Is my MiniMaxx Race Tuner worth anything?

Hey guys. Long story short here. I have a minimaxx with the H&S dash mount and everything with it (including receipt), aside from the box.

Fell on some hard times a few months back and the bank got my baby back. I took out the H&S and everything before they took it.

My question is, can it be resold to someone who can use it, or is it locked for eternity? I had paid 100.00 to H&S for the 6.7 option key or something like that. The unit allows DPF delete, and is pre-whatever that EPA nonsense was.

I just don't want to sell someone a brick if it can't be reused somehow. Sadly there is no new 'stroke in my near future.

I appreciate all the help you all were to me when I was buying parts and such for the truck. THis forum was invaluable!

Keep it up!

Did you get it unmarried when you took it out of the truck? If not, I believe there is a fee associated with getting it unlocked, and even so I don't think they will unlock it as a race tuner. It will become a street tuner. That may not be right, just what I remember reading somewhere in the past week or so.

If you unlocked it from your old truck (returned truck to stock) then you can sell it no problem. If you didn;t unmarry it from the old truck, you have a cool paperweight because H&S will not unlock the Race tuners...

I totaled my 2012 with H&S Black Maxx race tuner installed and couldnt get the tune off. So sold it to a guy for cheap and he paid h&s $100 to get tune back.

I honestly don't remember what the status was when I removed it. It was a bit of a rush. My gut tells me I had it tuned upon removal. I had gone back and forth while taking it in and of the shop for radiator work so I can't be sure of its final status. Is there a menu or something in the tuner that will tell me where it stands?

If it was not reset to factory before I took it off, whats the end game there? Paperweight? That is a huge bummer if so. It was quite expensive!

I am not 100% if there is a menu as I don't have an H&S yet (working on it). I believe that it does though. Somebody else who has experience here will chime in.

If it is unmarried, what I would do is call or PM H&S and see what the options are.

This keeps coming up SO often. I just emailed H&S directly and ask if they will unlock a RACE tuner anymore. Will post reply ASAP!

Look forward to their response!

As posted earlier, I believe that I read they will unlock it, but not as a race tuner due to the legalities involving the recent EPA bull. It will become a street tuner.
