Are you serious???? The Banks 6 gun shift on the fly will destroy your transmission and probably pop your head gaskets. If you get an SCT they can custom write the tunes for the engine trans to keep from trashing the trans and keep the cylinder pressures low enough to not pop the head gaskets if your still running stock head bolts. It also allows for disabling the egr system.There is nothing wrong with the Banks set up, but if you must try to tweak things then the SCT is for you.

The Banks system in its design intercepts, alters, and transmits the signals controlling power levels in the truck. It does have its own defueling on EGT's, however it does not have any indication of cylinder pressures, and does not defuel based on those.Not going to get into a pissing match with you or anyone else on the Banks Bashing Train, but show me the proof that SCT will not pop your head gaskets. Show me the proof that the banks does not keep the cylinder pressures within check for stock gaskets/bolts.
When you show me the PROOF and not hear say, then I will believe you.
The 5R110 transmission relearn capabilities were designed by Ford, to allow the transmission to adapt to new flashes, driving habits, and individual truck performance. It was never intended to adjust the full spectrum of Banks Programming of +115RWHP, and regardless of what Banks or any other Shift-On-The-Fly manufacturer states, it will adversely impact the longevity of the transmission to do so. If a tuner is marketed as shift-on-the-fly, why market the product as such and then tell owners they have a detailed transmission procedure to adhere to after every shift in power?As for the transmission, the Banks system in its installation instructions has a process for the transmission to learn for its next power level. don't follow those instructions and yes you will do damage. Just a question to you, why do they say it takes a few miles after you download a new SCT tune for the drive train to acclimate to the new power setting? Call SCT and talk to their technical guys there, that is what they told me to do when I increase to a higher power setting tune.
As far as the law is concerned, any reprogramming of an emission controlled vehicle is a violation of the Federal Clean Air Act (which is why the emission control gear comes with these trucks in the first place). Show me anything from Banks stating that the 6 gun tuner has a CARB number applied for, or given.Now lets include deleting the EGR. You do realize you are breaking the law by deleting the EGR. I would say that Banks is selling a 50 state legal devise where they are not breaking any laws and that their devise works in conjunction with a connected EGR.
I believe I have effectively countered each of these statements. I'm not looking for your retraction, but I do feel the SCT is a superior device in every way. That's why I recommend it to every 6.0L owner looking to tune their trucks.Once you show me the PROOFI will retract my statements above.
