Lets unleash the beast, pulled the trigger & ordered a few parts!

Hello, after reading up on this mods page I just have questions on a few steps on this tune & delete of a 6.4L. Pulled the trigger & ordered mini maxx, Egr delete, cac, 4in afe Mach force Xp down pipe exhaust over the weekend. I Installed a CIA last week & looking to install tuner & exhaust & then get to Egr once time permits.

Should I do all parts at the same time, or can I tune w/exhaust & turn off Egr? Or is the intake still eating up the soot until Egr is blocked off completely? Any comments or concerns please let me know, looking to open this beast up! Thanks, Jayson.

Nice find. The mini says to install on the truck to see if it is ok. May do that first for a test run. Then dig in to the exhaust. Egr.
Be sure and update the tuner with the latest firmware and tune. U will love it

Well I got most of the parts in & I'm excited to hook this race tuner up. Only thing keeping me back is storing the stock program for reference for the future from what I've read up on? Can anyone chime in on that, I guess I'm apprehensive b/c of the re-flashing issues I've read about, or are those issues something other than tuner additions?

I don't think the reflashes have anything to do with tuners. But your mini max will store your original flash. If you need to just return it to stock. Does that sound right?

Install went well & tuner is loaded to truck w/tunes that come w/it. Did trans re-learn on performance mode & definitely feel the difference & potential of this beast. Deletes & custom tunes to follow!

The mini maxx does not store the tune off your truck. It has the factory flash on it at all times that it will load onto the truck so no need to worry about backing up the file on the computer.

The trans relearn will speed up the process a little but the trans will continue to learn for the next two weeks before it smooths up. Just take it easier for the next two weeks and let the trans learn on its own. It will still be firmer shifts but they will still smooth out compared to when you first download a tune
