clearing the tuned bit?

anyone know how long it takes for the truck computer to loose the signs of being tuned. I was told it throws the same code as a weak or dead battery whe returned to stock. I need to take the truck back in and do not want it to show any signs of being tuned. Not sure how much memory the truck has.

Theirs some people that try to clear the memory with un hooking the batterys
others try to cycle the key so many times. But I've heard also, it really dosen't matter on
if you do anything because the mechanic can find out if its tuned depending how far they want to get involved on it. Also I've read that the spray pattern on the injectors is different so the detonation points on the piston is also another way to determine if their was anything done to it. I've just read this on sites so its just my 2cents, Hope it helps ya out pal!

I have seen that difference in the spray pattern, and it is pretty obvious.
