H and S Mini Max

Just wondering what problems anyone has had with there trucks after installing mini max. I've put 30000 miles on my truck since installing mini max egr and cat dpf delete but tomorrow I'm taking my truck to the third mechanic to fix it whatever the case maybe the first two said hpfp. The mechanic I am letting diagnose and work on my truck seems to be very good with the 6.4 I have known him since I bought my truck three years ago and I believe him to be honest. He has doubts about the mini max and says it can effect my truck even though I run low power settings. What are you alls thoughts on this?

Of all the tuners available H&S is one of the best & safest out there.

If it's the hpfp then it's not the mini maxx and I highly doubt it's the tuners fault no matter what the problem is. Hpfp failures are common on 6.4's. I think the general consensus is not IF it fails but, WHEN it fails. Mini maxx is one of the best out there for our trucks. I wouldn't note it as the cause of any problems

I was told when i did the same exact mods as you if i did not go with a fuel system like FASS i would end up having to replace the hpfp down the road which would be more expensive than the FASS. Im fairly new to diesels so i have no idea why they said this, I did not go with the FASS I was about to but am leaning towards the setup Fuel Labs is putting out in another couple weeks i am told that will not need a sump as an extra bonus

^^ What he said. Get either the fuel lab setup or the airdog 2. Better filtration/water separation.

Was also told that injectors would be next another expensive job because of the air in the fuel

I use the Baldwin water separator and Donaldson filter for the best possible filtration/water separation.

You can get a Fuel Lab through Midwest and in a few weeks Side Action Diesel so that it will work on a 6.4 but I haven't heard that Fuel Lab will be releasing their 6.4 version in a few weeks. Do you have a link to that?
