Straight from the factory, the Toyota Hilux and Prado 2.8 models provide underwhelming performance figures – but it’s nothing Just Autos’ custom ECU tuning can’t fix! Just Autos also provide various upgrade options for both the Toyota Hilux 2.8 and the Prado 2.8 that deliver torque boosts of over 100% without sacrificing reliability or other performance aspects like fuel consumption. This means impressive 0-100km/h times of 10 seconds, and a top speed of 185km/h for the Prado 2.8 models; and even superior acceleration for the Hilux 2.8 models!
The Toyota 2.8 Prado and Hilux models have loads of power – if only the engines hadn’t been neutered to provide miserable returns at stock form while emitting far too much pollution! You can get rid of that with Just Autos’ custom ECU tuning and performance packages for this model, which increases torque without compromising on fuel consumption or emissions levels – so you can enjoy your SUV’s power to its fullest extent, without putting your foot down just for the sake of saving fuel!
A custom ECU remap on the 2.8 Hilux and Prado models can achieve considerable gains in torque while still retaining all factory components. On average, we should see around 20-30% gains in torque. Even more torque can be achieved by upgrading to a custom package, which could include upgraded turbos and intercoolers.
320nm & 125hp at the wheels (on average based on a stock standard Hilux, Prado figure will vary in AWD)
450nm & 175hp at the wheels (on average based on Package 2)
Performance tuning removes the limitations set by the manufacturer, and allows for better torque and power outputs from your engine.
Custom tuning or replacing parts with performance parts can greatly reduce your fuel consumption and improve your mileage.
We have a large variety of part upgrade choices, for a selection of different vehicle makes and models. Get in touch for more info or visit our workshop.
Package 1 for the Hilux/Prado can vary depending on the model and transmission fitted to vehicle. On average, we will see around a 20% gain in torque at the wheels with just a custom ECU remap while retaining all factory components.
Package 2 for the 2.8 Hilux/Prado offers a full 3” exhaust system coupled with a Just Autos custom ECU remap, which is capable of producing another 30-40% torque gain and, on average, around 175hp and 450nm at the wheels.
Package 3 is custom-designed to suit your needs and includes a G turbo upgrade, custom injectors, and added options to fit intercoolers, air boxes and other small upgrades to try and get the most efficiency out of your package of choice. With kits coming in around 260hp and 700nm, the little 2.8 engine is capable of making some big numbers while still being highly reliable.
The Hilux and Prado models ire some of the most popular vehicles offered by Toyota, providing a high factory torque compared to other models and a high degree of comfort. However, there is always room for improvement with packages designed for a smooth linear gain in torque, to packages capable of rivaling the some of their biggest competitors.
There are many different performance upgrades available for either model, and different parts can be upgraded for performance enhancement, depending on your needs and requirements. However, it is important to decide what you want upgraded and what would work best for you and your vehicle. This decision should never be taken lightly because tuning your vehicle may change your vehicle’s characteristics considerably. Thus, expert performance advice is essential. At Just Autos, we strive to provide you with all the facts and information needed to make the best performance upgrade decisions for you and your Hilux/Prado.
Replacing a standard exhaust system with a 3” Just Autos Performance Exhaust will increase torque, power and economy by achieving a higher flow. This means that there is a less restrictive exhaust system, full mandrel bends, a high-flow catalytic converter, and a straight-through muffler.
The Just Autos exhaust reduces the temperature of the exhaust gasses, allowing the turbo and engine to operate at a cooler temperature. All exhausts come with multiple options for catalytic converters and straight through mufflers to achieve your desired exhaust note.
G Turbo can supply us with a factory bolt, on-location turbo that is capable of producing high amounts of torque and power while also retaining factory reliability. We can also provide multiple turbo options depending on individual application and customer needs.
If you have any queries regarding your turbo upgrade for your Hilux or Prado, we would recommend ringing one of our highly qualified staff members to help guide you through what’s best for your Hilux/Prado.
