tuners in winter

do any of you take your tuners out in the cold winter months? i heard it was not good for the turbos. anyway, i took mine out and returned to stock and now it runs worse. takes longer to heat up, doesnt want to shift gears, and sputters and blows blue smoke. whats your thoughts on this?

I just let it get good and warm before I bang on it. I'll leave it on whatever tune I want
