Class A Exhaust Systems and Seat Relo

I am new to RVing with a 2008 Winnebago 29R and Ford V-10. Banks and others make a lot of claims about increased performance and mileage for their Stinger system (w/o headers or their Ottomind Programmer). Does anyone have experience with Banks as above or others?
I am 6'4" tall. I need to relo the driver's seat back about 1-1.5 inches. It is a non-power seat made by Winnebago. I do not wish to go to a power seat. Are their kits or something available to just relo seat to the rear?

I would call Winnebago customer service about the relocation.

They say that their seats and seat belts meet the Federal requirements for attachment strength and the mounting is connected down to the frame.
They might be able to tell you how to move it without compromising the attachment strength.

Welcome to the RV lifestyle and the forum. I had an 05 29R for four years and went thru some of the same questions you have relative to the Banks system. The extensive research I did indicated I could definitely improve the power but probably not the mileage with the addition of Banks systems. I found the V-10 to have enough power for my needs in the end and decided against spending the money. I'm surprised you want to move the seat. I am 6'3" myself and felt the factory seat positioning was fine, in fact I usually drove with the seat moved forward anyway. Good luck with your new addition and enjoy !

Is there a slide out behind the seat? I don't think my driver our passenger seat could move back much. As it is if you lean the driver side back it contacts the slide.

Banks and MPG increase, not going to happen. Unless your present pipes are clogged up or smashed shut.
Power increase with headers yes possible, with just pipe changes. See above.
