2008 6.4 Exhaust Question

I have a 2008 F250 that I love. It is bone stock performance wise and I am fine with that too. I don't want to do anything to void my warranty as I have about 36,000 miles worth left. I have been considering possibly doing a new exhaust on my truck and am looking at Silverline, Magnaflow, and MBRP particulate filter back systems. I'm not really looking for added performance as much as I am looking for a new look for my exhaust and hopefully a little more sound too. Have any of you guys had any experience with these particulate filter back systems? Are they any good? Any different sound? Do they void your warranty? Thanks for your input!

Steve

Ford states modification to the exhaust could result in denial of warranty services.

your not really going to see or hear a big diff with a DPF back exhaust kit... only thing you will see is a diff exhaust tip... i say save your money and put it in a "toy" fund so when your warranty expires you can just do a full delete and tune...

That's what I figured too, guess exhaust will just have to wait for another 36k miles...lol

Does anybody know if you can at least put a nice looking stainless tip on the stock exhaust to improve the looks without messing stuff up?

According to Ford, the factory exhaust tips were designed specifically to help cool the exhaust gases and are not to be modified.

Having said that, I recall seeing something about an aftermarket tip that replaces the factory tip and produces the same effect.

Just go ahead, tune and delete and forget about it.

I talked to a friend of mine who is the service mgr at local Ford dealership, he said that as long as the particulate filter remains in tact that it won't affect any warranty work. That being said, if I were to buy a filter back system now, when the warranty is up...can I just purchase the additional components to complete the full exhaust then?
