The right way to increase the performance of your Isuzu KB300 3.0 DTEQ 130kw.
Since the new shape Isuzu KB300 DTEQ came out in 2012, we were the first to have a software solution for these engines. Injection system went from Delphi in the previous model to Transtron in the new model. This made it possible to read and write via OBD. We have tried and tested many different chips and plug and play chips. Nothing came close to the ECU Remapping in terms of safety and power. The plug & play units connecting on the common rail sensors proved to be useless and a waste of time & money. The chip options that did make a reasonable difference cost anywhere in the region of R7500 – R15000 or more vs the ECU Remapping / Software Upgrade price of R3000 – R3500. No chip option can add the amount of additional power safely like with ECU Remapping. We also never had any issues in terms of warranty & reliability.
Let’s talk figures. This particular vehicle is a KB300 DTEQ Auto. Before the ECU Remap power was at 107.9kw & 366nm. After the remap power was at 139.8kw & 505nm. Total gained was 31.9kw & 139nm. The least we have ever gained was 25kw & 90nm and the best were 34kw & 140nm. The KB300 DTEQ with Manual gearbox usually gains in the region of 25-30kw & 90-120nm. It is possible to add even more power, but to keep the engine reliable we stopped at the above figures. Enough to make a big difference and keep the engine as reliable as it should be.
It is a no-brainer, ECU Remap / Software Upgrade is the way to go without any doubt.
