Banks High Ram Is it worth it?

Thinking of adding the banks high ram to my 06 F250 SD. Is it worth the money? Is there something better?


Thanks,
Wil

It depends on what you expect it to do.

It will give you more available power, but only when your foot is on the floor or close to it. How often have you felt the need for more power?

Fuel economy.... it will help a little if you're towing a pretty darn heavy load. If you're unloaded, it most likely won't make any difference at all. All their published results are for very heavily loaded trucks. I've asked them directly, "What will it do for mileage when you're driving around normally with no load?" They hem and haw and say, ".... possible increase...." but no guarantee.

Thanks for the info. Im not pulling or towing so i guess no need to change. Just looking for a little more performance. I also was looking at the accufab elbow but again truck is just for fun.

Thanks,
Wil

On a totally stock truck you won't notice a bit of difference. Save your money for a good exhaust and some real gauges.

Banks High Ram

Well I do have a K&N Intake, Banks Monster exhaust and the Bully Dog PMT. Where else would $400.00 be more useful?

Thanks,
Wil

Snow Performance's Water Meth kit... more power, better fuel economy and lower EGT's.

FWIW my Brother In Law put the Banks High Ram on his Cummins..made a world of difference. It's a whole different truck, even empty.
