Yes, but not that way. The tuner has an option to "return to stock".

But they can still tell your vehicle was tuned.

Yep. Idk exactly how but I've heard it depends on how deep they dig.. But soot on the exhaust pipe is a dead give away.

Thats what I've heard too, I heard that the normal techs and people at the dealerships can't really dig that deap, but if a Ford engineer comes in they will find it has been tuned no matter how much you try to hide it. Just ask around in your area and find a mod friendly dealer and you should be good. Also the new H&S tuners are different from the older ones. Due to EPA stuff from what I understand the new ones are hard to get with dpf off tuning. You have to prove that your rig is an off road or race rig only. I do know some sponsors on here still have the old ones in stock though.

2008 F250 4x4
H&S Mini Max
Diamond Eye 4 in strait pipe
S & B Intake
HIDs 6,000K
more to come hopefully soon

Hard to get? Try probably damn near impossible. Only way is if you somehow have proof the vehicle will never see the road, even then, no gurantee.

First Edge, then SCT, now H&S. All three offered race tunes and were stopped by the EPA. Now they are only selling street legal tuning. Just a matter of time.
