Finally tuned!

After waiting 2 long years I finally got the darn thing tuned up! With the immense info on this site and great advice within the threads I went with a mini-maxx, 5" flo-pro dp back straight pipe, s&b intake, and kem special edition card with all their tunes. Got it all from Aaron at Rudy's for a great price and put it all on yesterday. Let me join the masses of converts and say that wow is this thing powerful, it's almost scary. Never in a million years would I have ever thought that I would be able to break 35" tires nearly 13" wide loose on dry pavement at 40 mph in 4th gear. Truly unbelievable really, and that's only on the h&s 250 tune! I'll keep the kem tunes in a drawer for a couple weeks to get used to the h&s first, then I'll break them out. Enough ranting though, just wanted to share my excitement and thank everybody for this awesome site and the great info to be had here!

2008 F-250 Badlander...2.5" level, 5" blocks, 35's on 22's, H&S Mini-Maxx, 5" Flo-Pro straight pipe, S&B, KEM
