Banks 6 Gun parameters

I just purchased a 2006 F-250 4x4 with the banks 6 gun and PDA on it. I was wondering if anyone could give me the settings they are running because you can go through and change the fueling and torque converter lockup and all that good stuff. i know SCT is the way to go on these trucks but I am going to work with what I have for the moment. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Set it to stock, and just use the gauges until you get a SCT. There's a reason for going with a SCT with custom tunes, when you start messing with motor settings, you could be doing more harm than good.

I'm not ragging on you, just don't wanna see someone mess up there motor or trans.

Hopefully someone who's had luck with the Banks tuning will chime in.

I agree with lilpooh, keep it stock and you keep everything in good running order until you you go with a SCT. Play with the banks before and you could be looking at a new tranny or injectors or both... So instead of the 300 for the SCT and the 400 for the CTS it could be 2K for the Trany and 2K for the injectors.

Thanks guys, I think your right..... This is my 3rd 6.0 and I love the trucks... If the motor is done up right, I thinks its one of the best diesels out there. I still have my old 2000 F-350 7.3L and she is still going strong at 240k miles

We have an awful lot of fun in the 6.0L. I was in a 6.7L yesterday and it was nice but it doesnt sound like a diesel.. Nice truck I just want that turbo wistle and the clacking!!! Plus no urea or DPF on the 6.0L! IMO the less emission equipment the better.

I agree 100% on less emissions... That's part of the reason I went back to a 6.0 that and Im not paying $60k for a pickup.... My buddy has a fully loaded 6.7 and it is super nice and super fast but I like to know I on a diesel... Smoke, loud, turbo, etc. Plus this 06 I picked up only had 48K miles on it!
