Regular Maint., drain water seperator, check coolant additive, replace fuel filter's and leave stock. Get yourself a good monitor like edge insight or similar to see whats going on with your engine.

Marc, no it won't because the CTS is not a tuner or programmer and doesn't alter the truck's computer in anyway. Think of the edge CTS like this, your truck is a computer console and the CTS is a monitor. Once you remove the OBD-II cable there is no footprint left behind. You will absolutely love this thing! You can have up to 8 guages at one time. Monitoring such things as HP, Tq, DPF load, EGT's, boost, coolant temps, and also program maintenance reminders. You can configure different background colors or use one of your own. The CTS is the best upgrade for a New truck bar none, and it won't void your warranty, trust me, I don't wan't to void mine on a $64,000 truck! Enjoy.
