H&S question, axle wrap?

I have a mini maxx and just finished my full exhaust install with down pipe and put the hd 300 on the truck. I went for a test drive with it on hot and i feel my bolt on tuned 6.0 had more tq out of the hole? it used to spin 35's like nothing my 6.4 is also on 35's but not even a chirp. I checked and it is on the hd300 is this just me? Am i getting bad axle wrap that's why it feels this way? Just lost thought there would be way more power, maybe i expected to much? Still love the truck either way and it smokes like crazy.

You should have a ton of power. Are you sure the power level is hot?

Depends too on what low boost fueling your on. My truck felt like a pig out of the hole on 5, runs the best on 3. been running the kem 210, it is my favorite.

Is your filter minder coming on. My truck would suck the filter minder in with an S&B intake with the lid on.
