96821 v.6.0
The Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner has
six selectable power levels which can
be changed on the fly. Depending on
which system you have you will adjust
your power levels with a rotary switch or
with the Banks iQ. Level 1 is stock. Each
additional level will add approximately
20% of the available power increase, with
level 6 providing maximum power gain.
To prevent damage to the factory
transmission, Banks recommends
that both automatic and manual
transmission vehicles do not exceed
Level 4 while the vehicle is experiencing
load (towing, climbing a steep grade,
carrying a load, etc.).
To use the higher levels of the Six-Gun/
EconoMind Diesel Tuner while towing
or climbing, airflow improvements must
be made to lower the exhaust gas
temperature (EGT) entering the turbo.
The EGT should not exceed 1400º F for
more than a few seconds. Elevated EGT
can damage the turbocharger and the
engine.
ATTENTION! Before proceeding
with these instructions, please
carefully read the DISCLAIMER
OF LIABILITY and LIMITATION OF
WARRANTY statement located on
page 4 of this manual.you

General Installation Practices
NOTICE: A Pyrometer (EGT) probe must be installed in conjunction
with the Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner in order to enable the Six-Gun/
EconoMind’s EGT limiting function. Using the Six-Gun/EconoMind Tuner
without a Pyrometer probe can lead to detrimental damage to the engine
due to excessive EGT temperatures. EGT Temperature Limit Kit sold
separately (P/N 63077). EGT probe is included with the Economind.
1. Before starting work, familiarize
yourself with the installation procedure
by reading all of the instructions.
2.
The exploded views provide only
general guidance. Refer to each step
and section diagram in this manual for
proper instruction.
CAUTION: Do not use floor jacks to
support the vehicle while working
under it. Do not raise the vehicle
onto concrete blocks, masonry
or any other item not intended
specifically for this use.
7.
4.
During installation, keep the work
area clean. Do not allow anything to
be dropped into intake, exhaust, or
lubrication system components while
performing the installation, as foreign
objects will cause immediate engine
damage upon start-up.
5.
Save this Owner’s Manual as a
reference for system maintenance and
service.
3.
Throughout this manual, the
left side of the vehicle refers to the
driver side, and the right side to the
passenger side.
Disconnect the negative (ground)
cable from the battery (or batteries, if
there are two) before beginning work.
Route and tie wires and hoses a
minimum of 6” away from exhaust
heat, moving parts and sharp
edges. Clearance of 8” or more is
recommended where possible.
6.
When raising the vehicle, support it
on properly weight-rated safety stands,
ramps or a commercial hoist. Follow
the manufacturer’s safety precautions.
Take care to balance the vehicle to
prevent it from slipping or falling. When
using ramps, be sure the front wheels
are centered squarely on the topsides.
When raising the front of the vehicle,
put the transmission in park (automatic)
or reverse (manual), set the parking
brake, and block the rear wheels. When
raising the back of the vehicle, be sure
the vehicle is on level ground and the
front wheels are blocked securely.

Banks recommends either a Banks
iQ or a Pyrometer (EGT) gauge and
Boost gauge be installed with the SixGun Diesel/EconoMind Tuner to help
monitor performance and exhaust
gas temperature of the vehicle (see
part numbers on page 2-3). To further
increase engine life by lower EGT’s,
Banks also recommends installing a
Monster Exhaust® system (see page
2-3).
Section 1
INSTALLATION OF WIRING HARNESS, CONNECTIONS AND SIX-GUN/
ECONOMIND DIESEL TUNER
1. Disconnect the battery ground
cables from each of the batteries.
Secure the cables so that they do not
come in contact with the batttery
posts during the installation.
2. Place the Six-Gun Diesel/EconoMind
Tuner box on top of the fuse box
located in the left front side in the
engine compartment. See Figure 2.
The in-cab cable with the three small
connectors will be routed into the
cabin via the grommet on the firewall.
The other two harnesses will be routed
under the intake to their prospective
locations listed in the following steps.
3. Locate the rubber grommet on the
drivers side firewall. Using a utility
knife, make a 1.5-inch-long slit in the
grommet next to the wire harness.
Be careful not to cut or damage
the harness. See Figure 3 for the
proper location of the required cut.
Insert a screwdriver from the engine
compartment into the cut hole and
gently thrust it through the grommet.
4. Inside the vehicle, remove the
lower dash panel beneath the steering
column by removing the two (2)
screws at the bottom of the panel.
Retain the screws for re-installation.
NOTE: There are also two (2) clips
located at the top corners of the
panel, which hold the panel in place.
These clips can be released by gently
pulling on the corners of the panel.
Use caution to avoid damaging the
panel during removal.

