4-Cylinder Duramax!!

I want to inform. I am working overseas in thailand and I see these little Chevy Colorados running around with DURAMAXES!!!! WHAT!?? Yes, GM built a D-Max engine factory in Rayong, Thailand. They manufacture 2.8L and 2.5L 4cyl duramax diesels. Rated at 180hp and 347ftlbs for the 2.8L with variable geometry turbo. I want to put one in all my other non-truck vehicles. I just need to figure out how to pack a container full of them and ship it to the states.

I may love my country just a little less for creating emissions standards that will never let me see that day.

Maybe I'm over-reacting but I've never even thought I'd ever see anything like this. I thought that dream died with the LMK

Here's proof

2013 Chevy Cars, Trucks, SUVs, Crossovers and Vans | Chevrolet Thailand it's Asian but you can get them in a Colorado or Trailblazer. Look for their news releases

If I get a spare day I'm taking a cab to the dealership to see one in person and see what a 'replacement' engine would cost me.
