Once installed, the Derringer Results in torque and power gains across the entire 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, coolant temperature, and EGT, just like your engine’s ECM. It actively and safely optimizes calibrations in real-time, thanks to its OBD-II connectivity. No competitive tuner does that.
Derringer has six levels, adjustable on-the-fly using the iDash. Level 6 produces best-in-class performance. Level 3 is designed for work use and has a great mid-range feel. When running Level 3 with a loaded truck or pulling a trailer, your on-ramp merging speeds and passing times are greatly improved.
The electronics are enclosed in a compact housing which is easily concealed and communicates with other Banks devices such as our iDash DataMonster, iDash SuperGauge, and PedalMonster throttle booster. The Derringer connects in line with your truck’s engine sensors. But unlike other tuners, it also connects to the vehicle’s OBD-II diagnostic bus.
ActiveSafety health monitoring circuitry keeps an eye on the vehicle and the module itself. It checks its health 100 times a second. If it detects an issue, the Derringer instantly bypasses itself, sets a device diagnostic code, and seamlessly returns the truck to stock power. Plus, Derringer’s special coolant temp monitoring prevents power addition when the engine is too cold or overheated. The Derringer also auto-adjusts power if a knock occurs due to the wrong fuel. Maximum safe control is all automatic with a Derringer — you choose your preferred power level and enjoy the ride.
