I have exactly the set up you are asking about on my 07 F250 Crew Cab, only it is the older 6 Gun with PDA and Big Hoss bundle. I love the Banks system, but it does nothing for the transmission. That said, I bought a SCT X3. You don't have to remove the Banks system or unhook it to program with the SCT as the Banks system is a tuner (works inline), not a programmer and does not change the stock program or interfere with flashing the program. You just unplug the OBD II connector, plug in the SCT and program away. When you are done, plug the Banks OBD II connector back in for your monitoring and engine control, then drive away. Just make sure you select transmission only programming. You should be able to use a stock SCT X3. Then you will have canned programs to use in other vehicles if you like when not using in your truck, or if you are careful to be sure you have your Banks system in power level 1 (stock) you could compare performance of the SCT programmer with the Banks tuner.
By the way. I did the EGR mod and got codes, so I left everything as modified, but put the EGR valve back in the intake and plugged it in electrically. Since the passages are otherwise blocked off, same result, but the computer is happy; no codes. I did this to my 2007 and my 2005.
