Banks Ram Intake & Boost Tube

Is anyone running this kit? If so was it worth it besides looking cool?

Is there a hot side tube you can get also, i see the entire intercooler kit has the turbo out tube but i cant find it anywhere separate. Thanks

I ran just the hot side pipe on my Spearco for awhile with no real gains or benefits. Swapped back to the stocker when I dropped in the PowerMax.

I run the intake, not much diffrence other than my IAT and maybe a 1 MPG gain if the right foot does not catch skinny pedal syndrome.

I would think that it really wont do anything but look kind of cool (that is a matter of opinion). Unless it is like the CFM elbow which has ports for stuff then the banks elbow is useless IMO.

yup my S&B is tapped. Not tapped very well tho that is for sure. Had a heck of a time finding a port that had actual threads that would thread in my boost gauge. So that sucked. The banks is not tapped? that sucks if it isnt

For 400 bucks you think they could of at least thought of that..... i guess im gonna go with just the elbow, probably with the s&b what thread size did you come up with for your boost gauge?
