WHAT HAPPEN?

SO 2DAY I TAKE MY BUDDY FOR A RIDE IN MY TRUCK, 2008 F-350. MINIMAX TUNER W/ HOTDAMN SETTING/4IN PIPE ALL THE WAY BACK/AFE AIRFILTER. I FLOORED IT FROM ABOUT 5-10 MPH AND SHE TOOK OFF PRETTY GOOD, HOWEVER AT ABOUT 70MPH THE TRUCK JUST BOGGED DOWN AND LOST POWER FOR ABOUT 1-2 SECONDS. I BACKED OFF AND THE TRUCK IS FINE. A SEEN THE PYRO1 AT 940, THATS THE ONLY GAUGE I SAW WHEN IT HAPPENED. WHAT DO U THINK?

Did the Mini beep when you lost power. If it did you hit one of the defuel levels and it detuned down a level or 2. I am guessing it had to much boost. Check your settings on the Mini for defuel.

I only have the EGT and the boost set to defuel. Boost at 42 and EGT at 1,400. I don't worry about temps because i always let the truck warm up before getting on it and i just keep my eyes on the coolant temps.

My guess is that it defueled because you hit 42 psi. Your set up will hit that no problem.

That i think you will get a lot of opinions. From all i have read 42psi sounds safe to me.

Check to see what your settings are first. It might not be the boost.
