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" 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.
Don't blow your last chance to add vital turbo boost to your engine. Whether you're just starting out or you've already made major aftermarket modifications, go for the Banks High-Ram.
Banks has done it again. Click on PROOF and see how both our value-priced 3" High-Ram wastes the competition.

BANKS BILLET INTAKE HEATER DELETE
If you want another half pound of boost, our Banks Billet Heater Delete is just the ticket. And...unlike some setups, when winter comes, you can put the Heater back in.

Here's the TEST REPORT
for your vehicle!
Here it is in red, black and white. Proof positive that Banks High-Ram outflows the competition by anywhere from 29 to nearly 57%! Did we rig the test by doing anything to hurt the other guys' product performance? No way. We just kept improving ours until we put them on all back on the trailer.
RAMMING IT TO THE COMPETITION
Being an engineer as well as a competitive-as-hell hot-rodder means pursuing every airflow advantage possible. Back in ‘98, my original Dodge High-Ram crushed the flow of the stock elbow. This established yet another path to enhanced diesel power and mileage. But it also invited a slew of imitators, offering knock-off, pretender versions. Because they’ve essentially copied our original, the competitors’ numbers look pretty good.
