#5 on the Pro side doesn't really do much of anything..adjusting the tone of the exhaust? Don't really see how that is a pro...in the long run it'll depend on if a person wants to gamble with voiding their warranty during the first 3 yrs/ or 36,000 miles. To some warranty isn't important, to others, like myself, it is important. As also stated, it would take much more study to prove out #2 and #4 for that matter, it's certainly not something that one could "etch in stone" and go from "the theory of" to "the law of"..
another negative that is rarely mentioned, but can easily be seen is when one runs into problems because they did a tune or delete, all kinds of examples on this on this forum. I know that there are also pros and I also know some who have done deletes and/or put tunes on their truck haven't had the first problem, but having been on the forums, it's more of a gamble, which to me is a negative of putting a tuner on the truck or doing the deletes while the truck is still under warranty. It is what it is...if under warranty and something goes wrong, there is a much better of a chance of it getting fixed under warranty, no questions asked..if on the other hand there are issues with the truck after deletes and tune added, it's a crap shoot as to what will happen next...I've read it on this forum and thedieselplace forum when I owned all my chevy D/A's.
Me, I'll keep it stock and see what happens, knowing I have warranty and will be taken care of, I may gamble "after the fact", but not before, to me, and maybe to me only, it's just not worth the chance on a brand new truck..
