Ralliart Colt Z27AG Pops and Bangs

May 7, 2018 // 0 Comments

Merlin’s Guide to Tuning Evo’s talks about one way to get Pops and Bangs from your Mitsubishi Evolution. A while back I tried applying it to Turbo Colts, namely Australian delivered 2006 Ralliart Colts.  The method basically involves richening up the fuel and retarding the ignition in certain spots in the map.  When you lift off throttle, timing goes negative, and fuel is dumped in, so that we get lots of fuel getting ignited very late, and hopefully causing this to continue igniting outside of the engine. Sounds like a bad idea? It probably is, but it its a neat party trick. As with everything on this site, do it at your own risk!! Step 1 – Delay fuel cut For the above method to work you need to delay how long it is [...]

DRIVETRIBE Colt Groups

December 1, 2016 // 0 Comments

The ex-TopGear guys have launched a social network for car enthusiasts. I think it looks pretty good on initial impressions. I’ve set up a group for turbocolt.com on Drivetribe here https://www.drivetribe.com/t/SN-lTIwrTpmEt8EG4IJE-g/S4hh4CEjSsKsdfTkwdgWuw You can use it to follow updates on here, and to get other not blog post worthy updates and photos.  I don’t intend on it being as large asthe other Colt groups but who knows, it might take off more than expected. So what are the other larger Colt groups on DriveTribe? Check out these ones: Colt Status (run by Rcolt.com Facebook team) link here TurboColtUK (run by TurbColtUK Facebook team) link here Ralliart Colt Adelaide (run by me for the local scene in Adelaide, South [...]

Z27AG JDM Colt Version R ECU Download

December 24, 2015 // 3 Comments

Assuming you have got yourself a Tactrix Openport, the following steps detail how to do the Z27AG JDM Colt Version R ECU download.  The Japanese Colt Version R’s use a different ECU image to the Australian Ralliart Colts so the Aussie XML won’t work on the Version R’s. I’ve made an XML stub file to help in the process, but it’s not essential.   If you’re looking for the complete XML for the JDM models I might be able to help (leave a comment below and I’ll email you). Anyway back to downloading your ECU rom image.  Here goes: Install EcuFlash from this link https://www.dropbox.com/s/u55hat1zck70krz/ecuflash_1444247_win_beta.exe?dl=0 I’ve had reports that the later versions of ECUFlash [...]

Australian Ralliart Colt Turbo

September 18, 2015 // 2 Comments

  The Australian version of the Ralliart Colt turbo was released for sale in August, 2006 and was sold through to late 2011. Unlike many other budget hot hatches featuring only body kit & a set of mags, this pocket rocket was the real deal.  It had the obligatory body kit (featuring some aggressive wheel flares and an evo-style bonnet vent!), a MIVEC twin cam intercooled turbo 1.5, Ralliart tuned suspension, bigger brakes and a beautiful set of recaros borrowed from its elder brother the Evo 8 MR. This is a good list, but there are a few other things that set the Ralliart Colt Turbo apart from the dressed-up hot hatches in its segment.  Starting with the bare chassis, they were separated out from the regular Colt [...]
