Talking Fast diesel...

I should email them and tell them that Mercedes has been using aluminum heads for 25 years. As usual Mercedes is about 20 years ahead of everyone else.

Sweet!

Haha, yeah..MB always comes out with things long before everyone else does, yet doesn't boast about it.

I remember when Lexus was going on and on about their "rain sensing wipers", even though the S class had them for like 8 years already.

I always love seeing what banks engineering comes up with...that "Big hoss" system has been around for quite a few years, nothing new. I wonder what they could do with a 617. And 30,000 PSI on the injectors

I love the sound of that thing at idle!

Banks is a genius! Aluminum heads on a passenger car is one thing, on a full-out race engine is another. He has really gone all out on the clean diesel power movement. While I used to love the black smoke, it really does give diesels a bad name to the general, uneducated public and he's shown that it really isn't necessary to get huge amounts of power.

Yeah I remember pissing off a Lexus rep at the NY Auto show saying something like that. He was going on about some neat new feature the LS had and I was like, um my 20 year old Mercedes has it.

Banks is a diesel pioneer, but not the only one! The S-10 is pretty quick and hes doing a rail with a D-max now. As a HUGE D-max fan/owner/racer/advocate, there are a lot of fast duramax's out there! And alot of fast diesels besides d-max powered vehicles! Our esteemed forum owner/racer/inovator holds a LSR record with his street drivin dmax
"Casper" - B/DT Record Holder, Bonneville (166mph) & El Mirage (163mph)
"World's Fastest Production Diesel Pickup - 174.586mph"
Hes goin for 200+ this year! (duramaxdiesels.com)
Now fastest drag diesel is Scheid's Cummins rail running high 6's in the 1/4 mile
Lotta fast trucks on our forum.
I find this intresting, Banks once said this: "Diesels begin to produce visible emissions (smoke) at an air/fuel ratio of 18:1 but the optimum A/F ratio is about 16:1, and smoke is unburned fuel right? That means there is still unburned fuel and air between these levels that we have yet to figure out how to burn, which is more power and efficiancy that we arnt using yet! Now not to take from them but, remove the 3 stages of nitrous oxide there using, that truck would smoke like a freight train too! Now since it has all that oxygination via NO2, it could still burn more fuel! Heck its still a single CP3 pumped truck! Our forum members have proven time and time again, the most power has been made while a haze of smoke is beeing produced! All the baddest sled pullers belch out the coal, and the ones that dont, dont win. My truck will black out the horizon if i want too, but id rather it haze and make more power! Im soon going to install a new S472 Schwitzer turbo in compound with my IHI. The new compound twins will feed enough air for 900-1000HP! Food for thought

I had to throw my .02 in there!

Skippy~ As for perception: Drive what you like and can afford. Those who don't like it can supply vacuum to one of your components. LOL

If you need parts, I have some!
