Detectability by the dealer

I have read ten thousand posts on this subject.." Can the dealer tell if I have tuned my truck?"...There are probably 5,000 answers that say yes and 5,000 that say no. Is there anyone out there with a true, 100% solid answer on this? I have read threads where people state their dealer told them anything other than an exhaust or air intake will void the warranty to include lift kits, bigger tires, yata yata yata...This is BS!! I have seen severl dealers in an around Houston for example that see the F250's lifted and heavily modified. I just had my truck in for service this week and the Ford dealer where it was at tried to sell me a tuner. How ironic is that? If it gets to the point to where they are denying warranty for petty reasons, play the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act card. They have to prove that whatever mod you did was a direct cause of whatever issue is being questioned.
