About the 2013-2016 Isuzu MUX

The Isuzu MU-X, produced between 2013 and 2016, is a mid-size SUV known for its robustness and versatility. It shares its platform with the Chevrolet Trailblazer.

The MU-X is powered by a 3.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, producing 130 kW of power and 380 Nm of torque. It comes with either a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission and is available in both 2WD and 4WD configurations. Fuel efficiency averages around 8-9 litres per 100 kilometres.

For off-road capabilities, the 4WD versions have a low-range transfer case, traction control, and a limited-slip differential. The suspension includes a double-wishbone front and a five-link rear, providing comfort over rough terrain. The MU-X has been well-received in markets like Australia, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East for its durability and reliability.

The 2013-2016 Isuzu MU-X is a reliable SUV with a good balance of on-road comfort and off-road capability, making it ideal for families and adventure enthusiasts.

Custom Dyno Tuning Isuzu MUX

Your Isuzu MU-X (2013-2016) can become significantly slower when towing, especially when your air conditioning and other accessory systems require power, and the engine provides that power.

Many drivers feel frustrated while driving, which can make simple overtaking a big problem, and applying full throttle is a natural reaction when they think their Isuzu MU-X cannot perform as they expect.

This is because a diesel engine is meant to deliver strong torque and towing force at middle engine speed ranges (2000-4000 rpm). As a result, the car cannot complete an overtake even at full throttle if driving on a gently sloping road with a medium load onboard.

This results in potentially unsafe driving conditions and higher fuel consumption.

A Stage 1 tuning package is a popular enhancement choice among diesel car enthusiasts seeking to boost their vehicle’s performance without compromising reliability or drivability.

The typical Stage 1 Diesel tuning package for a diesel car involves adjustments to the engine’s software or ECU (Engine Control Unit) to optimize its performance. This leads to a notable increase in power and torque, enhanced throttle response, and an overall improved driving experience.

These modifications contribute to heightened engine intake and exhaust flow, resulting in improved breathing and enhanced power delivery.

It’s crucial to recognize that any alterations to your diesel vehicle’s engine could potentially impact its reliability, emissions, and warranty. Consequently, it is advisable to select a reputable tuning company with expertise in diesel vehicles, capable of offering a customized tuning package tailored to your specific requirements and objectives.

In summary, a Stage 1 tuning package for diesel cars can be an excellent means to elevate performance and driving enjoyment. However, it is essential to carefully weigh the potential risks and benefits before proceeding with any modifications to your vehicle.

Stage 2 Package Inclusions:
