These units can put the ECU back to factory and leave no traces, the only info it can leave is that the ECU was accessed, its has a counter, if you install a tune and don't change it every day, all the tech at the dealer can see is a counter that says the ECU was accessed, ex you go to a pep boys shop and have them check the engine error codes, i.e. accessed counter "1" access, I have been told most techs don't even look at that. So if you play it smart, your not going to get any problems. JMO but when you go to the dealer, just reload the factory ecu settings.

Can't they technically see that the computer has been flashed? I thought that with any of the newer cars and trucks running a CANBUS systems he computer is smart enough to allow the dealers to see exactly what was done when the computer was accessed?

I would like to know this for certain too. Hate to give up the warranty. On the new diesel trucks they can tell everything. Perhaps they haven't gotten so strict about the gas powered vehicles yet. I simply do not know.

I came out of a Volvo S60R and the dealer could tell everything that happened to the ECU. They could tell that the ECU had been accessed and flashed. The computer system left a trail of when the software had been changed and what had been changed. That's why I'm wondering why this system is different. I'm not arguing to be a pain I just want to understand why. This truck is so advanced in electronics I find it hard to believe they are limited to only seeing that the computer has been accessed. My Volvo was a 2006 and not nearly as advanced in the electronics inside the car as this truck and there were many guys who lost battles with the dealer over failed engines and turbos due to a tune being installed (and removed before going in for service and they were flashes not chips).

Bully Dog has confirmed that the only thing the dealer can see on these trucks is that the ECU has a counter and that it has been accessed, so If you don't change your tune everyday, it will indicate that it has been access a few times, Like example "when you go to a pep boys store and they access the ECU to check for Engine light codes". When you need to go to the dealer you just put back the factory default settings and you done, I was also told by others who work in dealers that techs usually don't look at that counter. Again, if you install a performance tune that requires 91+ Octane fuel and you put in 87, and blow something, that's your problem. Be smart. If you don't know what your doing, don't do it. JMO

I have heard nothing concrete yet, as always in the "tuner" world most all we can ever get is "it will be released soon" and once it gets within a week or so we start to get dates. As soon as myself hears something I will let everyone know, additionally if anyone else hears something I am sure everyone will know also
