Can the dealer tell if I have a tuner?

If I buy a tuner and I have to take it to the dealer will they be able to tell I had it on and void my warranty?

Also I am going to lift my Excursion 4" and put on an exhaust will they void me for them?

Thanks

Chris

They can only tell if it is STILL on the truck, you can take it OFF/OUT of the truck and they cant do anything about it.

Ya thats what I was trying to say, if I remove it and put back to factory would they be able to tell. I might go with the Edge but not sure.

Well, EDGE isnt a great product, i have ran it but its not great for the truck. Its been know to eat tranny's out very fast. If you have a 6.0 the best thing will be a SCT, its well worthe the money.

I would go with the SCT for the 6.0....not the Edge. That's just my opinion that's all...

So if I go with the SCT and have to take my Exc to the dealer...I just flash the stock tune back and they wont be able to tell I had a tune and void my warranty? Can anyone confirm this?

Thats the way the 7.3's are so i dont think the 6.0 should be any different. But im not 100% sure, someone will know though.
