Will intake void warranty?

Just picked up my new 2014 SD and loving it!!! Looking to put a s&b intake on, but do not want to ruin my factory warranty....

does anyone know if this is okay to put on or will mess up my warranty?

Yes, potentially. There is a clause in the owner's manual that states any modifications to intake, exhaust, or programming could make your warranty become void. However, they would have to prove it was somehow related, which really depends on how low FMC is willing to go to deny your claim.

Honestly, I would put whatever intake you want on the truck. I mean you paid for it, do what you want with it. It would be a good idea to switch back to the stock intake before seeking warranty work though. That's what I plan on doing if the situation arises. My truck has the warranty voided on so many levels right now...

I'm using the intake from H&S. It was under $300 and looks nice...

PCM wise, I think if they really wanted to tell they could find it. My dealership is delete friendly but i remember my service manager telling me that they can see a difference in the computer between the airflow of a stock and aftermarket intake, based on the average airflow recieved. my intake was one of the first things I swaped and like Dantron said, they have to prove that it was a direct result of that mod. unless you sucking up large amounts of dirt/debris into the intake you should be fine. Performance wise not sure how much of a change you'll seel with just an intake, but the fact that the aftermarket ones don't have the resonator chamber like the factory intake was a selling point for me!! gives the truck a bit more of a growl and looks nicer under the hood.

Anyone notice a difference in adding an aftermarket intake without being tuned/deleted? Any real benefit?
