Question Banks Products

I am New to Diesels and trying to learn all i can.I picked up a Diesel magazine this weekend and their was a 3+ page spread about how banks products are better than anything out there and blah blah blah, but what i read on here is that mr banks is the devil himself when it come to our trucks and i would just like to know why alot of you feel this way. Thanks

Re: Banks Products

Alot of his stuff is overpriced, or not of the best quality. his tuning has been called undrivable. these are direct complaints i've heard.

i have also heard that his intercoolers/kits are great.

I believe the only thing not of quality is the tuning and type of tuner.

A friend of mine had a complaint of an exhaust housing not fitting, and an intake that was too big for the allotted space and required serious trimming.

Re: Banks Products

I have a banks big hoss chip on my truck, I will tell you the only reason it is on there is b/c its what was on it when I got it, a 6 pos is on the way. I will tell you that yes this chip is overpriced, doesnt work worth a chit and I had not being able to switch it do different power levels like a ts chip, tw, or one from swamps. Just my .02, but it isnt worth a flip

well, this was back in 2004 that he was complaining of it, so they may have reformed their stuff.
