What should I do?

Well I ordered a Mini Maxx and will be in today. I ordered it the morning after I saw the H&S newsletter just incase. I wasn't quite ready to order it and tune. But now that I have it I know I'm gonna have the itch. So what should I do? Tune now or wait a lil while and let the warranty run out? Pros & Cons of both please!

If you can afford to fix it if something breaks, then tune away. If not, wait until your warranty expires and then go for it. Or be up front with your service writer about it and see what he says. Some guys don't have a problem working in it if you put it back to stock before bringing it in. Just don't try to hide it, it will most likely not work out. Have fun!

In the same boat with you. Ordered mine two days ago and the clock just turned over 16,000. I wanted to wait till 30,000 but not for sure If i can hold out. Just had a tire sensor fault come up today and thought it might be a sign . We will see when the parts come in. I figure I worse comes to worse we can always reinstall and hope for the best.

Just install it!

I had the tire sensor fault message all the time then i had all my tire sensors replaced when I got new wheels and tires and it comes up again now. Or it did till I shut off the tpms with my mini Max

I'm a little nervous myself. Mine will be in tomorrow and I'm a little worried about people talking about the EPA and warranty issues. I would just hate for my navigation to go out and they void my warranty because of a programmer.

They can only void your warranty if they can prove the modification caused the problem and if your gps went its covered under a different warrenty the power train warrenty is what is void when you program
