Same as it did before a reflash. Just make sure that u load ur oem tune before u take it to a dealer to flash. Once u get home, put ur Bama back in. Might be a diff procedure if the dealer actually replaces ur pcm unit.

Make sure that your car is back on the stock tune when you take it to the dealership. Or tell the dealership that it's tuned and that you don't want them to do any computer updates without permission!

If they flash your car with a system update and your tune is still loaded to the PCM, it will lock your device out and you'll have to send it back to SCT to be unlocked for a one time fee of $150. You can prevent this by either telling them or returning your car to stock before bringing the car in!

Hope this helps!
