where have you heard that? that six gun is a modual... it does not tune the transmission which is the reason they sell the trans command for extra... i wouldnt put that on your truck... save yourself the money and get a custom tuned chip like a TW, PHP, or DP and a set of gauges and you will be set... if you need any further info or prices just let me know

I agree with all of the above posters. I have a DP F-5 Tuner, and couldn't be happier with it. The Banks Six Gun won't do anything at all for your transmission. I have a friend that has been there and done that. He had to buy the Transcommand as well.
