If the tune is unlocked then the shop should be able to read it out and make the changes. If it is locked though, I think a GM tech tool can flash the original stock tune back and you are still good.

This is based off my experience, one of the big company tuners will know the exact procedure.

Doesnt matter if the tune was locked with sct as they all are, HP tuner can read it not a problem if you need to adjust in the future

Didn't know HP tuners can read a SCT locked tune, glad one of the experts chimed in.

Hp tuners can read most units unless it is a hotrod conversion without a vin number
