Today it would be more of a program download into your C7's computer. I'm sure if not already this option will become available. But a word to the wise if you do this you can void your warranty. I know this has happen to the Camaro folks.

While the Federal "Magnusson Act" is clear that merely putting on an aftermarket part does not necessarily void a warranty, there is plenty of "gray area." For example, let's say you ad an electronic gizmo that causes significant voltage drop, then your voltage regulator fails. GM is going to deny your warranty claim for a new voltage regulator, blaming your "added on" electronic part. The company that sold you that electronic gizmo is going to say,"nonsense, our part didn't cause the voltage regular to fail, for it............." And guess who is then in the middle, trying to get a voltage regular (and labor of course) replaced, with both sides saying, "it isn't my fault."

I have done 30 mods to my Corvette, but pick and choose which ones I have installed. I know a new motor on my Z06 would cost about $15K, so I haven't touched its insides, haven't opened it up, nor had a professional tech do that. But I did change the air filter. I also added an aftermarket exhaust cat-back system.

We each need to consider the potential consequences of aftermarket parts before proceeding. Most of the time, all goes perfectly. Some of the time????

According to pfadt it doesn't affect "the counter" ( not sure what that means ) and they don't tune using HP Tuning software, they write their own programs. I'm not going to argue the point because I can't say either way for certain because I know about fords and SCT tuning and not all cars and I don't just trust a vendor just because they sell a product that does or doesn't do something.

I highly suggest calling and asking them concerns and questions because they can answer much more clearly then I can. I know I liked their responses and ill buy and if I can get a better price and help other a it's a win win.

For detection purposes GM is not going to look at every bit of software on your computer all they have to do is look at say the checksum number or the revision. Here is an example:

"Well if you have a new 2011 camaro ss you bought I will tell you for certain that if you put a tune on your camaro it will in fact void the warranty even if you put a tune and reflash the computer back to stock factory settings general motors will void it automatically, my source this happened to a friend of mine with a 2008 LS3 c6 corvette. he tuned it then took it to drag race. He over revd the engine. car began to bog up. Tune was running to rich. threw a bunch of codes engine loss power. He reflashed ecu back to stock tune. Car continued to throw random codes. Took it to general motors they flashed the cars computer found out the car was tuned and they voided his warranty."

To check your ECM updates enter your VIN in and it tells you all the updates that were done to your vehicle. TIS

Redc7, the checksum sounds like what they said isn't affected by adding or removing their tune, not certain though.

I'll be getting a tune and long tubes regardless.

Just was making a joke. That my luck, chevy would have to reflash my computer for a problem. Then down the line something would go wrong & chevy would void my warranty saying has been reflashed. LoL
