In the latest episode of Banks Speed School, Gale Banks wants to understand better the heritage of the engine family that continues to dominate the diesel horsepower war. Gale disassembles and inspects a 2011 Ford Power Stroke given to him in 2010. He proceeds to do an in-depth investigation as to just what makes the 6.7-liter engine, code-named Scorpion, different from its rival, the Duramax. “Ford is winning the horsepower war,” says Gale. “I want to know how! Why am I looking at this engine? This is the ‘OG’ Scorpion that started this whole thing between them and Duramax.” Sit back as Gale explores Ford’s engine design, and see how their innovations fueled the modern diesel horsepower war.
