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

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.

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.

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.

I would think a high flow outlet with the ebpv delete would do the same thing for a lot less money.(half the price if I remember right)
