Banks Power - 66577 - F150 Derringer Tuner with ActiveSafety EcoBoost 3.5L (15-16)
- 2015 - 2016 Ford F-150 3.5L V6 EcoBoost
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. It’s exclusive in our new Derringer In-Line Tuners and it’s 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 as well as values from any connected Banks Bus modules 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 Derringer’s 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%. This is provides a short term power boost beyond the Derringer’s 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!

About Banks Power
Fifty years of engineering milestones for Banks Power president and founder Gale Banks began at age 14 with an engine teardown of his mother’s ’31 Ford Model A that resulted in an increase of 65 horsepower. Just two years later, in 1958, Gale was officially in the engine business, first in Lynwood, California, then in San Gabriel. He remains the hands-on president to the manufacturing and engineering complex that today occupies 12 acres in the San Gabriel Valley town of Azusa.
The bedrock integrity of Gale Banks is at the very core of Banks Power. Gale’s fundamental principles combine old-fashioned business ethics and service with leading technology, elegantly engineered products, superior construction, scientifically proven performance, and reasonable prices. Our company history speaks for itself.
Banks Power is known far and wide as the premier designer and manufacturer of power-enhancing products for diesel- and gas-powered light trucks, motorhomes, and sport-utility vehicles. Since the 1960s, Gale’s futuristic high-performance engines have broken new ground while shattering world records. His marine engines propelled racing boats to national and world championships, and in military mode, his marine engines were chosen to power U.S. Navy SEAL covert-action boats. After decades of racing, Banks Power is still the only company to have set records at Bonneville in both automobile and truck classes.
As a recognized authority, Gale has taught engine design to graduate students at General Motors Institute, covering many subjects: engine architecture, turbochargers (design and application), fuel systems, exhaust systems, marine turbocharging, ignitions and camshafts, intercooling, and more. He currently serves on the SEMA Board of Directors and is an advisor for the Automotive X PRIZE.
Just two years after Gale founded what for decades has been the industry leader in engine performance, he set his first speed record, 189 mph in 1960 at El Mirage dry lake, with a modified 1953 Studebaker. Since then, Gale has been in the winner’s circle countless times, setting a litany of marine and automotive performance marks and laying claim to such titles as World’s Fastest Passenger Car, World’s Fastest Pickup, World’s Fastest Motorhome, and, most recently, World’s Fastest Diesel Drag Racing Truck.
The Banks company history is studded with technological achievements, including Gale’s pioneering work in turbocharging marine engines in 1969, the premiere of twin-turbo small-block Chevy engines in 1978, and the invention (and patent) of the Banks OttoMind electronic fuel-management module in 1997.