inner grommet. See Figure 4.
6. Cut the grommet on the firewall
inside the vehicle along the hole created
by the screwdriver in Step 3.
7. Locate the in-cab cable with the
three connectors. From the engine
compartment, push the in-cab cable
through the hole cut in the firewall
grommet.
NOTE: Taping the end of the cable to
a piece of stiff wire (i.e. coat hanger)
may make routing the cable through
the firewall a simpler task. The stiff wire
should be pushed through the slit in
the grommet and then the wires can
be attached to the stiff wire and pulled
through the hole in the grommet.
CAUTION: Pull gently to avoid
damage to the cable connectors.
Always pull on the cable sheath
rather than the wires themselves.
8. From inside the vehicle, continue to
pull the in-cab cable through the firewall
until it is approximately 22” inside the
cab. Secure the cable to the lower
access panel area. Take precaution to
leave the three connectors accessible
for usage further in the installation
process.
9. Locate the Banks OBDII Interface
Cable and 11” cable tie in your kit.
Connect the OBDII Interface Cable to
the vehicle OBDII connector. Use the
11” cable tie as shown in Figure 5
to secure the Banks interface cable
to the vehicle OBDII connector. Now,
connect the 8-pin connector from the
Banks OBDII Interface Cable to the 8-pin
connector on the Six-Gun/EconoMind

