if you are referring to tuner codes well those will not pop up with the Flash.
if you refer to codes generated by the car if there are issues yes.

From what I gather, GIAC does not throw codes that dealer can detect on routine checkup. There's always concern about bringing the car in for service without reverting back to stock ECU setting.

If dealer cannot detect GIAC flash, why would one bother to flash it back to stock? I know there's a handheld flasher coming soon that allows one to do that. But really, why bother if dealer can't detect it?

The dealer *may* get suspicious on a test drive if your car has 100hp more than stock
