Banks Cold Air Kit

Has anyone bought the Banks cold air kit for the 7.3 Diesel, I have a 03.

I saw it on Banks website and was wondering if it is as good as Banks claims.

Thought someone here might have it on there trucks. Thanks

I have it on my 08 6.4. Works great for mine. Good tight seal. Don't know about your application though.

Not unless you are planning to add a programmer.

Planning on doing a cold air kit and the Banks Monster Exhaust first.

Do I need to put a programmer on with these mods to make them worth it?

Recently, Testand Corporation conducted an ISO standards test on automotive air filters which can be viewed at this link: http://www.dieselbombers.com/chevrol...r-testing.html. All I can say is this explains in detail the reason for

A filter, is a filter no matter what engine it is on....the difference is and what the test is pointing out, is the false, misleading information the aftermarket puts out about their "after-market filters & performance gains".

Let's take something very, very simple, the 5.4 gas engine. The 5.4 V8 for example if close to stock can only suck in a maximum of 480 cfm (a little thing called physics) and a flat panel filter will flow 500 cfm, there is simply no way any CAI on a relatively stock engine can increase the air flow into the engine, sure their filters may flow up to 900 cfm...so what- the engine simply will not inhale any more than that without forced induction or cam/valve changes (substantial).