OPTIONAL THERMOCOUPLE INSTALLATION (REQUIRED FOR
OPTIONAL BANKS iQ AND ECONOMIND)
1. The thermocouple monitors the
temperature of the exhaust gases
entering the turbocharger at the
turbine housing. Installation requires
that the exhaust manifold be drilled
near the outlet of the manifold
adjacent to the turbine housing. For
this reason it is essential that the
turbocharger be removed from the
engine in order to clean out any metal
chips from drilling that could cause
turbine blade damage.
NOTE: The Cummins ISB engine uses
a divided exhaust manifold. The
thermocouple may be installed to
sample exhaust temperature in either
exhaust passage. We recommend the
rear passage (toward the firewall).
2. Loosen the clamps that attach the
air inlet tube to the air filter housing
and to the turbocharger, and remove
the air inlet tube from the vehicle.
Remove the air filter housing from the
vehicle. This will allow easier access to
the turbocharger.
3. Loosen the upper hose clamp on
the turbocharger oil drain-tube hose
that is located between the two
sections of the oil drain tube.
4. Disconnect the oil supply hose
at the turbocharger. Disconnect the
compressor outlet hose that goes to
the intercooler.
5. Disconnect the turbine outlet pipe
by loosening the V-band. Save V-band
for re-installation.
6. Remove the turbocharger mounting
nuts/bolts and the turbocharger from
the exhaust manifold. Clean and
inspect the exhaust flange mounting
surfaces on the exhaust manifold.
Make sure the surface is clean and dry.
CAUTION: Anytime the
turbocharger is removed from
the engine, take care that no
foreign objects enter any of the
24
96821 v.6.0
turbocharger connections on the
engine or the turbocharger. Foreign
objects entering air, exhaust, or
oil connections may cause major
damage to the engine and/or
turbocharger and is not covered
under any warranty. Cover the
open end of the intercooler pipe
with a clean rag, as this pipe is
very susceptible to foreign object
entry.
7. Stuff clean shop towels into the
compressor outlet and inlet hoses to
prevent contamination from entering
the pipes. Cover the turbo oil drainpipe
to avoid contamination.
8. Stuff a small clean shop towel
or rag 4 to 5 inches into the rear
exhaust manifold passage through the
turbocharger mounting flange. This
is to prevent chips from entering the
manifold while drilling and tapping.
9. Use a 7⁄ 16” drill, keeping the drill
perpendicular to the manifold surface
and drill through the exhaust manifold
into the rear passage as shown in
Figure 20.
10. Tap the drilled hole with a 1⁄ 4”
NPT pipe tap. Check the thread depth
as you tap by periodically removing
the tap and screwing the pipe coupling
into the tapped hole. The coupling
should thread in 3 to 31⁄ 2 turns hand
tight. Do not install the probe in place
at this time.
11. Remove all loose chips from the
exhaust manifold. A shop vacuum or
small brush will help. Now remove the
rag using a welding rod or coat hanger
bent into a hook.
Caution! Make sure rags are
removed from exhaust manifold
prior to reinstalling turbocharger!
12. Install the thermocouple in the
manifold using anti-seize on the
threads.
13. Attach the thermocouple to the
supplied thermocouple lead wire
extension with the supplied nuts and
bolts. The YELLOW thermocouple wire
attaches to the YELLOW extension
wire’s, the RED thermocouple wire
attaches to the RED extension wire.
Cover this joint with the supplied heat
shrink tubing and heat until the tubing
conforms to the joint. Make sure the
entire joint is insulated.
14. Route the thermocouple lead wire
extension along the factory harness to
the driver’s side and connect it to the
Six-Gun/EconoMind harness with the
supplied nuts and bolts. The YELLOW
wire attaches to the free YELLOW
wire on the Six-Gun/EconoMind
Diesel Tuner. The RED extension wire
attaches to the free RED wire on the
Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner.
Cover this joint with the supplied heat
shrink tubing and heat until the tubing
conforms to the joint. Make sure the
entire joint is insulated.
CAUTION: Remove all the rags that
are inside the compressor hoses
and the exhaust manifold before
re-installing the turbocharger.
15. Install the new turbine inlet
gasket provided and apply a dab
of anti-seize compound to the four
turbo mounting studs. Install the
turbocharger on the exhaust manifold.
As the turbocharger is reinstalled, slip
the oil drain tube into the drain hose.
Tighten the turbocharger mounting
nuts to 24 ft-lbs. Tighten the oil drain

16. Reconnect and tighten the turbo
oil supply hose.
17. Reconnect the turbine outlet pipe
to the turbocharger and secure it with
the V-band.
18. Re-connect the compressor outlet
hose that goes to the intercooler.
19. Re-install the air filter housing
that was previously removed.
20. Reconnect the ground cables to
the vehicles batteries.
NOTE: Once the Six-Gun/
EconoMind Diesel Tuner is
powered up at key-on, it will
‘learn’ that a thermocouple
is installed and automatically
enable the EGT limiting function.
If the thermocouple is removed
after being installed and run on the
vehicle, the Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel
Tuner will assume that the sensor or
connection has gone bad, and cease
adding power while triggering the
[2,3] diagnostic code (see Trouble
Shooting Section 7). To ensure that
the Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner
operates properly after removing a
previously installed thermocouple,

it needs to learn your transmission
configuration. This always occurs
when the Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel
Tuner is first installed on the truck.
The Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner
is equipped with advanced safety
features to preserve your automatic
transmission. One of them is the
capability to detect the occurrence
of transmission slip, and it will
automatically de-rate the engine
output power accordingly.

Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner that
your truck is equipped with a manual
transmission drive the truck at a speed
over 55 mph for at least 2 minutes.
The “4,3” diagnostic code will be
eliminated. Repeat if necessary to

3. (Auto Trans) To teach the Six-Gun/
EconoMind Diesel Tuner that your
truck is equipped with an automatic
transmission drive the truck at a speed
over 55mph untill the torque converter
is locked (the toque converter is
usually locked at speeds over 55mph).
With the torque converter locked and
with turbo boost below 10psig (ie, light
load), maintain the attained speed
steadily for at least 30 seconds. Once
the transmission is learned, the “4,3”
diagnostic code will be eliminated.
Repeat if necessary to eliminate code.
-END, SECTION 5-
Section 6
CHECKING ENGINE PERFORMANCE
The Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel
Tuner requires the engine coolant
temperature (ECT) to be above 120º
before it will add fuel. If the optional
Banks iQ or DynaFact® gauges are
installed, observe the operation of
the boost and pyrometer (EGT) gauge
values while driving under varying
conditions. Turbocharger boost
pressure will increase as a function of
load and engine RPM, thus the engine
will produce little boost while cruising
at light throttle, with maximum boost
while climbing hills heavily loaded
during acceleration. Note the boost
level seen during hard acceleration
with a given load. If performance
seems to have deteriorated sometime
in the future, the maximum boost
figures may be compared to see if
boost has dropped off. Lower boost
may be caused by turbo ducting
leaks, a malfunctioning wastegate or
fuel injection pump, or dirty air filter.
Typical maximum boost pressure
settings will vary considerably with
stick or automatic transmission
options, year model of vehicle and
altitude. NOTE: Before key-off, check
tuner for error codes.
monitor exhaust gas temperature
(EGT) in the engine. At idle, exhaust
gas temperature will be very low,
perhaps only 300°F. As the engine
is accelerated for higher speeds
with greater loads, the EGT will rise.
The highest EGT will be seen under
maximum load at full throttle, such as
climbing a steep grade with a heavily
laden vehicle.
Use your Banks iQ or EGT gauge to
-END, SECTION 6-
To avoid heat damage to various
engine components it is recommended
that the exhaust gases cool below
400º before the engine is shut down.
When EGT Temperature Limit Kit/
Thermocouple installed, your SixGun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner is
calibrated to maintain a maximum
EGT of 1350°F on levels 2-5 (2-6 with
EconoMind). You may experience
brief excursions slightly above 1350°F
under acceleration. This is normal and
EGT should return to 1350°F or below
within a few seconds. ⚠CAUTION:
Level 6 EGT limit set at 1500º F. If
you find that EGT remains high for any
length of time, check for boost leaks or
a dirty air filter.

TROUBLESHOOTING WITHOUT THE
BANKS iQ
Your Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel Tuner
is equipped with diagnostic features
that will detect and display certain
errors. Remove the Six- Gun Diesel
Tuner from its mounting location while
keeping all connectors plugged in. Turn
the vehicle key to the ON position.
Observe the two LEDs mounted on
the end of the Six-Gun/EconoMind
Diesel Tuner, next to the harnesses.
If all wire connections are correct,
a steady GREEN LED is illuminated.
If the GREEN LED is not illuminated
when the ignition is ON, check power
supply hookup and the fuse on the
Six-Gun/EconoMind main wire harness.
If the connections and fuse are okay,
contact Banks Technical Service. If a
connection is incorrect or if there is
a problem with the system, when the
ignition is ON the RED LED will flash
in sequence to identify a diagnostic
code. A Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel
Tuner’s diagnostic code is comprised
96821 v.6.0
29
of 2 digits. Each code is expressed in a
sequence of 2 sets of the flashing RED
LED separated by a brief flashing of the
GREEN LED in between. Each set of a
number of RED LED flashes represents
a digit. A longer flashing of the GREEN
LED separates the sequences. The
LEDs will continue to flash to display
all the errors, and then repeat. Table 1
lists the available diagnostic codes and
there commended course of action
for each. For example, if a faulty
thermocouple is detected (code “2,3”)
by the Six-Gun/EconoMind Diesel
Tuner, the following RED and GREEN
LED flashing sequence is observed
when the ignition is ON:
(1) Two times flashing RED LED
(2) One time quick flashing GREEN LED
(3) Three times flashing RED LED
(4) One time longer flashing GREEN
LED. The above flashing sequence
will repeat continuously. When the
problem is corrected, the diagnostic
code will be eliminated and replaced
30
96821 v.6.0
by a steady GREEN LED.
NOTE: If multiple codes are set, they
will be displayed in a series separated
