Banks & SCT tuned 6.0l

So I have the Banks PowerPDA for gauges and I am running the Spartan Ultra free tune. I also am running ARP's with new stock HG's. What would happen if I turn the PDA up to the highest level? Am I gonna blow the heads into tomorrow or is it ok with the ARP's? The reason I ask is I used to get 18+ mpg when I had the PDA at SL but now tuned by SCT I am getting about 14. Both hand calculated. So give me your honest opinion will it mess up my engine if I turn up the wick?

If you want to run the Banks Tuning I would get a Transmission only Tune for your SCT. This way you can have the Banks Tuning that you like for mileage and SCT Tuning for your transmission. Just a thought. Chris

I'm a little more country than that...

Good idea. I hadn't thought of that.

Yeah, Banks + Ultra Comp = BOOM

Get custom SCT tunes and leave the Banks for monitoring, second choice would be a tranny only tune on the SCT and use the Banks for power.
