4X4 Performance Upgrades and Tuning

Reveal your 4X4’s true potential with performance upgrades from Just Autos.

Just Autos are your local Toyota 4X4 performance experts, offering a variety of 4×4 mods, towing and touring upgrades, and diesel performance upgrade kits. Most modifications fitted to your vehicle will only help in certain off-road driving situations, but our experts can help you develop a performance setup that’s ideal for on-road towing and touring as well as off-road 4WD fun!

We recommend trying to avoid extensive modifications, which means custom parts replacing factory standard components when out touring. When installing our performance packages into any Toyota engine, we use factory-location components, which means there are fewer areas for failure and it is easier to find parts if something were to ever go wrong. All of our performance upgrades are factory replacement parts that don’t require any custom fabrication, which reduces/eliminates the chance for failures or fitment issues.

However, with our expertise and wide range of upgrade options, we’re sure to have something suitable for your specific off-road or towing/touring driving requirements. Chat to the team to book your Toyota into our workshop!

Should You Tune Your 4WD/4X4?

The cost of owning a vehicle is ever increasing.  With petrol and diesel skyrocketing in price over the years, being able to tune and optimise your 4 wheel-drive vehicles to its full potential, makes a lot of sense. Thus, 4WD tuning can save you a lot of money!

With over 10 years of 4WD tuning, at Just Autos we can carry out 4WD tuning on your vehicle while still retaining a high amount of reliability. We are one of the only companies in Australia who have access to nearly ever tuning module and tool on the market. As a result, we can guide you to what is best suited for your needs and requirements! Our staff are dedicated to listening to your needs for your vehicle and will always give you an honest and professional opinion.

Call Just Autos to discuss your needs today!

Our 4WD tuning times differ between vehicles and current setups. Some may take a few hours; some may take days. A rule of thumb to work off of, when booking your vehicle in, is to leave it with us for the day.

–              Dyno tune only (1 day)

–              Clutch & dyno tune (2 days)

–              Full packages (1 week)

Every vehicle that goes onto the dyno will get a dyno sheet. However, some vehicles may not be able to be run up in standard form after some work is carried out. We will do everything we can to make sure before and after results are given. Unsure about what your readout numbers mean? Check out our video on Dyno numbers and what is real to find out more!


4WD tuning can be carried out at any time in the life of the vehicle as long as it’s in reasonable condition. The ideal tuning time is anywhere between 0 -500,000km. If your vehicle has been taken care of correctly and maintained in a manner where it is still reliable, then there would be no hesitation in doing a 4WD tuning.  You can even tune your vehicle straight off the showroom floor.

4x4 Performance Experts Offering a Range of Upgrade Options

4WD Tuning uses a dyno or dynameter, which is a tool used for measuring the power, torque and rotational speed of your engine. The dyno simulates different road conditions in a controlled environment which gives the operator the ability to monitor a range of different variables, from air/fuel ratios to boost levels, to carry out your tune in a safe manner.

Our dyno technicians, doing your 4WD tuning, can diagnose and assess various engine functions and problems in order to gauge if any improvements can be made. Using this information, they can adjust various settings to improve your engine and bring it to its full potential.

  • We connect your vehicle to our test equipment which reads:
    • Air fuel ratio
    • Boost pressure
    • Tacho speed & RPM
    • & Much more
  • Your vehicle is run on our 4WD dyno. This tool simulates various road conditions so our technicians can do a readout of your vehicle’s performance prior to tuning, allowing for a comparison of the before and after results.
  • Our technicians will adjust and change various components of your vehicle to allow for optimal performance.
  • Your vehicle is run on the dyno again giving us an after-tune read out to compare results to.

There is no ideal vehicle for touring, but there will be a vehicle best suited for your needs, the weight you’re towing, and your budget. If you have any questions about what vehicle you should buy for your needs book in a time to have a conversation with one of our staff members.

Just Autos can assist with a range of useful upgrades to bolster the performance of your 4×4 when driving off-road, including:

  • Transmission converter lock-up kits
  • Turbo and injector upgrades 
  • Clutch upgrades 
  • Airbox and intercooler upgrades


Other modifications you can consider are:

  • Lift kit
  • Bull bar
  • Long range fuel tank
  • All terrain or mud terrain tires
  • Paper maps or Hema maps
  • Snorkel
  • Awning
  • Roof rack and/or canopy
  • Electric Winch (use it once and it pays for itself)
  • Dual batteries
  • Fridge/freezer (requires dual battery set up)
  • Roof top tent
  • On board water tank
  • UHF radio
  • Extra spare wheel (6 wheels in total)
  • Solar panel
  • Bash plates (under body protection)

Torque converter lock-up kits are fitted to Toyotas with automatic transmissions to help improve fuel economy and transmission temperatures. When a vehicle’s torque converter is “flaring” to generate torque, it’s also generating a lot of heat which can cause the vehicle’s automatic transmission light to come on when towing and put the vehicle into limp mode.

With a torque converter lock-up kit fitted, we can improve the efficiency of the transmission and keep temperatures down- while also gaining a nice driving experience!

Toyota 4x4 Performance Services

Toyota 200 Series Land Cruiser

The 200 Series Land Cruiser platform is one of Australia’s most sought-after tow vehicles with high outputs in torque, high comfort, and a 6-speed automatic transmission.

We offer upgrades designed for touring and towing, which means improving the drivability and torque while improving efficiency as well. We also have upgrades for the die-hard performance enthusiast with packages capable of making over 350hp at all 4 wheels and over 1000nm of torque. DPF options are available.

Toyota 70 Series Land Cruiser

Anyone who owns a 70 Series Toyota Land Cruiser knows that the power output is something to be worked on – with only 145hp and 350nm at the wheels, it’s no better than the majority of light vehicle 4wds on the market with smaller capacity engines.

At Just Autos we can change that disappointing output figure into something that can be capable of towing heavy loads without even stressing the engine, with base packages producing over 200hp and 650nm at the wheels we have every option covered for your 70 series. DPF options are available.

Toyota Hilux and Prado Tuning & Upgrades

With over 15 years of experience and knowledge on the Toyota platform, we have multiple options for the 3.0 1KD and also the 2.8 1GD Prado and Hilux engines.

We have packages available for every person in mind, with a full touring setup to improve towing efficiency and torque, to a full package capable of making well into the 300hp. DPF options are available.
