Stacking on Banks ?

I have a 2004 F-250 it has a K&N intake, Banks 4in exhaust, Fass fuel sys. that replaces the pump on the frame. I also have a Banks six gun with speed loader installed, it is the older model that has the selector switch, not the PDA. Everyone says to get SCT because My trans will thank me and that makes sense. So I am wondering if it is possible to stack something with my banks that would tune my trans, possibly give me more of an extream tune, and remove the speed govener. Everynoe that I have talked to says Banks makes a good product but it is very safe witch is good I guess but I would like to tune the trans and get some more power if its possible.

What do you guys think ?

You cant stack, stacking is a very bad idea on powerstrokes it just serves no purpose. Just scrap the banks and get a custom tuned SCT

Stacking doesen't work one will cancel out the other. Sell the banks and get a custom tuned sct. your tranny will thank you and you will love the power. just my .02

The Banks Six-gun will just override any tuning that the SCT gives you unless you leave it on level 1.

+ 1 more... stacking does not work.. just dump that Banks crap and get yourself a custom tuned SCT... it will easily out perform any stacking you do

I'm new to the site and new to diesels since I just picked up my first diesel truck the other week. I have an 2007 F250 and I am wanting to know if I was going to add some performance products what would be the best and safest route to go? I am not wanting to lose mileage or have crazy amounts of power. Just wanting to be sucked back in my seat a little more.
