what are the advantages of this programmer or should I go with the Banks six gun... I'm not really looking for a lot of power, just trying to get a little more power. 04' with lb7

I still have not found a better deal than the Hypertech Power Programmer III. You can find it for under $300 and it has 3 settings. 40hp-60-95hp(I think). It workes really good. My father in law has one and believe it or not, my truck with the edge is not that much faster.

White Duramax


why wouldn't I want to get the Duramaximizer for a first box or one that I want to run everyday?? I'm not disagreeing, I really just don't know (I'm new at this diesel thing and power setups)... please explain, thanks!

A duramaximizer is a fuel pressure box, it raises the rail pressure, which is where the injectors get fuel from. It is already at around 22,000psi stock. The Duramaximizer raises this a couple thousand. Some say this puts increased wear on the engine, who knows though? It does definitely make my truck rattle more, like a ford or dodge, even at idle. Almost all other boxes/programmers are the pulse width/timing type. The make the injectors, inject fuel longer and increase the timing. This seems to the best and safest way to increase power. Most of them do not increase engine noise. I only use my Duramaximizer for stacking uses. I hope this helps you.

I just put one on for my boss's 3500. I wasn't that impressed by it. Install was very easy though.

Does anyone know how much the Duramaximizer raises fuel pressure compared to the Banks Six-Gun?

I just picked one up off Ebay, anyways I am planning on towing with it. Is this a bad idea??? I haul a 3000# Camper and a Sea-Doo, not a big load compared to some of you guys out there but thats a heavy camper. Anyways let me know what ya'll think. thanks.-Jeff Edited by: wsucowboy

I doubt it would hurt anything to tow with, egts seem to be really good with the duramaximizer.

no issues with it.......the early on issues with this type of box were a leaking fuel rail pressure sensor.....but that was with the bully dog power plug. I bought mine to stack with........90 hp juice is by far a better deal......by far

if you want a power difference you can feel definately stay away from the duramaximizer. IMHO, the thing is worthless unless you are in need of pumping up the fuel pressure for stacking reasons. I also think it may contribute to leaky injectors.


For something you can feel get the TTS or the Egde Juice. The juice blows the hypertech out of the water, so i have no idea where they got those numbers.

I've noticed that the "actual fuel rail pressure" during WOT is about 3,000 psi less than "commanded fuel rail pressure" with the Duramaxamizer turned up to max. So my guess would be that it is lying to the PCM by 3,000 psi. I think stock is 23,000 psi....with Duramaxamizer..26,000 psi. Which I believe is where Banks said the safe limit was. Hope this helps.
