“1994 Hummer H1, bought two years ago with the stock 6.5 non-turbo diesel seized up, the previous owner’s insurance would not pay to have engine replaced so they salvaged it out for some reason, and I bought as is. Truck had not been in any accident, just an engine failure. Stock diesel was removed, fuel injected 454 with twin T3/T4 turbos was installed. Chevrolet 81 454 block, standard bore, 2 bolt mains, square port heads, JDM T3T4 turbochargers, Professional Products Powerjection III EFI. Engine is mounted to solid motor mounts and bolted to stock GM 4L80E transmission with standalone computer, Optishift by Beaumann Electronics. Truck has a WARN 12,000lb winch. Truck comes with 6 spare cv/halfshafts, over 20 spare ball joints, tie rods, pitman arms, idler arms, 6 fuel cans, fuel cans mount to back and can be seen in video. Sitting on brand new Goodyear MTR’s, still have the whiskers on them.When the diesel was removed all the wiring in engine bay was cut with it, so the new motor is wired to a temp ignition inside, new owner will have to hook up oem harness to get power to the lights, windows ect. Again, wiring is not finished, harness will need to be spliced back together… Turbo seals are worn out and will need to be rebuilt or replaced as they leak oil into the exhaust and smoke considerably. This truck is a really nice project for the right buyer who can turn wrenches and handle a project that is one of a kind, turns heads everywhere you go, way faster than the diesels. It’s a project, an offroad machine, not a daily driven pavement princess. Not a gem by any means but is an awesome truck and would be one of a kind once finished.”
Jimmy finally saw the shortcomings in his plan to revive the Hummer sans wiring and decided to buy something he could drive out of his backyard.
