I think your approach (your video), will be a much more realistic test of what the Banks did/does. Actual dyno testing seems to be a little hard to fit with real life results on the road.
Good luck with whatever you do. I'll be anxious to see what your real-life test shows.
that's what I think also...banks doesn't mess with the timing... so you still run reg gas..

seems like the newest fords have a little more go power... the head pipes are different ...

banks doesn't have a kit for the 2015's yet,,,

Our tunes offer increased power/better driveability at an affordable price. Our tunes for the 2v offer +25-30 hp, +30 lb ft and the 3v engines gain +30 hp and +70 lb ft torque. The major benefit of our tuning system is the ability to add parts as you go as well as the time we spend in the seat testing and tweaking the V10s. If you tune your rig and feel it has enough power, you're all set. If you'd like to add CAI, headers, exhaust, etc. we have all of those parts too.
