Default Chip on a 2012 F150

How many miles does it have to be to be able to put a chip on a brand new 2012 F150 5.0L? Also, which kind of chip would be the best for them? and what would be the best exhaust and intake for the 5.0?

Our trucks don't use chips anymore. It's now a tune from a scanner.

I would put it on after mile #1. Once you drive one with a good tune, you won't want a stock truck again.

I read that the SCT tuner can re set the computer back to factory without any evidence of being changed. Can anyone confirme this from experience? Sounds nice but i dont want to forfiet the warrenty. What can be changed? Filters but not the whole intake? Mufflers? Spark plugs?
