Hopefully GM is smart enough to put a 4 cylinder turbo in the new colorado. Doubt it would be this large of displacement, probably not even the 2.0T. I would be happy with the all new direct injection 1.6T, has more than 200HP and torque stock and should get better MPG than the 2015 colorado 2.5L.

The manifold and all the plumbing was fabricated.

Not sure what relations are like these days with "the other" Colorado forum, but I may or may not be selling these manifolds over there...

You didn't hear that from me though

Where did you get 60 lb injectors? I've been away from the modification scene for a while and recently jumped back in. Just got a posi 3.73 rear put in. Trans in the shop now getting built + a shift kit. Got a long tube header with 3 in outlet on the way. Plus everything that I had installed back in high school. I guess my question would be, will the dyno shop be able to crank up the fuel flow to match the extra air being sucked in the motor or do I need to get a set of heavier injectors before I retune it? If so where do you find them?

Stock engine on 15psi?!? I thought 8psi on e93 was the limit pretty much for a stock engine! (Mine is the 3.5 l5 though)
