A True Monster Of A RAm

The all new Monster-Ram intake elbow for the 6.7L Cummins in your Ram lives up to its name. It is an absolute MONSTER and our engineers pulled out all the stops when developing it.

100% Performance, No Tuning Needed, 50 State Compliant,
Nothing else comes close!


You want racecar level airflow?
We got that.

How's the Monster-Ram Different?
We engineered every part.

What about emission compliance?
The Banks Monster-Ram is the ONLY 50 state compliant intake elbow on the market.


Simply put...
This thing kicks everyone else's ass.

Monster-Ram Intake System


What It Does

The Monster-Ram Gen 2 improves airflow from the intercooler. It flows 72.7 lbs/min with Banks’ High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate compared to stock's 38.6 lbs/min MAF. That is a huge 88.3% improvement over stock!

The proprietary design raises boost without increasing back-pressure at the turbine. The result is a more responsive, power-efficient engine that offers more headroom than stock for higher horsepower applications.

There are two devices on your Cummins engine that increase air density; the turbocharger and the intercooler.

Anything in the system that doesn’t create air density, cuts air density. We designed the Monster-Ram to get back that lost air density.

Its All About
Mass AIr Flow

The secret to the Monster-Rams performance is not just airflow, but the quality and literal weight of the air it flows. Your Cummins engine can only flow so much CFM through its 6 cylinders even at max RPM.

By increasing the mass of the air delivered to it, your stock-tuned engine will breathe more efficiently with less stress and set the stage for huge power gains when stacked with a tune.


How We Do It

Your Cummins engine consumes a massive amount of air and struggles to breathe through its tiny, squashed inlet. The stock horn causes boost loss at the same flow while the Banks Monster-Ram has a wide, unrestricted, free-flowing path.

Engineering a better solution

All other replacement manifolds compromise their designs because of the No. 1 fuel line.

The Monster-Ram uses a new line for added clearance, this lets it have a large direct opening and flow more air without obstruction.

All this without the need for retuning the ECM, just bolt on and go!

Monitor everything

If you have an existing iDash setup, the Monster-Ram has four 1/8 inch NPT ports for installing temperature, pressure, or flow sensors.

50 State Compliant!

100% Performance and 100% Compliant

All emission systems are retained maintaining 50 State compliance and a CARB-EO.

Stock Heater
Blocks Performance

The stock heater grid chokes airflow even more, just to heat the air during cold engine starts. It is also a magnet for soot and carbon build up. The harder you drive your Ram, the worse it gets.

Owners have reported engine damage as parts of the OEM heater have come loose causing thousands of dollars worth of damage!

For peak performance, the Monster-Ram includes a custom machined high flow billet intake plate. This plate is machined to the optimum thickness and features an over sized inlet that is CNC port-matched to the Monster-Ram for zero restriction and maximum flow.

Make Way For Airflow!

Banks engineers designed an all-new heating solution for the Monster-Ram that acts as an intake manifold pre-heater.

This new Banks exclusive coil heater sits vertically inside the Monster-Ram without hindering airflow and allowing the factory grid heater to be replaced with the Banks High-Flow Billet Plate.

This eliminates the risk of engine failure due to parts loosening and falling into the engine while maintaining OEM like cold weather engine start performance.

Specifications

What it does

The Monster-Ram improves airflow from the intercooler. It flows 72.7 lbs/min MAF (Mass Air Flow) with Banks’ High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate compared to stock's 38.6 lbs/min MAF.

Monster-Ram raises boost without increasing backpressure at the turbine. The result is a more responsive, power-efficient engine that offers even more headroom than stock for higher horsepower applications.

The complete system

Banks’ High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate complete the perfect system. The High-Flow Heater allows for the removal of the restrictive stock heater grid plate. The new vertical coil-style heater provides the same functionality for cold starts as the stock grid heater but without obstructing airflow. Replacing the restrictive stock grid heater plate with the Banks High-Flow Intake Plate removes all obstructions and turbulence in the airflow path.

How it was designed

Utilizing the latest in CFD (computational fluid-dynamics), tested on the flow bench, the dyno, and on-road, Monster-Ram is a beast that only Banks could have unleashed. A direct-replacement aluminum casting, Monster-Ram is instant power, performance, and acceleration gratification. The factory inlet elbow is cramped and angular in order to accommodate the path of the stock No. 1 fuel line. Banks Engineers designed a new No. 1 fuel line, allowing the Monster-Ram to flow more air without obstruction.

Expandable

With four 1/8” NPT ports, perfect for temperature and pressure sensors, the sky's the limit for data acquisition.

Beats the competition

Like all Banks products, the Monster-Ram was tested against all available competitors. It more than doubles the improvement over the closest competitor.
