Toyota Hilux 2.8 Upgrades: The Toyota Hilux uses the Toyota 2.8 litre, four-cylinder diesel engine with a factory average power of 320 nm of torque and only 125hp at the wheels. This leaves a lot to be desired for the power of your diesel UTE.
This can be resolved with Just Auto’s Toyota Hilux 2.8 Upgrade packages, which can be tailored to your performance needs.
This package can vary depending on model and transmission fitted to the vehicle but, on average, you will see around a 50% gain in torque at the wheels. Hiluxs with a manual transmission will need a heavy-duty clutch replacement, while an automatic transmission model will benefit from having an upgraded valve body to help with shifting between gears, which is indecisive in the A350 and A750 transmission fitted to the Hilux models.
This package is designed for the tourer in mind. A grunter turbo and 30% injectors low down torque is what this package is designed for. Usual figures start pushing around 220hp and 550nm, which starts to rival the torque and power of some of the larger Toyota models.
This package expands on the foundations of Package 2 and targets car owners looking to get as much power out of their vehicle as possible. This package usually includes stage 2 or 3 GTurbo, depending on transmission fitted to the vehicle and with power output figure on average around 250hp & 650-700nm.
Just Autos are the experts when it comes to enhancing the Toyota Hilux 2.8’s performance. Apart from our performance package upgrades, we offer a range of other upgrades and replacements that can improve your vehicle’s performance – no matter the terrain.
A custom ECU remap on the 2.8 Toyota Hilux can achieve considerable gains in torque while still retaining all factory components and, on average, should deliver around 20-30% gains in torque. More torque can be achieved by upgrading to a custom package, which could include upgraded turbos and intercoolers.
From the factory at Toyota, your 2.8 diesel Toyota Hilux produces on average 320 nm of torque and 125hp at the wheels. This is based on our experience when having Hiluxs on our dyno (do note results vary in AWD).
ECU Remap Improvement
Based off of Package 2, we see a sizeable increase to 450nm of torque and 175hp for your Hilux on average.
Just Autos has a range up upgraded exhaust systems including full systems in stainless steel with multiple configurations. We advise giving us a ring to see what exhaust system would best suit your needs. 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.
The factory fitted turbo on the Toyota Hilux 2.8 quickly becomes inefficient when carrying out an ECU remap and custom package. G Turbo has a range of bolt-on upgrades for the Toyota Hilux 2.8 engine.
