TOYOTA LC VDJ79 DUAL CAB TWIN 3"
Replacing the standard exhaust with a 3″ version has a number of benefits, including reduced turbo lag, improved peak power and torque, greater responsiveness, and reduced fuel consumption. On average, we see a 15% gain in power, and around 1 – 2L per 100km reduction in fuel consumption (with a full exhaust and tune).
The full 3″ exhaust is consistently rated as the best performance modification to carry out on the V8 Landcruiser, not only due to the glorious sound it releases but also for the massive improvement in driveability. Many dealers are fitting them on brand new vehicles – don’t spend another day without one!
DPF BACK OR TURBO BACK?
The latest model Landcruiser comes from the factory with a Diesel Particulate Filter. These are an emissions device designed to control the amount of soot emitted from the exhaust system. We have two options in our exhaust range – DPF back (similar to a “cat back” system on a petrol vehicle), or turbo back (replacing the entire factory exhaust system, including the DPF).
The turbo back system does require a recalibration of the vehicle’s Engine Control Unit (ECU) to remove certain functions associated with the DPF system. This is intended for off-road or race use only.
