When it comes to diesel performance, the Hilux is one of the best vehicles on the market. That’s why we’ve partnered with some of the most renowned brands in the business to bring you a range of high-impact performance upgrades, including exhaust upgrades, turbo upgrades, intercooler upgrades, and more.

Looking for the best diesel performance upgrades for your Toyota Hilux? Here are our top 5!

Top 5 Diesel Performance Upgrades for the Toyota Hilux - Toyota Hilux at Just Autos

1. Upgrade Your Toyota Hilux Exhaust System

If you’re looking for better performance, sound, and fuel economy, an aftermarket exhaust system is one of the best upgrades you can make to your Hilux. We’ve partnered with leading manufacturers of diesel performance exhausts, to bring you a range of options that will take your Hilux’s performance to the next level.

Our aftermarket performance Toyota Hilux exhaust systems are designed to improve airflow and reduce backpressure, giving you more power, better fuel economy, and a great sound. They’re also built tough to withstand the harshest conditions, so you can take your Hilux anywhere with confidence.

Just Autos has a range of upgraded exhaust systems including full systems in stainless steel with multiple configurations. The mandrel-bent design, with our straight-through muffler, eliminates the restrictive factory muffler and exhaust piping, offering a higher flowing, and a deep throaty exhaust note with no annoying drone inside the cab.


2. Upgrade Your Toyota Hilux Turbocharger

A turbocharger upgrade is one of the most popular diesel performance upgrades for the Toyota Hilux. That’s because it’s an easy way to get more power and torque without compromising on reliability or fuel economy.

Just Autos are proud to offer a range of high-quality turbocharger kits from G-Turbo, as well as a selection of genuine and factory replacement turbos. These kits are designed to fit a range of Hilux models, including the N70, N80, and D40.

The G-Turbo kits come with everything you need for a quick and easy install, including your new high-flow turbocharger. When upgrading your Hilux’s turbocharger, our team pairs these kits with our range of intercoolers, piping kits, fittings, clamps, hoses, and all the other necessary hardware.

G-Turbo also offers a range of upgrades for the Hilux’s factory turbocharger. These include upgraded compressor wheels and turbine wheels made from high-strength materials like billet aluminum and stainless steel. The result is increased airflow and more power with no sacrifice in reliability or fuel economy.

3. Install an Intercooler Upgrade Kit

An intercooler is a vital part of any turbocharged diesel engine, and the Toyota Hilux is no exception. The intercooler helps to cool the air that’s been compressed by the turbocharger, preventing it from overheating and losing power.

Just Autos offers a range of high-performance intercoolers from leading brands like PSICO, PWR, and Process West. These intercoolers are designed to improve airflow and cooling efficiency, giving you more power and better fuel economy.

We also offer a range of intercooler upgrade kits that come with everything you need for a quick and easy install, including intercoolers, piping kits, hoses, clamps, gaskets, and all the necessary hardware.

Just Autos’ performance upgrades will ramp up your Toyota’s performance and driveability. Our towing and touring upgrades include heavy duty clutch upgrades, transmission lock-up kits from our partner Richards Auto Electrical, and transmission coolers from PWR and HPD. Upgrading these factory components in your Hilux helps keep your engine safe under duress and helps your diesel perform better under strain or when carrying loads – exactly what we love our Hiluxs for!
