Determining if you have a tuner.

When they say the dealer can tell if you've had a tuner is it when you run the extreme tunes and it changes the spray pattern? Can they tell if you just run on an economy tune?

Order your SCT w/custom tunes and be happy!

Just make sure you ALWAYS flash back to stock progarm when taking it in for service, and take the SCT out from under the seat!

I've heard disconnecting the battery and leaving it for a few hours is good to. Gets rid of the battery disconnect code and tunning evidence I hear. The battery disconnect code sounds like a trigger for them to think your tuning.

Disconnecting the batteries will only set the battery disconnect code. You need to log a few miles (don't remember how many it is exactly) before that code goes away.
