State inspection - OBD reader erased my settings

I've owned the car for less than a month and only got a around to getting the NY state inspection done on the car this past weekend.

The mechanic hooked up an reader to OBD port on the car like any normal inspection to check for emission codes. When I got in the car I noticed all my driver settings were erased. Annoying, but not the end of the world. I proceed to drive the car for about 10 miles and noticed it just doesn't feel the same. It seems like it is slightly less powered and the turbos aren't kicking in as fast. One thing I liked before the inspection was when I was in sport + Sequential mode I could let go of the gas and it would decelerate very quickly (engine braking) like when you manually paddle shift down. It now no longer does this....wtf did they do

Thank you

Unless he somehow reset adaptations, he only reads info from the OBDII port. He doesn't manipulate any data what so ever.

Do you have a JB4? Maybe it was turned off. You can't access the OBDII with the JB4 tunes on.

Your settings, like radio presets, seat memory, etc are stored in the key fob.

He could not have done anything

You may not have heard that NSA has cooperated with EPA to reprogram vehicles in the United States. Object: Emissions reduction and where outgoing signals are available, vehicle tracking, on-demand recording via the in-car microphone, and research re: traffic law compliance.

Go ahead and Google - you'll come across it. If you live in a state with OBDII emissions testing, you are being brought into compliance with Obama administration goals.

When next in range, the fob is also reprogrammed with new code.
