New to tuning and H & S

I've got a mini maxx and downloaded the trans tune s2l off the website and chose hot damn instead of easy. Was this a bad idea as I haven't even loaded anything to my truck yet.

I wanted a good trans tune but wonder if I jumped the gun a bit by doing a download before I even put any tune on my truck.

I hope to load the tuner on the truck tomorrow for the first time.

Reload the s2m, and the default tunes. The ez tunes suck. The hd is nasty, keep a light foot and you will be ok.

Also I looked for the power source. The manual says solid purple wire under the dash left open ended, I have a purple/green, a brown/green, a solid yellow and a solid brown. It's a 2010 so I hope the book just doesn't cover this year.

Does anyone with a 2010 have the same wires and can you tell me which one is the ignition wire.

There are a couple of different wire bundles. Look for the one tucked up under the dash right above the pcm. It will have heat shrink black tip on it.
