The Banks Ram-Air Intake System delivers exceptional airflow and air density. Its large lifetime air filter requires fewer cleanings than competitive filters. With its giant outlet, streamlined components and enclosed cold-air box that keeps hot engine air out of the intake, the Ram-Air flows up to 66% better than stock. Improves power and MPG while lowering exhaust gas temperatures. Banks' unique 5 bellows accommodates engine movement, preventing component damage and prolonging service life. Designed to not cause fault or error codes; lifetime warranty on filter element. Unlike our competitors, Banks doesn't just build-and-ship. Our Ram-Airs are triple validated before the name Banks is stamped on. We test; they don't. That's the Banks difference!
Easy to install, about 45 minutes. Removing the AIT was the most troublesome part. Owner's Manual, Section 2, Installation: Most of the photo illustrations are too dark, blacked out in fact. Thank goodness for YouTube. I noticed an immediate difference. Faster acceleration and a great sound. Too early to determine MPG advantage.
My only negative is that you can smell the plastic getting warm for the first few days and my entire engine compartment seems to be warmer, but not reading hot on the gauges, than with the stock intake.
Simple upgrade that works and provides performance highly recommend
it was straight forward installation ,had a little trouble with AIT but figured it out. I like the new souund but I haven't had it long enough to know if it helped performance
more fresh cool air from outside engine compartment is a good thing and no filters to buy every 5000 miles is got to be a major improvement!
very easy installation and has helped fuel economy
Noticed the increase in throttle performance immediately. Felt like the first tank of fuel after installation went quite fast but that could have been me playing with the throttle a bit due to the new sound of sucking air when you got in it. Love it would recommend to a friend
No improvement in gas mileage in my 2007 wrangler for the price I paid but I do notice the response is better
This intake is top quality very nice product. The install was very straight forward and simple. It isnt really loud but gives a nice sound when you get into it. You can definatly feel the increase in power and after a week or so of enjoying the extra power I noticed almost 4-5 mpg gains. I also installed a airaid 1" throttle body space at the same time. The problem was with the spacer on the hood would not shut. I had to cut 1/2"-5/8" off the intake tube where it met the TB and buy a new bigger hose clamp to fit but thats the only problem. It wasnt a hard fix it just would have been nice to have that in the product description. Thanks to Banks for a great product and 4 wheel drive hardware for great service, got the parts in 3 days after orderin. Jeremy 99 TJ
Great intake. Wish there was a precharger wrap for when I go wheeling. The instuctions are awful, but its simple enough to install.
Is the filter for this intake a dry filter or does it have to be oiled?
Asked by Gibby Crew from Santa Clarita, Ca on
Hey Gibby, the Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System is a oil filter system. Thanks for your question.

This seems to be the more popular intake but i was leaning towards a more enclosed protected filter due to concerns of being more vulnerable to hydrolocking my engine in deep water with an open filter. Is this a valid concern for that type of wheeling or would I be no worse off than stock?

Hi Juan tijuana tornado encarnaction if you are going to be wheeling alot in water i would go with a snorkel kit. If you dont go in to much water u will be fine with running the Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Thanks,
