The Banks Power SpeedBrake - 55449 is the ultimate, all electronic, down hill controller for your 2007.5-2010 6.6L GM Duramax LMM. You are going to love driving downhill again. This Unit comes with an on dash switch for level of braking desired.

You've crested that big hill and need to start thinking about slowing down. What do you do? Ride your service brakes and hope they don't overheat? Downshift the transmission and possibly over-rev your engine? Look for a runaway truck ramp??

When you've got a heavy load behind your truck and steep downhill grades to deal with, instead of feeling in control you can sometimes feel helpless. Not anymore. The new, all-electronic Banks Brake offers total safety and a whole lot more.

It works by modulating systems already found on the vehicle... no mechanical additions whatsoever. And its level of braking power and intensity is completely user-selectable at the turn of a switch. It's extremely easy to install, even easier to use, and best of all, we're offering Banks Brake at a value price previously unheard of!

Towing a heavy load and dealing with steep downhill grades can be a scary proposition. Under those conditions, things can happen in a big hurry. At Banks, we believe that there's no such thing as having too much braking power. If you've been in a situation where you've needed to pull up on the reigns on your truck and trailer quickly, we think you'll agree.

Gale BanksWhat's at Stake
Safety is and ought to be the number one concern when you're behind the wheel of your truck. At minimum, you want to protect your valuable property. But what we're really talking about is protecting your very life, the lives of your passengers, and even the lives of those in the vehicles around you potentially. When you need to slow down or stop in a hurry, do you have the real-time braking power and control necessary for true peace-of-mind? Well, Banks engineers have designed a most elegant - and affordable - solution.

Slow In A Hurry.
Our Banks Brake delivers exactly what you need... firm control over your truck and trailer's downhill momentum and the ability to pull up quickly if the need arises. With its easy-to-use switch control, you set the braking intensity and Banks Brake does all the rest. Your desired downhill pace is achieved and your service brakes stay cool and at the ready should conditions call for their supplemental use. Most important of all, you can rest assured and enjoy the hilly country rather than fear it.

Only Banks.
Banks Brake is truly in a league of its own. By delivering enough stopping power to bring your truck to an absolute crawl - intelligently and automatically - only Banks puts safety and peace-of-mind back on your side. The next time you crest a big hill with your truck and trailer, make sure you've got the Banks Brake riding shotgun.


Please Note:

Upgrade the switch to a Banks iQ and you add user-selectable downhill speed (25-75 mph) which is automatically maintained by the SpeedBrake, plus so much more! Please see part Banks Power SpeedBrake - 55444 for complete unit with iQ Dashboard PC.


An active component of your vehicle:
Banks iQ
SpeedBrake to Banks iQ
Only Banks' touch-screen vehicle command center gives you easy-to-use and highly flexible control of the SpeedBrake, and tells you everything you need to know at a glance.
Engine Control UnitSpeedBrake to ECU Only SpeedBrake intercepts variable geometry turbocharger, torque converter and transmission communications from the ECU and changes them to optimize the braking performance that you command.
Torque Converter
SpeedBrake to Torque Converter
SpeedBrake controls and automatically locks up the vehicle's torque converter to ensure that all engine braking force is sent directly through the transmission to the vehicle's drive wheels where it is fully utilized.
SpeedBrake to Transmission
Only SpeedBrake controls the gear selection in order to select the best gear for any given braking situation without building excessive engine RPM.
Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT)
SpeedBrake to Transmission
Only SpeedBrake captures control of the VGT, varying vane position to provide optimal engine backpressure. Braking is instantaneously variable to allow for downhill target speed control.
