I'm so on the fence about these tunes. The drivability and fun factor would no doubt increase, along with useful functions like EGR delete and the engine braking capability. MPG increases, power increases, etc etc. All great attributes of an aftermarket tune that are so appealing.

But when all said and done, no matter how you slice it, the OEM specs have been changed and the warranty had been compromised.

I just don't know if I want the hassle of trying to cover my tracks should something go wrong in the first 100k miles of ownership. Anybody else struggle with that?

Of course.. That's why I don't have one! :D

But, eventually I'll give in, but it will be for the deletes along with the increase in power. If I'm going to void my warranty, I want to make it worth it.

I feel the same way...it would be money well spent until something happens....which for these motors has not been terribly uncommon...I just can't see a little fun over the price of possibly having to pay for an engine or even a cooler job...I like my warranty way too much for any of that.

Banks is probably a little more conservative on their tunes etc. But I have faith they put a solid product. It may not give you the highest power etc. But they do a lot more R&D than most companies to what they put out and how it will affect the longevity of your powertrain.
