First trip to stealership since delete.

So, I was having a problem with my backup sensor. Went to local dealership to have it fixed under warranty. Diesel mechanic, who I know, comes out to take my truck into service bay. I am in waiting area and hear my trucks 5" Flo Pro exhaust just whining and chirping away the whole way across the building. I almost F!@@#$ died! Service manager perked up and casually walked back to see what truck was making all of the racket. OH S!@#, I thought. He came out about 5 minutes later and asked who did the modifications on the truck. I told him that I had just done it. He then informed me that my warranty was voided. But Wait.........after talking with him, I realized he was cool with it and hated the Fckn EPA and tree huggers as much as me. He just advised that if there was a big issue that I SHOULD JUST TAKE IT BACK TO STOCK AND AS FAR AS HE WAS CONCERNED, HE DOESN'T KNOW A DAMN THING...Whew!

Damn! He would have received a death stare if he came out only to tell me my warranty was voided, haha but that's cool he later advised you to return to stock and he would look the other way if you needed major warranty work. The last time I went to the dealership was to cancel my Ford Maintenance Plan, but I plan to go back there to find out where they planted my Lo-Jack receiver. They don't tell you where it is "for your own safety", but I may need to remove it one day if I'm being tracked by the Fed's or Nancy Pelosi...

He is incorrect in saying "your warranty is voided"..........only part of your warranty could be voided.

Wish more service managers and such were like this instead of "company hands". They know is actually helps the motor and such so why not be cool about it. Luckily I have a dealer close to me that's the same way. I think so anyways. That's what I've been told by a few. I want to go talk to em about it but don't want to give it away that I'm gonna delete it.

I would leave them out of it and return to stock before having warranty work done. Do not acknowledge that you've done anything that would clearly void the warranty. For serious engine issues, the longer you can operate the truck in stock form, the lower the chances they can prove that you modified.

I'm confused. So, the Ford technician agreed to install deletes on the customer's truck?
