Air Intake?

Hello All,

I have 2005 F250 Turbo Diesel with the Banks Monster Exhaust and I was wondering if anyone on here has the Banks Ram Air Intake, and if so is it a worth while purchase?

Thanks!

I have it on mine. Fit and finish is great and I have been very happy with it.

However, unless your running a tuner, your wasting your money adding any intake system. The stock intake system flows more then enough air to support a stock truck. Adding an after market intake would give you no benefits. If you plan on adding a tuner later, then that's another story. But until then, you won't get any added benefits with a aftermarket intake.
