Bully Dog or Banks?

I have an 04 Cummins and i cant decide between the Bully Dog triple power pup or the Banks ottomind 6 PDA module. I know the Banks gives u around 150HP and 260ftlbs and allows u to monitor, change, and control everything. The Bully Dog unit gives u up to 230HP and 450ftlbs but im not sure what all u can monitor and change. I want kick *** smack down HP and torque but i also dont want to break anything or upgrade the whole drive train alothough i do plan on an upgraded torque converter. Anyone have any suggestions?

Go with Bully Dog. You can get there monitor. I monitors gvery thing just like banks. The big plus is you can upgrade it over the internet. Plus you will never have to buy another one again if you buy a newer truck.:Thumbup: Just up date it and that is free. Dont forget there crazy lary program. BIG POWER.

For any thing over 100 horse your going to Have to up grade your TQ converter and may want to think about doing the same to the trans. Bully dog has a seting for more power an milege. All of these power adders can do damage to your trans if your on the top settings and have a heavy right foot. BD will defuel if it detects trans slip just like banks or if egt gets too high. The best thing it they dont mess with the rail pressure like banks. Increseing rail pressure will cause damage over time. You want timeing and duration.
