Things are gearing up.
We are about to have plenty of stock of our HDJ79/HDJ78 Front mount kits and we have a lot of interest in these as they are a neat install and are very effective. These kits can be fitted with different options including the crossover delete for the FTE and any of the engines 1HZ, 1HD-T, 1HD-FT and 1HD-FTE.
Our 80 series kits are proving to be popular due to their excellent flow and a core that covers almost all requirements. These are in stock and, like above, we can support each of the engine installations as listed above.
Our V8 VDJ70 series kit is being updated soon to the Mk2. This kit has improved fitment and flow capability on the cold side pipework. We have seen systems boasting equal length runners and balance pipes to the two throttle bodies. While that may seem like the logical thing, if you checked inside the manifold between the throttles you will see it enters a single chamber. The reality is that if you chose to connect to only one throttle you would not see any impact up to a point, and we suspect that would be well above standard power. Our kit has a 2.5" feed directly into the end and a 3" feed crossing the engine.
The effort to try get the same flow through both throttles comes at a cost to flow capability or intercooler exposure. Our kits are front mounted prioritise intercooler exposure to cooling and next getting the air from the turbo to the manifold the most effectively.
We've seen some nice pictures of mounted intercoolers that look huge with the front stripped down but once reassembled we are still confident ours have the best exposure to airflow and therefore cooling.
Dont hesitate to contact us about our intercoolers or want to discuss other modifications you wish to make to your Landcruiser. We will do our best to help you make the right choice.
