BTW... There is no pierced wires with an Evolution install...or a Troyer SCT....or a Superchips tuner...or any other OBD2 downloader/Tuner. It plugs into the diagnostic port in front of your right knee (If you are sitting in the drivers seat of the truck). So by removing the tuner after removing the actual tune.....you leave behind a small code (I forget....but I think its a P1000 code) that shows that the PCM was accessed by an outside device. This same code is tripped when using a standard code reader like the ones from the local auto parts store or similar.

It does not leave a mark like you may be thinking. The P1000 code simply means that the PCM's monitor testing is not yet complete and requires further driving before this code is cleared from memory. The only way you can clear this code is to complete specific driving operations so the vehicle can learn certain operating characteristics. This code does not have anything to do with the PCM being accessed by another decvice such as the Edge or Xcal2, etc. You'll also get the P1000 code if you leave your battery disconnected long enough to erase the monitor data.

If the dealer sees a P1000 code, they 'could' be suspicious of an aftermarket programmer, but its the same code you'll get if you left your battery disconnected overnight. Make sure you put your PCM code back to stock and remove all traces of the Edge if you want to be safe. If you want the P1000 code to be cleared from memory, then you'll need to complete a drive cycle as defined in the following link...

I have heard from Xcal 2 users and Edge and those seem to be the top two, although edge seems to be a bit more popular. I just ordered my Bama Chips Xcal 2 from "Jusnes Mods" so i am going to post my likes/dislikes and feedback.

even if a stealership got suspicious of the "p1000" code, you could always say you took it to your local mechanice to see if there was a fault code. he has to use an obdII compliant device to do that, and in return you could just tell the dealer i hear you have a shady reputation or i just wanted to know the problem before i took it in to protect yourself from unnecessary repairs. heck, even say you took it to o'reilly's or autozone or equivalent to check for codes.
