Learn from the master of diesel performance in this all-new, comprehensive technical guide. For those who follow diesel performance, Gale Banks needs no introduction. He is a pioneer in the diesel and turbo performance arena, and Gale Banks Engineering is a leading manufacturer of high-end and cutting-edge performance parts. Banks has also had his hand in marine performance, up to and including building engines for US military vehicles and navy watercraft; he is a leader in diesel performance, including holding speed run records at Bonneville; and he has set records for fastest quarter-mile times in a diesel pickup truck and has held several records in other categories. Gale is also an engineer and a teacher. He has taught engine design to graduate students at General Motors Institute, covering many subjects, including engine architecture, turbochargers (design and application), fuel systems, exhaust systems, marine turbocharging, ignitions and camshafts, intercooling, and more. In Gale Banks's Diesel Performance, veteran author Steve Temple covers all aspects of Banks's knowledge in performance diesel applications. Included will be a look at defining diesel performance, how diesel differs from other fuels, the importance of airflow, a complete overview of forced induction, data acquisition and testing, minimizing backpressure, traditional performance upgrades, and finally, popular do-it-yourself installs and engine swaps. There is probably no name more well known in diesel performance than Gale Banks, and this book shares with enthusiasts all the knowledge that Banks has accumulated over the years.
