Yes, we have our new Derringer and exhaust systems available. We are also developing an intake system for them as well. Check it out:www.bankspower.com/ford67

You can add on different external parts but nothing has truly changed on the inside.

Got it. Don’t modify the engine or you’ll fuck it up and break the bank fixing it. Get rid of all exhaust stuff and you almost have the most perfect engine/transmission combo around.

Find a good way to limit the EGR function Mr Banks, it just kills efficiency and durability. I'm all for a cleaner exhaust through DPF but the detriment of EGR can not be denied.

Almost makes me want to convert from gas. I would definitely have to get a yacht just to tow around town if I did that though. Unless I'm towing something just about all day, every day, don't think I'll ever go with diesel less the epa reverts all the BS emissions crap with def and all that mumbo jumbo.

Despite what most people think, Isuzu Motors Ltd. has very little to no design input on the Duramax engines. They co-own a small portion of the D-Max company (the Duramax engine manufacturer) with General Motors, but it's now considered a past venture according to them from design to engineering. The Duramax engines are built right here at home in Dayton, OH. Check it out: www.dmaxengines.com/

Just wish your Banks stuff was affordable... Because when your on SSD (Social Security Disability) you can't afford all the way over priced stuff... And most of the time it's not worth the price... Especially when your just trying to get better MPG... Banks should offer 80% off or better for Handicapped people on SSD as well as Vets!! Then we might be able to put the stuff on to get better MPG, but paying Thousands to gain 1 or 2 MPG we would never get our money back...Make your money off the kids that just want to boost HP and the working class that wants to tow campers better and such... But when you only get $1,500 a month on SSD, spending $6,000. or more just to get a few MPG, just isn't possible for us.... Help us!!

Thanks for weighing in. We appreciate your comments. A couple thoughts. Our parts are as or more affordable than other manufacturer's offerings because we offer more features, benefits, and quality for the same or less money. If you stack us up against any of the popular brands, you'll see we're relatively the same price, yet with more features. That, in turn, makes Banks a better value. Take the Derringer tuner for example. It's priced lower than the competition and yet it's the only tuner available that connects via OBD-II and has safety features built in. Regarding MPG gain, although we do make a few products that are designed to help increase MPG, it's a much smaller focus. Banks is focused on making more power and fuel economy is often secondary. Finally, our performance parts are not necessary. We have far too much money invested in R&D. Giving away product at half off or greater would prevent us from recouping our R&D dollars, thereby stifling new product development. Bottom line, we love our vets and we aid them in many ways behind the scenes, supporting charitable organizations and much more. And, of course, we do everything we can for those who are disabled. But discounting products is generally not something we do. We find there are better ways to positively impact the lives of those in need. Thanks for reading and supporting Banks!

EXCELLENT Video Mr. Banks!!! QUESTION: How much of the 2020 L5P "Table parts" can simply be bolted onto the early version L5P's? It seems, depending on spacing, that at least the oil cooler could be if not the fan drive setup as well... Looking forward to the videos about the 2020 L5P as well as how much it takes to "kill" (or shall I say destroy the turbine on) the 2019 L5P engine you have made 3 parts to already. Which by the way I have really enjoyed listening to you explain and talk about. You are right though. Seems like most "tuner kits" are not the way to go. Lastly, If I did anything to my 2018 L5P, it would simply be to delete the DPF and DEF... Seems I woudl regularly get a little better MPG being that the Regeneration process dumps so much extra fuel to clean the DPF. smh. Thank you. Andrew C.

I don’t like critiquing anybody, because who am I. I’ve been a technician for years and I understood what he was saying. When it comes to the Oil cooler and then the fan pulley he really sucked at describing why it was better. I understand why it was better but anybody who does not know vehicles or engines not motors will not understand this. The oil cooler, with that coolant coming in low and leaving high creates friction which in turn pulls the heat out of the engine oil. He doesn’t explain that so others won’t understand why that’s a better idea. The fan pulley having ribs on the pole he gives more bite to the belt so there’s less chance of fan slippage on a larger fan. He does a great job with designing and everything else but the man has issues explaining things from what I’m seeing. I’m sure he’s a great guy, I mean no disrespect. Geniuses have issues dealing with people because they don’t know how to explain what they want. Not saying he’s a genius, but he is smart and his explanation sucks.

I said engines, not motors because people call their engine or motor. Motors are electric and engines or mechanical. Just like calling a technician a mechanic. Might as well call a lawyer a cop.

Gale, I've been curious in the past about the location of the exhaust side and plumbing of the turbo for V engine diesels. I note on your Sidewinder kits in the '80s the turbo is off to the side but Duramax and Powerstrokes are in the valley. Does being off to the side effect egt and is there any concerns about radiant heat on neighbor components in the valley? Just seems kind of odd to put something so hot right there...
Chevrolet makes the best trucks and are the only old trucks you still see on the road unlike Fords and Dodge.

The Duramax Diesels have changed the landscape as far as development goes and just raised the ceiling. I have a 2018 L5P on my 3500HD Silverado Dually and I pull a 40 ft. dovetail trailer and have done 45,000 miles in 6 months. I love the engine and I am so glad to have it with that Allison. The only thing to go wrong was a popped glowplug and that's about it. The engine is a monster in stock trim and that sumbitch can pull the freakin sky down. Gale I am interested in knowing though if that 2020 oil cooler set up will work on the 2018 version of the L5P and if there are any clearance issues.

@Bear's End Productions stopping is rarely the trouble. A good setup can easily stop itself. Its turning a really heavy load that would be a concern. Brakes do nothing to overcome the inertia when trying to make all that weight change its direction.
