2014 Isuzu NLR Series

NLS – 3.0L Turbo Diesel – Transtron ECU

The Challenge

The NLS can reach new performance levels through a technology called ECU tuning. In this article, we will explain how tuning the Isuzu NLS truck can exceed the factory standards.

Isuzu’s NLS model is part of the NLR series and comes with an all-wheel drive setup, offered in various configurations, including cab/chassis, crew-cab/chassis, and short-cab tipper options. Unlike Isuzu’s NPS models, which are designed for extreme off-road conditions with high ground clearance and low-range gearing, the NLS isn’t intended to be an all-terrain vehicle. Instead, it enhances the NLR by providing extra traction capabilities tailored for challenging or slippery terrains.

The Solution

By applying custom ECU tuning, the engine control unit (ECU) can be reprogrammed to optimize its performance or adapt to your specific requirements. Tuning the Isuzu NLS will boost its horsepower and torque, making it more responsive and enabling it to handle heavier loads without any physical modifications to the truck, thanks to the use of Alientech KESS3.

ECU tuning can also fix emission system fault codes and address potential future emission-related issues. There’s no need to retire your NLS; all it takes is a tune, and it will be prepared to take on the roads and construction sites once again.

Further Benefits Of Tuning The Isuzu NLS

Increased Power and Torque

With more power and torque, a tuned truck can handle heavier loads and perform tasks more efficiently. It allows the truck to pull or push larger implements, haul heavier loads, and complete tasks faster, resulting in increased productivity.

Years of Development

We have been tuning Isuzu’s 3.0L turbo diesel engine for years, and understand how they work as well as the limitation on factory hardware.


Easy and fast programming

Easy, fast and non-evasive via programming the factory-fitted diagnostic port.
