Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray, bottom only of a 13×9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the cake mix, water, 1/2 cup oil and eggs and mix, on a low speed for 1 minute, scraping bowl as needed. Pour half the batter into the pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Heat caramels and evaporated milk in saucepan over medium heat; stir frequently, until melted and smooth. Stir in the pecans. Sprinkle the top of the warm cake evenly with the bananas. Pour the caramel mixture over the bananas. Sprinkle the top of the caramel with 1 cup chocolate chips. Carefully spread remaining batter over top. Bake an additional 30 minutes. 5 minutes before the cake is done combine the remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons oil in small saucepan.
