97 powerstroke Upgrades

Been looking into a banks bundle but are they really worth it? Also just thinking about throwing a Ts 6 pos, stage 2 intake, and better exhaust. Any feedback?

My first mod was a Banks power pack. Great fuel economy (was getting 23 MPGs freeway back then), gets you a complete IC system, and gauges. Downside is that they reuse the stock airbox (crap) and are WAY overpriced. All in all I miss driving with the Banks stuff on the truck but my current system would beat the old system.

I vote build your own setup (injectors, tunes, exhaust, intake) and you be pretty happy. Sorry not helpful.

I cheated. Banks power was my business neighbor till the economy crash. Them he sold of all the buildings and brought everything back to his corner of Azusa/Irwindale. Now I only see Gale at our local lunch haunt once and a while. I had his top kit. Everything they make for the OBS plus. What's not included in the regular kit is the Trans temp gauge and A-Piller gauge mount so I added that in. Current setup is in my sig but I've run out of usable characters So there is a couple more mods then what's posted.

Those are bad words on here. Careful what you admit and whom you admit too.
