Default Colorado Turbo Sounds

Look, I have been around the diesel industry for a long time. I have heard some of the best turbo sounds out there and lets be honest, there is nothing better than hearing some good turbo sounds. Last week, I went on a ride in a straight piped compound turbo Colorado... Those little trucks are insane. The sound of the truck was literally the best sounding diesel I have ever heard. The turbo blow off is like hearing the gates of heaven open. riding in a built one instantly made me want one.... Maybe the LMM should adapt a little brother

My Cruze diesel has an aftermarket intake with a metal tube and it literally sounds like a GT4202 old school turbo, but with 1/5 the power ����

Brian, what intake did you install? Were you able to use one for the 1.8/1.4?

It's a K&N then I had the plastic tube removed and had a metal one made.

Neither the 1.8 or 1.4 will work with the diesel

I'm waiting to see what the Chevy 1500 inline diesel can do. I bet it will be a torquer.
