TorqueTube™ Exhaust Manifold System by Banks®. Cast OEM exhaust manifolds just are too restrictive. Replacing them with Banks Torque Tubes will substantially reduce the backpressure where it counts, right at the exhaust ports. Instead of relying on the pressure of the exhaust gases forcing their way along the passages, these headers rely on a different principle altogether. They use one exhaust pulse hitting the collector to pull the next pulse along with it. This can dramatically improve cylinder scavenging, giving you improved power and torque. At the same time, the reduced load on the engine improves economy.

Banks' heavy-wall 400-series stainless TorqueTubes include two full exhaust manifold assemblies, each with a seamless high-velocity collector. Unlike the restrictive stock setup, Banks TorqueTubes literally "pull" out the exhaust, unleashing greater torque and helping the intake stroke to draw in more air. Includes all required hardware. This shorty style header is designed to fit perfectly, unless you have modified the vehicle in some way.
Banks uses a substantially thicker 5/8” flange for the manifold-to-cylinder head flanges than other header manufacturers. The pipes are welded on both sides of the flange for durability, and then the flange is machined for flatness. This absolutely true surface fits up against the head surface so precisely that there’s no gasket! That eliminates a major cause of header failure from exhaust leaks, and even makes installation a breeze; no more juggling the header, the gaskets and the fasteners in only two hands.376.93 1,047.00

The system arrived 4 days prior to the estimated shipping date. The packing was designed to protect from damage and all parts were in perfect condition. The installation instructions were clear and concise allowing for an easy installation, I am not a mechanic and installed this system myself. The system looks good and sounds awesome, but more importantly, my truck is more responsive and very smooth on acceleration. Well worth the price.Was this review helpful for you?

Had this installed on a 2013 Durmax Diesel, and this cleaned up the back end giving the truck a nice finished look. Too early to tell how this will affect performance over all, but I had a similar system on my other GMC and it was great. Just need to get the cold air intake installed.Was this review helpful for you?

This product was very easy to install. I was fortunate to have a hoist at my disposal, and the pipe sections easily slid into place for connection to the hanger straps. The pipes seem to be of very good quality stainless steel - we'll see after a few Canadian winters. I've only had the exhaust on for one week, so I'm not sure of any improvement in gas mileage. However, I can certainly say the sound brings a grin to my face. All of my friends who have heard it approve. It's not noisy, but gives a deep throaty roar upon acceleration. When idling or cruising, you can barely notice a difference over stock. This is how all aftermarket exhausts should sound. It may be my imagination, but I think I have a bit better acceleration, too. I didn't give the exhaust five stars because I want to see what it looks like in two years. Hopefully, I can edit my entry at that time and give five stars.Was this review helpful for you?

Great product! Looks Super and Sound Great. Neighbours are breaking their necks as I pass by the home. Only issue I had was with getting the product as promise. I was told that the item was in stock and ready to be shipped. One week later no exhaust. Two weeks later item finally arrived. Not a happy camper. Everyone else that I spoke with was up front and said that they didn't have the exhaust in stock. Would have been great if they would have been up front with me. Missed a car show because of the missing Banks Monster Exhaust.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY
