Air filter mods and servicing

Those of you have replaced your airbox with some kind of pod filter, do you put the airbox back when you get your car serviced? Even if it's out of warranty?

I've got a K&N filtercharger under my bonnet and I'm not sure if I should put the original airbox back when I get the car serviced. It's out of warranty but they could still say that it adversely affects the engine or whatever.

Just wondering what your thoughts are on this. Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about it..
In my opinion I wouldn't go to a Ford dealer
for GOOD service..Independants better I.M.O

Thanks heaps guys.
