4x4 Diesel Chevy Colorado
I live and work overseas in Thailand. Here is a shot of my truck. It is a 2007 Chevy Colorado. It has a 3.0 liter 4 cylinder diesel. I changed the turbo to a Holset HX 32 and installed a bigger Intercooler. It was Dynoed in Bangkok and it had 283 rear wheel horse power and 411 ft/lbs of torque. This was with 275/45R20 tires. I just lifted it and put on 35" tires. I will be changing the programmer to a stand alone unit to see if there is some more power in there. There should be some updates in a couple months. Rainy season is coming!!
