nice docs to have

Nice of GM to put it out there that as a matter of course any change voids warranty. If I have a problem and mods caused it, I pay; but, if there is a problem and it is caused by defect in the vehicle not the mods, then GM is going to pay. I don't believe a jury will like GM canceling warranties as a matter of course. This is just a humble country lawyer's opinion from Ga.

Hmm yea you're about a year late.

As for how it works going back to stock, when a tuner saves the factory tune, it also saves those verification numbers that those PDF's are talking about. So when you reinstall the factory tune, you also reinstall the factory verification numbers.

i'm the same way, just trying to see what the tuners that say if you go back to stock tune the dealers will not know. i work at a dealer were we took a escalde in on trade and sold it and the motor blew up on it and it had a tune for the speedo nothing els(after market wheels), gm looked at the computer and did not pay for the warranty. so for the customer that had it when the motor went south we pick up half the bill of $4500

Then talk to Vector Motorsports. They do it all the time and have tunes in hundreds of cars and quite a few of them have been checked by GM with no issues what so ever.

easy, plug in predator or trinity, install tune, restore stock tune, go to dealer.

They will NEVER know.

Anyone ever wonder what GM engineers do when they leave GM? They go to work in the aftermarket....lol. Trust me, we know what we are doing!

Data logging custom tune and you control the program file to return your car to the stock tune if needed. Go to a dyno shop and you have to take your car back to them to return the stock tune.
