2013 Holden Colorado Ltd
I’d like to thank the guys at Xtremetuning for the installation of a stage 1 performance remapping to my 2013 Holden Colorado Ltd Edition Extreme S.U.V. It’s a 2-wheel drive 6-speed auto. Before the chip, I found the turbo-lag a bit frustrating. Especially from a standing start. Also, when overtaking another vehicle from 80+ kph, the auto would scramble for gears that ran out of boost to soon, as the r.p.m rose above 3500. My concern was that once committed to an over-taking manoeuvre where there is only a small window of time to complete, I just didn’t have the confidence in my vehicle to execute with safety.
But now, with the chip? WOW! The turbo-lag is almost non-existant. Above 3500 rpm, especially in the higher gears, the engine keeps on pulling like a train. This is while going up hill on the Naraunga Gorge Wgtn, with a trailer filled with 550 kg of commercial roller garage door. Then having to brake hard upon realizing the rather high illegal speed incurred. I’m also glad my vehicle has traction control, as the warning light has become frequent part of my daily driving experience. Rather amusing with it off, wet ‘and’ dry. The only down side being my budget restraint on my rear tyres. So, thanks a lot guys at BRNO, Now I need a radar detector.
