Re: Banks working on a CRD

I spoke to Banks today, they said they've had great results with just a tuner...25hp. They weren't looking to do anything crazy, and they should have an exhaust too. They said the tuner is a stand alone module, and it will have a switch to turn off/on, and does not flash the computer, and is undetectable. They said it should be out in a month ish, and it seems like it will be pretty decently priced, I think he said 3-400. He said they saw improvement in fuel economy too, but wasn't specific. I would definitely be on board for a Banks developed "tuner" for some modest gains in HP and economy to offset the bigger tires i put on.

Re: Banks working on a CRD

That's a really modest gain unless the other guys are lying. My seat-of-the-pants and 0-60 times tell me the Bluespark is delivering much more. I would thank 20-25℅ gains would be possible.

The steinbauer says 20% but it's $1900 and not a pressure box with a great warranty...it puts the jeep at 288hp and about 488tq the ram 1500 is like 292hp and like 500tq. Banks said they could get more, but they were looking for something easy on the DPF and something that doesn't flash to worry about warranty. With an intake and light tune, if it reduces some of the lag increase by the bigger tires and gets my mileage back to before the bigger tires...I can sell the wife on it!!! He said you definitely feel the extra power, and you can turn it off/on when you want.
I have a dyno/tuning shop 10 minutes from my house I can check each add on as it's installed, so baseline, only intake, only exhaust, intake and exhaust, intake,exhaust and tuner. They are very stoked to put it in their shop. They said they'll look at playing with the banks tuner too if it's worth tampering with the tune while keeping the emissions junk in mind. They are going to see if there might be a better turbo with factory type characteristics. For my charger they are going to use a Diablo then tweak the canned tunes. They said on the charger they can get 8-10% at the wheels. Already did the charger, 318hp/345tq with a true cold air intake...it's down behind the bumper using a factory air scoop that's already there. Sorry I'm rambling, pretty amped getting the rides on a dyno, and just put corsa extreme on the charger. Back to the dyno!
