Any insight on Banks Air Ram Intake System??

So, I'm getting ready to put a new cold air intake on the truck and started doing alittle bit of research. I've come accross Bank's new Air Ram Intake set up (p/n 42210, below is a link) Everything that I've been reading claims to be the best out there becuase it is enclosed keeping the hot engine air from being sucked in (or atleast a lot of it) and also using a forced air design. I'm just looking to see if anyone has any input on this product or should I just move on to another company?

Thanks

They look nice, but I have a hard time seeing spending like $450 (or close to that) for one.

Banks

/sigh not this again.

If you like it and feel it is worth the ~$400 then get it.

I would go with an S&B setup instead. Still fully enclosed, excellent flow/filtration numbers, and over $100 cheaper.

Not to thread jack but with a turbo motor is the cold air claim really any benefit? The air will be warmed by the turbo so what is the benefit if any to a cold air setup.

I agree with you FuturePharmD. I think there is no benefit for that cold air set up.
