Similar to AMSOIL, the company’s fundamental principles combine old-fashioned business ethics and service with leading technology, elegantly engineered products, superior construction, scientifically proven performance and competitive prices.

Records and accomplishments

Banks Founder and President Gale Banks is one of the most recognized names in aftermarket performance.

Since the 1960s, his futuristic, high-performance engines have broken new ground and set world records. His marine engines have propelled racing boats to national and world championships.

After decades of racing, Banks Power is still the only company to have set records at Bonneville in both automobile and truck classes, including such titles as…

Banks company history is studded with technological achievements.

  • Gale’s pioneering work in turbocharging marine engines in 1969
  • The premiere of twin-turbo small-block Chevy engines in 1978

  • Transmission-control systems
  • Exhaust-scavenging systems
  • The recent invention and patent of the iDash DataMonster, the only instrument to calculate, log and display an exclusive suite of engine parameters, including manifold air density

“I’m a futurist,” says Banks. “My entire career has been about what’s next.”

“Through the decades, we at Banks have opened new markets in marine engines, turbocharging, truck and motorhome power systems, turbocharged tuner cars, diesel power systems, electronic tuners and exhaust brakes. Plus, I’m proud to have worked for many major car and engine manufacturers in defining their future products,” says Banks.

Established in 1958, Banks has grown to 100+ employees on a 12-acre campus. The Mechanical Engineering Department is staffed with world-class automotive experts who design and test the latest high-performance equipment.

In the Race Shop, special-project vehicles feature cutting-edge diesel and gasoline development, multiple turbo applications, mind-boggling horsepower and head-turning style.

Sophisticated electronic engineering technologies are applied to engine improvement in the rapidly growing Computer Systems Engineering Department. Gale Banks Engineering designs turbocharged engines from the centerline of the crankshaft and out.
