Monster® Exhaust

Physical fitment.

Why consider a cheap, ill-fitting aluminized exhaust? Banks 4” Monster Exhaust is made of rugged, long-lasting 100% stainless steel. It fits better than the competition, because Monster Exhaust utilizes the factory hangers and maintains proper clearance to all under-vehicle components.

All flow, show and go!

With nearly five decades of engineering airflow improvements, Banks has mastered the art of maximizing flow while minimizing backpressure. The polished straight-through Monster Muffler, mandrel-bent head pipe assembly (non-cat-converter-equipped vehicles only), intermediate pipe(s) and tailpipe nearly triple the exhaust flow, cut backpressure up to 98%, lower exhaust gas temps and deliver more power to the ground. And the 5” polished rolled-edge tip has an adjustable clamp for positioning on tailpipe. Get it in your choice of chrome-over stainless or high temp black!

Engineered to ditch the drone.

Many straight-through mufflers deliver an obnoxious drone that overpowers conversations. Banks Monster Muffler is extensively sound-tested and engineered with a unique expansion chamber and high-temperature packing. Instead of a drone, you’re treated to a rich exhaust note that’s authoritative, yet civil. It sounds as great as it looks!


Pick your look! Dual exit Monster Exhaust systems include Banks' exclusive 6" X 5" ob-round (patented design) angle-cut rolled-edge tailpipe tips while single exit systems sport a 5" round tip—and then you get a choice of polished chrome-over stainless or high-temp black finish. (For black tip system add "—B" to part number.) See the dual exhaust page here »

LB7 tuner & exhaust: Way More Fun Than Any Muscle Car I’ve Owned...

2005-04-15

I pull a 12,000 pound construction trailer with my GMC 6.6 D/A 2500HD. I have installed the Six-Gun, Speed-Loader, and [Monster] Exhaust. WOW!! I recently towed 2,200 miles from Florida to Indiana and back. Mileage is way up. Exhaust temp is way down and the torque is Unbelievable. Without the trailer and just with a little spool up on the brakes at a red light, this thing will smoke just about any production street car. This is way more fun that any muscle car I have ever owned over the last 35 years. Thanks for your great products.

LB7 tuner & exhaust: Even the Other “Chipped” Diesels Could Not Keep Up!

2005-02-07

I bought my new K2500 Crew Cab because I had just out-grown my old 1/2 ton. My business had expanded so much that my old truck was getting tired. I have always been a GM man and was getting so tired of the "Power choke" and "Wait, I'm Cummins" boys bash the DuraMax. I started to look at diesel "hop-up" products. I went with Banks because you are known for your milestone diesel enhancements with over all concern for safety and dependability. After the install I was shocked with the results that were achieved. I went out to show off my new toys, and found that even the other "chipped" diesels could not keep up! I wear my Banks stickers with pride because all the other guys are spending more money on other companies’ products trying to catch me (us). I wish they would only listen and call BANKS!

LB7 Ram-Air & Monster Exhaust: I was shocked...

2010-08-12

Hi Frank, I just wanted to let you know how very pleased I am with your help and Banks' products. I've been very busy, working long hours but I wanted to hold still long enough to say Thanks. I was a little uneasy about hooking up this equipment on my own but, the way Banks packaged everything was a pleasant surprise. Frank, I was shocked when I finished installation of Ram Air System & Monster Exhaust I thought to myself, This wasn't painful at all! The way the exhaust pins slid into Chevy hangers was a breeze! I'm saving all over again now so I can get some more of Banks' goodies! Best Regards and thanks again. One more note: I was told delivery would be 6 to 10 days. Well, I got my equip delivered to my house in 5!!!!! BANKS IS BEST

LB7 Exhaust Brake, Ram-Air and Monster Exhaust: Noticed some very positive things...

2010-08-12

Hey Frank! I just wanted to give A SHOUT OUT! to my favorite Banks guy, and let you know, that I am very happy with my Banks equipment. I got it installed yesterday and noticed some very positive things, such as more power, cooler temp, great sound, and tremendous performance, from the brake. I also want to recommend Rocky's Tuff Trucks, 345 E. Broadway, Gallitin, Tenn, for his great and professional installation of your equipment. He will make a great installer for your product. Please include him on your list of very qualified companies, that do a great job. I look forward to a long term relationship with both Banks, and Rocky's Tuff Truck. Thanks for both of you guys help.

Frank, I just wanted you to know that once again, I received my order in great time and packaged very well! Your S&R Dept do very good work and I commend them for this.

I know you must speak to a lot of people every work day and you may not remember but, I told you in the past that I wasn't very mechanically inclined but I do like to change my own oil and easy tasks like that.

Well, the instructions that came with all my parts were so well detailed that after reading over all of this, I thought to myself: I think I can do this!
I gathered all my tools and began. I'm so excited I can't hardly believe it! I've got it all hooked up! YES!!!!
I received it all on a Friday ( Good shipping to S. Louisiana in 5 days! Pretty cool.
Saturday morning I began. Now you've got to realize, I'm kinda slow, not too sure of myself, had to go back over papers and read carefully,
trying to prevent any mistakes. You know the drill, pulled right front wheel, drilled & tapped exhaust manifold for EGT probe.
Went to work on Big-Head Actuator. Wrapped that up and tackled Six Gun Tuner. Feeling pretty good, Frank!
Once I got the IQ mounted and wired, I thought, well, I'm going to re-attach battery cables, say a prayer & awaken the beast!

I might be sleeping in the shed but, I'm a happy camper!

Thank you!

A satisfied customer and your pal
