PICKUP/EXCURSION: Banks Stinger-Plus
utilizes Quick-Turbo to cut out turbo lag and strengthen turbo performance.
Best gains of +91 hp and +162 lb-ft torque deliver more guts when you
need 'em, with 11% better fuel economy as you haul a trailer or big
load. If you like all that pulling-muscle delivered with a kick, Stinger-Plus
is an excellent choice.
Important: Some vehicle configurations require an extension kit
for proper fit—please see application notes below.
Banks Ram-Air® filter
Banks Ram-Air filter is a
lifetime, high-flow air-cleaner element that decreases intake restriction and
sends more cool, dense ram-air into your engine. Even wet or dirty, Banks
Ram-Air filters outperform conventional ones, because the multi-layer design
traps moisture, dust and debris on the oiled, outer surface, allowing air to
move through with ease. Includes a service kit for use every 30-50,000 miles.
Banks' electronic OttoMind engine
calibration module perfects the air-fuel ratio, maintains exhaust gas
temperatures (EGT) safely at or below the stock recommendation, and tunes
low-end torque for strong acceleration and load-pulling capability. Unlike
"fits-all" chips that provide crude fuel increases, OttoMind
precisely matches fuel delivery to Banks' airflow improvements, so your
diesel engine will last its 300,000-400,000-mile lifetime. Each OttoMind is
calibrated to a specific, corresponding Power Stroke engine code.
Banks developed the Quick-Turbo in conjunction with the Holset turbocharger
and Cummins Engine companies, to eliminate sluggishness "out of the
hole" and produce strong acceleration. Quick-Turbo produces massive
torque right from idle, achieves a higher peak faster, maintains more boost
through the powerband, and doesn't over-boost. Banks' exclusive BigHead®
wastegate actuator prevents "wastegate blow-open" by keeping the
valve seated at higher pressures, increasing mid-range torque and top-end
power. Banks corrects boost-level limits in late '99.5-2003 models with a
high-boost compressor wheel, built for higher boost levels without
compromising turbo performance.
Replaces the factory's restrictive muffler with Banks' polished-stainless
steel Monster muffler, featuring a straight-through 4"-diameter
flow-path with Banks' designed expansion chamber, which dissipates the
annoying mid-range exhaust drone so prominent in competitors’
straight-through mufflers. More than doubles stock airflow. Utilizes
spun ceramic, very-high-temperature packing and delivers an authoritative—but
never intrusive—exhaust sound.
Banks Monster exhaust outflows stock and the competition. Banks'
constant-diameter Monster T.O.P. (turbine-outlet pipe) flows better than the
stock piece and preserves diesel durability by keeping the turbine-outlet EGT
safely at or below factory specs. The streamlined exhaust pipe and 4"
tailpipe are formed of stainless, heavy-wall tubing with constant-diameter
bends to slash backpressure up to 81%. Huge 5" polished-stainless
steel tailpipe tip sports a rolled edge. Double-walled design with 1/2"
air gap keeps heat from tarnishing exterior mirror finish. Adjustable clamp
for positioning on tailpipe.
For those with Ford 4R100 automatic transmissions: Banks' electronic
TransCommand transforms 4R100 automatics into super-duty units by continually
corresponding line pressure to power and load levels. Instead of soft,
car-like shift characteristics, TransCommand produces firmer shifts,
especially when hauling large loads. The module senses the load and commands
the transmission to raise the hydraulic pressure accordingly. Light-throttle
shifts are smooth and firm, while full-throttle or heavy-load driving
produces solid, decisive shifts. Excessive clutch slippage is eliminated,
extending transmission life.
Superior precision and durability are hallmarks of Banks DynaFact gauges. The
pyrometer provides exhaust gas temperature (EGT) measurements that are
accurate within 15 degrees F at maximum operating temperatures. Its
spring-loaded jeweled movement is resistant to vibration and sports a lit,
easy-to-read 0-1500 degrees F face. Banks 0-40 psi boost gauge monitors
power and turbo performance. Includes 2-gauge mounting panel. Top-mount and
pillar-mount options available.
1999 Power Stroke variations: Ford trucks for model year
1999 fall into three categories: 1999; early 1999-1/2; late 1999-1/2. It is
important to know the specific model. Check the build date on the tag inside
the driver’s door, then match below:
1999 model year—built prior to 1/99; with
Early 1999-1/2 model year—built prior to 1/99; no
catalytic converter; intake manifold has 2"-diameter inlets
Late 1999-1/2 model year—built on or after 1/99; no
catalytic converter; intake manifold has 3"-diameter inlets
F-350 cab-and-chassis (no bed) trucks: If fuel tank is behind rear axle of
the vehicle, use systems for F-450/550 trucks
Pickups other than standard-cab long-bed or extended-cab short-bed require Exhaust
