I found the instructions and the blinking lights said it worked so I guess it just saves over the old stock file?

you only get one tune, what you saved was the OEM tune, and reinstalled it.

i'd go to the dealer and raise hell, make sure you take your tuner with you and proof of purchase with a date on it.
why did they re-flash it anyway? and did you authorise the re-flash?

you might be screwed

weird.. the idle changed from around 1100rpm to around 900rpm after I reflashed it.. I just dont understand why it would have an F spot for factory settings but replace the P1 program.. I guess I need to ask sct how that works..

They did not ask me about the reflash only told me after they did it.. I even told them before hand I had it custom tuned by sct..
