Banks Ram-Air Intake System is a replacement for the factory flat panel filter that has a conical, lifetime filter, providing maximum filtration. The opening dwarfs the factory's inlet and foregoes the 90-degree detours that would normally choke airflow and kill power. The inlet on this air intake system is huge, with enclosed housing and a much larger tubing which vastly reduces restriction and improves airflow to the cylinders. Banks' Ram-Air outflows the stock intake by 73%, improving your Jeep's overall power and fuel economy. It also accommodates engine movement which prevents damage to the components and allows it to have a reliable service life.
