Exhaust

When it comes down to it, there’s a huge amount of exhaust systems out there on the Banks Power Products website for all types of vehicles.  To narrow down the selection, search by the type of vehicle you have, using the categories located at the left side of the screen or the search bar.  Once you’ve got it narrowed down to say 100 or less, now you can organize this choice by their price from lowest to highest, their popularity, name, availability, and newness.  So let’s say you’re searching for an exhaust system to fit your 2002-2004 6.6L GM Duramax LB7 pickup with an extended or crew cab long bed configuration and no catalytic converter, you could check out the Banks Power Dual Exhaust PowerPack System.

This bundle comes with the Banks Ram-Air Intake System, the Monster Diesel Duals Exhaust, the EconoMind Diesel Tuner and Banks iQ, the Techni-Cooler Intercooler system, the Monster Muffler, and the BigHead Wastegate Actuator.  This system will fully optimize your vehicle’s towing capabilities with massive increases to torque, horsepower, and the fuel economy.  The stock exhaust system that comes with the LB7 has tons of airflow bottlenecks, like the intercooler, which restrict the airflow and density of the air.  The PowerPack system replaces that shoddy system increasing the airflow, density of air, and cutting backpressure in your vehicle.  The exhaust pipes are an open, free-flowing design constructed with mandrel-bending techniques, with 4″ stainless-steel pipes.

Another exhaust system you can check out is the Banks Power Dual Exhaust Big Hoss Bundle designed for a 2003-2004 5.9L Dodge Cummins diesel pickup truck with a standard cab long bed or a crew cab short bed configuration and equipped with a catalytic converter.  This is a big jumble of different systems like the PowerPack system, coming with the Banks Ram-Air Intake System, the Monster Diesel Duals Exhaust, the Six-Gun Diesel tuner and Banks iQ Dashboard PC, the Techni-Cooler Intercooler System, Monster Ram, the Monster Muffler, and the BigHead Wastegate Actuator.  This bundle will give you massive gains including an increase of 126 horsepower, 290 torque to the rear-wheels, lower EGTs (exhaust gas temperatures), and cutting your vehicle’s backpressure.

So if Banks’ many different exhaust systems piques your interest, then go ahead and research them or other products online at Banks Power Products using the search bar located at the left-hand side of the screen or call at 714-848-2170.

Banks Sidewinder Turbo

So you find yourself with a 1983-1993 6.9L, 7.3L Ford Pickup and you want to know if you can upgrade your truck’s systems just like all the guys with newer model trucks do.  Well luckily for you, Banks Power has just the thing for your diesel truck, the Banks Power Wastegated Sidewinder Turbo.  To put your old truck back up to competing with newer trucks, this system has all the power you need.  With its addition of 82 horsepower and huge increase of 143 to your torque, this bad boy will have your old boy up and kicking in no time, well usually 10.5 hours but you know what I mean.

The system has a bonus of 10% improved fuel economy which when combined with the additions to horsepower and torque, your truck will be able to tow like never before.  With the Sidewinder TurboCharger Assembly and its angled mounts design installed, your truck will be moving larger volumes of air more efficiently, thereby improving your performance.  The larger design ensures this system will both outlast and outperform the competition with its Banks Aircraft 713C Inconol turbine.  This system will help reduce backpressure and will lower your EGTs (exhaust gas temperatures) which will lead to a greater power and mileage, as well as a quick response from the line.

Another component of this system is the Banks Ram-Air Intake and included with that is a 30-50,000 mile service kit.  The Ram-Air intake system sends cooler, denser air into your engine and decreases intake restriction through its cast-aluminum Hi-Rise filter housing design and the lifetime guaranteed high-flow Banks Ram-Air filter.  With its multilayer design, the filter effectively stays cleaner longer and allows air to flow through in ease.

One of the main goals Banks Power is trying to achieve, is to make sure that you understand what the parts in your car are doing and to make sure you get the most efficient upgrades.  Banks’ products are all improvements to stock companions and they have the proof with all the extensive testing they carry out. The Sidewinder Turbo system is no exception when it comes to the sheer quality of service it can provide your truck.  So if this is enough to convince you to try it out or you simply want to read up a bit more on the subject, then be sure to check out Banks Power Products online using the left-hand side search bar or call at 714-848-2170.

