#TBT…We Went to Pikes Peak With an Agenda

Banks 866T V8 Turbo Diesel powered Oshkosh JLTVs
The Banks 866T V8 Turbo Diesel powered Oshkosh JLTV, the tactical vehicle of the future, testing at altitude, God knows where.

Using turbocharging we wanted to go fast and learn how to make big power, with No Air. At 14,000′ we refined our turbo control knowledge, then we applied it where it really matters. The military.

Size Matters...The Banks Super-Turbo Detroit 60 Series powered Freightliner taught us a lot about high altitude diesel calibration running Pikes Peak in the skillful hands of owner Mike Ryan! Oh, by the way, with Mike's lack of fear, this became the fastest Pikes Peak Semi, Ever!
