Just wondering, but when you put a chip on the 7.3 does it affect any of the stock files when it is pulled off? I may be trying to put a chip back on my truck, but only something I could be sure is off when I take it to the shop to be tested. If I put the chip back into stock mode, would that for sure put it back to stock settings, because the edge evo didn't take all of the files off last time that it was supposed to. Any info would be appreciated. Stinks I gotta be all secretive with my modding...

I had a friend of mine who has a Ford scan tool run a diagnostic on my truck once. With my chip in the stock mode he had no idea it was on there. If you're that worried about it just unplug it and take it out when it gets serviced or whatever. Some guys don't even have a stock setting. When they want it stock they just unplug it.

ALWAYS REMOVE THE KEY FROM THE IGNITION WHEN REMOVING AND INSTALLING CHIPS.Can't stress that enough.When you 1st install a chip you will have to clean the contacts on the PCM.If the dealer would check they would see that the contacts had been cleaned.Inorder to clean the contacts you have to dissconnect the batteries the KAM code will be on the diagnostics.

Good point, Kainers.

I had a Superchips programmer on an '03 Silverado SS I used to own. When I sold it, i wanted to put it back to stock (of course). When I started the process I had accidentally left the daytime running lights on. Oops!! I fried the computer!! Thank goodness it was still under emissions warranty and I got it replaced 24hrs before the guy came to pick it up.

My point being, always take the key out (like Kainers said) and make sure NOTHING is left on or running!!
