DP-TUNER over superchip programming?

I currently have a superchip running on the tow-performance mode. I and tossing around the idea of a dp-tuner, but I only have one problem. My handheld downloader was stolen, so my truck is stuck with the superchips programming. I have read that a chip over-rides the downloader. Is this true? If I decide to order a dp-tuner, willl I have to get my computer reflashed to stock, or the dp-tuner work over the superchips? Also, my understanding is that they won't stack? I really wouldn't want that.

Once you install the chip the superchips programing will be over riddin... NO issues... But if you pull the chip you will be back to the superchips programing.

No big deal really except you can't sell your Superchips tuner.

I kept my Superchips just for the code reading ability. To me it is worth it to keep it for that than the 50 to 100 bucks you can get out of them.
