truck messing with the whole can/bus system. Returned it to stock and had a bunch of warranty work done. Only thing I left on my truck is the intake. But I got a couple grand slush fund set aside just in case head gaskets go and they won't cover it.

IMO. The days of deleting are coming to an end. Not because of the law, but because the gains are minimal.

You are the only person on this forum I have heard say this. Everyone else has said that the truck after the deletes run great and they notice a big gain in power. The deletes will also extend the life of your motor if the motor is treated right. Deleting seems to be pretty popular on this forum. Deleting may one day come to an end because of laws but I don't think it will be bc "the gains are minimal".
