First Startup of Supercharged Duramax

The first startup of the Supercharged Duramax in LokJaw finally happened! “I’ve never had an engine that responds like this,” says Gale Banks with a smile from ear to ear. “High-compression big block Chevy with a blower… all of the above. This guy is the champion.”

Here’s your chance to hear the first startup of our forthcoming series of high-performance diesel turnkey (crate) engines. The exhaust note from all modern diesel engines is dampened by a turbo. There is no turbo to reduce the sound from this engine. The exhaust exits the engine through a set of custom headers, into a collector, and out to the world via a Banks 5” Monster Exhaust. After Banks calibrator Jeff Lee tunes the engine, we’ll be hitting the road. Subscribe to Banks’ YouTube channel so you don’t miss any tire smoke.
