Taking my truck to dealer with D.P. Tuner installed

I have a 1999 f-250 4x4 with a few mods. on it, my favorite being my new PCM from D.P. with the f-5 chip and 6 programs, my question is what do I do when I take it to the dealer so as not to have anything messed up,and my new or different PCM is out of a newer model truck and I dont know if this would confuse the dealer if they ran any tests. The good thing is I know the service manager and I could tell him all this and if I knew what to ask him to do or not to do I could. Again thanks for all the help from you guys and gals, you have helped me to make good decisions on other things espically my purchase from D.P.

Take it out before you show up there. I remove the switch for my F5 if I have to take it to anybody (tires, alignment, etc). That locks them into a stock setting and doesn't allow them to play.
