BANKS, ad and PPE?

You guys see this comit on banks ad in this months diesel builder?

it says:

Nobody gives your lbz more power that banks NOBODY

* in test, Banks six guy beat edge juice by 33HP!!

* Six gun Shredded the PPE Programmer, Too, ( wich couldnt be safley tested at its highest levels due to excessive EGT'S. At lower and safe levels, PPE's power was NOWHEREnear its advertised Claims!

The rest of the crap is about edge and limp home modes like all there ad's...

Just wondering what you guys thought about this. Should be interesting to see what PPE has to say.

I think banks as scared to hurt the tranny, so they put the PPE on level 3/10. It is at its advertised claims, and sometimes more. The EGTs are a bit high, but banks is very stuck up

Well, thats because Diesel Power magazine is just a Banks infomercial...:kissazz

IMO, Banks is, for lack of a better term, "safe" power. Not for the serious performance enthusiast, as there are better options out there.

I'm curious to see if DP mag will force Nasty and MadDog to wear those silly Banks shirts during the dyno event. Not gonna happen.....

In an ad they can say whatever they want.

I know I am probably going to get smacked around here...but I purchased the banks six gun because I already had the pda to run it.

I know there are other options out there, PPE Bullydog BD Edge etc. I can tell you this though, it makes really good & clean power and my trans is protected.

You can set the PDA up to watch how much your trans is slipping. Can you do that with just a programmer? I know Banks isn't the answer for everyone, but in my case it was.

Oh and BTW, a friend of mine has an almost identical truck as mine and I mean almost identical, only difference is mine says 3500 and his says 2500 on it. He runs the Edge juice with attitude. We both just came back from MT, only he was towing 3 mountain sleds and a light trailer, I was towing a 6500 lb car trailer with another 3,500 inside of sleds gear etc. He avg'd 13.0 mpg, I avg'd 10.0 running 75 the whole time.

You guys want to see something that'll make you and read this:

Look at the "results". Kinda skewed a bit toward the PDA, don't ya think?
