Thread: Gday people

  1. #1

    Default Gday people

    I am a Aussie living in Thailand and just bought my first little 2009 chevy colorado 2.5 turbo intercooled diesel and love it even with the ugly front end ( it grows on you). I have started do some engine mods to the truck already and am really impressed with it peformance and next month will be taking it to the next level with a whole host of new mods.
    Have never really been into cars, more of a bike person so I am learning bits all the time with the help of a Aussie guy in Bangkok suppling me with hi proformace parts

    Anyway the site looks good

    A few pics,
    Next month the car goes to Bangkok for a larger turbo with a modified housing, bigger intercooler, quick spool headers, waste gate , smart gauges, cold air intake with all new piping and silcon hoses, and re program the DSM. and new 3" exhuast system will be looking at about 275hp and 600 nm of torq.
    It a fun truck to drive already with only 200hp and 400+ nm of torq.
    its un like any diesel I have ever driven and bags the wheels easly in fist and second gear. I have had it up to 200 klm/h but then it hits the speed limiter that needs to be removed by someone that knows what there doing.

    Wow is all I can say, the truck is very different from the Americanized version! Your right that front end has to grow on you, at first I was like "Oh hell No!" But the more I look at it It kind of looks like an Equinox grille with Ascender headlights, but the rest of the truck looks really good. Welcome to site, and we look forward to more pictures.
