Banks Sidewinder Jeep Turbo
We have officially started shipping our Banks Sidewinder Jeep turbo systems, so here's a little video showing it
in action along with a testimonial from a guy with first-hand experience
with the system.
Tons of people having been anxiously waiting for this system for a while
now—and we're sorry for the wait—but we didn't want to release anything
that wasn't perfect. And now it is. The turbo system promises rock-crushing torque,
ridiculous acceleration, and heart-pounding power. It offers gains up to
+66hp and +84lb-ft for 2005-06 Wrangler 4.0L.

Tech Talk 3: Superchargers and Turbochargers
It's "Life After Wide Open Throttle" in this third episode from the
Twilight Tech Talk series at the NHRA Museum in Pomona, CA. Watch and learn
about "density machines" and how power output is determined.
Gale talks about the different types of forced induction and the pros and
cons of each, plus he sheds light on the concept of "intake air density"
and how knowing what it is it is more important than knowing what your Boost is. Find out answers to questions
like, what is the fuel requirement at a 12/1 air fuel ratio? And if you
double your Boost pressure do you
double the intake density? Should you go roots or screw? And just what is
the worst Supercharger ever made? Watch
and find out.
This episode is for old school hot rodders, young tuners, and pretty much
anyone who isn't satisfied with stock power levels.
