Banks stands behind product

Install went relatively smooth for the significant project it is. Power is as advertised. Only issue experienced is the engine stumbled a few times with the chip installed. The nice part with Banks is they stand behind their products and the chip is back to them for their review. In the mean time, mileage is up from about 15 MPG to 18MPG just with the airflow improvements on a hand calculation of mileage. Hopefully the chip comes back without issue and the MPG gain holds.
Good companion to Injen CAI

Much easier to install than the CAI although I would change sequence of tasks slightly when installing lower pipe. I found it easier to install boot to pipe first rather than boot to end tank. In my opinion, makes for less fuss to avoid nicks in your pipe finish. Either way, aligning pipe correctly took me 3 tries (working myself). Had to spin/align clamps in order to have clear tool access to tighten. Now that I have both units in place, we'll see what HP can be gotten. Next step - off to the tuner to get max HP & torque otherwise stuck at stock settings.
