add a chip ... loose the warrantee ...

These new motors are already very powerful. They do extract a lot of power from smaller capacity engines ...


If you "need" more power then you still have time to order a vehicle that actually suits your "needs". :siffler:



All that said, there are a few constants in life .... and men and racing chips certainly are high on the list of constants. :twisted: :twisted:


IF you do go this route - please do yourself the favour to go to a proper tuning shop, get a programmable unit, then let them dyno the Fortuner and set up an engine map that actually DO work optimally for your particular engine at your altitude etc ...

What Chris said. :thumbup: :thumbup: I had a RaceChip in my D4D and it worked well. Well enough to bugger my clutch, and to let the "Check Engine" light come on a few times in traffic. Dont get me wrong, that D4D pulled like a freight train, but I had that constant worry in the back of my head that I was going to melt the engine. :shock2:

Anyway, it is chipless at the moment, but as soon as I got the clutch sorted, (hopefully in the next 2 weeks) and cut all the restrictions out of the exhaust, I will take it to KSD for a Q4 chip.. :twisted: :twisted:

Unichip - the only chip that get programmed for YOUR vehicle.

All other plug-in chips are a compromise. General increases and thumb suck values.

Buy local, buy Unichip!!

Read this and decide for yourself:

Rumour has it that with a Unichip new GD6's runs at around 175kw!!
'02 KZ 'Lux. Cooled. Chipped. Onca'd. Cherished!

If you are a diesel fan, raise your hand.
If you aren't raising your hand, raise your standards!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.
