Yeah some guys get real offended for some reason if you mention Banks. Oh well. They don't get that some of us aren't going to race our trucks, or that we don't like to throw black smoke all over the place.
I'm in California and couldn't get away with deletes even if I wanted too.
Here is a real world reply on another thread:
Re: Gale Banks 151+hp on 6.7 and thoughts on Rolling coal with an interesting article
I have tuners from Eric at Innovative diesel, tried H&S and the "green card" from KEM, Spartan, and also the tuner from Banks. Our of all of them for "HWY" tunes Banks is the better choice in my opinion. No increased regen cycle, more power than the others. I ran on the 150hp setting for 5,000-6,000 miles no issues at all, only switched it to the tow setting to see what is is like.
Now if your talking race tunes then I would say the Spartan 200.
Any way I think for A good DPF friendly tuner the one from Banks is a good choice, I know I have been liking it especially for "HWY" tunes. But at 150+ HP that is just as much as H&S was getting with their hot "race" tune.

Here is a thread I started on this forum, as you can see some folks are not Banks fans. But to each his own I guess.

What I like about the reply quoted above is no increase in regens.
