no it just gets asked everyday.... LET IT BE KNOWN: people with spartan love spartan and people with H&S love H&S and people with SCT love SCT. With that being said... get an H&S mini maxx and never look back.

sell the xrt pro and get a mini max and call it a day. you have the tunes your use to and a monitor with shift on the fly options. I've ran both and like H&S tunes better, but thats me.

Mini Maxx. Nothing is wrong with the Spartan but more things are right with the H&S.

The DashDAQ is a superior tuning device and we offer more tunes than H&S. H&S tuning has proven itself though. You're not hurting yourself using that tuning.

You honestly can't go wrong either way. It all comes down to personal preference in the end. I think the DashDAQ speaks for itself though.

Do you have to have an aftermarket air filter to run a Mini Maxx or Spartan programmer? I know it's recommend for the Mini Maxx but would it be bad if you ran it with the stock air filter? I have to money for the Mini Maxx and I am about to pull the trigger and buy it, but I don't have the extra 300-500 for the aftermarket air filter just yet. Should I wait and buy it all together in 5 months when I have the money or go ahead and buy the Mini Maxx or Spartan now?
