I have been looking for a tuner and with all the EPA garbage going around the Banks tuner has my curiosity going. I have been doing a lot of reading up on it but there are not a lot of real world reviews.
Just wondering if anyone out there is running one and how its working for them???

everything. Period.
Egts, off line acceleration, shifting. Night and day. I ran dp in 7.3 and 6.0 and tried it in 6.7. How’s your egts? My dp 30 tow tune could hit 1650 easy, likely 1800s if I didn’t prevent. Gdp 30 hp tow twice as powerful and smoother and egts 400 cooler across the board. 1350 absolute top

I have the Banks Derringer on my 2019 only because of warranty issues down the road. I kinda wish I didn't waste my money only because it's so subtle on feeling the improvements for what it costs and honesty product looks cheap. I've used other tuner over years and must say the Banks hasn't impressed much more than stock.

I havent towed in a while but i never had egt issues. I didnt tow nearly as heavy as you do.

I might give them a try.

Dp tuners price and customer service was outstanding as well.

Thanks for the heads up on the Banks system, I might just have to go with the full weight loss program on my truck. I was just a little worried where all this EPA crack down is going.

You didn't hear them from me. LOL
Minimal improvement at best. Maybe a little better throttle response, but nothing like actual tuning, emissions or not.

For anyone that wants to try it, I've got one (somewhere). Shipping and a decent twelve pack will buy it.
