Banks Innovation

The legacy and technological leadership of Gale Banks Engineering in the diesel aftermarket is unquestioned. With its long history of breakthrough innovations (many patented!) in high performance gas and diesel engine development - including turbocharging and drive train - Banks has no rival. Time and again, Banks has proven its design, engineering and manufacturing prowess in whole vehicle development/modification, including Project Sidewinder, Banks/GMC Syclone and the big block twin-turbo Pontiac Firebird.

Banks Engineering

First and foremost, Banks is an engineering firm. Established in 1958, Banks has grown to 200+ employees on a 12-acre campus. The Mechanical Engineering Department, staffed with world-class automotive people, designs and tests the latest high performance equipment. In the Race Shop, Banks' special project vehicles feature cutting-edge diesel and gasoline development, multiple turbo applications, mind-boggling horsepower and head-turning style. Sophisticated electronic engineering technologies are applied to engine improvement in the rapidly growing Computer Systems Engineering Department. Gale Banks Engineering designs turbocharged engines from the centerline of the crankshaft, out.

Banks Prototyping

Gale Banks Engineering is the company others come to for advanced research and development, including "outside the box" projects for both product feasibility and image-generating media attention. Major automakers, including Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, Volvo and Pontiac, have relied on Banks' expertise and capabilities.

Banks Testing

When it comes to testing, Banks' engineers are as ruthless as they are uncompromising. Only the most advanced equipment and facilities are used for testing and re-testing existing products, production prototypes and experimental designs for performance, durability and compatibility. Ongoing testing ensures unparalleled functionality, product endurance and quality control.

Banks Manufacturing

The Banks difference is clearly demonstrated in its Manufacturing Division. While many aftermarket suppliers farm-out designs or assemble "grab-bag kits" from various sources, Banks manufactures to exacting specifications every product it designs.

Banks Capability

Gale Banks Engineering applies an unmatched combination of experience, capabilities and design/engineering/manufacturing savvy to provide automotive services and solutions that keep raising the aftermarket industry bar.

Banks Power systems and Banks Brake systems are designed to conform to vehicles operated within maximum load specifications.

Gale Banks Engineering (BANKS) warrants to the original purchaser that any parts purchased from an authorized dealer shall be free from defects in material and workmanship from the date of purchase for the corresponding time period outlined below. Please read these warranty terms and conditions (the "Agreement") carefully prior to installing and/or using any BANKS Product (the "Product"). By installing and/or using the Product you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.

A defect is defined as a condition that would render the Product inoperable. This warranty does not cover deterioration of plating, paint, or any other coating. Due to the subjective nature of sound BANKS does not warrant for sound. BANKS liability is limited to the repair or replacement, at BANKS' option, of any warrantable Product returned prepaid with a complete service history and proof of purchase to the factory. A valid proof of purchase is defined as a legible dated bill of sale from an authorized dealer. Repaired or replaced Product will be returned to the customer freight collect. If a replacement Product is not reasonably available BANKS will have the option to either replace the Product with a substantially similar Product or refund a pro-rated amount of the original purchase price for that specific Product. Any repaired or replacement BANKS Product will conform to the warranty for the unexpired duration of the warranty period for the original, nonconforming Product. Accepted warranty units which have been replaced become the sole property of BANKS. All BANKS Products are subject to the provisions stated herein regardless of mileage.

PRODUCT RETURNED FOR WARRANTY determination must be accompanied by a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number obtained in advance from a BANKS customer service representative. BANKS Is not responsible for return freight on any delivery refused for not having an RMA number. BANKS will be the final authority on all warranty decisions.

This warranty shall not apply to any unit which has been improperly stored or installed; subjected to misapplication, improper operating conditions, used in race applications, used for off-road purposes, involved in accidents, subjected to neglect; or which has been improperly repaired or altered or otherwise mistreated or improperly maintained by the owner or his agent. This warranty is VOID for any new products purchased through auction websites. Labor costs incurred by the removal and replacement of a BANKS Product, while performing warranty work, will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner. In no case does the obligation of BANKS exceed the original purchase price of the Product as indicated on the original bill of sale. This Warranty is non-transferable and coverage applies for the BANKS Product installed on the original vehicle for the original purchaser of those Products.

THE PRECEDING LIMITED WARRANTIES ARE THE EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES GIVEN BY BANKS FOR THE PRODUCT AND SUPERSEDE ANY PRIOR, CONTRARY OR ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL. BANKS DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.

BANKS ALSO DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF USE, REVENUE OR PROFIT, COST OF CAPITAL, COST OF SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT, REPAIR LABOR, TOWING EXSPENSE, RENTAL VEHICLES, HOTEL COSTS OR ANY OTHER INCONVENIENCE COSTS. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, AND SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANY CONSUMER OR TO ANY PERSON OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER RESIDING WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CONTINENTAL U.S. OR CANADA. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

This Agreement will be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws principals. This warranty replaces all previous warranties.

*Ltd. warranty does not cover service conditions (i.e. soot buildup in shaft bushings due to out-of-tune engine, or excess heat-damage due to overly-rich fueling conditions).
