Banks Power – Investing in Performance Pays Big Dividends for Off-Roaders

By Steve Temple

Gale Banks has become synonymous with high performance. Since the late ‘60s, Banks has been servicing off-road and dune buggy enthusiasts with parts to enhance performance and maximize off-road capabilities. Plus, he is renowned for powering drag trucks, showing great versatility. In fact, in the spring of 2008 he clocked 7.72 seconds at 179.21mph with his diesel-powered Sidewinder Chevy S-10. It’s this kind of power that has singled out Gale Banks as a leader in high-performance engines. Yet what makes them truly stand out is that they simultaneously provide optimal efficiency, making Gale Banks Engineering a master of both speed and practicality.

At a spry 12 years old in ‘50s south central Los Angeles, Banks decided that not having a key to his Mom’s 1931 Model A was hardly a deterrent to making some improvements on it – hot wiring worked just as well as any key. His work on the Model A was soon transferred to a ’41 Chevy, which became the first vehicle to have a Banks-crafted intake. From there, he souped up a ’36 Buick to become a standout racing vehicle. This inspired him to make a business out of his talent, starting with machine work and valve jobs in his very own family garage. Read More…

Exhausts: Truck Parts That Will Make Your Engine Roar

Burning rubber down the road and hearing the engine rumbling along, you feel the true power of your truck. But without the proper truck parts, your truck will never reach its full potential. One of the biggest steps you can take to reaching maximum efficiency and power is by getting a betterexhaust. These truck parts are designed to increase horsepower, produce higher torque, and provide better gas mileage.

So what is it that makes an exhaust so key to the performance of your truck? At its most basic, the purpose of this truck part is to take all of the spent gases away from the engine to make room for the new fuel air mixture. The engine needs this air to operate and if there’s used gas taking up space, there’s going to be less fuel to power the engine. This is actually a rather common problem; generally, these stock truck parts are not large enough to allow for the amount of breathing the truck needs. An upgraded exhaust will have more breathing room, allowing more room for the fresh fuel air mixture, which will ultimately save you gas because your engine will actually have the fuel it needs to operate efficiently.
