Since I tend to trade cars more often than I should, I would like to know about resale on tuner/PCM combos. If I purchased an unlocked PCM and tuner for my '16 R/T and then later sold the car (after reinstalling the original PCM, of course) would I be able to sell the unlocked PCM and tuner to someone? Could they have it reprogrammed to their VIN and use it? If so, what kind of resale value would I be looking at? It's one thing to spend a grand on a custom tune; it's another knowing that I wouldn't be able to recoup any of that when/if I sell the car.

Thanks.

Yes it can be reprogrammed but you will have to figure that cost in for the next buyer. I think that runs about 200 to have it done. so if the pcm and tuner is to be sold I think 400-500 is what you will be able to get.

2016 and up tuner's will leave a footprint in the ECM even if you revert the program, You might be killing the warranty for the next guy, If there was any left.
