Guys with programmers

Just out of curiosity, what kind of performance gains, fuel mileage gains and so on are you fellas with H&S programmers seeing? Was it worth it in losing your warranty on a 50k+ truck? I've heard 2 different things about it being untraceable so I was just wondering. Thanks

My mods are in my signature. Before I did a dpf delete. My mini max gained me about 1mpg then stock. After I deleted dpf im seeing about 3-3.5mpg gain from stock. not to mention more power.
If your really interested in mileage gains tune and delete dpf.

For the warranty question. For any warranty work to be voided, the use or installation of after market products has to be proven to be the cause of the issue. Plus it varies from dealer to dealer, some are more lienant then others for after market products.

There is several threads on here about people worried about warranty issues.

I am in the same boat as the OP, except I have a 2008 with a spartan on it so I hate to switch to H&S because I have already dumped that $$$$. I see you gained up to 3.5, so what is your mileage now?? I am seeing 14.5 - 15.5 avg mpgs on my 08 with dpf delete. I would need to get 17.5 & up to make it worth wild to switch

Here is a pic of my trip monitor off my truck.

It was 90% freeway driving 74-77mph

and i hand calculated and it matched my trucks calculations.

before the deletes on the same trip, i only avg 18 i believe.

If i slow down to 60-65mph ive seen up to 22.8mpg.. but i never drive that slow lol

Im not completely sure, but its a gamble for you to notice better mileage by switching to H&S.

Although i do have a buddy with a 6.4L H&S tuned and deleted, and he sees 17-18mpg..

I'm not so much worried about the fuel mileage as I am about the warranty void. I would hate to spend about a grand on an H&S and lose my warranty which I also got for 100k miles. Just curious as to if y'all think it was worth it to add. I know it varies from dealer to dealer and some people say if you take it off they can't prove it was ever installed but from what I've read other places it's pretty easy to tell if there has been a programmer. I'd love to have one and do all the deletes but after my 6.0 nightmare I'd hate to keep taking it off to go to the shop.

Well what i like about my H&S mini maxx, i can uninstall it from my 6.7L and download different truck files and install it on several different diesels made by ford, gm, and dodge.

And dont worry, these 6.7's arent anything like the 6.0's after 17000 miles the only time mine foes to my dealer is for regular service. and once to get a new driver side power mirror under warranty (never worked from when i drove it off the lot).

I guess if I got my head out I would have read that in your sig, what size tires, factory is a 34", well atleast on 20" Wheels, But I thought my spare was the same size and its an 18" Wheel And why does your King Ranch have 18's, I thought they had a different wheel from the XLT and Lariats
