Banks ram air STAY AWAY!!!!!!!

I just wanted to say anyone who is running one to check your intake tract. Mine has dirt and the wheel looks sandblasted, they use a kn filter also I found out. Stay away from this setup don't buy it. I am trying to get money back but they are questioning the fact of y this happened hmm maybe because of the filter I wonder. These filters are brand new Pre oiled and they suck dust through. If anyone has comments or questions fire away. I'm looking to do the tymar instead. Figure I would help some people out.

if you had done your HW, you wouldn't have bought anything from Banks



6637 is just fine... its just the "cheap" version of a Tymar.

Question if I got one of these intakes can I change the filter element to a s&b or afe and keep the ram air intake itself?

They offer a 5 year warranty too guess they don't honor that either screw banks power. Use a k&n filter and slap their name on it.
