Using aftermarket hose clamps might not be, but lying to the dealer
about it is fraudulent, and possibly illegal.

Remember the discussion about the WRX owner in Seattle who blew his
engine and turbos with a chip, swapped it back to stock, took it to
the dealer for warranty repair and then bragged about it on a web
forum?  Everyone sneered at him for being an idiot, taking it to
multiple dealers when the first figured out what was going on, etc.

What you're suggesting starts to sound similar...
