Question Stacking sct with banks bullet

Is it a good idea to stack an sct tuner with a banks bullet to my psd? The upgrades are in my sig. And from what i know my bullet module is a pressure box and its a fueling only module/gauge all in one. The manual says i can stack it with a programmer. My truck is my daily driver so i want better mileage and maybe more TC lock up but im not really looking for any more power (its already got 226k miles) but it runs perfect. So should i stack an sct with my banks bullet or would that be pointless? And no im not going to remove my bullet module. Thanks in advance

I will advise that you remove the Banks Bullet from the truck.

If you're looking for something more out of your tune, you should contact the writer and have your tune adjusted (or in the case of the stock 'canned' files in the SF3, get a set of custom tunes).

Here's the reason I'm telling you to remove the Banks Bullet, you don't accomplish anything by stacking programs other then tearing things up. The Bullet cannot truly monitor your engine the way it needs to be, like an Edge Insight or ScangaugeII would.

If you don't mind me asking, why are you so set in keeping the Bullet in the truck?

You wont see any gain by stacking the bullet with the SCT whatsoever.

Reason im keeping it on is because is hasnt give me any problems just a good reliable small power upgrade and monitors boost and the fueling level. Plus it looks great mounted in my single gauge pillar. Also can change power levels while im driving too, although its always on sport mode. But it does not advance timing or tune the trans, not that it needs too because its not adding big power.

Anytime you alter the power level in these trucks, or shift that level of power, the Banks is going to rely on the transmission to relearn the new powerband. Regardless of how slight that change may appear, its going to take a toll on the transmission over time.

I'd say you'd be better with an SCT for tuning, and scrap the Banks, but its your truck.
