To illustrate, we’ll take a look at a 2016 Holden Colorado that we have fine-tuned. The customer was seeking to improve its off-road capabilities, and fortunately, here at Alt Tune, we possess the necessary tools to deliver just that.

The Solution

The first step is to take a look at the Colorado and read the ECU using Alientech KESS3. After having the results from that we decided to give the ECU a power tune. Power tuning, also known as performance tuning or engine remapping, involves optimizing a vehicle’s engine settings to increase power, torque, and overall performance. This improves acceleration, better towing capacity, and enhanced off-road capabilities.

The Emission solution on the 2016 Holden Colorado can create problems. We have the tools to adjust the EGR so that it fits the tune and will not create problems in the future. By harnessing the potential of power tuning, the 2016 Holden Colorado can become a true powerhouse that excels in any terrain and makes every drive an adventure.
