I'm asking lots af advise in here. :oops:

What mods seem to be the best way to enchance a 2700i Hilux's performance, with the following in mind?:

1) NO engine mods, like in removing even a single bolt from the engine
2) NO chips

............how good does a freeflow work on this engine, and which is best??

............is there some fine tuning that I can look at, like a MAF sensor or something, etc etc??

............. who is considered the Hilux Whisperer in Gauteng/Free State areas??

I'm happy with it as is - but just a leetle beet more power is always welcome. But I do'nt want to compromise on current torque characteristics, and reliability is obviously NO 1 priority.

Thanks - again!!

LOS hom soos hy is .... :mocking: :mocking:

Petri that is simply the best combination for just enough (well almost enough) power, decent fuel economy, and a 1 ton load capcity, and the earodynamics of a brick.


Decent driving in town, 115km/h on the open road and we got 8,5 km/l last year.

BUT, put foot and she gets thirsty ....


Jy kry manne wat jare met n 2,7 gaan reg kom .. en dan kry jy 4.0 manne .... ongelukkig nie veel om van te kies tussen in nie.


Maar dan, othnou die 2,7 is n VVTi motor - REV hom as jy meer krag nodig het ... en draai die petrol kraan oop ...

Hoor wat jy se Chris.

En ek is genuine GLAD nie 'n chip ou nie.

Free flow?? Dalk, maar dan wil ek weet hy gaan verskil maak, nie net aan die klank nie.

Die bakkie is ook stock standard, behalwe vir die OME suspensie en die LRT - ek wil nie rerig neuk aan die "characteristics" nie.

Kontak vir Hoppy (Allan Venter). Seker hy WEET wat werk met die waens.


Ek glo dat n freeflow sal help met "resposiveness" ... maar wonner net oor die petrol verbruik ....

Oom Petri, just a freeflow doesnt really do anything other than sound good, i fitted one to each 3 2.7's i had/have those bakkies just leave them standard and stick to 30" tyres for best performance.
'93 DC 2.2 4x4 33" BF KM2's 60mm lift, Fakawi Canvas Canopy. SOLD
'03 SC 2700i 4x4 32" BFG KM2, SAC stage 1, OME springs, Rancho 9000XL shocks, ARB, Escape Gear seatcovers - goes like a bomb!!!!!!!!!

Understand wanting to keep it standard. That said my 1999 2.7 started losing power on 450 000, after getting the diagnosis (running lean), I had SAC chip it. At that stage it was just the chip, and it was running smoothly again.
Had the head gas flowed and the other stage 2 conversions done by SAC at 525 000.
My Hilux is close to 600 000, and still runs beautifully!
The chip and SAC conversion was well worth it, just in driveability terms. So much acceleration in 5th gear! What a pleasure, and I am using the 31" tyres too.
Magic engines!!

Sell it and buy a 3L D4D... better fuel consumption and better performance stock standard.

Petri,

Uit my limited race-car experience, jy gaan op 'n petrol engine max 7kw gain. As jy chip, freeflow en head doen. Dis N/A. Om net te freeflow sonder om hom te tune is geld mors. Als gaan oor lugvloei, so as jy die intake, head en die downpipe met exhaust doen met n chip kyk jy na 7kw.

Best bet is los hom soos hy is of doen 'n engine transplant as jy meer krag soek.

Thanks Guys

Nee wat, ek los dit net so. Die Hilux lyk en ry soos wat hy moet - soos wat hy van sy mamma se tietie af gekom het.

Ek verloor sommer 7kg gewig, = 7 kW gained :dance1:

Petri,

Daar is min wat gaan help as jy feitlik niks wil doen nie.

Koop 'n ekstra pak geduld?

Gaan soek Autodok in Welkom op, oom Billy het altyd die 2.7's mooi grstel gekry en ook so rapsie ligter op petrol.

Ook so gedink Louis - groot pel Herman is daar by Diesel Electric. CO, en dalk sommer die MAF skoonmaak (het die 2,7 so iets??). Ek gebruik Spanjaard "Lectro Cleen" om die MAFs mee skoon te spuit, GROOT verskil aan my ou Patrol gemaak, en weer verlede week aan my GX EFI.
Ek glo ook aan die regte spark plugs - daai wat die owners manual jou se jy moet gebruik. NIKS anders nie.

Net so hier en daar 'n checkuppie gee, dan weet mens hys 100. Ek like dit nogal baie.

Jip jy kan. Die Air temp is in the intake pyp tussen die airboks en die intake manifold. DAn die Vacuum sensor as ek reg onthou net agter die boonste gedeelte van die intake manifold.

Ek het `n branch en freeflow by Powerflow laat op sit, en die revs tel vinniger op met dit. Die low down torque voel ook beter.
