Banks' exclusive Super-Scoop® is an add-on product to the Ram-Air® Intake System. Super-Scoop connects below the front bumper, forcing a big charge of cool, pressurized ram air into the Ram-Air Intake's air filter housing. Because the air is drawn from outside the engine compartment, it has greater density and makes more power than the warmer engine air.
Super-Scoop’s cooler, denser air also improves fuel economy, reduces smoke and lowers exhaust gas temperatures! Rainwater and debris are funneled out of the bottom.
Customer Michael K. of Murrieta, CA installed the Banks Super-Scoop on his 5.9L Cummins. Installation on the 6.6L Duramax is similar.
Here's the TEST REPORT
for your vehicle!
The more air you can flow through your engine, the more oxygen will be available for burning fuel. That means greater, more efficient combustion, which results in more power. This is where the Banks Ram-Air Intake System with optional Super-Scoop® comes in. The cold air box’s huge bottom opening and optional Super-Scoop inlet are engineered to inhale cooler, denser air from outside the vehicle. Stock systems don’t draw the cooler air from underneath, and many aftermarket “filter on a stick” designs leave the filter wide-open to all the hot underhood air, which robs you of power.

Gale talks with SpeedTV about what went into developing the Ram-Air cold air intake system. (Note: Some components or designs shown may not be available for all applications.)
From the TV show TruckU back in June 2008: Ram more cold air into your engine with Banks Ram-Air intake system. Ram even more with the SuperScoop. (SuperScoop is available for most Duramax and Cummins engines.)
Adding a cold air intake is just about the easiest thing you can do to add performance to your truck, and Banks Power has the best intake you can get. From the TV show Trucks! back in April 2006.
“When I was at his [Gale Banks’] shop, I realized that he’s so immersed in diesel technology he could be Dr. Diesel.”
