H&S Programer

I am A new member. I recently purchased A 2008 6.4 f250 diesel. I am looking at the H&S mini maxx programer. Can anyone tell how to install this product and if it is hard I a mostly worried about the delete pipes I am not sure if this is A do it yourself project. I also read on A few websites that the programer is illegal. Does anyone know if this is true? I live in Texas (Galveston county) and not sure if the dpf is ok to remove by law or is that only contained to certain states ie: california. I am also wondering if I do remove the dpf and egr will I be able to pass an emissions test? Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

its really easy to install the programmer, the delete pipe isnt that hard to install but you need some help from a friend. as long as you dont have to have your emissions checked in your city your fine.

Don't know about the pipe install...I hear it is only nuts & bolts & the new ones you dont need the sensors. Yes it is illegal to remove the DPF, It's a Fed thing, not state. No you won't pass emmisions. Yes it will void your warranty.
Hope this helps. As soon as my warranty dies, this is the route I'm goin'.

Thank you thats what I was afraid of. Looks like the pipes would have to be switched out every year before inspection. If its nuts and bolts it may not be A big deal.

In texas you can't tamper with any emissions stuff, they're supposed to check for DOC, DPF, and Muffler. I put mine back on when I get inspected.

I was not aware that they checked for the emissions stuff, just that they basically did an OBDII scan. I just got that info from asking around, not from an authoritative source. They also said that if one place does not pass you, just go to another place.

Can anobody confirm what the actual process is? I live in the Dallas area and planned to delete this spring...

I do know for a fact that they look for the DOC to be in place. As for the other two, I'm not sure how many of those places know what a DPF even is but they are supposed to look for a muffler as well.

I have several friends with 7.3s and 6.0s that have no DOC and have issues getting it passed and have to pay extra to get it to pass, which still isn't much considering the fee is only 14.50.

I was under the impression all they do is visual inspection for emissions components and a short drive, I never saw the guy that inspected mine hook anything into the obd2 port and in fact if he did he woulda had to unplug the livewire.

Several guys on here have reported in tx they got theirs inspected with straight pipe but I bet it depends where you live and what that stations employees actually know of or care about. Straight pipes are probably more common in weatherford than in Addison.

Ok, thanks. That is good to know. I guess I don't really mind swapping it out each year. It would just be nice to know before I go in.

What is the deal with your friends without a DOC? You can simply pay an extra fee if you are not compliant? I would pay the fee to not swap it out every year.

I don't know about Texas, but in California only some countys require a check every two years. So maybe that might be the case in Texas. Check you county regs. You might be OK
