Banks high ram pros and cons?

Just bought one for a good deal. I also bought the intercooler tube to match.... if anyone has it, how do you like it... how much pita is it to install? the concept seems to work. i have a alum intake with the plastic factory tube i will be taking off.....

I had one, easy install you have to cut your fan shield a bit but all in all it's easy.. Didn't see much gains but it still looks good under the good and with the intercooler installed I think it would work very well

yea i got the intake off ebay for 80 DEAL... bought the tube from Banks for 120ish and i had the t clamps and silicon boots at work.. should be nice... the concept makes sense... should do a little right? Im not sure about the intercooler tube being plastic.... thought about the alum one from the 03 f250's but i think the banks will be fine

I think the banks would be the best out there. The design just looks more effecient, just wish it had threaded inserts like the other ones

I like the intercooler alot. Its very well built. Ive noticed egt's get very low when in tow/haul. But the only thing that really stunk for me was that I bought the elbow first then about 6 months later I bought the whole intercooler which comes with a new elbow and that first elbow wasent cheap at all.
