I wouldn't mind more power but I've been quoted numbers that get awfully close to $10,000 for a Banks kit installed. And since I have a 3060 transmission, I can only add something like 15% or so to the 300hp/950tq of my ISC, so it doesn't seem to make much sense.

Right now I can hold 50mph on a 6% grade (2000rpm) and 43mph (about 1700rpm) on an 8% grade. Arguably, not any faster than my Banks-equipped gas coach (which was also 10 feet shorter), but it will do it all day while we have a normal conversation up front, which we didn't have with the old 460 roaring away between us.

At some point I'll probably look at a better exhaust and an MP-8, but I am hoping that would run a LOT less money.

In response to ChasA, Camping World in Vacaville, CA called Banks and received a part # and price. I heard the conversation with the Tech. who said they have the product but it has not yet been published. The electronics will be loaded by Banks and shipped ready for installation. I double checked this and all seems in order. I was looking for affirmations from those who have the system installed and was it worth the money. I will report back if there are any changes that may surprise me. Thank you for your help

Thanks for that information. Do you have any more, like when will it be available, how much it costs, etc?
