They would ask about the ECU reset and I would just tell them that I cleared it with my AutoZone Code Reader because I didnt want o make the trip to the dealer. Worked every time. I dont know if there is any Programmers for the ECO out there that do the same but I sure am interested! Looking to add better throttle response, slightly more boost and increase my tow rating. I hear Super Chips has one of the better programmers out there..?
To start with, any dealer can not only tell that you have reprogrammed the ECM but when & what exactly the programming was.....
