Seen one of these in a mag ad, looked like box, tube, and lid with a tube on top going somewhere. Does anyone have any knowledge about it?

About a year back or so, I was down there at BANKS and talked to them. They informed me that they were not going to get into the whole "air intake" thing cuz everyone and their mother is making one. Also, they informed my that they test all their systems with the stock box but use a K&N drop in filter replacement.

Get some pics up when you can.

just recieved it and installed today, but I have not driven the truck yet.
Seems really well fit and high quality and the air filter is huge.

So where does it pull air from? Is this true Ram air?

I ran across this last night on the Banks web site - looks like a good system. Hope it works well for you. I think most of these after-market kits are an improvement over the stock system. Let us know your thoughts on it after a few miles.

Nope,not at all...wish sumone would chime in,i was lookin a few minutes ago at the terrible job GM did on the supply air for the airbox-:t its not getting any real outside air at all.....kinda makes the volant idea of the bottom snorkel look like a not too bad of an idea.I think modification is definately needed.

Over hyped & probably pricey like anything else from them, stick with the stock intake.
I suppose now you'll say that their claim of +39hp and +69lb-ft is over hyped also? Of course, I'll have to buy one to complete my Banks truck. Let's see, +155hp (Six-Gun w/Speedloader), +18hp (Monster exhaust) and +39hp (Ram Air intake) should put me at 512hp. Now to be serious, it does like like a nice system, and I'll probably swap out my Volant intake for this come this spring.:cool:

Jeeper, what kind of difference does it make? Louder? Power?
