engines and kits are available to the public, and here on horsepowerTV, Gale covers
the turbo basics, plus how he creates

block or a comparable Dart small block engine with an aftermarket EFI fuel
and ignition system. Give us a call at 800-396-9223, tell us what you're
looking to do with your engine project, and we'll tell you exactly what you

Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.

Banks Top Diesel Dragster: NHRDA Nationals
On March 6th, 2010 the Banks crew tested out the rail's new "Stroker" 427
cu. in., twin-turbo 7.0L Duramax engine
at the NHRDA Nationals in Wittmann, Arizona. The numbers for this trip out
were 7.670 @173.54. We were a little faster back in April 2009 when we ran 7.17 @
181.08. We've also run a best trap speed of 190MPH with the car on a
separate test session. All those runs were with our twin-turbo'd Duramax, and now we're getting set to hit
the track with a supercharged configuration. Stay tuned for that! More info
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.
Do you think you know your off-roading areas? Pay special attention to the
maps at the end and see if you can identify all eight notable locations.
Call and ask us about it, and see what else we have for your vehicle too.
