Re: Dealers detecting Chiped Cars? (itg2001)

The important question is not "can they find it" or "will they look for it", but rather "does this particular dealer even CARE" and "is the problem related to the chip".
Many dealers know about your mods and really couldn't care less even if the mod causes the problem. Some are very anal. Most are somewhere inbetween, and usually won't say anything unless you ask for warranty coverage on something that the mod may have contributed to breaking. I've dealt with 4 dealers in 2 states, none of them gave me any serious crap except when my GIAC chip was fried and caused my car to randomly stall. They declined to pay for a new ECU, which is perfectly understandable.
