Banks Ram-Air Intake System

Has anybody tried the new Banks Ram-Air System for the 6.7? It claims to cool intake air, increase mileage and increase power for $359. Any truth to this? Will it void the warranty?

I'm also looking at the banks system.. The AFE is nice, but leaves the element open to dust/dirt/heat. The dealer over here also said having an enclosed filter would be better for warranty claims if ever needed.

I would like to see if the Banks kit actually does anything or not.. I may just have to be the one who tests it on the dyno lol... HMmmm

Banks intakes are ok but the filter is just a KandN and those just blow.

And it will void the warranty. No matter what banks or any other company says anything will void the warranty.

Well first of all, the dealer will not void the warranty because it would be illegal to do so.. If a warranty claim is to be denied, they have the burden of proof that THAT part is what caused the exact failure.

An intake is most likely harmless, especially when you go with an enclosed filter such as the Banks unit. As I said above, the dealer even recommended the Banks unit because of that feature.

We should be able to do DPF back exhaust, air intake, and eventually an intercooler upgrade (when they come out) without much worry about warranty claims being denied.

Are you kidding me? If you or anyone else believes that a dealer can actually void an entire warranty because of a minor modification like an intake, you are a poor mistaken fool.

Grab a law book, you might learn something.

I'm gonna have to side with JsnMR2 on this one. Maybe not the CAT back exhaust but definitely the intake.

Storkerlvr: We're all friends here ease up a bit.

I've had my 08 in a couple times for warranty work with the S&B on. You know what they said? "Hey does that thing give you anymore power? What'd it cost you? Cool."

Tried the AFE on my GMC, ended up switching to the Banks ram air.
Saw no improvement at all, mileage, exhaust temps - nothing.

What I did find out, at least with the 06 GMC, is that the factory air intake was superior to anything in the aftermarket.

I'm hoping it won't be long before the stock intake I still have in the basement is worth more on ebay then the add on types

Thanks,
Duane

Thanks for that feedback. Maybe it's just better to throw a K&N filter in the OEM intake.
