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, 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 boosting feature similar to our military Combat Power settings available only in the Sport setting. As a result, running Sport, the Derringer 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 MAP (manifold absolute pressure) and TIP (throttle inlet pressure) 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. 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!
