go with the h&s mini max and 5" exhaust the tuner itself is 901 and change i believe and the exhaust prices would differ depending on what you want. But i would talk with Nate from PTP hes awesome to deal with and great customer service

mini maxx is 900$ and i was looking at the edge cts its under 650$. the max horsepower on the mini maxx is 120 with my dpf still connected. the max hp with edge cts is 100hp. other than the hp difference what are the differences and are they worth the difference in price? and will that extra 20hp with the mini maxx be much more noticeable?

Yes, adding a tuner can potentially void your power train warranty.

Look at it this way. The engine and PCM were designed for a certain amount of HP/TQ. If you reprogram the PCM and add an additional amount of HP and the engine goes south. It will be very easy for Ford to point the finger at the tuner.

If your worried about the warranty, you shouldn't run a tuner. You have to party to play.
