I wouldn't put a banks tuner on anything I own. The have excellent marketing and a crap product. Go with spartan or h&s.

I don't know much about their programmers...but my Dad put the Super git kit on his 7.3 and it really brought it to life. I've always felt Banks engineering did a good job based on that....but I could be wrong.

banks 6.7 automind

I just put one on today. It was easy to use and I haven't played too much with it yet,but on Supersport it brought it to life quite a bit. The economy mode did nothing for the mileage at all though. Those are the only 2 settings I have tried yet. Mileage was he same on either setting,I was looking to get a boost and a little better mpg. I have the Banks airbox and exhaust too and like it. I had an 05 with 6.0 and had the whole Banks powerbundle on it,air box,aftercooler,exhaust and programmer,that thing was great. It made a bigger improvement on the 6.0 compared to what it does on the 6.7 IMO

You said you have the banks exhaust, are you deleted or is it just the DPF back? I dont think you will see any noticeable mileage gain without tossing the DPF. Ive been deleted for about 2k miles not and its at about 16 and is slowly rising. Keep in mind though I am running 35's and a 4.5" lift.

IMHO the only people that really run Banks are faily uneducated and/or Cummins owners, oh yeah and that show Truck U, no offense. But if you read around the site you wont find much of Banks anywhere, again not slamming what you own I just feel that if you would of put some research time in you would of went with something better and would be having better results.

On my 6.0L I had the Banks 6 Gun, intercooler, air intake, high ram intake, Mrrp 4" turbo back exhaust. I had Eric at XD write me 3 tunes for the SCT programmer one being transmission control only. I would run the 6 gun on level 6 about 90% of the time. With 10" of lift, 38" tires & 4.56 gears I could still get 19 mpg at 70 mph on the highway. The 6 gun could turn those 38's over through third gear. Completely happy with Banks and customer service if there was an issue.

Now Eric's extrem race tune had about 75 more hp and you knew it once the tranny adjusted to it. Fuel economy would drop but that probably was due to my right foot. I would not keep it in that tune for more than a month as the tranny would start hitting hard when I was in traffic.

I tested a SCT, Bully dog, TS performance, and Diablo in 2004 on my 6.0 and Banks was the best set up by far. At that time HS and Spartan where not really out I guess as I never had heard of them.
