BANKS rumoerd to be testing twin turbos

Ive been hearing rumors about BANKS building and testing twin turbos, so I emailed em to find out, this is what he had to say.Reference: 350 and 454 twin turbo kits
to bab I cant afford one.

The rumors are all true. We are in fact releasing an updated version of our
old 350 small block twin turbo kit very soon, but as to actual power figures
I have no data yet. We're trying different fuel systems, engine components,
and turbo combos to get the best power #'s. We hope to get 600 to 1600 hp in
various lit levels. I'll enclose a picture of our proto.

Interested?

And one other thing... the 454 is on the drawing board to come out next.
