Get back all the power you lose with the stock intake elbow. Gain a more responsive, power efficient engine. Improves airflow from the intercooler. Raises boost without increasing backpressure at the turbine.
Retains all emissions equipment for 50-State compliance.
Add Banks High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate for 5x the gains!
What it does
Monster-Ram improves airflow from the intercooler. Flows 936 cfm (71.5 lbs/min) Banks High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate compared to Stock's 421 cfm (32.16 lbs/min). Flows 520 cfm (39.72 lbs/min), with the stock heater plate.
Monster-Ram raises boost without increasing backpressure at the turbine. The result is a more responsive, power-efficient engine that offers even more headroom than stock for higher horsepower applications.
Add High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate for max airflow
Although the Monster-Ram dramatically increases airflow using the stock heater plate, upgrading to Banks High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate improves the performance 5x. The High-Flow Heater allows for the removal of the restrictive stock heater grid plate. The new vertical coil-style heater provides the same functionality for cold starts as the stock grid heater but without obstructing airflow. Replacing the restrictive stock grid heater plate with the Banks High-Flow Intake Plate removes all obstructions and turbulence in the airflow path.
How it was designed
Utilizing the latest in CFD (computational fluid-dynamics), tested on the flow bench, the dyno, and on-road, Monster-Ram is a beast that only Banks could have unleashed. A direct-replacement aluminum casting, Monster-Ram is instant power, performance, and acceleration gratification. The factory inlet elbow is cramped and angular in order to accommodate the path of the stock No. 1 fuel line. Banks Engineers designed a new No. 1 fuel line, allowing the Monster-Ram to flow more air without obstruction.
With four 1/8” NPT ports, perfect for temperature and pressure sensors, the sky's the limit for data acquisition and expandability.
Beats the competition
Like all Banks products, the Monster-Ram was tested against all available competitors. It more than doubles the improvement over the closest competitor. Add the Banks High-Flow Heater Plate and it beats the competition by over 10x.

Emissions Compliant: D-161-143
The Monster-Ram Gen 2 improves airflow from the intercooler. It flows 520 CFM on its own, or with the Banks’ High-Flow Heater and Billet Intake Plate it hits a staggering 936 CFM 71.5lbs/min) compared to stock's 421 CFM (32.16 lbs/min). That is a huge 23.5% or 122% improvement over stock respectably!
The proprietary design raises boost without increasing back-pressure at the turbine. The result is a more responsive, power-efficient engine that offers more headroom than stock for higher horsepower applications.
The Monster-Ram uses a new No. 1 fuel line for added clearance, this lets it have a large direct opening and flow more air without obstruction. All this without the need for retuning the ECM, just bolt on and go!
If you have an existing iDash setup, the Monster-Ram has four 1/8 inch NPT ports for expansion options so it's ready for whatever the future brings.
