they are worth it, but AFE and CFM has them as well which the CFM is probably better, and they have a full large mouth intake setup

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

well i have a banks power elbow with the 4" exhaust that goes with it and as far as egt's go mine didnt change much over the stock setup. but they didnt go up!!! haha. it hink you will be fine going with a regular 4" downpipe and ehaust rather than going through the money and trouble for an elbow, they truly are a pain to install.

BANKS 4" Turbo-Back w/ Power Elbow
Converted from 3/4 to 1TON
Napa 6637 DIY Intake
6.0 Trans. Cooler
Dipricol Gauges
Warn Hubs
TW 6 Pos.

And Some Other Boring Stuff

THANK GOD FOR YOUR BLESSINGS EVERYDAY

And Ill go completely the other way and tell you that spending money on anything wearing a Banks tag is just like throwing money on a bonfire. Sure, it burns well enough, but theres better stuff to use for a bonfire thats way less expensive.

"Blizzard" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a "New" secret blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its not the fastest, but it quite possibly is one of the quickest.

Save your money. I've put a few on varying rigs with mods and seen NO difference at all. They are expensive a PITA to install and you get no benefit from them...at least the 4 I've done have seen no benefit.

ts 6 pos.(custom tunes coming soon)
afe II, mbrp 5", zoodad, ccv mod,
overboost annihilator,
bullydog big woof II w/ high flow outlet,
guages

'02 excursion limited 4x4
4" lift on bfg 35" mt's
afe II, 4" ss exh.

"the dyno-beast" '05 vw jetta tdi
bone stock, (for now)
43+mpg highway
