Want More Power From Your EcoDiesel? Banks Power Has The Solution!
The Banks Bullet for the 2014-2015 Ram 1500 and 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers owners of EcoDiesel powered vehicles the ability to select from three power levels: Stock, Tow and Sport, plus it reads boost or injection percentage. These power levels are adjustable on-the-fly. Dyno testing proves that the Banks Bullet can boost the power output of your EcoDiesel by 37 hp and 57 lb-ft of torque. Tested on the same truck and the same dyno, these numbers plus the $449 street price, blow away the competition, regardless of their advertising claims.
The Bullet comes with a single-gauge mounting panel, but you can also get a pillar-mount console, shown above (currently the pillar-mount is available only for the Dodge Ram).
This video from SEMA shows how the Bullet works by intercepting and adjusting the communication between your turbocharged truck or SUV's engine and ECU, the Banks Bulllet tuner can add horsepower, torque, and performance you can feel, safely and economically.
The EcoDiesel engine was introduced to the market in 2014, as an option in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500. This 3.0L V6 diesel engine is reliable, fuel efficient and offers reasonable power in stock trim. However there is room for improvement, and the Banks Bullet is the perfect answer to improving the power of your EcoDiesel.
The primary goals when developing the Banks Bullet for the EcoDiesel was to increase power, improve drivability and to maintain engine dependability. This requires an understanding of the potential gains and limitations of the EcoDiesel engine. We've been working with the VM V6 diesel since 2012, and put our understanding and expertise regarding the platform to work and developed the Banks Bullet® inline tuner for EcoDiesel enthusiasts. No other aftermarket manufacturer has our expertise and experience with this engine.
More Than Just A Tuner
The Tow and Power modes of the Banks Bullet potentially improve the mileage of your EcoDiesel too. In addition, the Banks Bullet also functions as a digital boost gauge that can be set to trigger a visual alarm (a red LED). This function is adjustable in a range of 20-50 PSI, in 1 PSI increments. Also available is the ability to show engine fueling in percentages. Baseline, stock shows fuel at 100-percent, higher numbers indicate the additional fuel the Banks Bullet is providing the engine for increased power. For example, 120-percent indicates a fuel flow that is 20-percent over stock. The Banks Bullet for the EcoDiesel is capable of adding more fuel as needed, up to the plus 20-percent point.
