More Power

I have a 1997 7.3 350 dually runs great, I`m pulling 31` 5th wheel 17.000 lbs--need more power on 6% grades. If I put in a Banks Power Pack, Can my tranny handle it ? Thanks Bill

Bill- What is that powerpack going to run you, if you don't mind me asking? The main reason I ask is because most people end up selling their banks stuff after they realize it isn't all it's cracked up to be. The vendors on this site, and alot of other places offer tons of upgrades that will out perform the banks kit. Usually you will come in under budget for what you would have paid for the banks in the first place. I'm not tryin to be a jerk or anything just letting you know what other people have found out the expensive way.
totaldieselperformance.com, beansdieselperformance.com, two good places to start, btw call them and they will talk with you about what is best for what you want to do with your truck. Good luck

And once again, I am in agreement with Stroked, Banks is not my first choice in much of anything, great for the decals hahaha. Talk to the vendors and they will set you up, and do it fairly, make sure you mention your on the forum here. Good luck, and welcome to Powerstroke.
