Have any of yall had any problems at your dealerships getting warranty work done because you had gauges or an outlook or attitude monitors installed in your trucks?

The attitude monitor I can see as it has to be hooked to the Juice in order to work. The Bully Dog Outlook will work as a stand alone unit so I don't see how it could cause any issues. Same with the Quadzilla Commander.

Thanks, the only thing is the manifold has to be drilled for the pyrometer gauge so I dont know how I could hide that if I had to.

I have. They said they wouldnt cover it if it had anything performance related on it.

True, however a set of gauges is not perfomance enhancing. Infact, it will help keep from overworking the motor. As long as you use a stand alone guage kit like the outlook or Quadzilla, that will operate without a chip or programmer on the truck you should be fine.

I agree with Diesel Nut. Gauges are definatly a safe thing to have.

If your dealership is going to get strict then id look at getting a recipt for your pyro getting installed. I'm not sure how your pyrometer was installed but Id get a recipt saying the manifold was removed drilled cleaned and re-installed. If you ever have turbo problems the dealer could say it was from shavings from your pyro.

Thats how I did mine. Better safe than sorry :rolleyes:

i have a 2007 classic and had it at the shop yesterday, checking on the bad fuel mileage. anyway i know the service techs very well and they told me if i have a major problem with the trans or motor or anything else to take the edge computer it self out and not to worry about the egt wire, that it would not matter that i left it. just get the other stuff out before it is brought to the shop. they had to unplug it yesterday and reprogramme the trucks computer while the service manager was watching, and he did not say a word.

Alot of guys are going to be to dumb no (ignorant) to the fact that anything is done because they dont work on them they just oversee. Kind of like the dumb s**ts that engineer the trucks they design them they dont work on them. They dont care how hard things are to get to.

P.S. My neighbor has an 02 dodge bone stock (even exhaust) and has more gauges in that thing than an airplane cockpit. So i dont see why they would get mad at you for taking (precautions) for the saftey of your motor. haha

We take our powerstroke to the dealership with everything it has on it(outlook, triple dog, ts module, 4" magnaflow, AFE intake, methanol injection) and they still do all the warranty work on it, they even replaced the stock turbo and rearend under warranty. I guess it just depends on who you deal with.
