warrenty question

Question for the knowledgable ones. Does the injector warrenty of 200,000 miles have a "or 5 year clause"? Meaning does it say 200,000 miles or
5 years which ever comes first. I have a 2004 and have a juice with attitude, but never had the pyro installed as the dealership said that would void the warrenty. But if the truck which still has under 100,000 miles on it, has a five year clause my 200,000 injector warrenty has passed now. So help if you know the exact reading of that warrenty. Thanks, Grandpa

yep 7 years from date of purchase, not 5
get that pyro in there!! how is monitoring your EGT's a bad thing? even towing on a stock truck you can send those exhaust temps well beyond the comfort zone of 1300*f, and your tuning the engine for more power, which means more fuel and timing, which means more cylinder heat and, and higher exhaust temps, which could grenade your turbo or worse, melt your pistons
Hope that helps

thanks guys

Thanks for the info, I was told by the GM dealer here in Vancouver, and in Langley that any changes, tuners, exhaust, or intakes void the 200,000 miles warrenty. I was told I could take the juice with attitude back to stock then remove it and my warrenty was still valid. If I did that there was supposed to be no way the dealer would know. So I have made no other changes that would void that warrenty. Hope that was true.

the only way that they can void the warranty is if they can prove that the modification you made was a direct cause of said damage, there is absolutely no way that a Pyro or Boost gauge can cause injector damage especially when GM knows the Injectors are prone to failure, you can run the edge without the Pyro, but your playing literally with fire, if you run any level above 0 you are adding fuel which will increase cylinder temps and exhaust temps, you can run the edge but i wouldnt use much more than say level 2 or 3, with any diesel if you run extra fuel and timing you need a pyro, if they say that the pyro caused your injector failure i would tell them to prove it, they cant trace any changes to the ECM so they have no proof that you were doing anything but monitoring your engine, it would be no different than if you installed a transmission temp gauge, you just want to make sure that your aren't damaging your transmission, same as your engine, you want to make sure that your not hurting it, i call a big BS on them voiding a warranty for having a pyrometer, they cant prove anything other than the fact that you were monitoring your investment

Actually, Its seven years from Production date. Not purchase. So if your truck was built in 03 for the 04 year that explains it. If you have any trace of a tuner or fuel mods, they will say waranty voided.
