It could go either way. Some buyers would clearly not want it and others would. You just need to find the right buyer. I have stage 1 but I drive my car fairly conservatively and never beat on it and have a friend in the same boat. I didn't get the tune to go racing - I just like the extra power that I can feel when I'm driving fairly normally. Just because a car has 400hp doesn't automatically mean it will be abused. Whether or not a potential buyer believes me is another story but I'm sure there would be some buyers out there who would rather I leave the tune and maybe even pay a few extra bucks because it's there. Just imagine the guy who's looking for a 335, test drives a few in stock form, and then drives one with a GIAC tune that looks perfect and well taken care of and feels that extra, factory smooth power...
