    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 info :)

    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.

    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

    Check your RPO code list, it should have the engine code there.

    Should be the 8 digit in the vin to identify the engine code. Checkout decodethis for a free vin decoder.
