Waiting Would Have Killed His RAM

“Just do it before the stock grid heater fails,” is the warning Chris would like to share with fellow RAM owners. During the installation of his Banks Monster-Ram intake system, he discovered he’d just dodged a bullet. I’ve been a mechanic for 25 years, so the installation was straightforward. Really, with the videos and the detailed instructions, a novice with the tools could do the installation. There wasn’t a single problem with anything fitting on this kit, and all the hardware and parts needed were in the box.”

“I haven’t had a lot of time behind the wheel yet, but from shop to home, it felt like the throttle response improved quite a bit. And really how could it not? Looking at the Monster-Ram compared to stock you can see the massive restrictions the factory part has.”

“But to be honest, I didn’t install the Monster-Ram for performance gains. I did it mainly as a preventative measure to upgrade my completely stock 2017 RAM with 99,000 miles on it. I’m glad that I did because I found when I removed my original grid heater, it was starting to show signs of the now-classic bolt failure. The nut actually looks partially melted,” Chis said with a sigh of relief. “I’m so happy I decided to do it now and didn’t wait. That would have been a very expensive hesitation.”
