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 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
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:

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.

Diesel Funny car
This thing will eventually top 200 mph. I think its less than a year old
and they are still perfecting it. Its a Top Fuel funny car chassis and
body with a Cummins diesel engine with turbo AND Nitrous. The RPMs they can turn are just amazing.
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Diesel Performance: 7.77 sec @ 180 mph
7.77 Seconds @ 180.00 MPH -- New NHRDA Record.
The record took place March 7, 2009 at the NHRDA Desert Diesel Nationals at
the SpeedWorld Dragstrip in Wittman, Arizona.
Twin Turbo Ferrari Testarossa on Engine Dyno
Twin turbo Ferrari Testarossa on Engine
Dyno. The motor is a
4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM
and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running
6psi Boost and has no internal
modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and
600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the
car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are
interested check it out there.
