SPARTAN OR H&S MINI MAXX

So i have been talking to my buddies and some people have been saying that the spartan is the way to go and others saying H&S i am undecided and thought i could get a little help from someone to tell me the truth with that is honestly the best tuner?

ALSO on another note, what is the best 5" turbo back true straight pipe exhaust?

There is no best tuner. Each of them have their functions that appeal to different people. They both get great reviews. The h&s's have jumped in price quite a bit also so they are pretty much the same price from what I have seen.

Between those two I would choose HS because of MCC. flo pro for exhaust.

Like super duty said each of them have features that appeal. I like the spartan better for monitoring but for me in the end I went with h&s because of shift on the fly and how the defuel a worked and really liked the cold coolant option. Now that I've used it I use the same tune and never shift on the fly but still glad I chose h&s

there absolutely is a "best" tuner... and it's an H&S Mini Maxx.

tons of tuning options out of the box, shift on the fly, defuel protection, custom tuning option that allows multiple people INCLUDING THE END USER (this is unparalleled by any other tuner manufacturer!!) to write. custom tunes.

and no expensive re-licensing fee if you want to use it on another truck.

and H&S customer service is 2nd to none...

What's good about the h&s mini maxx is that if you tow frequently you change from the performance tune to the tow tune with a touch of a button.... And you can't do that with the spartan. So that is a nice little benefit with the mini maxx is the shift tunes on the fly. They're both good tuners tho, but my vote is with H&S!
