PowerPack® System

'99-04 6.8L SUPER-DUTY PICKUP: Banks has the formula for building V-10 muscle: the stainless-steel PowerPack adds best gains of +56 hp, +67 lb-ft torque, and 7% more miles to the tank-full. A pair of bulletproof TorqueTube manifolds uncorks major torque for big hauling and climbing jobs. Banks optional electronic AutoMind engine-calibration module maximizes power while keeping a stern check on the air-to-fuel ratio, for safe exhaust temperatures and engine longevity.

A look at the stock Y-pipe clearly shows the Banks advantage:

Vehicle is EGR-equipped ('99 models only) if there is a large hex fitting connecting steel tube to exhaust manifold on driver's side.

To identify type of catalytic converter, locate flange between Y-pipe and cat converter:

Early style cat converter--flange behind transmission cross-member
Late style cat converter--flange in front of transmission cross-member

Systems do not fit 2005 (3-valve) vehicles--designated by a "V" in the 8th position of the VIN number.


Banks Power PicklePowerPickle®
Banks invented a ballistic flow device to overcome the problem that occurs where tubes join within a single collector; a "dead zone" that kills exhaust-gas velocity. The patented PowerPickle fills that void and utilizes the rotational firing order to maximize exhaust extraction. This detail-exclusive to Banks-captures exhaust-gas action and turns it into massive torque.
