Turbocharging
« on: October 29 2015, 07:05:01 PM »
When I was younger, I was really interested in theory and practice.  Gale Banks was one of the guys that I admired the most.

Here's a video that he produced discussing turbocharging

He was definitely a pioneer . Hot Rod used to have articles about his twin turbo stuff.
