Hey again guys and gals. I’m getting some questions as to how the stock intake manifold compares to the Banks Big Hoss manifold. I could go on and on about the details but I figured that a picture is worth a thousand words so here’s the comparison (if you can really call it that). I do need to point out here that these are for hardcore engine builds ONLY. This is for you guys wanting 1000hp+ without having to run 100psi of boost. This isn’t something you can bolt on in an hour for your daily driver. These parts are straight off our drag race/road race trucks. Caution: LOTS OF PICTURES!
If your goal is to pull more weight more efficiently, and you are looking for more power and fuel efficiency in the process, where do you start?
Your information has been most helpful. A couple of more questions.
1. How does Ford treat the “Six-Gun and Speed-Loader” re warranty issues?
2. Are any of the 6 settings optimized for Towing and or Economy? If not, which one’s would be best for those applications?
3. Since I think you are getting more power by increasing the fuel, how are you getting better mileage at the same time?
