About Banks Power

If the president of a company started preparing for his future at the age of 14 I am sure you would be impressed and that is just what happened when the Banks Power president tore down his mother&apos;s car to increase its horsepower at just that age but then remarkably two years later the impressive Gale Banks was in the engine business. And he stays involved even today as president of an engineering and manufacturing complex that consists of 12 acres in the San Gabriel Valley town of AZ usa.

Banks Power today is one of the foremost designers and manufacturers of power-enhancing products for everything from trucks to motorhomes and sport utility vehicles and having as a testament to their ingenuity is the fact that Banks Power is the one and only company to have record setting achievements at Bonneville in not only the automobile class but also the truck class. Still not impressed, well what if we told you Banks Power also has achieved titles like “World’s Fastest Passenger Car”, “World’s Fastest Pickup”, “ World’s Fastest Motorhome” and “World’s Fastest Diesel Drag Racing Truck”. And Banks Power has a miscellany of technological achievements to their credit consisting of things like turbocharging marine engines, twin-turbo small block Chevy engines, the Banks OttoMind electronic fuel management module, transmission control systems, exhaust scavenging systems and the iDash DataMonster.

The Banks iDash DataMonster is an extraordinary instrument that gives you the ability to see what is happening in your car so that you get the ultimate in driving experiences. Since it has the ability to monitor, display and data log things like speed, EGT, AFR, RPM and, of course, your engine temperature it is a perfect addition to fine tune your car’s performance. Additionally it lets you calculate Banks proprietary and/or patented information, things like manifold air density, intercooler effectiveness and others and it will log your car’s performance and you can also set custom alerts.

The Pedal Monster by Banks has a whopping thirty levels of control to give you adjustable low speed trim, reverse safety and ActiveSafety circuitry and best of all it is the only OBD-II connected throttle sensitivity controller. Another great product by Banks, the Banks Ram-Air, is designed to give your vehicle maximum airflow through the use of the enclosed cold-air housing, large inlet, super sized filter and excellent design with an airflow that is superior to your stock system.

The Banks’ Intercooler Systems have remarkable testing results showing twenty percent in boost gain, sixty percent in density improvement and twenty percent in air flow through to the radiator all resulting in a quicker response at the throttle, significant increase in power and increased economy. And for your DPF equipped truck owners who want a performance exhaust consider the fact that your DPF cycles acutely high temperatures through your exhaust system but unlike other systems that fail in this area, Banks has developed and patented the Sidekick™ exhaust to rid your car of these perilous temperatures.

And don’t forget to check out the other equally impressive products from Banks, like the Turbo Performance Kits, Tuners and Programmers, Power and Efficiency Systems, and Engine Braking Systems.

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your BMW

If you own a BMW, the luxury German car, then we know you appreciate the finer things in life and want top quality performance out of your car and we want to help you do that with the prestigious array of performance parts available on our web site. Parts like those from the inimitable SPEC Clutch line with Clutch Kits from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and the Mini Twin and in the SPEC Super Twin for the M6, M5 and M3. We know you don’t want a cookie cutter clutch but one that satisfies your driving needs and the stage selection of the SPEC clutch is determined primarily by use, rather it be for street use or more high performance use such as racing or autocross. and by materials used to manufacture the various clutches such as molded carbon KEVLAR, full faced Kevlar with steel backing, carbon semi-metallic on one side, carbon semi-metallic 6 puck sprung or not sprung, carbon semi-metallic with a double sprung hub, solid hub with 8 rivets or full-metallic disc- all decided by you, the driver. The pressure plate in your BMW is the driving force between your engine's power and the drive line and if you are doing intense driving you need a performance pressure plate like the one from SPEC for increased holding power. Another great product from SPEC, the billet flywheel exceeds the industry standard of .010 tolerances by a considerable amount with the .001 tolerance guaranteeing ideal balance and flat bedding and can be rebuilt and have a replaceable steel friction plate and they are a lightweight alternative to your factory flywheel.

Several estimable exhaust kit options are available for your BMW and one such brand is CORSA Performance, a renowned manufacturer of aftermarket performance exhausts. CORSA Performance features straight unrestricted flow mufflers and are available depending on application in 3 different sound levels to suit your taste. For example, CORSA'S BMW M3 exhaust system features a patented non-restrictive straight-through design resulting in the reduction of back pressure and freeing up much needed power all resulting in improved horsepower and torque. Since there is no drone because of CORSA’S own RSC Reflective Sound Cancellation technology, you never need to worry about the that annoyance just expect great sound.

Another very popular choice by BMW enthusiasts are the B&B (Billy Boat) exhausts which are made right here in the U.S. in Arizona. They feature 304 mandrel bent Stainless steel and come in several muffler styles such as the Bullets, PRT, and Fusion. B&B tunes each muffler to match its application for the best possible performance gain and sound quality combination. Billy Boat recently started to incorporate the PRT technology into all of their muffler systems. PRT Technology allows true straight through exhaust passage under aggressive driving, though a mellow sound is emitted at cruising speed thanks to the unique Purge Chamber. The use of two distinct packing materials and several S.C.C.’S inside the BILLY BOAT muffler enable them to create a harmonious sound that will have heads turning when you drive by.
