Custom Dyno Tuning Toyota Hilux

Your Toyota 2016-2020 Hilux 2.8L 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. Applying full-throttle is a natural reaction when they think their Toyota 2016-2020 Hilux 2.8L cannot perform as expected.

This is because a diesel engine is meant to deliver a strong "torque" delivery and towing force at middle engine speed ranges (2000-4000rpm). 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.
