We like the Land Cruiser Colorado and with a few of our Land Cruiser Colorado tuning tips we are sure you will have a fantastic car. Better than what Toyota ever intended!
Available in standard form with power of upto 177bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Land Cruiser Colorado. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 194.7bhp to 300.9bhp but this is far out of the reach of your local part store.
You will need some extensive work on the engine block, gas flowing, porting, 3 angle valve job, fast road cams, a remap, full balance and blueprint and even then you will need to add some pretty serious forced induction upgrades.
Toyota mods should include an engine swap to provide a better base to work from. The ‘177bhp Colorados’ is a real gem in terms of power. The Car Tuning Guide have been impressed by the Land Cruiser Colorados (especially the sporty ones!) They reward the tuner with even more power and a better ride. Top of your list for tuning mods will be a sports exhaust system, a fuel boost valve (for a snappy throttle response) and a good quality induction kit.
A fast road cam will make quite a difference to the peak power of your Land Cruiser Colorado. Turn your attention next to the Land Cruiser Colorados engine head. With a good gas flowed ported engine you will see much better mid and peak range power.
The top Colorado offers a base power level of 177 bhp. The car tuning guide would expect you to see power gains from 194.7 bhp to 300.9 bhp!
You will get even larger power gains for these tuning mods on a Land Cruiser Colorados. A simple remap and better intercooler will almost double your power.The most powerful Land Cruiser Colorado has a healthy 177 bhp. In a competition setting you may well, with some forced induction, reboring and other major work see power figures between 230.1 bhp to 336.3bhp with mods we have outlined above.) Many Land Cruiser Colorado owners improve the handling of their cars with slightly stiffer springs. You shouldn’t really lower a car by more than 30-35mm.
