Just ordered mini MAXx and dpf cat delete

So I just ordered mini and the Rudy's dpf cat delete pipe for stock exhaust. Any tips on install. My truck doesn't have the stock tip its cut off to right in front of the rear wheel coming right out of the dpf... I think truck used to be deleted but dealership put dpf and cat back on.. I have seen pictures of it with a tip before so not sure what was done. Should I order a tip as well? Or will it be ok to run from the straight pipe?

The only tip I can think of is to install install the tuner before you remove the dpf and install the delete pipe. Every once in awhile you get a tuner that won't load or just has issues, this way if you have any issues your truck will still be driveable without having to re-install the dpf. It doesn't usually happen but just in case. As for the exit in the exhaust, I'm not sure about that because I haven't seen any truck with an exit in front of the tires. I'm surprised the dealership would install a dpf and not route it back to the original position.

Don't want to hijack your thread but I'm in the same boat. Was wondering the same thing about all the possible settings in the minmaxx. Maybe some of the vets can help us out here. I will be doing the DPF delete with my minimaxx and keeping the stock exhaust for now. What settings are recommended?

You will have to try them out and see what works for you. It seems like the higher hp settings yield better fuel mileage if you can keep you foot out of it.
