Premium Hilux Mods & Upgrades

The Toyota Hilux is one of the most popular diesel vehicles currently on the market, offering a high factory torque compared to other models and a high degree of comfort.

However, our team knows that there is always room for improvement! Our performance upgrades and tuning services are designed for a smooth linear gain in torque, with the ability to scale to allow your Hilux to rival some of its biggest competitors.

A custom ECU remap on the Toyota Hilux can achieve considerable gains in torque while still retaining all factory components. On average, we see about 40-50% gains in torque. More torque can be achieved by having our diesel performance tuners install additional performance ugprades, such as an upgraded turbo, exhaust system and intercooler.

Factory vs Remap Figures

From the factory, your 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).

Based off of our baseline upgrades, we see a sizeable increase to 500nm of torque and 175hp for a Hilux on average.

Just Autos has a range of performance exhaust system upgrades 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.

When tuning the Hilux engine, the factory-fitted exhaust system can be upgraded while carrying out an ECU remap. To see if your vehicle needs an exhaust fitted, please give our team a ring to discuss your needs.

Injector upgrades for your Hilux can be custom-built in-house to achieve the fuelling required when upgrading the performance of your Toyota Hilux. Most models will require upgraded injectors when upgrading the vehicle factory-fitted turbo.

Our custom-built diesel fuel injectors are designed to achieve the best fuel to air mixture. These types of upgrades are often non-optional when changing the factory-fitted turbo.

Some airboxes from the factory are capable of providing the necessary airflow for most aftermarket upgrades and filtration requirements, but when upgrading turbochargers as well, some Toyota owners will need to reconsider their airflow efficiency.

Just Autos advise our customers to retain their factory filters when upgrading their airbox. This is because servicing aftermarket filters can be tricky, and not doing a thorough job means a risk to your engine. 

Ideal for the Hilux D4D models.

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 D4D, we would recommend ringing one of our highly qualified staff members to help guide you through what’s best for your unique Hilux.

The A340 transmission and A750 transmission that the Toyota Hilux comes factory-fitted with is known to be quite an indecisive gearbox and hesitates between gear changes. Just Autos has a range of upgraded valve bodies which can increase internal pressure inside the gearbox to not only help with shifting between gears but which also reduce slip between gear changes to improve reliability.

The factory-fitted clutch on the Hilux engine is known to fail and slip, but when implementing any of Just Autos custom upgrade packages, the factory clutch will need to be upgraded.

We recommend fitting an NPC heavy duty clutch to handle the added gain in torque.

Why Upgrade Your Hilux?

As any Toyota Hilux owner knows, these vehicles were built for performance. With their rugged, durable diesel engines, superior towing power, and all the bells and whistles Toyota is known and loved for, the Toyota Hilux is a popular vehicle that can give its owners years of pure driving pleasure.

But, as any Hilux owner might admit, Toyota’s Hilux models usually come significantly under-tuned from the factory. To cater to their ever-growing market, Toyota applies generalised industry standards to their engines to ensure any type of driver can own a Hilux. From a power perspective, this leaves much to be desired – but also so much opportunity for more!

At Just Autos, we only use high-quality parts and accessories. Our diesel performance upgrades are tailored to your specific Hilux model and driving needs, ensuring the best possible results for your vehicle.

Contact us today to learn more about our Hilux performance mods and upgrades. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to discuss your options and help you choose the best upgrades for your Hilux.
