Just get a set of gauges for the A-pillar and you dont have to run the 6 gun.

Get the gauges and take the money you were going to spend o the six gun and go with a custom tuned sct. Your truck will thank you for it in the long run.

I would actually use the DashDAQ as gauges and a code reader as you can buy a license for it that will give you code reading for 9 modules(most tuners only do 1) and 460 sensors and datalogging capabilities over those sensors, I don't know how many sensors the banks gives you, plus you can add EGT, fuel psi to it that it can't get thru the OBD-II plug.

It's like Autoenginuity or the other automative specialty software, except you can't do testing of individual components like you can on the PC software.

I know i bought the truck with the Banks 6 gun. I wish it wasn't on there so i could buy the sct. What are some gains from the sct tune? Are there any programmers that you can stack onto the Banks 6 gun?
Im trying to sell the Banks..

ebay the banks. got 900 for mine. the SCT tunes your trans too so the transmission will hold through the power from the SCT. You will be amazed at the difference with an SCT.
