Banks Big Hoss Bundle

I have an 08 CCLB Dually. When new, I was getting about 14 MPG. Now I get about 11 MPG mixed back roads/highway, 50-50% mix. I'm considering putting in the Banks Big Hoss Bundle. I spoke to Banks yesterday and the sales guy said I can expect almost 5 MPG difference. So, I'd like some independent confirmation. I am very happy with the power/accerleration of the truck and I realize it is a big rig but I used to get 16 MPG with my 2000
F-350 so I'm looking for more. Anyone have experience with the Banks products on the 6.4?

Do some searching on here...To get mileage you need to get rid of the emissions stuff. Go with KEM, Spartan, H&S, or SCT. Stay away from the Banks.

The Banks sales people will tell you ANYTHING to make a sale. Without deleting your DPF and stopping the regeneration cycles then you will probably see a 0 mpg gain and be about 5K in the hole. There are way better and cheaper products that Banks.

and if you want more
bigger intercooler afe 1400$
airdog fuel system 600$
and this will help with egt and fuel
and thats about 5k that will make one bad a$$ 6.4 that will last a long time and get good mpg's and put down a good 14 1/4mil in that dually and thare a lot of good shop's that can help you and know more about that 6.4l then banks well everknow

Wrong, do some research before posting. The Banks unit is the most DPF friendly tune on the market and generates less soot then in stock form.

You see a bit more then 0 MPG gain. I get 13-14 driving in So. Calif. City/Hwy use. I avg around 18-19 if it's just Hwy station to station and 10-11 when it's just City driving. That's with the DPF in place and in a few weeks, those numbers will be even higher.
