mini maxx refuel settings???;

When i added my dp back exhaust to my truck which already had the mini maxx installed one of the settibgs was refueling setting or something like that. It was a scale from zero to five. Zero being no smoke, five being a lot of smoke. What does this setting control and what level are most people running. Whats the best for power or mpg

Low boost fueling is what I think you mean....3 is the stock setting on the tuner...what it means is how much fuel is given to the injectors at low boost ....so at low boost like talking off from a red light and you giver a bit she will roll coal with the setting at 3 or more ..the lower you go the less fuel is given at low boost ..I'm running the 300 with low boost fuel @3 or 4 it feel like it has more power to me

I run the 300 tune with the low boost set on 0. Still more smoke than I'd like to see, but definitely livable. level 3 was just too much. can't imagine 4 or 5

I run mine on 5 with the HD 300 tune. If you roll into the throttle and don't stab it the smoke is minimal. I like how quick the turbo spools up on level 5.

I've heard that every engine is different on how much it will smoke. Some smoke at level 1 or 2 and some not. I have never moved mine off of 3 and I still haven't seen any cloud when I take off. I haven't tried 4 or 5, but I'm happy with where it's at now. Only thing I have noticed is that my tip has a little more soot on it than before, but nothing obnoxious.

I run mine on 0 and it does still smoke. it is definatly a performance loss on my pickup with it set that low. it seems to only effect the pickup when really rodding on it. if you were racing it you wouldnt want to run it that low but just a dd its good. havnt noticed any milege difference.

yeah, it's less responsive transitioning to boost, but once the turbos are lit up, it still flies!

I just don't like puffing smoke everywhere
