Need help with banks

Ok my dad bought a 04 f350 dually with 40,000 miles on it last week to pull his boat it is super nice i love it. however it has the hole complete banks package on it i do not know what system it is. under the hood it has all the banks crap and in the cab it has the power PDA. i do know that it does not have the speed loader. it has 6 settings and i know that 1 is stock 2 is economy because it says it on the screen and i am assumeing that 6 is the highest tune. if someone could tell me what all the tunes are that would be great thanks a lot

I would try the garbage can, and go out and buy an SCT, that actually has trans tunes on it.

But seriously you will have to call Banks customer support with the model # and they will telll you. Dont know if Banks is all canned tunes preloaded tunes, or if they have "custom" tunes that can be loaded.

you shouldn't tow any higher than 3 , 1 is stock and it goes up in 20% settings with 6 being 100% power. take afblue's advise and get rid of the junk i had the six gun and i hated it.

so here it goes,
1-Stock-heavy towing
2-4-medium to light towing
5-6- This is like their street and race tune setting.

And there you have it, back when i had my banks kit i also wondered about this, till i actually talked to one of their techs at their shop. Now i just leave it on one and let the sct do the talking

If he has the PDA then it DOES have the speed loader setting. You have to go into the 6 Gun settings and there will be an option to enable the speed loader. It is disabled from Banks but you do have it.
