Colorado Big Boy Intercooler upgrade has been on the cards for some time for this Colorado.  Last in the Power Curve Performance work shop November 2016 from Ipswich.  November booking saw the Colorado in for a diesel performance ECU Tune.  The next upgrade on the dream list was the Lexendex Colorado Big Boy Intercooler.  Just prior to Christmas the standard factory Colorado Intercooler split and failed. Waiting to upgrade is an easy financial decision in the middle of summer with a damaged intercooler like this.  Although all legendex systems are self install compliant some variables occur.  The vehicle had the bull bar repaired and previously modified with a winch and some specific differences.   Installing new upgrades into a brand new vehicle is relatively...
