The H1 Hummer needed a new head gasket for its factory 6.5. Rather than keep the factory engine, the owner wanted an old 12V Cummins with an Allison from a bread truck - but Rob Hartman convinced him to go with an LBZ Duramax. The donor came from a wrecked 2006 with 160K. Only three months, and 130 hours of labor, the 2003 H1 Hummer had a new identity. The LBZ has 60% injectors, 68mm turbo, and an Allison 6 speed with a GM 261 transfer case. The project sits on 40's with a three-inch body lift, stock CP3 and a lift pump. 

All of this is fascinating - of course - especially when you hear how Rob fit everything into the H1's engine bay.

This is the audio version of a video posted on Facebook and YouTube. 

The Diesel Performance Podcast visits Banks Power and talks with Gale Banks about the new Duramax L5P.

We see the L5P disassembled with each component (turbo, connecting rods, pistons, injectors, cylinder head, and more) - examined and compared to the Duramax LML. It's a fascinating up close look at the new engine and all the performance improvements General Motors included. Bottom line: the L5P redefines and reshapes diesel like never before. Get ready for an exciting future in diesel performance.
