H&S Settings

Hey guys,

I should be getting my H&S Mini Maxx, and delete pipe next week, but wanted to reach out and find some successful set ups on the H&S. I am a novice at this, so I don't want to do anything to my truck that I'll regret.

I am mainly looking for improved economy and reliability, so I am not racing. I wanted to know the best way to program the transmission, shift patterns, anything really to do with the transmission.

I have an 08 F350 DRW 4x4 with 4.10 rear gears. I town a 30' 5er about once a month, otherwise this is my daily driver believe it or not! I love driving this truck. I don't want to aggressive shift pattern, but again one that will net me the best economy, and will still be ok when towing. I do have the "tow mode" on the tree, so around town I can use that towing. My camper really only weights about 9,000 -10,000 lbs loaded depending on how many kids we have.

Thanks guys, always open to suggestions.

I have been running the hd300 for awhile now (20,000kms I think ) and it has worked great for me. I run on the hot setting most times for daily driving. For towing I turn it down to no power or mild setting. I have tried all the tranny tunes and have settled on the s1m. I would probably just load up the mild tunes and start there. From what I have read the s2m most resembles the stock shifting. Also if you use the tow/haul it is recommended to use the no power adjustable setting because the tow/haul shifting isn't designed to handle a lot of extra horsepower. Most people see the best mileage on the highest power setting but with the shift on the fly it's easy to try any of the 4 settings on a particular tune to find out what will work best for you.

I'va had mine for a month now. I'm also running the hd300 setting with the default trans setting. I ran the frist two weeks with it set on hot. I live on a gravel road with snow, honestly it was hard to keep from spinning the wheels every time i took off. Dialed it down to mild and it fits my driving style better. Smooth shifts and less spin. Mix of city and hwy driving i am seeing 16. I do notice that longer hi idle times clobber my mpg. Thats how it goes in the winter.

Thanks guys, all good stuff. Now I have had a Bully Dog on for a year or so, is this going to be that much different when I do the delete and run the HD300 Tune?

I guess I can put my foot in it every once in a while. lol

Thanks
