SYSTEM INCLUDES:
  • Banks Ram-Air intake
    Banks Ram-Air intake includes a cast-aluminum Hi-Rise filter housing plus lifetime, high-flow Banks Ram-Air filter that decreases intake restriction and sends more cool, dense ram-air into your engine. This also allowin air to move through with ease. Includes a service kit for use every 30-50,000 miles.
  • Sidewinder turbocharger
    Banks utilizes an aircraft 713C Inconol turbine that outlasts and out-performs the competition because it's bigger and more efficient than the rest. The high-capacity Sidewinder compressor produces more boost and a greater volume of cooler air than the competitors' antique-style, smaller units. Banks lessens backpressure and lowers EGTs, for more power and mileage and quick response right off the line. Assembly includes wastegate actuator, pulse-tuned cast exhaust inlet/turbine mount, cast-aluminum air inlet/vent duct and cast-aluminum air inlet plenum.
  • Dynaflow muffler
    Banks replaces the factory's restrictive muffler with an aluminized, free-flowing Dynaflow muffler that contributes greatly to eliminating exhaust backpressure. Instead of using packing that can blow out the tailpipe, Banks Dynaflow is resonance-tuned to dispel exhaust gases through a suite of chambers and 3.5" outlet.
  • Monster exhaust
    Banks Monster exhaust system outflows stock and the competition. Banks' constant-diameter Monster T.O.P. turbine-outlet pipe flows better than the stock piece and preserves diesel durability by keeping the turbine-outlet EGT safely at or below factory specs. The streamlined exhaust pipe and 3.5" tailpipe are formed of aluminized, heavy-wall tubing with constant-diameter bends to slash backpressure. The polished-stainless 4" tailpipe tip provides a cool finishing touch.
  • TransCommand
    Banks' electronic TransCommand transforms E4OD and 4R100 automatics into super-duty units by continually corresponding line pressure to power and load levels. Instead of soft, car-like shift characteristics, TransCommand produces firmer shifts, especially when hauling large loads. The module senses the load and commands the transmission to raise the hydraulic pressure accordingly. Light-throttle shifts are smooth and firm, while full-throttle or heavy-load driving produces solid, decisive shifts. Excessive clutch slippage is eliminated, extending transmission life.
  • DynaFact gauges
    Banks DynaFact pyrometer protects engine life and fuel economy with precision exhaust-gas temperature (EGT) measurements, accurate within +/- 15°F at maximum operating temperatures. The pyro's spring-loaded, jeweled movement is resistant to vibration and sports a lit, easy-to-read 0-1500°F face. Banks' 0-15 psi boost gauge monitors power, turbo performance. Includes 2-gauge mounting panel. Top-mount and/or pillar-mount options available.
