Stacking Banks on Hypertech

I have a Banks 6 Gun w/ Power PDA but can not change the speed limiter. I was thinking about buying a hypertech programmer and installing the highest level it offers and raising the speed limiter and the stacking the 6 Gun on it but only running it on level 3 or 4. Would this be okay to do, or would it hurt anything? I know there is a lot of stuff out there that will give me more power, but I have always had good luck with Banks and really like using the PDA for my gauges instead of having them on the pillar, + I like when people mess with me because they think it is stock until I roll the black smoke and leave them sitting. Appreciate any info. Thanks.

Hmmm. Not sure that this is a wise idea, since you are attempting to alter the same or similar engine parameters with two different programmers. If you are going to buy something, go with an SCT and this won't be a problem. The SCT will truly tune your engine and not simply mask your existing stock programming and sensor readings. Your dealer will create the tunes based upon your specifications, so you won't get something that might make you uncomfortable about breaking stuff on your truck. Also, I'm pretty sure that you can continue to use your 6gun exclusively as a digital gauge pod with the SCT. Good luck!

I'll look into an SCT. If nothing else, I will buy the bd power speed eliminator or the superchips tirepaq programmer just for the speed limiter. Appreciate the info. Definetely don't want to hurt the truck. Just got it back a week ago from getting the head gaskets replaced.

From what I have heard Banks does not play well with any other tuners. For the speed eliminator you would be better off running our unit.
