In late 2015, when the US Military decided to switch from the HMMWV in favor of the new front line military vehicle (the Oshkosh built JLTV) Banks abandoned their prototype “Hod Rod Humvee” project, leaving the military and civilian owners with (still) no way to upgrade their non-turbo HMMWV’s to the power of a turbo. Now that the Banks Hummer turbo kit is not to be, BMI has invested the R&D to develop a kit of our own. These kits are simplistic, yet effective in their function, utilizing purpose-designed proprietary parts to achieve a straightforward install with minimal modifications to the factory set-up. If your HMMWV has an aftermarket Red Dot A/C system installed, this kit will require moving the compressor. We are working on new brackets for the A/C compressor to make this modification a simple bolt-on affair.
Keeping with the military theme of rugged simplicity, the kits employ all-mechanical controls, with NO ELECTRONICS.
With many non-turbo (M998 M1035 M1037 M1038 &M1114) HMMWV trucks being auctioned off to the public, civilian demand is growing for a proven H1 turbo kit to upgrade these venerable (but underpowered) Hummer warriors.
Now, BMI is set to introduce the H-1 turbo kits that so many H-1 owners have been asking for.
There will be two turbo kits available to upgrade most any 6.2 or 6.5 Liter M998 M1035 M1037 M1038 & M1114 H-1 HMMWV (Humvee):
BMI Commander 6200 Turbo Kit (part# 6200TK1) $TBA ($3995-4595) – for 6.2L equipped trucks
BMI Commander 6500 Turbo Kit (part#6500TK1) $TBA ($3995-4595) – for 6.5L equipped trucks
