There is one being fine tuned and worked on right now, currently on my truck.. Working with HPTuners to work with the software.. Check out my signature to see HP numbers, etc.. There will be varied kits and such, but I will not give out such information until everything is ready to rock. Rest assured this kit from the customer service to the product being sold, no matter which kit, products you get.. will be quality.. its taken some time to get everything setup, but its because the companies involved in putting this kit together is putting everything together and testing it properly before releasing it.. So yes.. there is a turbokit being made.. for both the i-5 and the i-4, but its a work in progress.. (Sooner than later, it should be ready to run... My truck is the prototype truck being worked with, So I will know when everything is up an running.. Keep in touch with me if your interest is truly there. (390 rwhp/430 ft torque right now, and should be more when HPTuners gets everything worked out.)

What would the numbers be for an I4. How much have you spent so far. i see ebay has a Garrett GT35R for sale for $1200 new. Is that good? Why not just put in a 4.2L or 5.7L????

Hahn racecraft (www.hahnracecraft.com) is also working on a kit for the colorado. I bought a kit from them for my non turbo eclipse. Everything I have experienced through them so far has been flawless and professional.

The biggest problem with the Turbo is the lack of a tuner for it. I have the power.. but the truck is running pretty rich.. There isnt a huge market for the Colorado yet, so tuners show little interest, which is silly considering the number of aftermarket modded S-10's.... So I am waiting for HPTuners to come out with something to tune the PCM with.

You can't just throw a turbo on there.. theres quite a bit more to it. The kit will come with exhaust and other goodies as well.. Coloradofans.com (probably not allowed to say that site name?) has a huge thread about my truck, and I have a site on cardomain in my sig if you need more info.

Write now is currently max holding pattern though, until there is an available tuner.
