H&S XRT or Mini Maxx

Do you guys thinkin can see as good of mileage increasments out of the xrt as the mini maxx? Also can anyone tell me if the xrt makes much smoke or is it a really clean tune. I want power but I want mileage the most. Thanks

Higher HP tunes usually result in more gains in the MPG department. That being said, I'd say the Mini Maxx will get you more, because it has larger tunes.
Another thing to consider is that the XRT does not tune the transmission, which could lead to transmission issues later on down the road if you beat on the truck, or tow a good amount.
Originally when H&S was getting their tuners out, they were supposed to be a cleaner tune, and I think a couple of people said they don't really blow a lot of smoke like some others do.

I have the XRT, but only for a few weeks now so i don't have much experience. I like is so far, it gives me what i need; a little more power and no damn regen.

Have you done any mileage calculations? How clean is it when you get on it? Thanks!

I haven't done a very good test yet. From what I have seen it about 16mpg on the hot tune with mostly country roads with a/c on. I will hopefully get more highway time in and mess with the different tunes. It is very clean imo, much cleaner than my 6.0 with sct was.

Do you think the 120hp tune seems like quite a bit more power when you get on it? Or is it not that big of a difference?

The 120 tune ramps up power real Fast, I consider it scary fast over my stock performance. Night and Day difference

Good to hear! What kind of mileage are you getting with it?

I have the minimaxx and its awesome, I haven't seen huge mpg gains, but if I drive really nice the most I've gotten was 15.8 mpg. I don't find there is much smoke with any of the tunes until you do the 250hp, once you tromp on it she gets black. I like it personally. But for the extra money I would go for the minimaxx.
