Question Banks??

I'm new to the performance diesel aftermarket add ons. I have a 2003 f250 with a 6.0 that is completely stock. A friend at work has an older 7.3 that he recently added a tuner and exhaust (Banks) and was very impressed at his results.
I don't see much about the Banks products here.
I'm not trying to stir a bees nest or anything, but was wondering why not much on Banks, and who are the better manufacturers.
I tow a bass boat, so the power I have stock is adequate. A little more in the power department, and a boost in mileage is what I'm really looking for while maintaining dependability.
Be kind, this is my first post.
Thanks,
Tidalbass

the banks stuff is generally way overpriced, for more for your money get an SCT for the tuner and a 4' turbo back exhaust, but you need at least some gauges like Boost, Pyrometer and trans temp...

Question Trans. Temp.

I'm assuming a more accurate guage for trans. temp than is already in the dash stock?

when my ISSPRO Trans temp gauge goes up to 200-210 the stock temp gauge rarely moves past half way. Stock gauge is crap.

banks don't get much love around here. Everyone on any diesel forum you post on is gonna recommend the sct xcal2 with custom tunes from a tuner of your choice.

Ditto, minus the intake. Your stocker breather box is plenty good, flows well and best filtration there is. Period. No need to spend the hundreds on aftermarket unless you're planning on making big power down the road...
