Banks six gun PDA

Has any body put one of these systems on there truck and have they been able to add any other mods like water injection? I have just bought my first ford diesel, and would like any info on this kit before i buy it . It is a 2006 f250 six speed 6.0L.

95% of the people on this forum are going to recommend SCT custom tuning. Their LiveWire is an all in one package monitoring all the parameters that you need and then some.

I don't recall ever hearing of someone who had SCT tuning switching to Banks, Bullydog, Edge, Quadzilla, PPE, etc. On the other hand, we get people here almost everyday that switch from one those brands to the SCT.

Thanks for the info on that. Like i said i am just trying to figure the best combo for the truck, every dealer of course thinks theirs is the best so you have to depend on the average Joe for info.

Also, I didn't touch on the tranny issue. If you have an auto tranny, nobody can make big power and control the tranny like for safe shifts like SCT. Custom programming allows for the TCM (trans control module) to be reprogrammed as well. They can boost line pressure and speed up the shift. It's far better than a shift kit in an old Chevy turbo 350!

My truck has the six speed manual, i learned from a bunch of friends back home about the auto tranny's not holding up to the diesel,I looked at the SCT and it wasn't bad but i didn't like the wire's hanging down at the bottom of the control other then that the controls didn't look bad.

The Livewire definitely has a few "convenience" issues as far as it's size and wiring methods. Whoever told you that the 5R110 Torqshift tranny won't stand behind a diesel has no clue. If you search these forums for 6.0 problems you will find literally thousands of complaints with likely less than a dozen tranny problems.

There are a huge number of 6.0s out there pushing 400-450 rwhp (500+ at the flywheel) with no 5R110 failures. The ZF6 will serve you well, but if you throw the above power numbers at it, you will be spending several thousand dollars on a clutch to hold that power.

No problem on that a clutch will be in the works along with a detroit locker for the rear, to hook all the power up. Also i was talking in general about the tranny's not downing just one brand.
