I recently had the Banks Pedal Monster installed on my 2018 Colorado with the DuraMax Diesel. I understand this is one item that won't affect the warrenty. So far I am very impressed with the jump on take off power and have to feather the throttle back some. Tried towing our RV and was again impressed with the increased power. Doesn't increase HP or Torque but just makes the takeoff have the boost kicked in earlier. I have found the Sport setting at 4 seems to be as good as any of the higher settings so don't need to try increasing. So far I am seeing better fuel mileage as well, as long as I keep my foot out of it. Cost was about $600.00 including professional install, but could really install one yourself.
Would love feedback from others that have tried this and see what you think as well.

I've been using Pedal Commander for a few years There are so many available now, don't know if there's any difference in the quality of any of them. Banks always has a great reputation for quality stuff

I'm patiently waiting (hoping) for Banks to resume their Derringer for the twins.... but frankly not too optimistic.....:(

Ken, Thank you for your post. Throttle lag has always annoyed me on my 2017 Colorado Diesel. I had no idea such a product existed. I ordered one immediately and look forward to getting rid of that lazy throttle!

I still get a slight lag but then wants to jump out & go. I have mine set on Sport & #4. I haven't seen any difference in this setting vs increase changing to Track.

I went City 5. I found sport and track gave too much jump as you mentioned. City seems to keep the throttle curve smooth while eliminating the opening lag.

Certainly impressive, huh. Really surprised me.
Happy travels. It will be interesting to see any differences in fuel milage.
