Default Diablo & dealerships

Anyone that has diablo on there 2009-2010 ever had issue when taken back to the dealership. If so tell me about it. Did they figure out you had one?

Is there something you did before you got to the dealership?

I always download my stock program back to the truck before I take it to the dealer. Takes just a few minutes. Then, when I get the truck back, I reload the tune.

I am not only doing that so they decline warranty but also to avoid having my truck computer (PCM) and my Predator tune rendered useless if the tech plugs in their scan tool.

Not a good thing as a PCM is very expensive and so it getting your Predator refurbished.

Do you need to do this even if you are just getting an oil change?

Since dealerships may check your PCM at any time I would take it off any time I go to the dealer.

c'mon....a few minutes is all ya need.

Thats not the problem i just want to know if they can find out i had a programmer, and if my engine hrs goes to zero.

I bought the extended warranty not thinking i would want a programmer but since i came around this good deal i bought it to datalog my 2005 daytona with the 392 but decided to also put it in the 2010 if they dealership wont find out if i remove it before i go

The only thing I have heard is that the DSP will not leave a footprint when it is put back to stock for trips to the dealer.
