Question H&S XRT?

I have been reading up on the XRT and from what i've read, the are capable of doing everything the Black maxx and Mini mass does, but without gauges. Is the correct? if so, how hard is the programing and how many setting can you put on them? Thanks for all info

not exactly... the black and mini maxx are shift on the fly.. the XRT is not.. other than that the tuning is about the same.... but if you factor in having to buy the gauges you would need to show you everything the mini and black maxx tuner shows you would end up spending more than if you went with the all in 1 unit...

that being said... i have always liked having my tuner and gauges seperate....

I read that, all you have to do is plug it in and select, change power level and it switches that fast? I would love to have a Black mass or Mini, just dont have the funds at the time.

That is correct. If you are on a tight budget, definitely go with the XRT Pro.

yes it comes with Pre loaded DPF on and DPF off tunes. if you do DPF off then yes it will help with MPG. and for the gauges i highly recommend something like the Edge CS or CTS... but if thats too much you at least need to get a EGT gauge min....

How much different is the price between the XRT, Mini, and Black? I was wanting to save money but if i need all the gauges than I might just go with the black or mini once i get the money.
