You should give any/all information about your combo to your tuner. Most have a tune sheet for you to fill out. We wont tune a car without one. The more info your tuner has about your setup the better.

If you have changed the injectors, don't run/drive the car. There is a good chance you will wash the rings out of it.

Your tuner should be looking at all of that. If there's an oil leak big enough to cause a puddle from point a to point b, you've got bigger issues - issues that i doubt a tuner would ignore. Then again, some tuners are awful anyway. Either the drain plug is loose, or something. Why not get under the car and look?

I'm confused by what you're asking.

The most import key information for a tuner is the # rating of your injectors (lbs), and what cam. After doing some of my own tuning on the street, I realized those are the biggest factors. Everything else just helps the tuner adjust fueling parameters before turning the car on, so it doesn't run overly rich or overly lean in any RPM range as they get ready to dyno tune it..

It didn't leak a drop of anything before I dropped it off for exhaust and the tuner guy gonna look at the leak.just mind boggling that you take your vehicle to a place to have something done and you get it back and it has something happen.
