Warranty

just to let yall know i work for a fleet service company with in house ford warranty reps and was talking to them about the 6L and the 6.4 the good news is........well there aint none......... the bad news is they are really going to start cracking down on the warranty's for these trucks because of the economy ....... a gentleman told me any way they can find not warranty these trucks they will do it i.e. tuners, air filters, exhaust mods, anything to boost the performance will automatically void warrantys as we already knew.....just watch out if you go in for warranty work be on you're toes they are really looking hard..... he stated if we can get a tech to spend 30 extra mins to find some performance mods that saves us thousands in the long run so that is one way we will do it and numerous others ways that they are trying to implement at the dealerships....just a little tid bit someone might find helpful and not get there warranty voided any updates i will keep informed

The dealership is the one who is on the receiving end of those types of decisions. One pissed off customer who was told their radiator is not covered because of an air cleaner mod. I know that might be a stretch, but it would not surprise me.

most dealers are pretty good about mods that i've been to because your making them money wether your truck is tuned or not. ford still pays them buy the hour for warranty work

became good friends with my dealer service manager, he said as long as i have no major warranty issues everything is covered, he said it i have problems then bring it in as "stock" and then ford will have to find the reason, if they can find that i had modded something and trace it back then i could be out that part, kinda like if you lift your truck and you come in and complain about ball joints or something

he told me not to worry about it b/c ppl there already modded theirs with spartan too!

Do what I did over the weekend. Make a deal with a diesel tech and take care of him if he takes care of you.

Pay to play, they shouldn't have to pay for parts that break or go bad cause we modified them. They have been able to tell for a long time if a truck has been tuned just alot of the mechs are to dumb to know how.
