5" aluminized steel constant-diameter DPF-back exhaust system with patented negative-backpressure SideKick tip. Improves throttle response and fuel economy by lowering backpressure up to 9% at the turbine inlet. Allows the engine to exhale and breathe more efficiently. Includes huge chrome or Cerakote Black obround SideKick tip.
The factory RAM exhaust uses several different sizes of pipe that are MIG welded together. This mismatch of pipe sizing and abrupt bends adds resistance to the exhaust system. By comparison, the Banks 5in Monster-Exhaust system is mandrel bent with a smooth constant inner diameter. Exhaust gas scavenging is maintained from tip through the DPF outlet.
Banks patented negative back-pressure tip virtually eliminates back-pressure after the DPF. With a side-draft rocket nozzle-like tip, exhaust gasses are literally sucked out of the end of the exhaust. With pressure sensors installed, this negative exhaust pressure resulted in an impressive 9% reduction all the way back to the turbine inlet.
Dual-Rear-Wheel trucks are just a little different. Banks engineering teams noticed this while developing the DRW variant of the Monster Exhaust. A reworked tube shape for proper clearance and fitment was needed given the monstrous 5" tube diameter and bends needed to clear rear suspension components and fender extensions. The patented obround Side-Kick tip is designed to eject hot exhaust gases out to the side and away from the vehicle. With a 1" Air Gap around the tip, your exhaust won't damage or melt your bumper or trailer while still looking great even from far away.
