Exclamation invisible superchips?

Has anyone taken a truck to the dealer after using a superchips programmer? I know you are supposed to return the truck to stock tune before taking it in for service,but is the dealer able to tell you have had a programmer on the truck? The dealer has already told me the intake and exhaust would not be a problem, but I am worried that they may try to get out of repairing the truck if they find out about the programmer. It is still under warranty, and I think it is going to need headgaskets(puking water from the degas tank). Anyone with any info or experiences? All responses appreciated, thanks in advance.

well that's what I am hearing from most people, but I have had a few people tell me that they "heard" that it leaves a footprint in the trucks computer. i have my truck in the shop for what is most likely headgaskets, and I don't want to be fighting with them over BS like this. I have a good friend of a friend who is the head diesel mechanic at the dealer, and he has performed favors for my friend (ie. his six gun never showed up to the shop foreman), but I don't want to admit to anything unless I have to even though he probably would make it go away if it did show up. Kinda between a 6.0 and a hard spot. Thanks for the replies
