The Goods in Exhaust

Is Banks the way to go for aftermarket exhaust? or just straight 4'' or 5'' from the down pipe back?

There's lots of companies who make as good of exhaust as banks for a lot less money. All exhaust is pretty much the same. Get yourself a 4" turbo back kit (which comes with a new downpipe). You're not going to find too many banks supporters on here. Good stuff but way too pricey. Especially when it comes to programmers or "chips". There is a lot better out there for the money.

What about duel straight pipes, will that be harmful to the motor not to have the backpressure of a muffler? I already took off the cat and it seemed to help my fuel consumtion.

One of my buddys that is all about the cummins was tellin me that banks is the way to go. Has the lowest exhaust temp and gives the most power gain. But he is a rich basterd an he drives a dodge so that should say enoungh right there.

Screw banks you are just paying for a name, as long as the exhaust is mendrel bent its good, go with a straightpipe any of the vendors on here can get you one for a lot less than banks

unless you have twin turbos there is no advantage to having duals, they are just for looks. IMO duals should be left for the gassers.

You could always get a set of 7in aussies

for about 250 to 300 you can buy an exhaust.. they are all pretty much the same. They are farily easy to install yourself also...

Banks if for people that have their parent's money to spend and want a name brand...no offense to anyone that has any of their stuff. Like someone else said, there are a lot of people out there that sell nice kits. I have a 4" Hog Turbo back w/ cat delete and a small muffler and a 5.5" tip. It is all stainless and the downpipe is a FULL 4", not 3.5 like many of the so-called 4" kits. Anyways, I put it on in one night and it sounds awesome. You can hear the turbo whistle pretty loud. Install was a little bit of a pain but I would buy the kit again just to get the sound. I paid $390 out the door at MKO Power - Quality Diesel Products At Competitive Prices. No, I am not affiliated with them at all, fyi.
