I was thinking of adding the Banks speed break to my 08 LMM for help with towing and seen that you can combine the 6 gun with it was well very easy. I have done lots of reading on just about every tuner for the LMM but have yet to find a direct compairision between Banks and Edge...mind you I could have missed it. The banks with the speed break would be a good choice of power addition adn breaking ability with a monitoring system.

I am not 100% sure but think the Edge only offers the power and monitoring option with their CTS. Has anoyone else looked into these two programers/ setups and if so what are your oppinions?

Also just wondering if the IQ as the ability to run the EGT alone without the 6 gun installed? I think it has to be hooked up the 6 gun inorder for it to work. It would be a nice option when takign it into the dealer you could just pull the tuner and leave the break and egt and say you are using the IQ as a monitor only. Might save on dealer hassle.

Thanks

All Edge tuners have the built in gauges.

I suggest the Edge over the Banks, unless you plan on adding the Speedbrake.

However the Edge has a built in turbo brake on level 2 which should provide plenty of additional stopping assistance.

If you have any questions let me know.

Just keep in mind that if you add a programmer and add power, there is NO guarantee that your warranty will stay in tact. Your best bet is to call the dealer and ask if a speedbrake will void warranty, etc. Also....from what I've heard the Banks is the best tuner for the new trucks with DPF.

Does the edge work the same as the banks in respect to not sending codes to the ECM but only tracable with the TCM?

I would like the speed break addition from what I read it is the cats ass, I do have a call into the service manager at my dealership we have kinda been down this road before with the PPE vs the Quad Zilla...I ended up going with neither.
