    That looks pretty cool! Where did you get the $3K price from?

    Re: Banks turbo kit for jeep 4.0l

    I want to get that,,, I wonder if its set up for low end.. spools fast.
    then what psi there going to run it at on stock internals.
    Then the programing of it if it would even work on mine.

    Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools

    Good for the highway, but a belt driven supercharger would work better in a Jeep for my 2 cents

    I have a Banks turbo on my diesel, works great. Way better performance than stock.

    That being said for the cost of the one for the 4.0 I would go with a fuel injected 4.3 or 5.7 Chevy for less money.

    Is it cool? Ya. Would it be fun? Maybe. Does it make sense? Probably not.

    If you spend a lot of time in the mud or sand where you're asking for hi-rev horse power, then it might be an option worth cosidering. But, if you spend a lot of time doing anything else, then the money is much better spent on differential and/or x-case gears.

    Non-intercooled turbo in a vehicle that will be doing a lot of slow moving in the AZ desert? Yuck! Can you imagine what the IAT would look like? I'd opt to sell the 4.0 and use the funds, plus the cost of the kit, and drop in something with a bit more displacement. Cooling turbo cars in the AZ during the summer sucks.

    Sounds interesting, I did not see where banks said it would be $3,000? They said much lower than $5K! The avenger SC is a great way for power increase if you have to keep an I-6. This is interesting at $3k they would sell a ton of them.

    Re: Banks turbo kit for jeep 4.0l

    I could build an injected 5.0 motor that would outpull a turbo 4.0 for about the same price but it would be more reliable and you wouldn't have to worry about cooling the intake air (intercooler). I would love a small turbo diesel in my Jeep but I just don't see that being cost effective either. Nothing against banks. I have bought plenty of stuff from them over the years and they are great people to deal with.
    I'm sorry, what? I was ignoring you

    Re: Banks turbo kit for jeep 4.0l

    According to the banks power website, the image above is a prototype. There doesn't appear to a timing cover or water pump, and there is no line or breather set for the PCV valves. I also doubt that the intake manifold would fit all that well under the hood of a Wrangler. So it is possible that the prototype is incomplete.

    We'll have to wait and see about the final product incarnation, dyno results, and cost.

    505 performance has been around for years and their kit includes an intercooler.
