I wouldn't worry about the diverter valves when doing most normal service, but
if I ever have a turbo-related problem I will definitely not take a chance
(I'll swap back the stock diverter valves...it only takes like 20 minutes).  I
don't want them saying, "You need two new K03s but, unfortunately, we can't
cover it under warranty because you have aftermarket diverter valves."

In the end, I think it comes down to the stealership.
