Default Banks Engine At PRI Show

I was not there to see it, but here is the press release.

Gale Banks Engineering’s return to the Performance Racing Industry Show in Orlando, Florida on December 9-12, 2009 will see a number of very new and exciting ready-to-install, high-performance diesel engines from the company that's recognized as the industry leader in aftermarket diesel technology.

BANKS SEQUENTIAL SUPER-TURBO DIESEL

First on the list is the incredible Banks Sequential Super-Turbo (Marine Version) Diesel. Yes, that's a powerfully efficient sixth generation Eaton TVS supercharger topping off that Twin-Turbo 6.6 Liter GM Duramax-based V-8. It's pretty easy to note that "Boost Guru" Gale Banks has combined the best of both (extra-aspirated) worlds to produce a mind-blowing marine engine. The idea here is to combine the best of the two 'charging (super and turbo) systems for lightning-strike responsiveness and the very broadest possible power band on the water. Here's where great low end supercharging blends perfectly into top end turbo-power all seamlessly controlled by Banks/Bosch electronics. We're looking at 600+ very husky horsepower at only 3800 rpm here, and "over 1,000 (that's horsepower) with the addition of a competition-tuned nitrous oxide system along with upgrades to some key engine components."

It would be cool if it were price competitive with a gas engine

I love the idea of true diesel performance but hope that the fuel savings and life expectancy of diesel motors doesn't get lost here.... that's how I'd justify the cost difference...any idea on these tow issues????

Awesome motor!! I would like to see how they plumbed that charger with the turbos. BUT I've never heard of a nitrous system that could add 400hp. And yes diesels need multispeed transmissions.

Volvo had a diesel (KAMD) with both a turbo and a blower. They were plumbed into a Y that went to the intake. The blower had a clutch on it like an a/c compressor in a car. At about 1800 rpm it would kick in. It was a really noticable difference when it came in. They both fed into a common intake tube. It was pretty cool and worked very well.

Wow id say!

Its most likely to pick up the lag. Anyone know the rpm range?
If its like other deisels that would explain the serious overdrive.