Stinger System

One thing that Banks Power sure has a lot of is good deals on huge parts packages.  For example, take into account the Banks Power Single Exhaust Stinger System, with that many upgrades installed onto your 2003-2004 6.0L Ford Powerstroke F-250, F-350 – Standard Cab Long Bed, your vehicle will be able to handle the toughest of towing jobs without breaking a sweat.

First up on our review of all the systems included in this deal is the Banks Ram-Air Intake System that out powers all other aftermarket models and flows up to 38% more efficiently than the stock variety.  With its dome-shaped, cotton gauze filter, the system flows a lot more freely than the regular paper ones.  It has a streamlined design to enhance the flow of exhaust, free of sharp bends and corners.

Next up is a decision by you: to go with either a dual exit or single exit exhaust system for your diesel vehicle.  Both systems are designed using the same Mandrel-bending techniques to enhance flow but the duals will improve your exhaust flow a bit.  The main appeal of the dual exit exhaust system is the cosmetic appeal of a symmetrical system of pipes on your truck.

Then comes the EconoMind Diesel Tuner & Banks iQ, which allow you to perform the most minute tweaks to your vehicle’s boost adding up to 100 horsepower and 175 torque, controlling all of this with the large 5″ touchscreen display of the iQ.  The iQ is more, however, than merely a remote; the dashboard PC comes equipped with GPS systems, multimedia recognition software(mp3, videos, and games), as well as the ability to use the internet and take your iQ with you outside of your car.

Finally, included is the Monster Muffler which flows up to 201% better than the stock models.  They are designed with a 4″ diameter polished-stainless-steel flow path that has an exclusive expansion chamber that does away with the troublesome middle-range drone.

So what’s stopping you from getting this huge comprehensive package of top-of-the-line products?  With all these separate components coming together to positively change your diesel’s output than you have no other ulterior motives.  Head online at Banks Power Products using the search bar located at the left-hand side of the screen or call at 714-848-2170.

I’d like to dedicate this to anyone who owns a Ford diesel truck. Being a Ford owner you know of all the problems that occur with the Powerstrokes turbo, not to say that Fords aren’t reliable, I’m a Ford man myself but the issue with the turbo can be quite annoying not to mention very costly. This is mainly due to Ford trying to save money with their cost-efficient design. The flywheel tends to “float”, which doesn’t sound all that bad but when at constant spool-up speed, the flywheel can knock into the turbine housing causing some nasty damage that might have you having to replace everything (good thing for warranties). But if you don’t want to deal with these problems any more, Banks has the solution! You can purchase a new Turbo Housing and Flywheel Kit from Banks to counteract these problems.

You may be asking ” why not just get a whole new turbo, like a Garrett Turbo”. Well nothing is saying you can’t do that, granted Garrett makes the turbo on the market right now but the thing is that they are extremely difficult to find. By chance that you do find a shop that you can order one from, your most likely looking to be waiting for it on back-order, and does you know good. Not to mention it’s going to be a few hundred dollars more than if you were to rebuild your stock turbo with a Banks turbo kit.

So the smart thing that you should do is just modify and improve your existing stock turbo with a new Banks turbo housing and flywheel kit. It will be more cost-effective and most of all more convenient for you, because all you need to do is find a diesel shop that does turbo rebuilds, over-all you’re looking to be spending almost a $1,000. Another addition you can do is purchase a Banks Bighead Wastegate, this is more recommended if your going to be adding any aftermarket products that are going to be adding more power to your diesel. And in the way of performance Banks’ turbo kit only performs just below a Garrett but still pretty darn close. One of the Banks turbo kits that they offer are ones for a 1999.5-2003 7.3L Ford Powerstroke Diesel Truck.

If you have any questions about what you can do to improve your turbo or even just about the products that Banks can offer you then give us a call at 714-848-2170. You can also check out Banks Power Products online.
