The proprietary design raises boost without increasing back-pressure at the turbine. The result is improved engine response, efficiency, and headroom for daily driving and heavy hauling.
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-Ram's performance is not just airflow, but the quality and literal weight of the air it flows. Your Cummins engine is limited in the volume of air it can flow through its 6 cylinders even at max RPM.
By increasing the mass of the air delivered to each cylinder, 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 are compromised thanks to the No. 1 fuel line, which obstructs the airflow path.
The Monster-Ram offers unparalleled airflow thanks to its custom-engineered fuel line.
All this without the need for tuning.
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!
All emission systems are retained, maintaining 50 State compliance and a CARB-EO. 2007.5-2012 Model Years: Currently Pending CARB Compliance
Due to heat, vibration, and time, a nut and stud from the factory heater grid has been documented to come loose and fall into the intake manifold. Once this happens, it will roll downhill into cylinder #6, causing catastrophic failure that requires a complete engine rebuild or replacement from bent valves, damaged pistons, and head.
Stock Heater Chokes Performance
The stock heater assembly is an airflow roadblock and becomes a magnet for soot and carbon buildup.
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 oversized inlet CNC port-matched to the Monster-Ram for zero restriction and maximum air density.
Make Way For Airflow!
Our engineers designed an all-new heating solution for the Monster-Ram that offers minimal airflow disruption.
This new Banks exclusive coil heater sits vertically inside the Monster-Ram without hindering airflow. This allows 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.
“This has got to be one of the best product victories of my whole career.”

Upgrade your fleet vehicles and protect your investment from grid heater bolt failure. Don't let the stock elbow and heater kill performance or your engine. Get back all that power you lose with 88.3% greater Mass Air Flow for a more responsive, reliable, power-efficient engine.
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.
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.
