H&S mini max

Just ordered a mini max tuner, flo pro exhaust and delete kit for my 2012 6.7. I figured I needed to get it before everyone runs out. I'm just not sure if I want to run it with the mini max only or go ahead and delete it. Would like to know of some of the pros or cons.
Thanks for the help.

Its a tough call. either tune it and delete it and not count on warranty because most likely you will get denied unless your dealer is really cool. or keep it stock till out of warranty but risk the extra miles of the emission junk on your truck. by the way they can still tell if it has been tuned if you dont delete is so running the mini maxx with dpf on tunes still risks you losing the warranty. just something to think about. its a tough call, im sure others will chime in to persaude you to delete that junk HAHA, but save the stuff you take off, never know what could change tomorrow and require you to have it

they dont always send a rep out ive only seen a rep once, and that was for a 6.7 that was having trans shift problems. they dont come out very often. normally its one guy that is in charge of a very large area. so he only comes out when he has to.

call your local dealership and ask if there would be a problem with it. i have personally worked on many truck with exhaust deleted. if we deny working on it than we dont get paid at the dealership.

Been there done that as a tech, that's my point behind this!! You would get paid cp time which is higher then warranty time, IF u denied it under warranty and the customer stayed

i have had trucks towed out of my bay by the customers when warenty is denied. im not trying to affend you jayz but at my dealership all of us fleet guys work on trucks with deletes done with no problems from ford. as you know its all about how you right your story to ford to approve it, and thats not very hard. i know that CP pays better but i have had a lot of customers deny after there is no warrenty because there are cheaper shops in town. im just saying from my point of view.

back to the original poster. if you decide to delete just keep your stock exhaust with all the sensors, and when you have a problem just swap it back to stock, than everyone wins.
