Dude!!, that's a huge gain in torque!., Are you still getting similar consumption figures though?., also is it a piggyback unit cause my revos only got 3k on the clock, TSA gaurantee and all that , but I want to need it! Cost fitted?

This Hilux only had 1k on the clock when chipped. It gets about 1.5km/l more after the chip in the Venom performance map. He will test consumption map aftet a few tanks.. first he is enjoying the power.

Yes its a piggy back with 5 map switch and all 5 custom tuned maps you look at about R8750. Reverts back to standard in 5 minutes.

Hilux is a beast!

Sounds swt, but about double what I want to pay!, do you really use the other 4 maps?

Well this guy wanted optimal for all conditions. I have the same setup in my fortuner and its brilliant. However if you only have the one map its tuned for consumption on partial throttle and performance when the accelerator is more than 50% open. So its better in everyway.

You can always add the map switch and additional maps at a later stage if you wanted to. The map switch is R850 and additional maps are R500 more. So not taking it is only a R1350 saving. The expensive part is the piggy back harness to avoid cutting wires.

I challange any plug and play chip to beat this set up.

I've heard great things about Koos Swanepoel in Cape town. If you are worried about warranty i would not remove the cat. The gains from removing a new cat is not worth the risk. A car with 120k on the clock will see a worthwhile gain from removing the cat. If you build a down pipe however you will see a gain in power.

But chip alone you will be happy trust me. I drove in this 2.8 again today and its wild.
