New to diesels, dont want to void warranty

Hello everyone, I just picked up my 2013 F-250 6.7L. I have been browsing here and have read quite a bit about the S&B CAI. I still have a few unanswered questions if someone could help me out.

Does installing a CAI void any part of the warranty?

Does installing the CAI cause more REGEN cycles?

And in your opinion, where is the best place to get one from?

Thanks in advance for any replies, and I look forward to owning this diesel for a while, and eventually doing a few more MOD's once I become more familiar with what I can and cant do with the warranty.

IMO if that's the only mod ur gunna do on the truck, I wouldn't drop $300-$400 on a cai. You can buy an afe drop in replacement filter that will greatly out flow the stock filter. And if you want to hear the turbo better you just remove the top lid and it'll flow a little better and let you hear the turbo nice and clear

What do you mean by removing the top lid? Isn't the top side the engine side if its still the stock intake?

Don't remove the lid on a stock intake.

Yeah I figured that. I just want to do things to make the truck better without messing up the warranty. But it doesn't seem like there's much I can do.

Ask your service manager ahead of time. See what they allow.

if you want to keep your warranty, don't modify the truck in any way, stay on top of factory maint schedule and either have all service done at ford or use all Ford filters and keep a maint log and save all receipts AND box UPC's from the filter boxes.

Oh, and save all fuel receipts and be prepared to have fuel sampled when/if they try to void your warranty for "contaminated fuel"

Some service managers are ridiculous and on a power trip and skirt, if not entirely, break the law. Others are very reasonable.

I'll definitely keep all documents regarding maintenance I perform. And I've already been maintaining fuel receipts, pretty easy since I've only filled up 6 times.

Just swap back to stock prior, if/when taking it in to Ford.
