Gale Banks Engineering 51306 TorqueTubes® Exhaust Manifold for 00-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ, TJ Unlimited, Grand Cherokee WJ & Cherokee XJ with 4.0L

Catalog #: 17601.500
Gale Banks Engineering Part #: 51306
In response to the high failure rate of stock Jeep® headers, Gale Banks Engineering has designed a bulletproof exhaust header that's built to last, and backs it with a 5 year limited warranty. It's common for a primary tube in original Jeep manifolds to separate at the collector. Banks eliminates the possibility of cracking or separating with superior construction & materials. While other aftermarket suppliers typically use 304 or mild steel with coatings that quickly burn off, Banks builds Torque Tube Headers with rugged, 409 stainless steel. Flanges are welded to stand up to heat, stress and abuse. By increasing exhaust flow, Torque Tubes optimize the torque curve of the popular 4.0L Wrangler engine. Power & efficiency improve, along with the exhaust note. Banks Headers bolt on with ease and are priced very competitively.

Banks TorqueTube is a streamlined exhaust manifold designed to optimize exhaust flow and engine efficiency. Because the stock manifold's flange does not align squarely with the ports, flow is restricted. TorqueTube corrects the problem with a half-inch flange that is machined dead flat, and precisely fitted to the port pattern. You can hear the difference in the plusher, healthier exhaust note.

Unlike the stock, failure-prone exhaust manifold, Banks TorqueTube is built of heavy, 409 stainless steel to weather a lifetime of heat, stress and abuse. The flange, welded to the tube assembly on both sides, will never crack or separate. The gasket is made of SMI 900, a material that stands up to super-hot temperatures.

Bolts right on.
