Dealer Flashed my Truck without auth?

They say that it wont affect the loading of the tune but I suspect it will? Can I drive it home and what do I do it it goes in to regen as I have the DPF Delete pipe on

(I drive home offroad)

You took it in tuned? I would reload a tune and just driver it home. Try using a different tune.

It has been in tuned many times. They all know not to reflash it. New mechanic though he was doing the right thing. Guess he never stepped on the gas to pull the thing in to the shop! I think the strategy code has changed which will cause tune load errors. I guess I will have to wait and see. I just don't know what will happen if it goes into "regen" with no DPF on it

I would be a bit pissy myself. Depending on what strat you had in the truck compared to the new one. You might be fine or might not be able to load the tune at all. If the truck goes into regen you just smoke some and thats it.

Lets just say not quite stock.

So driving in Regen with no DPF is OK?

when was the last time you were flashed? I had my truck reflashed it made no difference with loading tunes. Try to reload first. If it wont take then get ahold of 64cal
