Banks Tuner Question

My father is dead set on getting a banks 6 gun with a switch (the nothing fancy version). I tried to get him to go with the xrt pro, but he is old and wants the name. Anyways I have a couple questions if someone knows about them. Are they easy to install? Are they safe to run without gauges? Since it plugs in do they throw lights on the dash? Thanks

I had a banks on my truck. It is easy to install and does not throw an codes or lights. I actually have it for sale, because I went with an H&S Mini Maxx. I have the Six Gunn with the switch and the PDA, if you have any interest. He will not see any MPG improvement with the Six Gunn. It did provide a power increase, nothing like the H&S thou.
