In today's computer age, everything we touch during our daily lives is related to or controlled by a computer. In your gas or diesel-powered truck and SUV, there are multiple computers keeping tabs on engine, tranny, and braking performance. It only makes sense in the search to squeeze out as much extra performance as possible to think about upgrading your truck's computer. Modern-day tuning can be done on-the-fly, and with Banks' newest iQ technology, changing your truck's performance potential is as simple as touching your digital display on the dashboard.

Banks' iQ features genuine PC functionality and downloadable software you can use inside and outside your vehicle. This powerful microcomputer lets you know the inner workings of your vehicle's ECU, allowing you to see what's beyond your dashboard gauges. You select what you want to see and how you want to see it and then the iQ allows you to set alarms, adjust gauge colors, read and clear codes, log data and find out how quick your vehicle goes from 0 to 60 mph. You'll find yourself using the host of useful built-in tools in your daily life, as you can listen to your favorite tunes, watch videos, play games, and review your Microsoft Office documents. Its PC power fits in the palm of your hand, and with a rechargeable battery, you can take it with you wherever you go.

To get full use of the Banks iQ, we also installed the Bands Six Gun tuner. The Banks Six Gun tuner added 140 hp and 230 lb-ft of torque to our '06 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with the 6.6L Duramax turbo-diesel. The power increase can be enhanced on-the-fly without adding the typical diesel black smoke. Banks' Six Gun offers six distinct levels for ultimate versatility when you're towing, and higher levels that are suited for hauling the mail. The system tunes pulse-width, timing, and fuel pressure, while protecting torque converter clutch lockup. Stay tuned for future Banks upgrades like their speed brake, intake and exhaust systems.
