H&S or Banks??

Just trying to decide what programmer to get. It's going into an 08' F350 dually that I use mainly for hauling the horse trailer and a 25' gooseneck equipment trailer. It's out of warranty this coming June and I was planning on pulling the DPF/DOC at that point.

I'm kind of curious about the Banks Speedbreak, but I haven't seen any reviews other than the stock PR crap...hard to believe everything! H&S seems to be proven.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

If you plan on pulling the DPF, H&S is the clear choice. I highly recommend the Mini Maxx.

Banks does not support dpf/doc deletes at all if I'm not mistaken.
Plus their stuff is WAY overpriced for what you get... H&S all the way!

If your worried about EPA regulations, Banks is the only one approved of those two. If you could care less about the EPA and plan on taking the DPF off, then go with H&S.

So Shaun, I see you have a banks set-up on there with the speed break...how does it work? I'm only interested because my big trailer can get a little heavy and it looks like an easier (and cheaper) install than a full on exhaust break. Also, while I don't live where I have to go through DEQ every year, I do occasionally have to stop at DOT scales and I'm not sure if they look "under the hood" if ya know what I mean! I really want to get rid of all that power robbing crap bolted on my motor, but don't want to get in a pickle in the process. Thanks everyone.

Works great. Speed break is absolutely awesome. Here's a posts with several write-ups I did when I was testing it for Banks.
To purchase a speed brake or not????

Not sure if they look under the hood either, I've heard talk that they may but that's probably just rumor. But if your running the Banks setup, you wouldn't have to worry about it as it's 100% EPA/CARB compliant.

Thanks! I've been looking at the banks packages again, and maybe I'll go that way. Only because I'm a "worry-wort" and they package everything into a nice neat bundle. I've still got until June to decide since that is when my warranty runs out.
