Help! Mini Maxx codes

New guy here with a mini maxx problem.

Installed tonight with dpf/cat delete and when I started it, it idles fine for 5 seconds, then runs really rough. check engine light is on.

diagnostics on mini maxx:

P0546 EGT sensor circuite high
P2033 EGT sensor circuit high
P242D unknown
P2455 unknown

Any experience with this?

Make sure you select DPF Deleted when prompted by your H&S Product. If you select DPF Present, you will experience the problems you are seeing now. You can go into the "show settings" menu and view which setting you have selected. If you have selected "present", simply reinstall the download and select "removed".

The first 3 codes were exhaust sensor banks 1, 2, and 3 and the last code is the DPF pressure sensor. I am wondering if you loaded up the DPF present tunes while having the deletes on. Maybe ......?

Ok, I get the "Duh" award for this one. Followed the mini maxx instructions which say to download software to truck before removing DPF, which I did. But I told it that it still had the dpf on, becuase it did. Then I took it off, installed the delete pipe, and just started the truck.

After I figured this out and downloaded the "race" tunes, it ran ok. too icy to go for a drive so I'll need to wait for the to come in a few days.

Running great. Not sure about mileage yet. Installed it with about half a tank and hand calculated for the whole tank was 14.4 mix of city and hwy. Had been running 13 hand calculated. Filled up Friday night and have done mostly hwy driving 65 mph on cruise and lie-o-meter says 29.7 but too soon to tell what its actually getting. Running the Hot Damn tune most of the time.

Power is unbelievable but I got it mostly for MPG improvement so I don't really get on it much ok, at least after the first few days .

Have experienced the rev/slam issue twice now, at the same point on my drove home at night, going around a sharp curve to the left at 10-15 mph; haven't tried to do a trans relearn and figure it won't help much since I drive it for mpg, not racing.

Only other thing I don't like is the hair dryer sound but as I understand, there isn't much you can do about it. Minor annoyance.
