Thread: Tuners

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default Tuners

    I have a 2013 Chevy 2500 HD 4X4 with the 6.6 Duramax Engine. I am planning to install a Banks Ram Air intake system and Banks Monster Exhaust very soon. Now for My Question. Is it possible to install a Tuner and use and not void your Warrenty ? If you would take it in for something. Would you be able to remove and restore back to factory without them detecting that a Tuner had been used ?

    sorry I don't understand these kind of threads ?????
    You want to modify the truck for more power and if you break something,
    then you want GM to pay for it ????????

    whats the saying, gotta pay if you want to play !

    Not like that at all. I have my 2013 Hypertech tuned. If I had to take it in to the dealer for service I would set it back to the factory tune as I don't want to hear somebody at the dealer stand around and threaten to void my warranty because I used one.

    IMO, putting a ECU tune from a reputable maker is not going to damage the engine.

    Its not smart a$$ at all, its my belief and I'm sure others also.
    GM makes a product and warranties it for you, you modify it for more power and still expect GM to take care of any problems that you have, its just not right !
    Sorry you think I'm smart a$$ ! You modify, you pay IMO.

    You should have NO Problems doing what you want Tons of research is done at Banks and other Co's to make sure they are safe for your truck or car. Plenty of people have added them to there trucks and still went to the dealership for Warr work. As for the programmer I would just set it back to Stock when you go in. IF something should happen to your truck they have to PROVE that what you did caused it to happen...
