Banks Super-Scoop

If you’ve already purchased the Banks Ram-Air Intake System then you’ve already taken a big step forward to improving your engine’s power and fuel economy.  To further your vehicles’ advancement beyond stock models, a great idea would be to invest in a Banks Super-Scoop  (built for the 2007.5-2010 GMC Duramax LMM) add-on to your Banks Intake System.  With the ability to effectively cycle in cooler air into your intake and then through to your engine, the Banks system is far and beyond the other guys’ products.  The stock models filter in warm air since their airflow is restricted by the fender which essentially kills power along with the intake systems poorly designed air filter needing far more maintenance and impeding the airflow to the engine.

With the vastly improved filter that comes with the Ram-Air Intake System combined with the funneling power of the Super-Scoop, your engine is going to be a lot cooler.  The Super-Scoop’s front side installation allows all the air hitting your car to be sucked in while filtering out debris and rain water through holes in the bottom.  And as I’m sure you know, the more air you get into your engine means more oxygen to burn, leading to a more efficient combustion and greater power.  Other pluses to think about when considering adding the Super-Scoop to you Ram-Air Intake System is the more dense and cooler air being filtered through will lower your vehicles exhaust gas temperatures, reduce smoke and provide for a more efficient fuel economy.

The Ram-Air Intake System’s features only become better with the addition of the optional Super-Scoop, such features as a huge bellows, a giant lifetime filter, and a high-flow, low-restriction outlet.  The huge bellows compensates for engine movement by being flexible and safeguards the turbo and engine with a very reliable service lifetime.  The low-restriction outlet is huge and allows all the cold air though increasing your vehicles’ power and mileage.  Lastly the lifetime filter has a very large filter surface area which maximizes high-flow filtration and requires fewer cleanings when compared to others.

To ensure your vehicle gets the mileage and power it deserves through cooler air, be sure to go pick up the Banks Super-Scoop attachment for your Banks Ram-Air Intake System.  The best place to do so would be online at Banks Power Products using the search bar on the left hand side of the screen or to call 714-848-2170.  So get out there and do what’s best for your diesel vehicle!

banks ram air

The Ram-Air is Banks own brand of cold air intake systems and let me tell you, Banks doesn’t mess around when it comes to designing their air intake systems. They produce some of the best aftermarket intake systems, there are very few others that can even come close to comparing to the level of performance that Banks offers. The best part is that their intake systems are available for many different year, make, and model of vehicles, such as Ford, Chevy/GMC, and Dodge just to name a few. So when you’re looking for a fantastic new aftermarket intake system you should go with Banks hands down.

A good example of Banks’ intake system is the Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System for a2008-2010 6.4L Ford Powerstroke Diesel Truck. A lot of what contributes to the success of their intake systems is the design. It is disigned with a large enclosed housing that helps keep hot, underpowered air out and at the same time help draw in more cold, dense air for greater power and fuel economy, and who doesn’t want better mileage? While Banks’ intake system could be doing all these wonderful things for your vehicle, your current stock filter is still under-powering your engine with hot air and causing more damage to your engine. Another important part of this system is the air filter, Banks’ air filter is very large and made of heavy-duty material,  that never needs replacing, except for some occasional cleaning for maximum filtration. Unlike the stock air filters that are small and made of cheap material, not to mention are constantly needing to be changed and this can get expensive. One of the ways that Banks air intake system helps keep hot air out is because of the enclosed housing, where as the stock intake systems open side is facing the inside fender wall where a lot of heat resides. Also Banks are the only ones that put bellows on their intake systems, the bellows help accommodate for engine movement, this will prevent any unwanted component damage from occurring. Not to mention Banks’ intake systems come with a 5 year warranty and a lifetime warranty on the air filter itself, chances are you won’t ever have to use the warranty though.

You might be wondering “why wouldn’t I ever use the warranty?”, you wouldn’t use it because Banks’ products are some of the most reliable products on the market. This is due to the extensive amount of testing that is put into every product. All products start out as CAD software prototypes where they are tested digitally, after that a physical prototype is made and tested on the Flow Bench. After being flow tested it is sent to be dyno tested for any last minute fine tuning and/or adjustments. Finally after the dyno it is time for it’s last and most important test, field testing, this is to make sure that the product won’t just outperform on the shop but in real world applications too, as well as being durable and reliable.
