The Banks Power SpeedBrake

Banks has a completely new approach to downhill braking. No exhaust brake here. It’s the Banks SpeedBrake, fully electronic braking controls. Very modern approach to safely haul big loads down long or steep grades.

2008-2010 6.4L Ford Powerstroke – Use with existing iQ, Six-Gun or Economind Tuner

Add Performance Exhaust Braking to your Existing Banks iQ Dashboard

The Banks Power SpeedBrake All-Electronic Braking System is the Ultimate upgrade to an existing Banks Power iQ Dashboard PC System with either a Six-Gun or EconoMind Tuner Module. The SpeedBrake is an all-electronic mastermind of braking technology. Plug-in connection makes for a clean, simple installation without cutting or tapping into vital wire harnesses.  SpeedBrake uses the trucks own components to give you the safety you need when towing, so there’s no added mechanical parts to second guess.

With the SpeedBrake there’s no competition and no compromise. This smart device becomes an active component of your vehicle, constantly monitoring and adjusting systems to achieve the speed setting you command. With its patented technology the SpeedBrake controls your transmission’s shifting, locks and unlocks the torque converter and infinitely varies the VG turbo’s vanes to hold your set speed and maximize stopping performance to ensure that you have the safety and confidence for the long haul. Watch it all happen as the Banks iQ keeps you informed by displaying important parameters and on-screen alerts you set.

SpeedBrake has operating modes and settings to suit your style and driving conditions. ON mode lets you select three levels of braking aggressiveness: HIGH, MED, LOW. Use AUTO MODE to select and automatically maintain a specified downhill speed (25 – 75 mph). In addition, the user can enable or disable FOOT BRAKE ACTIVATION, depending on individual preferences and vehicle load. Banks iQ provides 2-way communication, has a system status indicator with on-screen alerts, and OBDII scan tool capability. In addition, it displays numerous vehicle parameters, from current braking effort and operating gear to braking mode and target speed.

Banks Power SpeedBrake – Features and Benefits

  • Auto Mode: Set Speed at 25-75mph
  • Plug and Play Harness to the CPU
  • No Cutting Wire Harnesses or Exhaust Pipes
  • Cut Downhill Speed without Touching the Brake Pedal
  • iQ Dashboard PC is a OBDII Port Scanner
  • Constant Monitoring on the iQ Dashboard PC

Banks Power SpeedBrake Put to the Test

“AUTO” mode test: The driver set the target speed to 50 mph, began descending in 5th gear and lifted his foot off the accelerator. That’s all he had to do. SpeedBrake varied the turbine vanes and downshifted the transmission to 3rd gear. The vehicle slowed down to 50 mph and SpeedBrake kept it there. No problem. SpeedBrake slowed the vehicle to the 50 mph target speed and automatically kept it there!

“MANUAL” mode test: (“High” strength setting) The transmission automatically downshifted to 3rd and the vehicle immediately slowed. Since the ON mode has no target speed, the Silverado slowed to a crawl, shifting all the way down to 1st gear without any effort from the driver and never operating outside the normal rpm range. In less than a mile, the vehicle slowed to 15 mph without using the foot brake! This is an astonishing speed reduction of 40 mph from the start.

OC DIESEL Part Number BA 25975 (Banks Power Techni-Cooler Intercooler System) applies to the Ford Powerstroke Diesel equipped with a 6.0L engine from vehicle manufactured date ranging 2005 to 2007

Superior to stock, everything about Banks Techni-Cooler Intercooler system is bigger. It includes mandrel-bent 3.5″ high-flow boost tubes … large, high-efficiency all-aluminum end tanks instead of the wimpy stock plastic ones that can rupture under high-boost conditions … a wide-open inlet and outlet … a 19% thicker core area with a 21% improvement in volume … and a colossal super-flow High-Ram intake manifold. Techni-Cooler dramatically increases the cooling capacity by balancing the richer fuel mixture with greater airflow and cooler, denser air. Denser air has more oxygen, which improves combustion as well as engine efficiency. Result: higher continuous power and more power at any exhaust gas temp (EGT), better fuel economy and lower EGT’s. That’s a truckload of benefits! Banks Techni-Cooler delivers the maximum reduction in boost air temperature with a minimal loss of boost pressure. It doesn’t get any cooler than Techni-Cooler! Mounting hardware included.

Banks Power Techni-Cooler Intercooler System – Features and Benefits

  • Reduces Boost Air Temperatures

Others build and ship without testing. Not Banks. Our Ram-Air Intakes start out as CAD software prototypes and are put through flow simulations. The design is refined until the simulation shows optimal performance. Then a hardware prototype is made and the design is validated on a flowbench. After that comes dyno testing and on-vehicle testing. It takes a superior design to pass all those tests.

Banks Ram-Air is the only aftermarket intake with bellows. This accommodates engine movement and prevents component damage for longer service life.
