ISUZU has announced that it is to offer a tuning pack for its popular Rodeo pick-up. In conjunction with Prodrive, the company behind Subaru’s rally team, you can now have a Denver max variant with bit more power.
Costing £760 including VAT and fitting, the Prodrive Performance pack (PPP) boosts power from 100 horsepower at 3,800rpm to 128 horsepower – a 28 per cent increase. Of equal importance is the increase in the engine’s torque output – up by 33 per cent to 222lb/ft.
Available immediately – and fitted by any official Isuzu (UK) Limited dealer – Isuzu claims the PPP delivers a stronger throttle response, increased flexibility, greater refinement and quicker acceleration.
The extra power and torque is down to a reprogrammed Electronic Control Unit, which changes the fuel supply and alters the ignition timing.
And as turbo boost is not affected, engine strain remains low. Crucially, thus means Isuzu has been able to include the PPP under its normal three-year/60,000 mile warranty.
