Gale Banks Engineering Stinger® System for 1999 Ford F-250 & F-350 with 7.3L Power Stroke Diesel & Automatic Transmission with Catalytic Converter
Budget-minded Stinger ladles on power, with tops gains of +68 hp and +128 lb-ft torque and 10% more towing miles-to-the-tank.
Banks Ram-Air filter is a lifetime, high-flow air-cleaner element that decreases intake restriction and sends more cool, dense ram-air into your engine. Even wet or dirty, Banks Ram-Air filters outperform conventional ones, because the multi-layer design traps moisture, dust and debris on the oiled, outer surface, allowing air to move through with ease. Includes a service kit for use every 30-50,000 miles.
With twice the diaphragm area and spring pressure of the stock wastegate, Banks BigHead keeps the valve seated longer. BigHead produces massive torque right from idle, achieves a higher peak boost, sooner, and maintains more boost throughout the powerband by eliminating premature wastegate blow-open.
Banks' electronic OttoMind Diesel Tuner perfects the air-fuel ratio, maintains exhaust gas temperatures (EGT) safely at or below the stock recommendation, and tunes low-end torque for strong acceleration and load-pulling capability. Unlike "fits-all" chips that provide crude fuel increases, OttoMind precisely matches fuel delivery to Banks' airflow improvements, so your diesel engine will last its 300-400,00-mile lifetime. Each OttoMind is calibrated to a specific, corresponding Power Stroke engine code.
Replaces the factory's restrictive muffler with Banks' polished-stainless steel Monster muffler, featuring a straight-through 4"-diameter flow-path with Banks' designed expansion chamber, which dissipates the annoying mid-range exhaust drone so prominent in competitors straight-through mufflers. Utilizes spun ceramic, very-high-temperature packing. Delivers an authoritativebut never intrusiveexhaust sound.
Banks Monster exhaust outflows stock and the competition. Banks' constant-diameter Monster T.O.P. (turbine-outlet pipe) flows better than the stock piece and preserves diesel durability by keeping the turbine-outlet EGT safely at or below factory specs. The streamlined exhaust pipe and 3-1/2" tailpipe are formed of stainless, heavy-wall tubing with constant-diameter bends to slash backpressure. Huge 5" polished-stainless steel tailpipe tip sports a rolled edge. Double-walled design with 1/2" air gap keeps heat from tarnishing exterior mirror finish. Adjustable clamp for positioning on tailpipe.
For those with Ford E4OD or 4R100 automatic transmissions: Banks' electronic TransCommand transforms E4OD and 4R100 automatics into super-duty units by continually corresponding shifts to power and load levels. Instead of soft, car-like shift characteristics, TransCommand produces firmer shifts, especially when hauling large loads. The module senses the load and commands the transmission to raise the hydraulic pressure accordingly. Light-throttle shifts are smooth and firm, while full-throttle or heavy-load driving produces solid, decisive shifts. Excessive clutch slippage is eliminated, extending transmission life.
Superior precision and durability are hallmarks of Banks DynaFact gauges. The pyrometer provides exhaust gas temperature (EGT) measurements that are accurate within ±15° F at maximum operating temperatures. Its spring-loaded jeweled movement is resistant to vibration and sports a lit, easy-to-read 0-1500° F face. Banks 0-40 psi boost gauge monitors power and turbo performance. Includes 2-gauge mounting panel.
Systems with Banks OttoMind must match Vehicle Calibration code --Four-character code with Three letters followed by one digit (eg:NVK6) on tag at forward end of driver's door. Also can be found on black plastic ECU box under dash, left of pedals. Code is on back of ECU, facing rear of Vehicle. You will be contacted to verify this code before order is processed.
