just bought H&S mini .. will I be happy ???

Im new to the ford truck scene, always had a gm, but the time has finally came.
I bought a new 2012 f250, orderd the H&S mini max race { I think its called mini max race } I know its race, and mini !!! lol !!!

anyhow, I also orderd the 5 inch stainless exaughst & an air filter / intake setup.

Im a drag racer , I got a diesel because of previous experience with them back in the late 2006-08.

I want this baby to run as best it can & not tear the trans up. I read that the spartan made more HP, but never saw TQ numbers. and we all know TQ is what you FEEL !!!!

So, did I buy the right programmer ? will I be happy ? all my parts get here tommorow & I just bought the truck yesterday, so Im hopeing I wont be rideing stock past tommorow !!!

your replys are welcome and encouraged. I have NO IDEA what the fords like, whats avaliable for them ?
the tech I spoke with at H&S said the fuel system was maxed out at 150 extra hp. { but spartan claims 200 } are their any fuel system upgrades available ?

thanks again, Steve

Yes, yes, you def want to get the egr delete or delete the long pipe on the egr w block plates and use one of the dpf pyro sensors to read the egts. H&s is far superior to spartan tuner all the way around from the programs to the customer service.

You made the right choice with the H&S for sure. They actually tested their own shop truck until something failed and the first thing that happened on stock bottom end was the tranny started slipping at close to 900rwhp and about 1700ftlbs. This was on aftermarket turbo/fueling/nitrous and 40" tires but never the less. The truck has the potential to be a monster if you wanna get crazy with it. Run it on HOT for the best MPG and performance overall and expect a lot of wheel spin
