Check us out!! Exhaust Kits

Our most popular one is the Budget kit. We also do carry the cfm+ intake elbows. Shoot me a PM and we can work out a bundle deal for you!!

The intake elbows look nice but other than that they are a waste of money. Zero performance difference and won't affect your EGT's. Spend your money somewhere else.

A lot of people say that but there is a interesting article in this months diesel power mag or maybe it was diesel world about the banks high ram and it did show improvements on the dyno running stock and tuned, it was on a dodge but its the same concept... I don't think adding one would hurt, just my opinion although it wouldn't be first on my list it may not do a lot but every little bit counts.

Are you sure it was an article and not a Banks Advertisment? Banks usually does a 2 or 3 page spread (ad) on their stuff and makes them appear to be a legit article written from the publisher. Just making sure...

You should also start a signature so we know what you drive, how you use it, and parts

I have a CFM+ Largemouth with the bigger tube from the intercooler. They've been on the truck for about 25k miles. Trust me there is no preformance gain to be had here. The bottleneck is the intake manifold and intake runners in the heads. No matter how big an elbow you put on you are not going to flow any better than they will allow you. That money is better spent on something that will give you an actual benefit.

No it was an article, the work was performed and tested by beans diesel performance...I know the difference between an article and the banks propaganda.
