Product Information

MSRP: $300.00
Average Price: $283.37
Manufacturer: Banks
Recommended?
Yes: 42 / No: 1

Banks' revolutionary Ram-Air Intake System offers the reliability and durability of a factory intake yet delivers astonishing airflow. It flows 62% better than stock and outflows Volant and AIRAID, thanks in part to the Ram-Air's huge filter area (fewer filter cleanings!), giant outlet, and the complete air filter housing with large side & bottom inlets. Banks Ram-Air collects & directs more power-producing cool, dense air to the engine, lowering EGTs and smoke and improving fuel economy, too! The lifetime 8-ply filter traps the most dirt and debris. And Ram-Air is the only aftermarket intake with 4-1/2" bellows to accommodate engine movement. This prevents component damage and promotes reliable service life.
Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Price: $270.00
Pros: Great air flow, distinct improvement to sound, slightly more power perceived at lower RPM
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Definite improvement in sound, slight improvement in torque (seems more towards the lower end). Not impressed with gas mileage improvements. Mileage is no worse, but I can't say I've seen a marked improvement.

Price: $278.99
Pros: Nice tone, easy installation, sleek look
Cons: minimal power gains, occasionally whistles
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Product for: 2008 Wrangler Unlimitied Sahara

I had pretty high expectations on the Banks Power system. It completely delivered. I wasn't expecting a lot of additional power, but what little I feel that I got was nice. The install is easy (took less than an hour for me -- a girl!--to install by myself). The system appears almost stock in the engine bay--it fits in nicely with the rest of the bay. The tone is very nice. Nice growl with throttle, but it quiets down nicely at cruise speeds.

Overall, a nice buy. Highly recommended.

Pros: Easy Install, nice look (under the hood that is)
Cons: none yet...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: To me, this was worth the money. Granted its not a huge increase in HP and some people claim zero increase but for me it did seem to add a bit at the higher rpm's. Plus the sound when you give it full throttle is cool... overall happy with the product and would buy again.

Price: $270.00
Pros: throttle response, better mpgs, easy install, massive air filter and opening
Cons: whistles every now and then
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install took maybe 10-20 mins tops. It has a massive reusable air filter and a huge opening for the air to get into, while the filter cover helps keep heat and dirt and mud out. Helped gain better throttle response and another 1mpg. I love the straight flow rather than the factory setup that has the rubber tube that messes up air flow.

Comments: I chose this product after doing a lot of research. The results are as expected with the larger cone. The quality of this product is nice and the heavy duty plastic matches the original style.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: Sounds cool, whistles sometimes, never noticed any change in power or gas mileage. I guess it really only made my jeep sound a little different. I don't know I could be wrong, but if there was any difference in power and gas mileage it was negligeable.
