CFM + VS. BANKS

Hello i have been trying to research and find out what intake manifold system i should buy. Im debating on whether to get the CFM + bigmouth system with hoses and pipes or Banks righ ram system. They both run about the same price. Banks is around $370.00 and CFM + is around $400.00 and has a carbon fiber appearence (looks cool!). This is for a 2003 f250 6.0 with a sct chip, intake and exhaust. But what i truely care about is which system performs betters and is worth while. Any answers or oppinions would be great!

With the 6.0 you really dont need to change the intake until you are outting out 500 RWHP. But if you are set on doing it the banks is a big NO NO. I would take a look at the AFE Stage 2. That is what most guys run and will get u the most bang for your buck.

I think hes talking about the elbow after the intercooler. I think that is one part of the Banks system that I would spend the money for. My

its a bunch of hype and isnt even worth 2 HP on a dyno....ive seen it with my own eyes The only thing the intake elbows are nice for is easy mounting of boost lines and drug nozzles...

+1 on what Marc said... to make him feel good. haha but honestly- I just got the CFM+ bigmouth kit for my rig, it's a sweet piece! The piping to the intercooler will replace the plastic CAC tube I have now so that was one plus for me and secondly, more air is more air. It may be 2hp more on the dyno, but breathing is always a plus and I'm also running water/meth (2 injectors) and a boost line, which all 3 are tapped and ready to go. I'm installing in a few minutes... i'll post pics!

I don't buy into "easy hp" hype very easily. I think the benefit of the intake elbow goes a little farther than 2 hp on the dyno. In the real world a better elbow will help reduce EGT. They are also better for water injection or nitrous. It's not something that I am ready to pony up for, but if you have done everything else already, it's not a bad investment.
