Banks water injection: Supercharged Duramax 871S
Here we're testing our Straight-Shot water-methanol injection system (we're using 100% water at this point) so we removed the scoop to give a view we bet you've never seen before in a Dyno video. This pull was from 1000-5500 rpm with a top blower speed of 16,500 at the top of the pull. We're using the injection system for charge air cooling of the Supercharger. Stay tuned for more noise and more power! In our previous Duramax 871 (8 cylnder, 7.1 liter) dragster engine Dyno video (http://youtu.be/7q7zXmxy-kc) the camera gets blown back by the blow-off valve, and in this run the camera gets sucked towards the Supercharger. We're going to have to strap those babies down better! If you haven't seen this engine run on the track in its twin-turbo form here you go: http://youtu.be/dKc7d73yOSs
