Monster® Exhaust

(1999-2014) Banks' 3" constant-diameter Monster exhaust pipes—formed of heavy-duty stainless steel—bolt behind the catalytic converter to slash backpressure up to 94%, improving 0-60 mph acceleration times by 1/3 of a second (4.5% quicker). The straight-through 3" Monster muffler delivers a throaty, yet civil, exhaust note and more than doubles stock flow (up to a 141% improvement). 6"X5" ob-round (patented design) stainless angle-cut rolled-edge tip in your choice of polished chrome-over stainless or high-temp black (see the system in black). And to help keep it looking good, there's a 1/2" air gap to keep heat from tarnishing the finish. An adjustable clamp lets you position it on the tailpipe just right.

2004 Chevy 5.3L Monster exhaust

2007-11-05

I own a 2004 Chevy silverado with a 5.3 Engine. I had a flowmaster exhaust on it! But wanted something better. So I did some looking and found Banks. And I couldn't be happier! Easy to install and looks great? And for performance wow such a great upgrade It gets up and goes with such ease.

Richard,

Iinstalled exhaust yesterday...sound is perfect...

Received cold air intake today...installed this evening...everything fit perfect...installation in less than 60 min.

I am quite pleased with the results after a test drive..

Clearly when it comes to performance, Banks has all their stuff in one sock.

Thanks for all your time getting the products to me.

“Considering the fact that the fuel economy savings are substantial and the fact that the stainless steel exhaust will last the life of the vehicle, the Banks system is well worth the investment.”
