tuner help, insight, options

I have a 03 7.3 cclb , I currently have a superchips flashpaq . I came across a killer trade for some 4x4 parts to do my swap for my tuner.... What options would I have if I were to leave the flashpaq tune in my truck until I can get a multi-pos chip later without losing my go go till then. Nobody wants to drive a stock tuned 7.3!!! Thanks guys you have always been a help.

You'll screw the guy your trading with as your flashpak will VIN lock and he will not be able to use it unless your truck is returned to stock.

Even if the flashpaq is unlocked? Or will that not matter ?

As soon as you put a tune on your truck or any other it will VIN lock to that truck and render useless to any other truck, except being a code reader. It will still do that.

I just went through the steps and put mine back to stock ..... What a horrible experience a stock tuned 7.3 would get its doors blown off by a geo metro!! I'm sorry if any of you have to go through that horrible punishement of driving a stock tuned and powered 7.3, that should be illegal to have that much balls and that little go!!! But anyway I did a quick tune and it says that the tuner is NOT vin locked....
