Has anyone heard about this? Anyone tried or have it? It is on the Duramaxstore.com website, it says its a 128hp/345ft/lb torque for $625 and you can get the speed loader, which upgrades to 155hp for $99. Hmmm, Mac, better call up Banks and get one!!!

AHEM,


A hot OJ puts down in the neighborhood of 140 hp and over 300 Tq. Priced in the same ballpark on special or refurbed.


Quadzilla 135 or 165 Tuner will get you there as well.


Banks has a good reputation, you may want to wait a week or so, NICK will have some info to share I hope,


It sounds like a VA box or Duramaximizer with more features.........no pics to look at though.

I have only heard of the Otto Mind from Banks. The STINGER kit includes the 4" exhaust, the Otto Mind, Big head waste gate, and the guage pkg. All good for (advertised) 73 hp & 142 ftlbs torq.,which, btw I have on my truck.

What does the "Big head waste gate" do? Is it adjustable? Does it decrease EGT's significantly?

I will be down in LA next week and will be going by Banks to test run their new six-shooter. i will post some information and hope to run it on a dyno along with some other common boxes for comparison.

Can I suggest the Quad 165hp and 135hp? I have yet to see any info on the 165hp tune, and although many people use the 135hp tune, I have not been able to get ahold of a dyno chart with RPM instead of MPH

Go to bankspower.com for more info on the new six shooter. Looks like a pretty promising piece from such a conservative company.

Is this device a programmer (like the Predator) or does it fit on the CAN bus and modify fueling commands sent to the FICM (like the Juice)?

Michigana_Joe,


The Big Head Waste gate is adjustable, and basically it is the "popoff" valve for the turbo, i.e. You want your turbo to produce 26 psi. Once the turbo is making that much boost, the waste gate will open, and any pressure over 26 psi is bled off. Also this WG comes with a fitting for connecting a turbo boost guage. Does it lower EGTs significantly? I would think that if it is adjusted to high it would raise EGTs.

I would be very interested in the Banks programmer. Lets see some results first. Anyone do a before and ater with the bighead actuator? Dyno and 1/4mile?

i wouldn't expect the actuator to do anything for numbers w/o some help from a power box/module.


if you do get one their initial recommendation for adjustment was a little high. i'd go 1 less turn in to start..
