I fulltimed with a 97 Itasca Suncruiser with the 460. The full Banks Kit made a very nice improvement in torque and a small improvement in economy. The factory configuration does not allow the big displacement engine to breathe air in or out efficiently.

Also, I installed an insulating quilt under the doghouse to cut down on engine heat and noise. It was very effective for heat control and helped with the noise a little. It was installed with a spray on aerosol adhesive.

I just had Gibson headers installed on my 96 Bounder with 460. Also removed the resonator & replaced stock muffler & tailpipes with a FloPro HD muffler & 3" tailpipe. Huge improvement in power on the hills hear on eastern MO
