About the 2024 Toyota Landcruiser 2.8L 1GD-FTV

The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series, with a 2.8L 1GD-FTV engine and 6-speed automatic transmission, is part of Toyota's iconic off-road vehicle lineup. The Land Cruiser 70 Series 2.8L variant is powered by a 1GD-FTV engine. This is a turbocharged Diesel engine known for its reliability, durability, and fuel efficiency, making it well-suited for both on-road and off-road driving.

The Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission offers smooth and efficient gear shifts, enhancing the overall driving experience. It is designed to handle the demands of highway cruising and challenging off-road terrain.

The Land Cruiser 70 Series has a legendary reputation for its off-road capabilities. With features like high ground clearance, a robust four-wheel-drive system, and off-road-focused suspension, this vehicle is designed to tackle rough terrain with ease. While the Land Cruiser 70 Series is primarily designed for rugged performance, it also includes modern safety and technology features. This may include advanced driver-assistance systems, such as traction control, stability control, and possibly even features like lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control, depending on the specific trim level and options.

Custom Dyno Tuning Toyota Landcruiser 2.8L 1GD-FTV

Your Toyota Landcruiser VDJ70 with 1GD-FTV 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, making simple overtaking a big problem. So, applying more throttle is a natural reaction when they think their Toyota Landcruiser VDJ70 with 1GD-FTV 2.8L is incapable of performing as they expect.

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.

Toyota Landcruiser 2.8L 1GD-FTV ECU Remap

Diesel Tuning Brisbane ECU Remap and custom dyno tune typically gives your Toyota Landcruiser VDJ70 with 1GD-FTV 2.8L an additional 25 Horsepower of power and 20% extra torque with an 80Nm gain over stock, resulting in a much more responsive and safer car for towing. Combining the engine ECU Remap with custom Transmission Tuning (TCM Tuning) elevates your driving experience and car's performance even more by reducing torque converter flare, eliminating indecisive gear shifts, and extending the usable torque band of your Toyota Landcruiser VDJ70 with 1GD-FTV 2.8L for towing. We can also change the tyre size calibration to correct the speedometer for different tyre sizes in the ECU file. This is completed in our racing-level facility.

Toyota Landcruiser 2.8L 1GD-FTV Performance Modifications

To add a more pronounced exhaust note, fitting a TOYOTA TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 70 SERIES V8 PERFORMANCE EXHAUST from the DPF-Back also enhances response and exhaust note. See more about performance exhausts for your Toyota Landcruiser VDJ70 with 1GD-FTV 2.8L by clicking here.

Another option for upgrading the turbocharger is to install a turbocharger upgrade kit that includes a larger turbocharger, an upgraded intercooler, and other supporting components such as VDJ79 upgraded fuel injectors and a VDJ70 fuel pump upgrade. These kits are typically designed to provide significant power gains and can be customized to suit specific performance goals.


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:

  • Custom Dyno Tune (ECU Remap) or ECU Flash

A Stage 2 Diesel tuning package typically involves more comprehensive modifications to the engine and other performance components compared to a Stage 1 upgrade. This can encompass additional enhancements to the intake and exhaust systems, as well as upgrades to the intercooler.

Opting for a Stage 2 tuning package brings a notable increase in power and torque output when compared to a Stage 1 package. 

It’s crucial to bear in mind that a Stage 2 tuning package can have a substantial impact on your vehicle’s emissions. Thus, selecting a reputable and experienced tuning company is essential to receive a custom-tailored package that aligns with your specific goals and requirements.

If you’re contemplating a Stage 2 tuning package, a thorough consultation with the tuning company is recommended to discuss potential risks and benefits, as well as any necessary modifications for optimal performance and reliability. Additionally, it’s vital to ensure that all modifications comply with local emissions regulations and safety standards.

Stage 2 Package Inclusions:

  • Custom Dyno Tune (ECU Remap)
  • Intake/Intercooler Upgrade
  • Exhaust Upgrade

A Stage 3 Diesel tuning package typically involves substantial modifications to enhance overall performance. This may include upgrading critical components such as the turbocharger, intercooler, fuel system, intake and exhaust system, and potentially other upgrades depending on the requirements. Additionally, upgraded drivetrain and suspension components are often necessary to handle the increased power output.

Opting for a Stage 3 tuning package brings a significant boost in power and torque compared to Stage 1 or Stage 2 upgrades. However, it’s important to note that this level of modification is not recommended for daily drivers, as it may lead to reduced reliability, increased emissions, and decreased drivability in traffic.

It’s crucial to be aware that a Stage 3 tuning package may potentially void the factory warranty and could be deemed illegal in certain jurisdictions. Hence, selecting a reputable and experienced tuning company becomes essential to receive a customized package meeting specific goals and requirements, all while ensuring optimal performance and reliability.
