I would be more worried about having a engine problem and the Dealer now has leverage to not fix your engine because you have tampered with the emissions system. IMO leave it alone and it will work just fine the way its designed.

Would a catch can affect a new truck warranty in any way?

In order for a dealer to deny warranty coverage, they would have to prove that the alteration caused the problem. A catch can removes contaminates and keeps the intake a throttle body clean. It is impossible for them to prove that any engine failure was because it was too clean. I wouldn't worry about a catch can voiding the warranty.

Had my 13 in the dealership a few weeks ago for a check engine light. They never even acknowledged that the catch can was there (and it's red, so they could see it). Like Judd said, it would be very hard for them to claim a device designed to keep the intake system cleaner caused a failure.
I have the BT can and really like the look. Went with them because I could order custom color. Fits in nicely with the color scheme under the hood. It was one of the first mods I did.

Thanks. I agree, the CAI would have been their first excuse, but they didn't say anything about that either. Turned out to be a bad fuel cap (leaking).
I guess it depends on the dealership and who works there. The one I use is really cool about mods.

I'm sure the dealers have seen plenty of catch cans on Hemis. I'm surprised that the service techs don't just empty them for you if you have it in for an oil change. I suppose you could ask them to.

I've seen many threads here about catch cans, and lots of pictures of the oil in them. Mine never fills up as much as I see in some of these pictures. Kind of weird, but maybe that is because I have the 2500 Hemi without MDS? I've seen some people post pictures of their catch can filled up after 3000 miles, meanwhile mine was only 1/4 filled up after the same
