Increase your performance

You’ll have complete control of all added power/safety functions when you connect the Banks iQ 2.0 to any Banks diesel tuner, AutoMind Flash Programming Module, SpeedBrake, or any other compatible device.

Choose power levels and monitor vehicle functions accordingly, so you’ll always know exactly what your tuner and engine are doing. Squeezing every last bit of energy out of a gallon of fuel for improved mileage is just as much of a science as making big horsepower gains. By tuning your vehicle’s fuel injection, ignition and transmission shift characteristics, Banks can deliver up to a 20-percent improvement in fuel economy for diesel pickups, and 10-percent for gasoline-powered cars and trucks. We also optimize the cylinder-deactivation system on GM and Chrysler products for more fuel-sipping 4-cylinder operation from your V-8. That’s money you can put in the bank instead of the tank!

Stay Safe

Mount it to the back of your vehicle to help when backing into your garage, out of a parking space, or anywhere you need to see just what’s behind you. And for those of us who like to tow, mount the camera on the back of your trailer, or even your motorhome. The possibilities are endless…
