Banks Ram-Air Superiority. (2011-15) Flowbench developed, dyno proven cold-air intake with enclosed housing improves flow up to 35%. Increases power and fuel economy. Reduces exhaust gas temps and sooty, black smoke. Testing, testing and more testing. Banks Ram-Air Intake Systems are tested and proven. They start out as CAD software prototypes and are put through flow simulations. After a hardware prototype is made, it's tested on a flowbench. Then it's tested on the vehicle. And finally, Banks' density-tests the Ram-Air against stock and many competitors. Proven design. Proven performance. Thanks to its enclosed cold-air housing, huge inlet, giant dome-shaped lifetime filter and streamlined design, Banks Ram-Air Intake maximizes the flow of cool, dense air to the engine for greater power and fuel economy. It flows 35% better than stock. And delivers greater air density to the turbo's inlet than the stock system and every competitor tested! It's all about density. And Banks Ram-Air Intakes deliver. The harder you work your truck, the more Banks Ram-Air Intake improves power and fuel economy! Longer service life, too. An aftermarket exclusive: with 5 inch bellows, Banks Ram-Air accommodates engine movement, which protects the components and extends service life. What's more, Ram-Air is designed to not cause fault or error codes. NEW FILTER OPTIONS! Choose from the traditional red, oiled filter or the all-new black, dry filter. Plus, you can even get an extra layer of filtration protection by adding a pre-filter to your order.

Passes the test. Again and again.

  • 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!

Filter on a stick: a joke that’s not funny.

  • A filter on a stick is a bad joke. It’s wide-open to hot, power-robbing underhood engine air. Ram-Air houses a giant limited lifetime filter in an enclosed cold-air box, which inhales cool, dense outside air—more than Banks’ competitors and up to 57% more than stock—for more power (up to +39 hp/+69 lb-ft, with tuner). More mileage, lower EGTs and less smoke, too. And it’s designed to not cause fault or error codes.

Bellows, too? Very exclusive.

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