I wouldn't worry about it man.
It also adds a layer of deception should any questions arise in the future...If you just make the change and don't say any thing - That's not being overly informative. Try to make the setup look stock again and you are trying to deceive the tech into thinking it's "stock"
You make me sound so devious
But I do see your point. I could always say that I put it on because the factory pulley had it installed and I figured there was a safety reason it was installed, like the pulley coming loose. Not trying to rip anyone off or anything like that, it is just that the local dealership looks for reasons NOT to cover things under warranty. That is why I paid the extra for the dealership to install the SC (they told me they would not warranty past the 1 year for the SC if I had another shop install).

Although for any warranty work related to the supercharger, I'd pull that sucker off and put the stock one back on.
That is exactly what I was thinking. At a quick glance the tech would notice if there were no paint on pulley. If I did take it in for any warranty work involving the SC, I would put the OEM pulley back on, but would need to put some torque seal on otherwise they would want to know why the pulley had been removed.
The torque seal on mine is a grayish color. I was able to find and order some from Hi Line Hardware
for $5.41 with free shipping.
Thanks guys for the input and advice.
