I think Banks is a great company with a lot of good products to offer, but I’ll never buy another exhaust system from them.
These are pictures of the full “Power Pack” 409ss exhaust I’d purchased roughly 3yrs ago for my 1997 F350 7.5 gasser (that I got rid of for my GMC). The truck was very clean overall and I sold it with right about 41k miles. This exhaust system had roughly 2yrs and no more than 10-15k miles on it at most. The truck was kept outside, washed regularly, and did make a few trips from Ohio to Michigan and back for snowmobile trips. I was disappointed right away when I received the kit to see that all the clamps were plain carbon steel; I spent extra money to replace them with 304ss clamps from Summit to mitigate some of the rusting that started. I contacted Banks directly multiple times, but never got anywhere...it was like my request for help & feedback fell off someone’s desk and into the trash.
I still have rust spots on my driveway from the exhaust system on that truck.
Again; not bashing Banks- I think they are a great resource and put a lot of quality into their products...more than most in my opinion. However; if any of their more current exhaust systems mirror the quality of the one I purchased, I’d be very disappointed.
