Returning to stock

Been tuned for about a week, but going to return to stock. I think i know the answer, but am i past the point of no return in terms of warranty?

Say i go back to stock.. NOTHING has been damaged to the truck, and i have approx 3k on it now... Assuming something happens to the turbo at say 10k miles, i take it in to dealer after returning to stock 7k miles ago, do you see a problem getting that turbo covered by warranty?

Damn I'm so torn!

As far as your warranty I'm not gonna guess because i simply don't know.
Just curious, it sounds like your concerned about your warranty or is it something else?

Warranty first, diesel smell second.

I knew both going into it, but the tuner was an impulse buy because of the whole epa thing that came out a few months ago.

No offense and not trying to start something. But why'd you buy a diesel if you don't like the diesel smell? I have to say in your defense I am very also torn on what to do with this truck. I am new to diesels but just bought this truck and a SCAG Turf Tiger with the Cat Diesel. I just did my first fill up of DEF and I have to say as I am buying and pouring this stuff in I had to ask myself Why am I doing this? and Why don't I just delete this totally? In the past I am very hard on my trucks and have depended on the warranty. So part of me says I better keep the warranty. I bought the extended service plan because I was worried about what I didn't know about diesels. My main reason for doing any modifications would be to get better mileage and not have to pour that stuff in the truck. I could care less about power as I feel I have more than enough power and torque. In my Mustangs I never did modifications to them until I was out of warranty because I was worried about dealers saying something. But I also know a lot has to do with how much business and how okay or not okay your dealer is with modifications.

Don't worry, none taken. i bought this truck as i occasionally pull a boat or trailer. Not enough to really need the diesel, but I've had gas trucks in the past and never liked to way they pull.

When i was looking at this truck, one of the things that sold me on it was that it didn't smell like a diesel. At all. Lol and now i miss that (2nd most).
