    And Silverton had a real looker of an FJ in this morning.

    Benson, what can I do for a Hilux D4D? It just seems sluggish compared to when I got it a few years ago. I also think it is heavier on fuel. Thanks

    On the 3.0l D4-d we do some real magic.
    If auto we also play a little there.
    And on the ecu we open up some pent up frustrations with 100 extra Nm's and a healthy 25 kW's

    You are welcome to get in contact with Mike in Silverton, he will be happy to sort you out.

    Pretty sad to see that you offer this.

    Power increase , fuel consumption decrease and EGR delete I totally get.

    But every second GTI and BMW has a pops and bang tune . Its totally unnecessary. Just put a sticker on the back telling everyone that you a small .....

    Regarding the pops and bangs with the Mustang, will this not cause exhaust/manifold damage over time since these are as I understand small explosions?

    It would be the diesel.
    I do not work on the 6.1l Hemi at all.
    But the 5.7 I will definitely take on.

    Like those happening in the combustion chamber.

    Just to come back to this.
    This is very dependant on how extreme you go, as with anything.

    Our policy still stands, safe and reliable before anything else.

    Since we are not going for gun-shots and flames, but just the very distinctive sound of the pop and bang we are still working within the limits.

    This is also why we don't do this for small engine like 1.4's and 1.6's. As you have to push a little to get anything noticeable to happen.

    The V6's and V8's on the other hand, is really fun to work with.

    What can you do with a 2.4 GD6 Hilux for a bit more power and maybe better fuel consumption? Hilux is a manual.
    Before you judge a person, first walk a mile in their shoes.

    Better low down power! More comfortable at highway speeds.
    Better responsiveness drom the throttle.

    Consumption is still dependant on the weight of your right foot.
