Hey guys, I am 22 and from santa clarita CA. I have a 2006 Hummer H3 and came over here because it seems that you guys have figured out all the engine swap info and engine performance mods compared to the hummer guys.

A little about myself. The H3 was my dad's for 4 years when the lease was up I put a down payment on it (washed cars every weekend for years while in HS) and he would help me with car payments until I was older finished HS and got a job. Now that I am 22, I have been working for 4 years and almost done with college it doesnt look the same as it once did. The H3 is my first vehicle and when I started I didn't even know how to turn a wrench. Everything I have learned was on this vehicle and best of all it was built in the driveway. I am an offroader and went from stock to rancho lift to rancho lift with a spring over (first fab job) and now then just finished my own SAS w/ a 3link front 14in travel bilsteins ZJ coil springs, box from a Xterra and a dana 44 from a 73 blazer that runs adapter brackets to keep stock brakes, rotors and kept ABS. Its a daily driver and still runs down the freeway at 75 smoothly with 136k miles on the clock. Not much performance mods done to it but now that the suspension is done and working how I want it on and off road I can start to focus on other things. Eventually when the motor blows I would like to ditch the 3.5 but for now its here to stay because its there and doesnt cost much to keep the motor there lol. Other then an intake and exhaust its stock no PCM tune or anything. I tend to upgrade after things break like my headers did the other day. Does anyone know if Al's headers in anaheim still makes them for the colorados? If so I wanna pick them up, seeing its a DD my down time is limited.

Here are some pics
