Exhaust with Ford ESP warranty HELP

hey guys i posted last week about getting a ford ESP and wanting to put exhaust on the truck. The inspector came yesterday morning and cleared the truck for the warranty. I really want to do a turbo back 4" with muffler and some guys on here said i should just save the cat and throw it in every time i need service which is starting to sound lie a pain in the ***, on-top of it a friend of mine works for a dealer (not the local dealer i would use for service) and he said for any repairs they would generally inspect the truck see if i didn't have my cat on? i find this hard to believe if i was going in for say an electric problem with a window motor or something else that had nothing to do with the engine/exhaust they would hold that against my warranty? With this said,the exhaust was really the only mechanical mod i would be doing to the truck and i'm a little confused on what to do now.

The inspector told me the same thing. I just went to the dealer I use for service and bought the warrenty there. The mechanic did the inspection with the straight pipe and passed it. It all depends on the dealer you will be using. Most good mechanics don't care about the cat unless you are in California.

Buy a system like MBRP makes: you can swap the cat in and out as needed (see cat delete pipe). Same deal with the muffler.

I have a 4" turbo-back on mine without the cat and I've had no problem getting warranty work done.

That that seems to be the most common answer. The local dealer by me has always been cool when i brought my mustang in with race mufflers but i figured cat delete is a little more serious to them and especially if its for headgaskets or another pricey repair.

So would you buy the system with the spot for the stock cat or buy the turbo back and modify one of the pipes?

If you are really worried about putting the cat back on I'd definitely do the system with the cutout in the correct spot and get the cat delete pipe as well. Whenever I move to a place where I am going to need to put my cat back in I'm going to wish I had done the same.
