NooB Tuner questions....please be kind!

I am considering the following..
Delete kit tuned by H&S Mini Maxx with EGR Pyro kit.
Flo Pro 4 in downpipe back exhaust.
Questions are as follows...

1. Does the Mini Maxx have to remained plugged in at all times or ONLY if you want to make changes "on the fly"?
2. Where are you mounting the Mini Maxx?
3. Where does the EGT Pyro kit get its signal from and how difficult is it to install/mount it?
4. Does the dashboard info center display any Diesel Exhaust Fluid messages or warnings if the delete is done?
5. Can all the DEF tank and lines be removed?
6. Is the exhaust note THAT noticable?
7. Is the STOCK airbox/filter adequate IF you don't intent on running the "HOT" tune?
8.Is an EGR kit necessary/required or just something nice to have?

Thanks for your time to reply..

You have to leave it pluged in. I mounted mine at the left hand side of the streeing wheel. The pyro is not that bad I think its like 5 bolts if I remember correctly you will use one of your stock egt sensors. there is no message on mine for dpf removed. You will notice a diffrence with dpf and the egr removed does not matter. I highly recomend the egt gauge after installing mine I seen temps I didnt think I was having. call H&S the guys over there ar very helpful on explainning what you need I just did mine 2 weeks ago and had alot of questions answered

1. Yes it has to remain plugged in or it goes to "no more mode"

2. It comes with a windshield suction cup mount. Most guys mount in bottom left of the windshield. And run the cables inside the side panel drivers side of dash

3.EGT kit uses a pyro from your stock exhaust and mounts where the EGR inlet pipe is on the exhaust manifold and plugs into the EGR pyro plug ( just a side note. Removing the intake tube makes access to the bolts on the EGR inlet pipe a hell of a lot easier)

4.No messages what so ever

5. Yes the DEF tank can be removed along with the lines. (DEF pump will still run when truck is turned off. It runs when stock to drain the DEF lines)

6. Its noticeable when you giver hard on the throttle (causes a ear boner usually) and is relatively stock sounding in the cab when driving highway speeds

7. Stock air box flows enough air for even the Hot tune. A CAI is a plus tho

8.EGR delete is really NOT( edit ) needed. Just use the EGT block plates and make sure you unplug the two EGR valves as per H&S instruction on their website

To add to question 1, Alberta stroker is correct but I also wanted to mention that you can drive the truck without the tuner connected, it will still drive if that's what your asking, of course as previously mentioned you will be in no power mode but the truck will still start up and run. Don't know why someone would do this but I guess it's good to know that if my tuner craps out I can still drive my truck

There are 2 different mini's one with a pyro kit, one without. the above posts refer to the one without the kit. there is a pyro you can get from H&S but just use one from the exhaust.
