Default Banks cold air kit

Just did a banks cold air kit on my 2011, dually.
I was getting (if i was lucky) 11-13mpg, just going down the highway. After the kit, i got 12.5 to 14 "pulling a 7x16 trailer with 2 bikes in it" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just went 2800 miles round trip.
Same stretch of highway, with just the truck
is now as low as 14.8 to a high of 17, after talking
to my local dealer, they "will not" screw with my warranty.!!!
For $400.00, i think it is a good investment (diesel is $4.45, in my
area)

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about using the link in my SIG to visit the Newbie Checkin and post a few photos of your truck? I'm glad to hear the positive results from the mod.

Banks builds some nice stuff. They probably spend more time on R&D than most other manufactures. They also advertise alot and I think the R&D time and adversisment is reflected in their prices which are usually a little higher than others. FYI--A friend of mine at a Dodge dealer said they have started to check for "dusting" when people change there air intake system, when they are checking warranty issues.

Dust and dirt that is not filtered out by the after market system that goes into the turbo. He said they were making a big deal out of it at the last Dodge training he went to. If you want more specifics I can talk with him again.
