I should get installed tomorrow. I will let folks know for sure. Living in California I am very limited to what I can do or having to put everything to stock every two years, which on a full weight loss I donít think I want to do that.

I got the Derringer installed today, pretty straight forward. I drove the truck for about 20 minutes. What I noticed in the short drive. The transmission shifts feel better, not hard but they felt a little firmer. The instructions do say the trans will have to relearn a bit. There definitely is more power when you get on it. If just cruising everything is the same or feels that way. When the truck is cold it will not add power until it reaches about 120. So far I like it and will drive more and let you guys know.

Good to know it doesn't add power if the truck is cold, kind of makes it idiot proof for well....the idiots out there that start it up, and hammer down first thing.

Sounds like it could be a winner. I'll wait until I'm towing though to decide if I want to get one myself. Which version did you get, switch or iDash?

I got the I Dash. I figured why not get 6 settings. So far I like it however it is not a replacement for full weight loss. What I do like is how the trans shifts now, there is a difference. Power is good if you get on it.

I did buy a stealth and that was a waste of money, so if anybody is interested in a stealth I have one cheap.

I had put a tuner on my 2014. It performed well, but wasn't doing the exhaust cleaning cycle right and it plugged up. A very costly lesson. I loved the extra power, and want another one, but skitish about putting one on my 2019.

Banks also set the land speed record with a 6.7L power stroke on E-20 fuel (20% bio diesel), they are pretty much the authority on 6.7L performance modifications, sadly they don't have jack available or in development for the 2016 power strokes.
