Stops the competition dead in their tracks. Six years of engine and chassis dyno experience developing and selling this engine for military use 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, EGT and coolant temperature, just like your engine’s ECU. So 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 featuring Afterburner, a 10-second throttle actuated and EGT controlled boosting feature similar to our military Combat Power settings available only in the Sport setting. As a result, running Sport, the Derringer knocks a full second off your 0-60 time, 2.1 seconds off your 0-80 time and a full 4 seconds off 0-100 times. 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 FRP (fuel rail pressure) and TMAP (intake manifold air temperature and pressure) sensors. But, unlike others it is also in line with the EGT (exhaust gas temperature) sensor and 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. Maximum safe power is all automatic with a Derringer, you just choose your setting.
We have a name for our new tuning methodology. Its exclusive in our new Derringer In-Line Tuners and its called, Adaptive Tuning! Adaptive tuning is new because, unlike the competition, this tuning software leverages all the information available on the vehicle OBD II connector to make tuning decisions. In a world where in-line tuners operate knowing only basic information supplied by the sensors they happen to be connected in-line with, Banks has removed the ignorance. The Derringers Adaptive Tuning software taps the intelligence of the vehicle ECU without violating it with a reflash. This OBD intelligence injection, allows the Derringer to produce more power, safely, at any altitude and under any atmospheric conditions. Also on Diesel applications, Adaptive Tuning supports our exclusive throttle activated, Push to Pass power boosting feature!
Push to Pass sends a short term turbine energy boost to the turbocharger, at throttle settings greater than 95 percent. This is provides a short term power boost beyond the Derringers Peak Power setting by extending peak power and or producing additional power for 10 to 15 seconds and works automatically when the Derringer is on its highest power setting. So, push the pedal all the way to the metal and enjoy yourself!
The idea of stacking in line tuners is fOiled by the EcoDiesel ECU. It limits EGT to 1500F. We manipulate that with the afterburner and get all there is to be had. Stacking anything on top of this,as long as you’re running the stock turbo, is a fools errand. And, a waste of your money.
