I got the Six-Gun with IQ installed tonight and am wanting to more accurately/conservatively set the max values but am hopeful for some input from all you Duramax Gods....
The truck is still stock under the hood and exhaust.
Please let me know what you think would be the MAX values for each below.
1.) Boost
2.) EGT
3.) Trans Temperature
4.) Engine Temperature
5.) RPM

Thanks All !

Banks isn't crap. I really like the banks on my dads lbz, I think its one of the best canned tuners you can buy

I am aware that efi live is the best but this truck is a dd and tow on the weekend. Plus I have 4 more years of powertrain warranty left. The other fact is I don't keep my trucks more than a year or two at most and going this route is easier for trade and resale.

If you put a tuner on it you no longer have a warranty.

Why?

The question was settings on the 6gun, not which tuner should I buy. Keep it on topic.




It's been so long since I set mine I don't remember. I'll check. Iirc I put egt at 1250 and lowered the other numbers down for more of an early warning if something was going to overheat.

Sorry. Just trying to save him some money in the long run because of the DPF that he is going to replace early thanks to more regens than stock.

The warranty topic is highly debated and varies, but my local dealerships will still honor the warranty on a truck with Banks Six Gun due to it not touching the ECM. So I roll with what is honored and acceptable.

As far as the DPF goes I personaly haven't seen any difference between stock and a truck running the six gun with banks clean tunes. Many guys around here have had it on trucks since day one and after 5 years still going strong without issues. Like I said by then I will have moved on to a different truck, however thank you for the concern.

Thanks !!!

I have compiled the following:

1.) Boost - 32
2.) EGT - 1350
3.) Trans Temperature - 270
4.) Engine Temperature - 225
5.) RPM - 3250

Still am hopeful for more opinions.

Thanks StepChild....

I have set it to the following for now and can adjust later if need be.

1.) Boost - 32
2.) EGT - 1350
3.) Trans Temperature - 235
4.) Engine Temperature - 230
5.) RPM - 3300

So basically changed the Boost, EGT and RPM from the default settings.
In regards to yours being older I have the above plus these two (7 Total)
1.) Fuel Level
2.) Vehicle Speed
