H & S Mini Maxx

Going to tune my 2008 F250. I went to the local guy by the house. Tell him I want Mini Maxx, delete pipe and S&B intake.

He says that the mini maxx is just generic tunes. Is this right or is blowing smoke up my you know what. I can not find info on this.

Should I stick with the brand S's or what.

I was about to pull the trigger on this. I really like switching on-the-fly. I am not really worried aboout out running vettes. I just want fuel milage and to get rid of regen.

If H&S's are generic then everyones is generic.
I run a mini and I love it, need to update the files and redo the tranny learning though.

Unless someone puts your truck on a dyno and creates custom maps aren't all tuners "generic"?

Sounds like a sales pitch to me without knowing the full context.

I was thinking the same thing. It's not custom tune if everyone on here has the same tunes! I think the key is with Spartan and H&S is that you are not stuck with one of 3 or 5 tunes like edge and others. You have the ability to have custom tunes made for your truck!!

I run the Mini Max on mine and have not regretted it one bit!!

h &s hot tune is AWESOME, best thing about h&s is that you can shift on the fly, the tunes are great and free updates via their website! if you order a minimaxx order it through KEM and you get h&s plus 3 KEM tunes!! and KEM is very well known on these boards, cant go wrong

H&S, Spartan, SCT, etc. are not a custom dyno tunes catered specifically to your engine/truck (IE they work with all 6.4 engines). With that said, its generic for each brand. So in a way, that guy is correct. To get a custom dyno tune, you would have to put the truck on a dyno, and allow the professional tuner to modify perimeters with some kind of tuning software through a laptop

The brands i mentioned above are far from junk, in fact quite the opposite.

I was thinking the same about being generic. Local dealer wanted to push

other brand because it will monitor more parameters. I am not trying to build

a racer. You could say the DP tuner for m 7.3 is genric in this case. But is

way better than my old superchips tuner. I read alot and think the mini maxx

is what I am going with.
