Hi Im the new guy. and i have some questions (please read)

Ok i am new to the diesel performance. I have recently bought this truck off my grandfather. i am sure some of you guys have seen it before, since it was on the cover of off road mag a year or so back.

The New 2004 Ford F350 Redesigned With Fiberglass - Off Road Magazine


Anyway. My truck has a banks 6gun with speed loader. My question is what does the speed loader do? Also right now the 6 gun does not work i am hoping to pull it out tomorrow and send it in to see what is up with it.

Also when i do get this 6gun working is it ok to use level 6 or is it hard on the motor?

Anyway i would love to hear what you guys have to say. I am hear to learn. i have a 500hp twin turbo mitsu so i know turbos and how they work i am just very new to the diesel performance side of the house. so if ya can teach me i would be greatfull.

Gale Banks prides himself on offering performance products that will give good power but be safe at the same time. You should be alright running on 6 but I wouldn't hot rod it around to much. As for the Speedloader it adds around 20+ hp / 30+ lbtq, it also adds more safety features. It's a good setup but there is better products out there.

WELCOME. nice ride too, I have the 6 gun w/ sploader. and if you mind your gauges #6 should'nt hurt. The sp.loader has safety features the will de-fuel the motor if it gets to hot. If you call the tech line @ banks they can help with some problems.
