H&S Mini Maxx Questions
I stripped off the DPF and Cat on Tuesday and downloaded my Mini Maxx programming and now I have some questions. I'm running a AFE Turbo-back exhaust with a stock exhaust. I did do the trans relearn for the truck too.
> Why are the shifts SO HARD going into second and third? I was running the mild tune and got fed up with the shifts so now I am using the stock tune and the shifts are much better, but still a little too firm for my liking. Is there a way to soften them?
> When running the mild tune, if I give the truck a little more gas than quarter pedal, I get a lot of valve noise. It's like I can't get the truck to do an "easy" take off from a dead stop. It's like I have to go fast from a dead stop to clear up the valve noise. Is this normal? Maybe I can hear more engine noise since the exhaust is free flow?
I'm like the my no DPF truck, but I'm not too impressed with the tuner. I rode in my buddies truck that has a SCT and I was much more impressed with the quality.
Any help with my questions would be greatly appreciated.
