First off let’s start with the Banks Power Big Hoss Intake Manifold System built for the 2001-2009 6.6L GM Duramax LB7, LLY, LBZ, LMM diesel.  Designed as a race-only upgrade due to its requirement of hood modification to fit properly, this system will maximize the performance of your Duramax’s air intake system.  These manifolds are the only ones designed specifically for the Duramax and were tested on Banks’ Duramax Sidewinder S-10 Diesel Drag Truck.  Replacing the stock’s clam shell design with a tuned 16-port manifold assembly that gives the Duramax a boost in the airflow and its distribution, allowing for more available power at any boost level.

Another great Banks product is the Banks Power Billet Torque Converter built for a 2001-2010 6.6L GM Duramax diesel truck equipped with any version of the Allison automatic transmission.  This Torque Converter improves the pulling performance in your vehicle with its cutting edge design and Bank’s patented RaceLock technology.  The RaceLock technology does away with gaps left in other aftermarket designs that are prone to leaks and loosening.  Most aftermarket torque converters have small clutch surfaces leading to wear and tear on the clutch as well an increase in transmission temperatures.  Designed to perfectly match the Duramax’s torque band, this system can give maximum power to the wheels, shedding nearly a second off of the 0-60 MPH acceleration time.

The last Banks Duramax product we’ll describe for you today is the Banks Power Dual Monster Exhaust System built for a 2006-2007 6.6L GM Duramax LLY or LBZ pickup truck with a standard cab long bed configuration.  With a great-sounding, open, and free-flowing design, the Monster Exhaust system never disappoints with it’s performance gains.  Sporting 3 1/2″ stainless-steel tailpipes with heavy-wall tubing and constant-diameter bends formed with mandrel-bending techniques, this exhaust system will give your Duramax a dramatic increase in airflow, a cut in backpressure giving way to cooler operating temperatures, and has an exclusive expansion chamber that will produce a pleasant sound from your system.

Diesel Intake Manifold

If you find yourself looking to improve your vehicle’s internal temperature balance and it’s air intake then you should try out Banks Power TwinRam Intake Manifold made for 1994-1998 5.9L Dodge Cummins.  The product described here was designed specifically for an EGR system equipped engine.  The TwinRam Intake Manifold comes equipped with a doubled inlet area, optimizing the distribution of air to the cylinder head, and flowing the boosted air equally to all six cylinders.  This system of equally proportioned air gets rid of lopsided internal temperatures, as well as balancing the cylinder air volume and producing a smoother output.  This greater amount of air into the chambers boosts your vehicle’s power rating, improves your durability and mileage, and reduces the emissions from your vehicle.

Another system ideal for making certain the air flowing through to your engine is doing so efficiently, would be the Banks Power High-Ram Intake Manifold built for the 2005-2007 6.0L Ford Powerstroke.  If you’ve been relying on your vehicle’s stock intake manifold then it sure isn’t performing at the highest capacity.  The stock design is cramped and angular, restricting the airflow; but thanks to the larger more streamlined High-Ram, your vehicle is going to be getting a greater flow oxygen-rich air into its cylinders.  The High-Ram will help improve your vehicle’s acceleration, its fuel economy, and delivers up to a 64% reduction in pressure loss.
