mini maxx on 6.0

hey all. i don't usually post up in this section. who all runs a mini maxx on their 6.0 and how do you all like it? i just bought a mini maxx and i got a buddie that runs canned sct tunes on his truck and i don't have a truck right now. so i told him i'd let him run my mini for a few days and see how he likes it. just as a comparison.
how will they compare?
what all if any differences will he see

thanks

If he has the SCT, he really should ditch the canned tunes and get custom tunes tailored to his truck. Nothing will compare to the performance he'll see with that, not even the mini maxx.

thanks guys! i wasn't sure since his is canned tuning how the mini maxx will stack up. told him a little bit ago that the mini will be dissapointing compared to the sct, but that he could still try it just for the hell of it. thanks again guys

I ran the mini max on my 6.0 for a little over a year and loved the smooth power but the they do nothing in regards to tuning the transmission although using the tow haul helped a bit . I now run sct with custom tunes and use the mini for gauges .
