Default Diesel Performance Friendly Dealerships?

Does anyone know of any dealers out there that turn their heads when you bring your modded junk in for warranty work? Chevy mainly...but maybe other makes will help other people.

So you are telling me that if i have a Cummins all juiced up and I take it to a cummins dealer cause i twisted the trans out of it they will replace the trans under the Dodge factory warranty? I don't think so.

They might take care of motor problems...but to me that really isn't the worry. Its all of the other **** around the motor that I'm curious about.

dosn't really apply here, but just cause i like them i'm gunna plug them, but Scion actually strongly encourages it's buyers to mod there cars, and offer all modifications through the dealers so that they are covered under warrenty. and by any mod, i mean any mod, suspension, turbo/supercharger, re-gearing. they have contracts with local tuner shops that they sub-contract the work to, then they cover it, i love it. i have an xA and have already done tons of suspension work, and am gettin a turbo put on next week. all under covered under warrenty.

A buddy of mine had an '04 full ton Cummins Dodge that was chipped, souped up, etc. He blew the trans up and got it covered under warranty somehow.

What the hell did you do and can you remove the mod easily?
You really should not have a problem - have Jeff fix it at his dealership. nm, he's back at scoo.

Check with Paul's High performance in Jackson, they do mods and I believe they can do warrenty work. they do tons of R & D for Ford & Gm so they have some clout.

Given the amount of trouble im seeing in the Duramax i figured motor problems . Injectors are a big issue with that turd .

So your Allison is the problem ? that surprises me .:gman:

Most dealers are getting to be turds about warranty claims! Because of all the cost saving they are trying to do.

Thanks for the info. I actually haven't done anything to the truck yet. I just want to know everything before I start so I know how far I want to push it.

I would suspect the Allison will be the weak link though. Maybe not.
