Banks Power PicklePowerPickle®
Banks invented a ballistic flow device to overcome the problem that occurs where tubes join within a single collector; a "dead zone" that kills exhaust-gas velocity. The patented PowerPickle fills that void and utilizes the rotational firing order to maximize exhaust extraction. This detail-exclusive to Banks-captures exhaust-gas action and turns it into massive torque.

Gale Banks has pulled more power out of diesel engines than just about anyone-from motorhomes to record-breaking Bonneville salt racers. Banks has a history of breaking things-particularly speed records. Throughout the years, he has earned trophies at the Bonneville Salt Flats for the world's fastest pickup, fastest piston-engine automobile, and fastest passenger car. And those are just a few of his record-setting achievements.
