thats a real grey area any serious engine upgrades or mods the dealership kinda looks down apon .. I do know for a fact that the dealership sometimes will not work on any engines that have mods done when a warranty is in play ..
maybe someone else may be able to chime in with some info04 Tahoe LT 5.3L stock MSD 8.5mm Wires

Is your 2007 a Classic body style, or new body style? Mine is a 2006 with the LBZ and the Classic 2007's should be the same and then they went to the LMM for the new body style. I am looking at upgrading my exhaust as well but only going with a 4" cat-back exhaust.
Once my warranty is up I may go for a turbo-back or even a 5" exhaust depending how much I plan to upgrade my diesel.
For now it will just be 4" cat-back exhaust, a cold air intake, and a mild programmer that I can reset to factory settings in-case of needed warranty work.
Too extreme of mods will cause codes to be thrown and then it becomes your problem instead of a warranty issue.Darcy

As far as the warranty is concerned, Federal Law protects the consumers right to add aftermarket parts. Gale Banks has a policy of educating dealerships who toss the "warranty voided due to customer mods."
Here is a Gale Banks quote from dieselstop.com
184.108.40.206:(22:38:54) skippy : Gale, I am research modifing my 97, and have conserns about the manufacture's warrenties. I have read what is on your site, but can you give us any tips on how to handle a reluctant dealer?
220.127.116.11:(23:01:37) Gale Banks : Skippy, call us. If you have Banks product, we'll go to bat for you with the dealer. Once they understand federal warranty law, the problems always seem to go away.
