Fleece Performance turbo brake or Banks Power Speed brake?

Guys I am looking at both. I have an LBZ... Is there anyone that has used a Fleece Peformance "Lbz" one? They just came out with the lbz one.. Please give me your feeling on both. Thanks in advance.

I've been in a fleece truck and it does a good job. Not sure on the banks b/c you gotta have a PDA for it to work. The Turbobrake is just plug in play.

one plus side to the fleece box is it has the lock up controller built in, not much of an issue for the low power trucks , but once you turn the beans up it sure makes it nice to get the converter to lock properly again .

Doesn't the Banks lock it to? A while back there was a debate between the two, but I can not find it anymore... Maybe Brayden & Jeff Barker will chime in here also...

I won't go head to head in a debate about it but Banks does not have the performance mode that locks the Torque Converter under hard acceleration.

I remember reading awhile back about it where there was a write up between the two of you guys, but I can not fine it.. It would be nice to understand the difference between the two..
What about a guy that uses his rig for towing & not for racing differences then?

We don't have any kind of performance mode because, after all, it's a brake. If you want to see the indidviual comparison you can see them here: Banks Speed Brake!!

I think the converter lock up would be a nice thing to have it you are running be power, but I am looking for something for towing right now. Stopping & safety are my two big concerns...

I do appreciate everyone feed back.. Thanks guys...
