Keep Banks, or switch out for others

Hey everyone, I'm new to the form and diesel tuning. About a month ago I bought an 02 250 with the 7.3L and a decent amount of banks upgrades. The guy has the whole stinger plus kit, added the elbow coming off the turbo, and the six gun to it. So about the only thing from banks that it doesn't have is the intercooler and the big hoss module. From what I have been reading, it seems that other set-ups will produce more power. Is the difference in power enough that it would be worth me selling off the banks stuff to replace it with other stuff, or since it is already on there should i just leave it there and get the upgraded intercooler?

Sorry if that was a bit of a long winded question, thanks in advance for any advice.

just my two cents but if it were me I would ebay all of the banks stuff. With the money you could get from that stuff you could probably get many cool performance mods and have some cash left over for cosmetic mods as well. I would look on e-bay to see how much used stuff like that is going for and then write it all down. Then make a list of all the cool stuff you would replace it with to see if you will be able to do it with cash left over. In my opinion you'll have more power for less money if you get the banks off there and go with something else.

From what I have read on many posts here is that you can get more for your money with other go fast goodies.

The banks elbow is a nice mod The ehaust is just as good as anything out there . There are more powerful tuners than the six gun . There is a need for a innercooler but I would not get banks . Its not that much bigger than stock . It was not worth the money I spent on it

Yeah actually get rid of the 6 gun and get a good custom chip or tuner and leave the rest on the truck.
