Hi this is lostrider, you need to remove all the performance aftermarket components, air filter and the superchip before you take it in for service, when you set the superchip back to the stock settings, you need to drive the truck for a little so the PCM has time to reset, if not and if they hook up the diagnostic tools and attempt to pull codes, they can see where you had a programmer installed, The programmer can step up the performance of the engine and can change the parameters to where it can cause a concern with the base engine, and if Ford sees it they can deny your warrenty claims,hope this helps.
