Default 2018 Ecoboost Superchips Dashpaq for Gauges

I have a 2018 2.7L Ecoboost and I was looking to use the Superchips Dashpaq in order to monitor boost as well as possibly correct my speedometer for larger tires/wheels. My question is will doing either of these leave a "data footprint" in the computer. I do not feel like having to deal with a dealership trying to void my warranty because of something they found in the computer. I was looking into using the Dashpaq for gauges because I have not been able to find any dual gauge pod kits that mount where the grab handle is to the top left, and I do not want the air vent gauge or the steering column mounted gauges. If anyone has found any better options please let me know. Thanks!

Get this for the parameter monitoring. You can view everything you want straight to your phone or computer over Bluetooth.

Also use this module with forscan for the tire size change.

I am looking into purchasing this unit, however, when I researched upgrading my instrument cluster to the Lariat or higher model cluster, I was told that it would not be a simple plug and play installation because my truck trim model does not monitor many of the things that are included in the higher end clusters. Do you know if I will be able to monitor these parameters (such as boost and others) through the OBD-II port?

Yes, regardless of the trim level or cluster, the parameters are all equally accessible. These parameters are necessary for the ecm and tcm to operate properly so they are present in all trucks. And pretty much any fuel injected vehicle on the road.

Default Interested in the Scantool MX outcome.

I tried the Bluedriver and couldn't access turbo boost on my 2018 3.5 XLT.
