Question Banks Six Gun and Big Hoss

Has anyone run the Six Gun, Big Hoss, or both stacked together in their 7.3??? I was wondering what kind of power these chips were putting out and any info would be great.

I had the Big Hoss & Six-Gun stacked together. The Big Hoss is the heart of the operation where as the Six-Gun is only good for 62hp. The Big Hoss is good for an extra 85hp & the Six-Gun adds a percentage of 62hp from L2 to L6(w/ L6 being 100% of 62). L1 is your 'stock' setting, but you'll still have the 85 extra HP with the Big Hoss module. All the Six-Gun really is, is a 10k mod. On top of all of this, if you want to improve shifts, the Big Hoss doesn't have trans. tunes. You'll have to spend more money & buy the Banks TransCommand for that. The TC install is easy...up until you have to pull wires #1, 11, & 12 & repin them into a Banks harness that plugs into the TransCommand. I don't know what kind of power you're looking for, but the Big Hoss/Six-Gun combo is as conservative as it gets. The set up is nice, but there is certainly bigger & better out there, with built-in trans. tunes.

He has an Edge Evolution programmer. The Banks equip would be a 'downgrade'. +1 for something with custom tunes!

Banks' tuners, chips, & modules are all 'cookie cutter' burns. Meaning everything is ALL the same. With custom tunes, your chips are custom tailored to your rig's mods & will give you much better gains. Banks non-tuning equipment is the only thing I like about them. I've got an upgraded wastegate act., compressor wheel, & exhaust & they work excellent! The DP tuner is a great choice for upgrading. I've heard many people give good remarks about it.

I already have the Banks 6-gun on my truck and I bought an Edge Evolution. I am wondering can I run the evolution and use the banks 6 gun as well? Is there anything wrong with this if it will work?
