Default Hey from Calgary AB Canada

just bought a brand new black 2013 sport, its my second dodge,,, i had a 09 for 6 months, prior to that i had a brand new 2011 gmc,,, my dodge is superior in every way to that sierra. Anyways im looking to fully "black out" my baby. also looking to make her a powerhouse!! so far i have a AFE cold air intake. and an AFE throttle body spacer,(do they even do anything besides make a little whistle??) next in line is exhaust. other than that im not too sure hat else i can do that wont void my warranty. Can you get away with chipping it?

Welcome to the forum! Good to see another member from Calgary. I believe a chip will void warranty if it leaves a footprint but it's my understanding some of the tuners don't as long as you set it back to factory and take it out when you take the truck for servicing. Could be wrong though.

I have done this with my Ram. Everytime I go in to get service, even an oil change I set mine back to stock and I have not heard them complain about it and I have had warrenty work still done. Not sure how much they would look into it. Would obviously depend on the severity of working needing done. Just to remember if you do chip it to set it back to stock. A buddy of mine didn't, and they had to reset the computer, and it locked out his chip which he had to call into superchips to unlock it so he can reprogram his truck.
