Wood-Banks Dekon Monza

1978 Woods – Banks IMSA Monza – First Banks Automotive Twin-Turbo

The Woods-Banks Dekon Monza featured the first Banks automotive twin-turbocharged system. The Monza’s engine is based on one of the first five General Motors High Performance Program’s 302 ci small-block – an engine block designed specifically for NASCAR racing.

This engine overpowered every system on the Monza, including tires, brakes, and aerodynamics.
