You have to be kidding me. Banks is 98% bullshit marketing and 2% useful technology. There are MANY better alternatives to their overpriced, overhyped, under engineered crap. The tornado and fuel line magnets are a better option than Banks.

I have a few friends that have 6.7L cummins crew cab 4x4's and the mileage sucks on them too. If you want to get some mileage you have to get that DPF off from your truck....check out spartentechdiesel. Matt has a tune thats making 500+RWHP from the 6.4L with just tuning and removing the DPF/DOC. Not to mention most guys removing the DPF's are getting in the 17+mpg range. Same goes for the 6.7L its a turd for fuel mileage as well. But I have heard several people getting much better mileage once they remove the dpf and block EGR coolers.
