Banks 6 gun?

I picked up an 03 6.0 with 90000 miles but had blown heads so I had the ford dealer shop put me in new heads (cause the old were cracked) as well as putting in arp studs. I also know that the tranny is built but not sure exactly what's all in it. It came with a banks 6 gun with the speed loader already installed. Is it okay to run on my truck with the mods that are done? Just don't want to spend more money than I just did!!

The problem with on the fly tuners like that Babks you have is that it doesn't tune anything. It just hijacks the signals to the PCM and bumps the timing and sends some fuel to burn.vthebtiming bump raises cylinder pressure which will pop those heads off. The trans isn't tuned and as a result these are tough on them. A tuner like SCT completely reprograms the PCM and adjusts shift points. It's safer for your engine and trans.
