Installed the H&S Mini Maxx and Pro flo dp back!

Just got back from the shop. Glad I paid them to install the exhaust. Beat sitting on my snow covered driveway! The stock exhaust must have weighed 250lbs with all the emmission crap. First impression was very impressed. No droning. The motor is still quiet but the turbo is very impressive. At idle its very docile. Hit the gas and its a beast! All three tunes are nuts, although I plan on keeping it on the mild setting. I love the fact that you can adjust for tire size as well, as Im running 37" tires. The pro flo exhaust had to be cut and welded. Fit was not the best so Im glad I had a shop do it. Only cost me $225 for everything installed so I'd gladly pay that again. MPG is already going up. Will update on that.

Awesome man! I thought they could only adjust up to 35" tires?? Have you noticed better shifting with the truck adjusted correctly for the tires? I have 35.5" tires and my shifting seems really messed up

Well I didn't try to adjust the tire size till just now. Manual says adjusts up to 39", but the mini maxx only goes to 34". Kinda pissed me off, but maybe Im doin something wrong. I'll call tech Monday. Still runs great though.

So the final answer is 34"?? Thats dissapointing, I had heard 35" and figured that would be close enough to my tires. I do know that 08-10 trucks the dealer could adjust to pretty much any tire size and the 11's are limited to the stock tire size options. I wonder if that has some thing to do with the H&S tuning. I hope they have it figured out in a month when Im pulling the trigger

BTW...tranny shifts much nicer then stock. Stock was always wishy washy, never knowing which gear to go in at lower half throttle speeds. Now its very crisp and firm no matter how much throttle.

I haven't noticed any difference in my tranny shifting since H&S hasn't done any tranny tunning in their tuner for our truck yet. They are still working on that also
