The Toyota Hilux and Prado 3.0 come with disappointing power figures from the factory, but they’re nothing Just Autos’ custom ECU tuning can’t fix! Just Autos also offers a range of enhancements for both the Toyota Hilux 3.0 and Prado 3.0 that provide massive torque increases while maintaining dependability and other performance aspects like fuel consumption.
The Toyota 3.0 Prado and Hilux vehicles have a lot of power, but the engines were de-tuned and provide poor returns at stock form while emitting far too much pollution! You can fix that problem with Just Autos’ custom ECU tuning and performance packages for these models, which bolsters torque without sacrificing fuel efficiency or emissions levels – so you can fully utilize your SUV’s power, without having to put your foot down just for the sake of saving money!
A custom ECU remap on the 3.0 platform can achieve considerable gains in torque while still retaining all factory components and, on average, should provide around 40-50% gains in torque. Even more torque can be achieved by upgrading to a custom package, which could include upgraded turbos, Injectors, intercoolers, and much more.
300nm & 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 1)
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 model and the transmission type fitted to the vehicle, but on average we will see around a 50% gain in torque at the wheels. Hilux and Prado models with manual transmissions will need a heavy-duty clutch replacement, while the automatic transmission models will benefit from having an upgraded valve body to help with shifting between gears, which can be indecisive in the A350 and A750 transmissions models.
Package 3 is similar to Package 2, but is ideal for a Toyota owner really looking to put the pedal to the metal – a driver that doesn’t just want their engines to perform, they want them to exceed expectation! The package usually includes a stage 2 or 3 G Turbo, depending on transmission fitted to the vehicle, and provides power output figures of, on average, around 250hp and 650-700nm.
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.
When tuning the 3.0 engine in factory form, the exhaust system fitted to the vehicle from stock can be utilised while carrying out an ECU remap. To see if your 3.0 needs an exhaust fitted please give our team a ring to discuss your needs.
30% Injectors can be custom-built, in-house to achieve the fuelling required when upgrading the vehicle to your desired outcome. Most models will require 30% injectors when upgrading the vehicle factory fitted turbo.
The A340 transmission and A750 transmissions in the Hilux and Prado are known to be quite indecisive gearboxes that hesitate between gear changes.
Just Autos has a range upgraded valve bodies which can increase internal pressure inside the gearbox, which will not only help with shifting between gears but can also reduce slip between gear changes to improve reliability.
The clutch fitted from factory on the 3.0 engine is know to fail and slip in standard form, but when carrying out any of Just Autos’ custom packages, the factory clutch will need to be upgraded.
We recommend fitting an NPOC heavy-duty clutch to handle the added gain in torque.
