    Automind duramax unit on a 6.0L gas.... I never heard about that. I have a econmind banks on my 2000 cummins. I know that it will not work on the gas. I have EFI live on my LB7 duramax and honestly it was the best money spent. Im going to replace my Banks Ecomind on my cummins because the more I talk to performance diesel guys.. the more they don't like banks tunes. Just my 0.02cents

    x2 on Efi-Live on a Dmax truck. No hand held programmer can compare.

    I'd just get Efi-Live. My boss has a C&C 3500 GMC Dump with the duramax and a 3 position DSP switch in it. For a baby dump, that thing cruises right along. The tow tune is really nice for the enclosed mowing trailer as well.

    EFI Live all the way. I'm planning on doing a cummins swap into my 2001 2500hd duramax and I'm gonna use EFI live on the swap aswell with my dsp 5 switch.
