mini max ? s

I know you don't have to have sensors installed on the delete pipe to run the mini max. But I can buy a dpf delete pipe with bungs for very cheap. Can I install the sensors on the delete pipe with the mini max or should I try to plug them somehow? Any advice?

Second question I'm looking at an used mini max to purchase. Do they need unlock codes or do I need the h&s dealer to unlock it or something. I want to make sure if I purchase a used one I can just plug it in and play.

I ran mine in my delete pipe with no issues until I got my 5" exhaust.

For bolts to screw in the holes, do I actually need the sensor plug bolts or do you have recommendation On what size fits them?

Or if I keep sensors in delete pipe dose that interfere with function of the mini max?

Also any guidance in what to look for or ask about when buying a used mini max?

Not to sure about the bolts but I had no issues leaving the sensors in the delete pipe.
Ensure that if you are buying used the original vehicle that it was installed on is returned to stock.

the bolts are metric and afe or someone was selling the 3 of them in a kit to plug the holes. Or you could just weld them closed if you don't need them.

I will have to agree with the bolts. But if you are buying the mini max used make sure it is unlock (orginal owner turned his truck back to stock) or it cost around $500 to get the mini max unlocked.
