H&S Mini Maxx,Should I?

I have been debating between the H&S and Spartan and I think I am going
with the Mini Maxx due to price and shift on the fly capabilities.Does anyone
have any solid advice on why I should not purchase H&S over the Spartan?

I say go with the Spartan, but I am a little biased lol

If you have any specific questions about the Spartan tuner feel free to PM me and ask. That way we can keep this thread about the H&S tuner.

I don't see why not, either company you buy from is going to be a great product and have great factory support. Both companies are in competition they aren't like EDGE and just settle for 150HP Tunes. Either way you decide to go, let us know if we can help!

I would say either way you go you will be extremely happy. If shift on the fly is something you really want, go H&S. Let us know if you have any questions.

The Minni Would be a great Buy I think.

I got The XRT and 2 piece Pipe , H&S doesnt monitor O2 so no need for Bungs, Bare naked Pipes so to speak. Mine will be here Tomorrow ,Im Anxious To get the regen stopped so My engine will stop making oil amongst other reasons!!

I would have had the Mini if it had been released on the original (or even second) release date. I got tired of waiting and found a good deal on a used Spartan. For the money, if I were to buy a new tuner I would go with the Mini for the $$ alone.

Dont hesitate to buy it IMO.

Currently I do not believe it has any DPF ON tunes. It can be used as a monitor on a stock truck, but any HP gains require DPF OFF. I believe H&S is going to release DPF ON tunes in the near future, then you can update the Mini Maxx via H&S website.

2010 F-350 crewcab, platinum white, just a few options...
H&S Mini Maxx, AFE exhaust, S&B
Sold - bought back a week later

2004 F-350 crewcab, wedgewood blue
Tuning by Innovative
ARP's, EGR delete, Airdog II, Custom fuel system, Snow stage III, MBRP, Airaid, oil bypass, coolant bypass.
