Banks IQ?

I was searching online and I found someone selling a Banks IQ with Speed loders for $750. It comes with everything to include the window mount? Is that a good deal? Also has anyone used this thing before? If so what do you think about it?

Why settle for carp, when you can have tuna!! LOL!!

Seriously, the SCT with custom tunes is the best option for the 6.0. You can buy a new SCT X3 with 3 custom tunes included in the price for $425-$429. Then you would just need a monitor/gauge solution like the ones posted in this very informative link (read it!!). I suggest you get a monitor solution before you run any programmer.

Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.


If your looking to get a "all in one" tuner and monitor, then check out the new SCT TS. It just came out, so info is limited.


If your looking to save some cash by buying a used SCT, read this link.

Too expensive. Look for one at half that price

I'd rather be fishing

Depends on where you are in the country. TSD, gearhead, quick tricks, innovative, etc.
