Hey all....

I posted this same message onto Revcon Curious but I'd thought I'd put it up here as well. Jim Bounds and Manny over at the GMC Co-Op in Orlando are apparently working on a project involving the fitment of an AM General 6.5 Turbo Diesel (same engine as powers the Military H1 Hummer) onto a GMC Motorhome, with the transmission bolting up directly to the motor. No adapter plate required. And.... no engine computer as well, it's all self-contained!

If this motor fits in the space for an Olds 455, wonder how it'd fit onto a Revcon? Here's the link if you want to read and watch the progress on the test coach. This may turn out to be very, very interesting.....


System Manager and your tourguide for the day. 1989 Revcon 31' MB #2752. Coach renovated between 2006-2009. 454 with .030 overbore, Doug Thorley headers, Federal Model 58 Traffic Blaster, Voyager backing camera system, more mods shortly forthcoming.
