here it goes, Ok ive been reading up on the banks big hoss bundle, it seems the max out put for the duramax maxes out to the same hp and tq weather it is a o1-05 why is this? im guessing that gm did tuning refinements and the moter is only capable of that power out put, the second is i was told not to run more than 50 extra hp through the alli or it will not last as long. so does that mean that my little lb7 300 hp can only be pumped up 50 hp so i dont hurt the trans or can i go 50 above the lbz i think is 325 so can i safely deliver 75 more hp to my lb7 and my trans will be ok or were the newer 5 speeds beefed up? I know! thats why i said confused or is the banks guy blowing hot air?

90 hp is about the limit.Depends how you use it.4-5 up and downshifts hurt.1-4 hold up pretty well.

Unloaded 90 added RWHP on your truck is about all you want to run long term and never have a worry. some run a bit more power but its going to kill it eventually. If you beat on the truck towing with 90 HP you will probably do damage. Lower the tune down when towing.

The big hoss bundle is a waste IMO. Banks builds an ok exhaust and programer for some guys but you dont need all that other crap like inercooler and intake and stuff all bundled together. I'd just get a tuner if I were you. The banks is an option or there are others. :)

I've done pretty good with the banks set-up. I Beat the crap out of my truck, even keep a set of used junk tires for the rear for the smoke shows.:D :D :D :D :D :D :D Never limped anything but I do turn down the power for 5th gear. FYI, I've pulled a 0-60 time of 7.12 secs, don't know the 1/4 mile can't find straight smooth roads around here.
Hope this helps:)

I'm always telling everybody that duct tape can be used for ANYTHING!:D I was just curious if it would hold or not.:p:
