yes and no...the chip/programmer will void the warranty....if you de-tune the truck before taking it they wont know to some extent....the computers and scanners they use probably wont be able to tell it was tuned....but the techs arent dumb....if your taking it in for some problem while its still under warranty and the tech knows that vehicle has problems once its been modified ie(powerstroke 6.0)...just be smart about it...if its going in for problems caused by the tuner....dont try to lie about it cause they will call you out on it....if its just going in for service or unrelated issues....by all means de-tune it and deny ever using one lol...

if you have a gauge for egts other than your tuner....no, if you have an sct livewire or something like that which has the monitor setting and acts as a multi function gauge setup....then ya probably....see even if you do remove the tuner and you have no egt gauge theyll know whats going on....

It is an edge chip i just put it on saturday and realize i made a mistake so i think i am going to take it off until my warranty is up, should i buy a pyro to make it look like that is what i had the probe for or is there any way to pull the probe out and weld the hole shut?
