Banks High-Ram Intake Improves Response & MPG

How airflow restrictions waste power
  • Intake Restrictions cause engines to work harder.
  • Exhaust back pressure generates a massive engine heat-load
  • To expel exhaust power is taken from the crankshaft
  • The cooling fans will run more, taking power and making noise
  • Increased friction from hot, degrading lubricants
  • Gasoline-vehicle makers mask poor-airflow problems (eg. detonation) with overly-rich fuel
  • Excess fuel is wasted, worsening mileage and emissions
  • Inadequate airflow chokes engine’s potential
Larger & less restrictive than the puny stock air intake, Banks High-Ram allows a greater flow of oxygen-rich air into the cylinders for instant torque & responsiveness + greater fuel economy.
Cooler, denser air packs real power. That’s an absolute fact. So why would you choke off all that power-packed air at the last second on its way from the intercooler to the intake manifold? That’s exactly what the stock air intake does.
The 3 inch Banks High-Ram changes all that. Designed on the computer using computational fluid dynamics, tested on the flow bench and proved on the dyno, High-Ram is much more than just another pretty air inlet. For even greater airflow with more power and improved throttle response, step-up to the 3 1/2 inch Banks High-Ram system with Boost Tube.

Stock intercoolers have sharp bends and corners. As air flows around these corners dead air zones are created. These dead air zones choke down the air and restrict airflow across the heat exchanger  resulting in power robbing core heat soak.

OCDiesel.com carries aFe intercoolers for:

Dodge trucks 03-07 5.9L Cummins : 46-20011

Dodge trucks 07.5-08 6.7L Cummins: 46-20031

Dodge trucks 07.5-08 6.7L Cummins: 46-20032 (includes tube upgrade kit)

OCDiesel.com carries aFe intercooler tube upgrades for:

Dodge trucks 07.5-08 6.7L Cummins: 46-20039

GM trucks 04-07 6.6L Duramax: 46-20049

MDV Technology Three Multi-Directional Vanes are built into each end tank to efficiently direct air flow throughout the entire heat exchanger. They help eliminate power robbing core heat soak and provide maximum cooling.
