delete question

I've been running my truck with h&s dpf on tuning. I'm planning to delete tomorrow. Will everything be fine to download dpf off tuning or will I need update or anything. My only problem with updating is that I have a mac computer so I can't update it. Also, do I need to download dpf tuning on my truck before I remove the dpf or download once I'm done?

I did pipes first but didn't start truck til I did mini setup. Make sure u turn everything off in truck and don't open doors or do anything that draws power. Heard of a few stories of blanking PCM and guys being stuck til they go to dealer to get flashed. I hooked a charger up to batt to be safe.

I dont think you need to put it on a charger, but turn eveything off takes about 10 mins to download and load everything. As for a mac computer and updating im not sure. My friend has a mm and could do it on a mac but he had a program that would covert from mac to windows somehow. I would download the tune to the truck first and then delete. You should update from a windows based computer if you can first also.

If you can get ahold of a Windows disk go download virtualbox.org. It's like parallels, but free. You can run Windows on your mac to update your Mini. I just updated the other day with no issues. H&S you need to make a mac updater!

I can normally update mine with my Mac using the manual updater. I have only had a problem once but the rest of the time it has always worked.

So it sounds like you got it deleted. What do you think?
