banks or quadzilla

i'm new to the idea of tuners and deletes so any advise from you guys would be very helpful. i have a 2011 lml and am very ready to increase my mpg and horsepower. i had originally planned to have a h and s tune on my truck but with the uncertain future of h and s it has me concerned that there may not be updates and or tech support in the future. i am curious about the quadzilla stealth 2, it is my understanding that it will delete as well, however is don't see alot of people running them why is this is ther a problem with them, i also see the banks auto mind is out as well. i know it does not delete and that is ok with me. i am really just looking for 60 -80 hp and better mpg with a safe tune for my engine, a beefy tone of a straight exhaust would be nice but not needed. this being said please any input would be greatly appreciated thank u. ps i want more power because the truck is lifted with skyjacker 7 inch kit with 37 inch nitto grapplers, if this makes a diff

Never mind I'm wrong haha they don't remove emission stuff so it's a waste of time IMO

Banks does make a Programmer for the LML and in my past experiences with Banks products they are on the conservative side. If I was in the market for a programmer and Banks wasn't such a GIANT pain in the butt to deal with due to their super high pressure sales tactics, I would buy a Banks. I don't know when Banks will make the LML Automind available to their dealers but I will never buy from them direct, ever again!!!!

I'm running the Quadzilla and yes it will do a full delete. The stock tune worked well prior to the delete, but I only ran for a few days like that. The Offroad tune has some problems. The 60HP tune won't load and the speed limiter removal isn't working. So, you only have the choice of stock power or 80HP. At least the tire size calibration works. I only gained about 1.3 MPG running the 80HP tune and a 4" downpipe back exhaust.

I also ran the Hypertech tuner for a while and was very disappointed as the fuel economy actually went down and the truck would regen every 120 miles. I think this will be the case with any tuner adding power with the DPF still in place.

I would go with H&S, they will be around for a long time I believe. We will most likely just see a change in their tuning offerings.

We have plenty or XRT Pro's in stock. H&S will stand behind all current products in the future.
