i tapped a boost lead on a grid delete and i was going to stick it on my truck but i just wanted to know how bad it would effect my truck but i watched some videos on u tube and it lookes to be ok. but i was also wondering if i need to do anything when i take it off besides take those two wires and the ground wire off and if it will through a code?

it will not throw a code.
And i would just tap the manifold, pretty easy to do also, then you don't have to worry about cold starts.

Just remove the main cable from the solenoids to the heaters.

The modifications to your truck don't really support the need to delete your grid heater. If your simply dong it for he reason that they don't work, tape up the power leads at the heater. If you feel then need, buy a grid heater delete as well. It will flow slightly better, but doubtful you will notice the difference. Our sponsors can help you out with the hardware.

I think he drilled and tapped a hole to put a boost gauge fitting in.

It is a nightmare to start a non grid heater truck if she isnt plugged in... My heater solenoids went to poop and needed replaced. Here in Ohio it gets cold, not sure how it compares to Colorado, but probably the same. It was a PAIN to start my truck after work. A few times when it was blistering cold i didnt think she was going to go. Not worth the risk because if the batteries get low one day you may not have enough juice to get her to fire!
I have quite a few more mods then you and still wouldnt get rid of my grid heaters. They are just fins in the intake. They dont restrict as much air as you would think!

The grid heater delete does nothing for power. a buddy of mine on his 12v did 1000 on diesel only through his grid heater. my truck always had grid heater too when it made 683
