Banks Power Ram-Air Intake Systems

Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System

2007.5-2010 6.6L GM Duramax LMM

OC DIESEL Part Number BA 42172 (Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System) applies to the GM Duramax Diesel equipped with a 6.6L engine from vehicle manufactured date ranging 2007.5 to 2010

Others build and ship without testing. Not Banks. Our Ram-Air Intakes start out as CAD software prototypes and are put through flow simulations. The design is refined until the simulation shows optimal performance. Then a hardware prototype is made and the design is validated on a flowbench. After that comes dyno testing and on-vehicle testing. It takes a superior design to pass all those tests.

Banks Ram-Air is the only aftermarket intake with bellows. This accommodates engine movement and prevents component damage for longer service life.

Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System – Features and Benefits

  • Extensively tested & validated
  • Increases power & fuel economy
  • Reduces exhaust gas temps (EGTs) & smoke
  • Outflows stock & competitors up to 57%

How Often Should I Clean and Service My S&B Filter?

S&B LogoThe capacity of an air filter is directly related to how often you must service your filter. Capacity is defined as the total amount of contaminants/dirt particles that the filter will hold before reaching its termination point. The termination point is a predefined restriction number that is used as the cut-off point when measuring how much dirt a filter will hold. For typical passenger cars and light-duty trucks, 10” H2O is used at the termination point.

In OE applications, a new filter must be purchased every time the filter reaches maximum capacity. Not only is this costly, but it also creates unnecessary environmental waste. When an S&B intake kit or performance air filter is installed, you simply clean and re-oil the air filter per S&B’s specifications. Keep in mind that the conditions that the vehicle is operated under will determine how quickly it will take a specific filter to reach its capacity. With this being said, you can compare the ISO 5011 test results to find the difference in capacities for the OE air filter and the S&B air filter on the Orange County Diesel website just look up the part and click on the “extended information” tab.

The spreadsheet below is the Service Factor for each filter, this compares how the frequency of Servicing the Filter is affected. For example, if the S&B filter capacity is half that of the OE filter, the Service Factor is twice that of the OE filter. Simply put, you will have to clean the S&B filter in half the time you would normally take for an OE filter to load.


It is extremely important to clean and oil your filter correctly. Instructions, oil amounts and other pertinent information regarding S&B filters can be seen on the Orange County Diesel website in the description of each filter or intake and can also be found in the manual for the product under the “extended information” tab.

S&B Performance Intake Kit? How much horsepower will I see? Will it increase fuel economy?

S&B LogoHorsepower can be increased by increasing airflow to the vehicle’s engine. Typically, the OE stock air box and induction tube significantly restrict the airflow. S&B design’s its intake kits to increase the amount of horsepower by 5-10% by allowing the engine to breathe easier.

S&B does not publish horsepower results specific to each part because the majority of our competition makes outrageous horsepower claims that are unsupported and often are accompanied by the disclaimer “Up To, As Much As, or Results May Vary.” There is no standard for dyno testing, it is difficult to hold our competition accountable for their inflated claims. S&B utilizes its 1/2 million dollar, climate controlled lab to test its intake kits and filters to the same standard (ISO 5011 Test Standard) used by the OE manufacturers, so there is substance behind S&B’s test results.

S&B publishes 2 critical results: airflow & efficiency

1. Airflow Rating: This rating shows how much the filter/intake improves the airflow vs. stock. Improving the airflow results in more power and better fuel economy.

2. Efficiency Rating: Protecting your engine while dramatically improving the airflow is S&B’s competitive advantage which is why we post the efficiency numbers along with the airflow rating. The efficiency rating shows how much dirt our filters will stop. Our minimum goal for efficiency is 99.0%.

Question:
Will an S&B cold air intake kit provide me with an improvement in fuel economy?

Answer:
The simple answer is yes. By lowering the restriction level vs. stock, the S&B intake allows the engine to work more efficiently which will improve fuel economy.

According to the Department of Energy, a dirty air filter will have an adverse affect on fuel economy. Fueleconomy.gov states that replacing a clogged air filter can improve your car’s gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.  The reason a clean filter improves fuel economy is because it is less restrictive than a dirty filter, so the engine works less to consume the air it needs. This S&B intake kit is substantially less restrictive than the OE induction system with a clean filter installed thus allowing the engine to breather even easier which results in better fuel economy. S&B does not make a specific claim with regards to fuel economy because there are too many factors that can affect your miles per gallon.
