H&S Confusion

I was looking at buying the mini max cause at some point I will want to do the deletes. What I am confused about is there are multiple sites saying you can run the mini max with DPF intact. Is this true? If so ill buy one for now that way I can do the deletes later cause I know the government is trying to shut these types of tuners down.

Your best bet is to buy everything and then put it on at a time you feel comfortable with. Your fuel mileage with DPF present tuning will get worse most likely because of more regens. If you are gonna tune, might as well go all the way. Once you tune it whether its DPF present of removed the dealer can tell. SO, GO ALL OR NOT AT ALL is my opinion. I'm sure many would agree with my logic.

well I already have prices for the mini max + unlock code + 4" ss exhaust. So I want to do it but may not install for a little bit at least until the bumper to bumper is up. I was just curious if it was possible to run the H&S with DPF intact. Thanks for the input

It's possible but not recommended.

If I had to do it all over again, I would have gotten the XRT pro and done a three gage setup vs the minimax.

I would buy it now, and if you are wanting to keep your warranty a little longer don't install it now.
