Ram-Air Makes Duramax Owner Smile

“Everything else in the truck is bone stock,” explains William Winter of his 2021 Duramax.” The Ram-Air intake system got to me fast, taking about a week with free shipping. First off, the instructions were spot-on. I highly recommend reading them, as they came in very useful and point out some oddities that you may encounter, which I did and never would have thought of otherwise.”

“Installation was pretty straightforward,” recalls William. “It took me about an hour with a 5-year-old trying to “help” me. The truck also has a more aggressive, but subtle, diesel sound when accelerating, and you can hear the turbo a little more, especially with the windows down. Cruising down the highway or cruising in general, it’s quiet. At least inside the cab with the windows closed.”

“Performance? Holy cow, big improvement! I was skeptical at first about how much this would improve acceleration and so on before buying this kit. But I’m impressed. Throttle response is much better now at low speeds, and even on the highway. It definitely throws you back in your seat more, no matter how you slice it. You can feel the difference. “I’m glad I pulled the trigger and bought one. Now I’m curious about other upgrades from Banks.”
