i agree with you...mostly. i don't know that ALL dealers will void a warranty for an exhaust or intake.

i know that the 2009's have 390HP. what more does one need anyway? i want a diablo, but only to get some better mileage. then again, i am still waiting to get into my new truck!

i'd say k&n air filter and leave it alone.

I want to replace the muffler with a flowmaster super 44. It already has the dual exhaust so I just want more sound.

A Stealership can not void a warranty unless they can PROVE the modification(s) in question caused a mechanical failure.
Just mention SEMA and they usually back peddle pretty quick.

As for the 390HP I cant out run my buddies 5.7/380hp Tundra,
so need more ? Yes I believe I do
