Banks Transcommand

If you own a Ford truck or van manufactured after 1989 then you might find yourself concerned with slips in the transmission and the softer shifts it goes through.  Designed for your 1997-2005 Ford Powerstroke with 4R100 or E4OD automatic transmission, the Banks Power TransCommand was designed to steer your vehicle away from the car-like shifts it goes though.  The TransCommand is a computer that manages your automatic transmission, sensing your vehicle’s tow load and balancing the hydraulic pressure in the transmission accordingly.  Your vehicle’s light-throttle shifts will perform in a smooth but firm way while using the full-throttle will see it using a solid, decisive shift eliminating clutch slippage and extending your transmission’s lifetime.  The system was built with easy to install, high temperature, solid-state components.

The electronic engine control, or EEC, built into your vehicle to moderate the electronic pressure valve, or EPV, will usually not synchronize with an added Banks installation therefore leading to clutch slippage and damaging your transmission.  Your safest bet is to install the TransCommand which will increase the hydraulic pressure when it senses the EEC doing so by a certain percentage.  The TransCommand takes into consideration your vehicle’s load and calculates this into the added hydraulic pressure.  An added bonus of decreasing your vehicle’s clutch slip is an improved acceleration rate.

But that isn’t to say that the only reason to install the Banks Power TransCommand is if you have installed Banks products on your vehicle already.  You can install it to improve your clutch shift no matter what as long as your vehicle has a E4OD or 4R100 automatic transmission; gas or diesel.  The fact is that the system will extend your transmission’s life and reduce its maintenance time and expenses.  Why go through the pain of installing a new transmission into your vehicle when you could install the TransCommand and forgo that huge price.

The system is quickly installed in 10-15 minutes and includes a bypass plug that can return your Ford to factory conditions should anything go wrong.  With all the pluses this system provides, it should be a no-brainer to get a Banks Power TransCommand for yourself.  So go pick one up online at Banks Power Products using the left hand side search bar or call 714-848-2170.

2009-10 Ford F-150 5.4L and 6.2L

If your like me and own a Ford you already know how reliable of a vehicle they are, and the amount of power they can provide. But even then sometimes you want to get some added power for you truck, well let me tell you Banks Power Products just doesn’t make aftermarket parts for diesel vehicles anymore, they also make great aftermarket products for gas vehicles as well. They make some of the best aftermarket products out there and they have some exhaust systems, and air intake systems for your 2009-10 Ford F-150 5.4L and 6.2L truck. A great example of one of the exhaust systems that Banks offers is the Banks Power Dual Monster Exhaust System for a 2009-2010 5.4L Ford Pickup. This beast of an exhaust system not only looks good but gives your Ford some nice improvements. Some of the perks are that it cuts backpressure by over 79% and increasing the exhaust flow by 138% to provide your “baby” with some added pressure. It is made from 100% heavy-duty stainless steel with constant diameter piping. Not to mention the pipes have been Mandrel-bent, this means a steel rod was inserted while they were bending, this provides greater air flow and prevents any “kinks” from normal bending. Not to mention the polished straight-through muffler that outflows stock systems will give your truck a pleasing yet still authoritative tone.

Now the air intake system that Banks offers has got to be the system out on the market right now, very few can even come close to comparing to it. The unique enclosed housing is designed to help reduce the amount of hot, underpowered air and help bring in more cold, dense air unlike many stock air intake systems that face the fender where most of the heated air can reside. To not only give you increased power but also increased fuel economy, which is great since gas prices seem to be increasing by 10 cents every week! This intake system comes with a 5 year warranty and lifetime warranty on the air filter. Chances are you won’t ever have to use the warranty because of the massive amount of testing Banks does on their products. All products start off as CAD software prototypes where they are digitally tested. When it passes, a physical prototype is created and is sent to the flow bench to be tested. When passing that it is installed into a vehicle to be dyno tested, after that it is sent off to its last and most important test, that’s when it gets field tested to ensure that it will not only perform in the shop but in the real world a well.
