Just got off the phone with bank's power and they are now taking pre orders for their new exhaust for 2005 frontys. The titan guys love them and i hear nothing but good things from other users of their product. It is a little on the expensive side but on par with other all stainless steel exhaust and this exhaust is tailor engineried for the best performance for the fronty. They have not updated their website but if you call they will be able to tell you all about it. The exhaust will ship starting Monday 14nov05.

Ok, I have to apologize, because Banks is not releasing much info on these yet, since I am one of their Top Nissan sales accounts, they let me know before they offical launch,
but it is a Cat Back 3" stainless steel system, with polished muffler and tip..

it is a single in single out system, and sounds similar to the Titan sound, with a bit more raspiness....

I will be happy to post some pictures as soon as they are available, one of our memebers has purchased one already, and I am hoping they chime in, when they receive theirs....

Here is the info direct from Banks:
The Banks Monster exhaust is now available for the 2005 Nissan Frontier 4.0L V6. The 3” stainless steel mandrel-bent exhaust system is designed to be a direct-fit, bolt-on system that flows 104% more than the stock factory exhaust while reducing backpressure by more than 93%. Engineered to use the stock hangers, ground straps and rear balancer, Banks Monster exhaust replaces the crimped 2 1/4- inch stock exhaust with an all-stainless steel system that uses larger diameter pipes, optimizing exhaust flow. As a result, the 2005 Nissan Frontier is able to produce more power with less work, reducing 0-60 MPH times by 0.39 seconds. The Monster Exhaust features a Banks and ultra-low restriction, 3-inch, straight-through, heavy-gauge polished stainless Monster muffler that outflows the stock muffler by 183% while providing the Banks Power sound. It also includes a cool 4-inch polished stainless, rolled-edge, air-cooled tailpipe tip. The entire system is backed with a Lifetime Warranty, and is fully compatible with Nissan's factory warranty.

Includes: Stainless, 3" straight-through polished-stainless Monster muffler; Stainless, 3" constant-diameter Monster Y-pipe and tailpipe; Polished-stainless, 4" rolled-edge, air-cooled tailpipe tip; Owner's Installation Manual

Mine's on order! Just got confirmation from Jerseyparts that the order was submitted to Banks this afternoon! With any luck, I should have it next week!

Brain, thanks again for your outstanding customer service! I also think you have the best price on the net for this system as well! Hard to find a good Stainless Steel performance exhaust for that price! :D

Hi Guys,

With this system is it complete bolt-on, or do we need to do a little bit of welding?

Cheers,

It's my understanding this is a bolt on system. I certainly hope it is because mine is scheduled for delivery this week, and I'll be installing it this weekend!

Between this Banks Exhaust setup and the Gibsons setup, which do you think is better if at all?

Cheers,

Quite honestly, there probably isn't much difference in performance. Both replace the restrictive stock "Y" pipe with a freer flowing design and both have 3" pipes. The biggest difference will be in the construction of the muffler and possibly the sound.

I had a Gibson system on my F-150 and really liked it. It wasn't as loud as the other brands available at the time. I have never heard or used the Banks system before, but the price for a Stainless Steel system was cheaper than the Gibson, so I thought I'd give it a try. My Gibson system was the Aluminized system, but I was living in Georgia at the time and didn't worry about salted roads in the winter. This go-round I wanted Stainless Steel for the durability, and Banks offers a lifetime warranty on their system.

My Banks exhaust should be here this week, and I hope to have it installed this coming weekend. I'll let you know how it goes and my thoughts as to how the sound compares to the Gibson I had on my Ford.
