DPF delete and dealership

so its time for the first 5000 mile service....

question is will they plug something in to my ECU?

should I go back to stock tune?

will it run like crap with stock tune and DPF delete?

should I even take it to dealer?

If you do take it to the dealer, set it to stock, that includes putting the DPF back on.
