That's a loaded question because it all depends on the dealer you take it to for service. Some will try to void you for an aftermarket intake. Others don't care if you have exhaust, water meth, and a programmer, though those are the exception. Most dealers are somewhere in between.

03-04 trucks may have an issue. 05-07 trucks don't have CEL issues with those mods. The cat can be easily installed for trips to the Ford doctor.

We have all our work trucks 1: 2004 F-350 and 9: 2005-07 F-350's and 6: 2004-07 E-450's all of which have the cat's and mufflers's cutoff and airaid intakes since new it's the first thing we do when we get new one's haven't had one out of the sixteen have anything problems by the exhaust or the air intake. I believe by taking off the CAT and muff the motor and turbo stay cooler and should last longer and yes some dealership's don't like the mods but our mechanic at Ford has the same opinion it can only help the truck no warrenty issue's yet hope this help's.

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights
