    Ek sal bitter graag n D9 CAT vir hulle wil vat vir n "tune". Maar ek wil homself in hulle workshop intrek. Daai ouens is nie bevoeg om die penlights in n tv remote te ruil nie.

    2.2 in for a checkup and a full service incl EGR cooler and valve delete, Intake clean and Glow plugs.
    And I love filling the diesel filter housing with Diesel Purge after a clean. Gives the injectors a nice clean on the start. Attachment 720158Attachment 720159Click image for larger version.

    We did some aditional development on the 2.8 hilux auto box.
    This is with a stage 1+ remap as well.
    Boost is good and safe, and the rpm at kept in the maximum torque range on full throttle
    Very happy with the results.

    Hello Benson.

    The other "gearbox not happy" thread got seriously derailed. Eish.

    Keen for a retune if you've sorted out that 1st gear niggle.

    I'm in the Overstrand for a week or two and then on my way home I can stop on at our children's home at the Strand.

    Get in touch on WhatsApp on Monday or later.
    Also, would like to pry your brain about the EGR blank and exhaust side of the engine.

    Yeah I noticed...
    You are more than welcome to give me a shout. We've done a lot more digging into these boxes. And dare I say, we can now make magic happen. Especially on the 2.8.
    We are will start playing Little more on the 2.4 when get back from Bloem end of next week..

    Sorry for the late response but I haven't honestly driven the FJ,until just now..

    With the pedal box now not connected it took a while to get used to pulling away,it used to be very abrupt.Now it's softer(better)
    But with the same power as before.Will be great for rock crawling-I used to battle with one foot on the brake

    Putting foot on the loud pedal it really shows,when I get to 3500RPM it feels like a turbo kicks in,the free flow exhaust opens up and it roars.
    The induction noise is very powerful,I'm sure I could fit a bigger snorkel

    What was important to me was travelling at 110 to 120,I drive in convoy a lot and thats the speed we stick to as we also tow,
    it used to be a flat spot for me,if I wanted to go for it I had to change down,now(without a trailer)I got instant response.

    That was the best road test I could do,I really wanted to open up in all gears,but the traffic was a bit dense.
    I'm taking it to Parys soon so I should get the opportunity to open up

    Overall I'm very happy with the re mapping,wish I had done it sooner

    Yeah, we really really don't like pedal boosters..

    Glad you are happy. And yes it will overall be a much more drivabke rig!

    Enjoy and keep us in the loop.

    Hi Benson

    So we have a 2013 Mitsu Paj Sport 2.5 with about 150km on the clock, car runs fine, no issues, what can you do for me? Given the age of the vehicle i am sure it could use some TLC and maybe less turbo lag. It is a third vehicle so willing to take a chance even though i always swor no maps etc....

    I am in Benoni BTW

    Have a good day!

    I am sure Benson can help.

    I had mine mapped with 170k on the clock with another tuner, and the difference is unbelievable. Feels like a new car

    Awesome vehicles to work on. And yes we would definitely sort that out for you.
    You are welcome to get in contact with Ramlan.
    I would suggest we look at blanking the egr as well.
