Rob’s Custom Duramax Hummer H1

We are very excited to wrap up an amazing custom build for Rob.

After converting Robs Hummer to a Duramax Diesel with the Allison Transmission, we stripped his hummer down to Raw Aluminum and Steel. Rob then flew out for a quick visit to see the progress. After he saw his vehicle in a stripped down form, he turned to us and asked if we can leave it raw! With a little thought we said, “why not”.

We spent the rest of the day planning out how to accomplish this for Rob and decided that it would be best to do a two tone finish because of the fiberglass hood and steel doors. So Rob decided to go for it and as you can see in the pictures, it is nothing short of amazing!

After Robs Hummer was stripped from paint, we did a brushed finish on the aluminum. The 4 doors and a number of small accessories went out for a textured black powder coated finish. The tricky part of the paint and body work was integrating the fiberglass hood with the brushed aluminum finish. We decided to skin the top center section and follow it up with aluminum rivets to match the H1’s riveted finish. This was really tough and time consuming to get just right. We ended up going through 3 sheets of aluminum and many weeks of tweaking. The final product is a perfect balance of textured black paint and brushed aluminum work. Finally the raw aluminum body was prepped and painted with POR15 for a heavy duty clear coat finish.

On the inside we did a complete interior redesign by giving it a rouged “roll cage” style dash, custom gauges, iPad integration, custom switches, carpet and sound system. The great thing about the interior is that it really brings that rouged look and feel inside Robs Hummer without loosing the creature comforts.

We wrapped up the outside with our new LED Light Package, Search and Rescue Rear Winch Bumper and a number of other appointments.

This truck is by far one of the most unique Hummers to hit the trail!

We hope you enjoy your new Hummer Rob, just make sure to take care of our baby!!!

Bill Wu – Rally Racer

Bill Wu - Rally Racer

Bill Wu retired as a doctor several years ago to pursue professional rally street racing. He has raced consecutively in professional street races for the last 4 years. Traveling around the world he races in the Gum Ball 3000, the Bull Run and many other rally style street races. For the past several years Bill has been racing one of his fleet of Lamborghini Mercialgos. Then in 2005, after deciding to look for a different style of vehicle to race, he came to Predator to build a custom flat black H2 Duramax Diesel Hummer. Once the conversion on his H2 Hummer was completed, he used the vehicle as a support unit for his Lamborghini.

On the last leg of the Gumball 3000 race, his Lamborghini Mercialgo broke down. Bill Wu decided that the H2 Diesel Duramax Hummer would take him to the end of the race. Problem was, his H2 Hummer was registered in the Gum Ball 3000 as a support vehicle and therefore was not eligible to place in the actual race. Despite that issue, he jumped into the Predator built Duramax H2 support vehicle to continue on the race leaving the broken down Lamborghini on the side of the road. His Hummer went on to place 2nd overall even though the vehicle wasn’t technically in the race! Since then, Bill has consistently placed in the top 3 positions for each of the races he has competed in using the Predator H2 as his race vehicle. With a top speed of 160mph and a range of over 1200 miles between refuels, the Predator H2 Duramax Diesel Hummer is sure to win many more races! Recently, Bill just landed a position on the new reality tv show “Bull Run”, set to air this next summer. Bill’s next project with us includes a fully ground up restoration on an H1 Hummer Race Truck. Equipment includes the latest performance upgrades such as a dual ball bearing GT 42R Turbo, RapTorq High Performance Race Tune, Dual Fueler CP3 Pump Kit, Predator Stage V Transmission Upgrade Kit, High Performance Fuel Rail, and Predator RapJet Stage 3 Injectors which would allow the truck to push the 1000hp and 1900ft/lbs of torque range. Fuel economy will also be important, as Bill will be racing the Gumball 3000 race this coming year. The Gumball 3000 is a race that stretches over 3000 miles from Los Angeles, California to Miami, Florida in seven days with over 120 Race Cars. Interior options will include a full custom Blacked Out theme using the highest quality leather and suede materials available. Additionally, the vehicle will be outfitted with a CB radio, Sideband Radio, VHF Radio, full navigation system, and police scanner.

Press Release – H2 Hummer to a GM Duramax Diesel Engine and Allison 6-speed Transmission

Vista Calif., November 13, 2006 / PRWeb — Predator Motorsports Inc. today announced that it has released an economical conversion to increase the efficiency of the H2 Hummer for lower green house gas emissions and an increase in fuel economy of 100-180% depending upon options.

Predator Motorsports Inc. has developed a conversion for the H2 Hummer to a GM Duramax Diesel Engine and Allison 6-speed Transmission. The conversion for the GM Hummer H2 to Diesel doubles the fuel economy from 12 mpg to 24 mpg under the performance setting and can increase the fuel economy upwards of 30 mpg under an economy setting.

“The key to this efficiency”, said Dan Wilson, Predator Engineer, “is the ability to offer our customers the select ability of 2wd or 4wd with the push of a button as apposed to the stock GM Hummer H2 in full time All Wheel Drive. Couple this with the efficiency of the Duramax Diesel LBZ Engine and the 6-Speed Allison Transmission and we have created a very efficient vehicle.”

The conversion consists of removing the stock 6.0 liter Gas Engine, 4-speed Transmission and the All Wheel Drive Transfer Case. Then a brand new Duramax LBZ Engine, 6-Speed Allison Transmission and Selectable Transfercase are installed. Along with this, multiple computers, cooling upgrades and wiring harnesses are installed to complete the conversion. Predator offers many options such as performance upgrades boasting up to 800 hp and fuel economy upgrades which can top out your economy in the low 30 mpg range.

Predator also offers several Flex Fuel options for the GM H2 Duramax Conversion. “Economy is at the forefront of our conversion”. Said Ryan Wilson, President. “To maintain a future for our children we must all start to make a difference today. We have many options for our customers including the option of running Bio Diesel, Vegetable Oil, and hybrid fuels including Propane and Natural Gas.”
