great product

Very easy to install, maybe took 30 minutes by myself. I notice an increase in power right away.

Amazing Intake System!

I noticed an immediate difference in the throttle response and the power gains. The only question I had; "Why didn't I do this sooner?". I also added a PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer. The new Banks Intake allows so much more air to enter, it is amazing. Do not wait any longer to buy one of these! Installation was easy too.

Easy to install, instructions were easy to understand, didn't need many tools to install, all in all great product. Performance:Just a little improvement by driving the Jeep and listening to the Jeep. Maybe if I had a way to test the Jeep on a computer I could tell ya numbers! Feels/Sounds way different then the "bad" factory air intake!

Very good

This CAI system was defiantly worth the money. One of the better products on the market.

Great product for the money

06 LJ Unlimited Rubi. Haven't had time to get actual mileage, but my wife says she loves the sound when she gets into it, can't go wrong there?

I would buy again for sure!

Super easy to install! I'm not mechanically inclined at all and I installed the Banks RamAir Intake in 45min. I definitely noticed a power increase and throttle response. I'm still testing gain in MPG. Also installed Banks Monster Exhaust and an Airaid PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer. I think the combination of all 3 is perfect to gain power, MPG, torque, throttle response and a great sound!

Best price and performance .

Great System!

This system was extremely easy to install. I installed this with the Banks Monster Exhaust. I went from 12.1 mpg to 14.6 mpg on an '06 Wrangler Unlimited with 35" tires. I can't feel much improvement to HP on the top end but low end response is greatly improved.

Does the jeep (TJ Sport 4.0 L) get a deeper or throaty sound with this intake system? And do does it get more mpg? Thanks

Asked by IvanV from on

Hello Ivan, the Banks Power Ram Air Intake System part# GBE41816 will give you a deeper intake sound as well as more mpg. The open element intake kits will give you an even deeper sound. Thank you for your inquiry.

Answered by mikey from on

I have an 04 Rubicon So some of you noticed some HP improvement. "Banks" sez 39% increase in HP with 60 Ft/Lbs of torque That would be 285 HP with over 300Ft/Lbs of torque? So why put a Chevy V8 LS-1 in when you can get almost 300 hp with a Banks air system??? Sounds like K&N is more honest with numbers.... Question? Do you really get 39% HP with 60 ft/lbs of torque?

Asked by Had a YJ .. it was great... Now got Rubi from Granada Hills CA on

YJBriman- Thanks for asking. The Banks Power Ram Air Intake System will gain a decent amount of power and torque for your 2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with the 4.0L but how much will depend on the condition of your Jeep and any other modifications you have made.
