    Is this considered under powertrain?

    I can Uninstall my AP but it's very apparent I have cobb parts. Any advice? Lol

    Find a mod friendly dealer. There may be some in your area that will over look things like intakes, intercoolers and exhausts, so long as the factory downpipe & diverter valve are in place.

    Yes I never swapped out my oem DP. Should I bother even saying I tuned it?

    If they REALLY dig into the ECU they can see how many times it has been re-flashed. What they immediately see is how many key cycles have been done / counted, this value is re-set every time you flash the car, or remove the battery. I just sat in my car and cycled the key (start / stop engine) like 100 times after I uninstalled.

    Typically they don't look into those things unless they have a reason to, like you blew the engine/turbo/trans and Ford wants to know what the operating conditions were.

    FWIW: I was full bolt ons, stage 3, custom mountune map. My engine let go. I put everything besides my suspension back to stock, and brought it to ford. they replaced the engine and turbo no questions asked.

    Do you mean as in starting the engine on and off, or just turning on the power on and off.

    My car didn't act up yesterday at all.
    But this morning, the motor died again with the red oil light on. This only happens once each commute (about 30 mins).

    I have no idea how the tech will replicate this issue at the shop or if he'll even be able to.
    I'm more concerned if they'll just charge me a flat fee to diagnose codes (which I've already done myself with the AP), just to tell me they can't find anything wrong.

    I'm highly suspicious this is related to the infamous Evap purge valve issue.

    Start and stop the engine. I let it run for a few seconds each time, and I would not do it if the engine is cold. Start it, warm it up, and let it idle for a while then do it. Cold starts are really bad for engines.
