Am just about ready to pull the trigger on your tune for the eco diesel but cant decide whether or not to keep the stock ECU. In your opinion would it be a good idea to put the stock ECU back in the truck if some serious issue arises and it needs to go in for repair. Has anyone had your ECU reflashed by the dealer for any reason. I know you state you can reflash for $100 but there is still down time ivovled.

I am also curious to know this answer. Last time I had my truck in was for a recall on rear axel and they loaded latest update. Would that update overwrite data on the tuned ECM?

The dealer can overwrite our tune if they come out with a new release and the part number changes. They will not detect our tune and not a big need for keeping the stock module...it is an expensive paperweight. Worst case, the dealer erases the tune and we reinstall for $50. Hope this helps with your decision making.

How would you know if the dealer overwrote the tune?

It will drive worse. The GDE tune can also set the cruise down to 15mph, stock minimum is 25mph.

With you doing a reprogram for $50, I am guessing it has to be mailed to you or can an exchange be done again to eliminate down time.
