Tuning The Holden Colorado - Holden Colorado on dyno at Alt Tune getting a power tune

2018 Holden Colorado

2.8L four-cylinder turbo – Delco E98 ECU – EGR and DPF

The Challenge

The Holden Colorado has long been recognized as a reliable and capable mid-size pickup truck. Its rugged design and impressive off-road capabilities make it a popular choice among adventure and off-road enthusiasts. However, for those seeking an extra dose of power and performance, tuning the Holden Colorado can transform this already capable truck into an absolute beast.

In this post, we will explore the benefits tuning the Holden Colorado can have. The 2018 Holden Colorado is controlled by its Delco E98 ECU and is fitted with both EGR and DPF. If this does not fit the description of your Colorado then check out our other articles. We have an article about a 2016 Holden Colorado that also has a Delco E98 ECU but only has EGR. We also have an article about the 2015 Colorado that has a Bosch ECU and fitted with EGR only.

As an example, we are going to use this 2018 Holden Colorado we had on the dyno. The customer wanted to enjoy that full driving experience.

The Solution

We decided that power tuning the ECU could give the Colorado the extra boost the customer was looking for. Upgrading the Holden Colorado with a power tune is an exciting improvement that can unlock the engine’s full potential.

The 2018 Holden Colorado can be upgraded further by adjusting the emissions system to the tune. Thc Colorado can have EGR and DPf problems. We can solve these problems while tuning the vehicle.

We could see increased power, enhanced torque, and improved throttle response after adding the power tune. This makes the tuned Holden Colorado a high-performance machine that conquers both on and off-road challenges with ease.
