Use H&S Mini Maxx For Gauges For 7.3

I have a h&s mini maxx that I use for my 6.4 (Also have a spartan). Is it possible to use it on my 7.3 just for gauges purposes. I hooked it up to my 7.3 plugged it in it booted up and says initialising communication and gauges are blank. would it work for 7.3. Please help

H&S website doesn't show the mini maxx to have 7.3 support.

Is there anyway to call H&S and ask them to make a custom 7.3 tuning. I know it sounds impossible but anything possible lol thanks for the reply though.

Just throwing this out there.
Why not sell the Minimax, probably get most or all of your money back, and buy a 7.3 specific monitor/tuner from DP or PHP?

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

As far as I know, H&S does not deal with the 7.3L platform at all. If you are interested in a unit that is similar, check out our Infinity. It is the most advanced/enhanced monitor/programmer you can get for the 7.3L. It can hold our custom tunes, monitor generic and Ford enhanced data, run vehicle specific diagnostic tests, datalog, read/clear DTC's, and you can add additional inputs/sensors to it for things you would like to monitor that the PCM does not see. This would include EGT and fuel pressure.

HERE is a link to check it out.

Let me know if you have any questions.

If you get the Infinity, there is no reason for the CTS
