I have one on my 6.7 and haven't had a problem when I take it to the dealership, but all dealerships are different. Just make sure if you install one you put a water resistant cover over the filter and clean and re-oil it when needed. That way you never have to worry about any foreign substance getting into the motor!

Voiding warranty

I would wait until the warranty is up. This way they can't blame you for anything.

You'll get more noise, but not any more performance from a kit like that, unless the tuner is written to take advantage of it, most are not.

Yes, anything you do can void the warranty.

Voiding warranty

My experience has led me to believe it is all up to the dealer and with any diesel 98% of them will claim water in fuel. No matter stock or modded. Just my experience.

I left my afe on when it went in for warranty and they didn't say anything. I asked one of the techs there, do I really need to take my intake off. I under stand tuner and all that and he said no big deal. But they take 30 min to swap so if I were you I would get one and just swap the stock one on there if you ever have issues.
