Custom Dyno Tuning for Toyota Landcruiser HDJ100 HDJ105

Your TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 100/105 SERIES 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 LANDCRUISER 100/105 SERIES is incapable of performing 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.

Diesel Tuning Brisbane Tailored Tuning gives your TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 100/105 SERIES an additional 30 Horsepower of power and 15% of extra torque with a 100NM gain over stock, resulting in a much more responsive and safer car.
