Stops the competition dead in their tracks. Results in our torque and power
gains across the full operating rpm range, starting right off idle and marching
to the shift point in each gear. Derringer is dyno calibrated to use multiple
data inputs such as throttle position, rpm, vehicle speed, AFR, Knock and coolant
temperature, just like your engine's ECU. Its microprocessor based electronics
are able to actively and safely optimize calibrations in real time. No competitive
product does that.
Derringer has three switched settings: Stock, Plus and Sport. Sport produces
Best in Class performance knocks you back in your seat. The Plus setting is
for work use and has great mid-range feel. When running Plus with a loaded work
truck and/or pulling a trailer, your on ramp merging speeds and passing times
are greatly improved.
The electronics are molded into a waterproof connector, which is easily concealed
and communicates using B-Bus (Banks Bus) with other devices such as our iDash
1.8 Super Gauge/Control Center. The Derringer connects in line with the Throttle
Inlet Pressure (TIP) and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensors. But, unlike
others it also connects to the vehicle's OBDII diagnostic bus connector. A CAN
(controller area network) transceiver chip communicates with OBD or B-Bus allowing
our microprocessors to talk with the vehicle. And, Derringer's special coolant
temp watchdog prevents power addition when the engine is too cold or overheated.
The Derringer also auto-adjusts power if knock occurs due to bad fuel. Maximum
safe power is all automatic with a Derringer, you just choose your setting.
The Banks difference when it comes to L5P POWER!
The Derringer tuner — When it comes down to it, you want a real L5P tuner.
You want something that makes big power and doesn’t kill your truck. After
all, you just spent a lot of money on that beast. The Banks Derringer L5P tuner
is the only option you should be plugging into your truck. Look, the other guys
claim big numbers and we call bulls—t! We tested every other tuner on
the same dyno, same day, same weather conditions, with the same technician…
Same damn test, period! There’s only so much you can do by just intercepting
the fuel rail pressure sensor. That’s where all the others fall short.
The Derringer is the only tuner that actually utilizes your truck’s ECU
to make intelligent calculations!
How the Derringer does what it does, and why.
There’s no easy way to make more power your daily driven L5P with GM’s
ECU and factory turbo, no magic flash or special “chip” available.
We had to go the tuner route, and making an inline tuner for yourtruck was no
easy task. We have almost a thousand man-hours into Derringer development. Fortunately,
we’ve been making tuners for 20 years, so we know what we’re doing.
The Derringer is a plug-and-play microcomputer designed for easy installation,
it’s waterproof for convenient under hood mounting, and connects to the
iDash 1.8 Super Gauge for the ultimate in information and power selection, unlocking
three additional power levels.
Unlike the fixed tuning used by others, the Derringer calibration is continuously
adjusting to provide you the peak possible performance under every driving condition.
By utilizing the power of the OBD-II data, the tuner intelligently fine-tunes
its calibration on the fly without you having to change its power level.
TransCommand® Active Transmission Safety System
In addition to AutoRate Adaptive Tuning, the Derringer utilizes key engine
and transmission parameters to enhance shift performance and improve the longevity
of your transmission. Because the competitors lack the essential OBD-II data,
they always add power at wide open throttle—no matter what! This can cause
excessive transmission slip, torque converter clutch slip and even 170 HP engine
derates in order for the transmission to complete the shift. This harms the
overall performance and degrades your transmission. The Derringer is meticulously
calibrated and extensively tested to properly modulate power during shifting,
optimizing performance and safety.
The Derringer is the only tuner on the market to include ‘Active Safety’,
an active failsafe system that utilizes bypass relays to smoothly transition
your vehicle to stock power levels in the event of any trouble signs in the
Derringer. The system constantly monitors various parameters at over 50 times
a second to ensure that everything is operating as it should. If any competitive
tuners loose power or fail in any way, they will instantly trigger a “limp
home” mode where all power is lost and the vehicle dangerously slows to
a crawl. If the same fault condition occurs to the Derringer it will gracefully
remove its additional power and return to stock power levels without a hitch.
Additional Features with iDash 1.8
Stock L5P Turbo Limits
The factory turbo is done at 505 flywheel hp, that’s a gain of 60 horsepower.
Above that point, the turbine drive pressure increases dramatically as does
EGT and no more boost is available to safely add horsepower. Anyone who claims
to deliver more doesn’t understand this engine.
The Derringer L5P is the most sophisticated inline tuner available. We hope
you have as much fun driving with it as we did making it.
