Preference on exhaust and custom tunes when running H&S mini maxx

I am about to pull the trigger on getting the mini maxx with the AFE PDS intake and I was wondering if yall could help me on deciding on either getting the AFE 4" with muffler exhaust or the flo-pro 5" exhaust with muffler?? Also what tunes are yall running on your mini maxx? KEM tunes or what?

Any advice will help

Thanks

I ran my 5" straight pipe for a while but the drone and whoosh sound got old while pulling heavy. I installed a fte resonator and it took all of that out... the whoosh is more of a whistle now. I also run KEM, they are worth it to me. H&S is redoing their tuning in some ways in the next month so I would wait until then to purchase kem tunes to see what they have improved.

I think you will like the 5" with a muffler better.

I like the tunes that come on the Mini Maxx from H&S, they run/shift great and have more power than I will ever need.

That's what I've been told by everyone I have asked. My main goal is to get better mpg just like everyone else and then to have some more power.
What kind of mpg are yall getting when running the mini maxx and 5" exhaust?

Ok thanks guys for the help. Appreciate it. 5" it is. If any venders look at this can you message me. Who has good deals on packages?
I have talked to Nate and think I am going to deal with him. Seems to be a great guy with good prices.

Being on this topic...I purchased a 5" Flo-Pro that isn't installed yet. Which muffler/resonator is the one that gives the best tone? Might have to get that ordered and have it ready to go.
