By boosting exhaust flow and nearly eliminating backpressure, Banks gives your rig a scary power blast. Plus, the muffler produces an otherworldly growl without the cab drone that haunts lesser kits. And, each kit is topped off with a monstrous, polished stainless steel tip.
All Monster kits are crafted from stainless steel, including the muffler which is polished to a ghoulish gleam. And best yet, your Banks Monster Exhaust System is backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

Great choice for deep agressive sound.. Much better than any other I tried.. I purchased the 3in mbrp and took it off after the test drive and bought this one which I had on a previous truck.. Much better choice with the banks.

Looks great, makes my jeep sound really throaty, everyone asks me what I put on it to make it sound that good, and it was a pretty easy install, it was harder to take the stock muffler out than it was to put this one in

Really easy to install...took about 2 hrs. I'm really happy with this exhaust. The only complaint that I have is that it's not quite as loud as I was hoping. It does growl, but I was hoping for more based on the reviews I read. All in all I'm very happy with this purchase.

Installation was easy, the hardest part is removing the old system. I've noticed a 2 mpg. Gain in fuel economy, a quicker throttle response, & a large gain in low to mid range torque. The only part of the system I didn't like is the clamps that came with it. I replaced them with high quality S.S. band clamps.

I have a 06 silver ado 2500HD 6.6l diesel, I would like to increase performance, gas mileage. Without getting loud. Any suggestions?

Hi, Any performance exhaust system will make your truck louder than if you were to stick with the factory system, it's just the nature of the beast. A good way to look at is: can you trade a quiet exhaust for something that provides a boost in power and fuel economy but is a bit louder? If it were possible for a quiet, high-flow system to exist, Chevy would have done it from the factory and used it as a selling point.flag Accept Answer

I have a 2011 durmax I want to go with a more free flowing exhaust in hope of gaining a few miles to the gallon. Does this occur and do I need a computer chip or anything else with this system? Steve

We have a 350 Ford. The noise at certain RPM compares to a tuba blasting in each ear. On a long journey, it is extremely annoying. Is there any way to get rid of the vibration.
Answered by Nathan S. — Jul 30, 2012 12:19 PM
Hi Pat, It sounds like you have an issue with resonance building up in the exhaust system. At certain RPM's an earsplitting drone can be heard. Many performance exhaust kits can have this issue because more attention has been paid to increasing exhaust flow than to preventing drone. I would recommend replacing the muffler with a Flowmaster Big Block series unit of the same dimension. Aftermarket mufflers slip over standard exhaust tubing sizes and will most likely be a direct fit to your existing kit either by welding or clamping in place and the noise cancellation baffles in the Big Block Flowmaster muffler should eliminate the drone issue.flag Accept Answer

Is there a difference in length between the long bed and short bed access cab exhaust? I have this kit that came from an access cab short bed, and I have an access cab long bed and am wondering if it will work?

I would measure the exhaust hanger positions. These kits are usually model specific and may have different bends for clearancing too.flag Accept Answer
