Good info there mate.
Wonder if there is any design difference between alloy and steel bar?

Bought Enerdrive 200amps lithium, 40amps DCDC Enerdrive charger/solar controller and 60amps AC Enerdrive charger.
Should be able to stay offgrid indefinitely regarding power usage now.

Just returned from dealership.
Left the car this morning at 0800 hrs and they called me at 1130hrs to advise all is replaced.
That was quick. Hopefully they did it properly ...

What was replaced:
- New DPF
- New 5th injector
- New 5th injector housing
- New gaskets

Here is the photo of the old 5th injector housing

And here is the new one:

I noticed couple differences from outside if anyone wants to compare
- left of that housing bolt it says "8" on the old one, on the new one it says "10"
- on the new one it says on top of it "D", whilst the old one does not have that "D".


These are all parts used:

Interestingly after I picked up the car, I literally drove out of dealership in to neighboring carpark, connected OBD and TorquePro and DPF was showing at 42% already?!

I checked with service and they explained it will need couple of regenerations for all to sync and reset ... whatever that means. Hopefully someone will be able to explain it here.

Also, I could smell fresh smell of burn all around the car, even after driving it home for about 10 kms.

Fingers crossed now, and hopefully it is all sorted.

Local dealership was nothing but great once the issue was acknowledged by Toyota techs. But it took me number of complaints and finally a video recording to get the things happening.

A forum member recognised my car and introduced himself to me this morning whilst waiting for service gate to be opened, which was quite nice. Nice to meet you J. :D

Hows the Unichip going? Better fuel economy?
Are you worried about the warranty? I presume you take the chip out when taking the car to Toyota?

They cant see the chip on diagnostic tools as it piggybacks to ECU ... I just disable it. I had one of the two buttons (eco and power) programmed to disable it.
The actual two boxes are hidden inside of dashboard and toyota mechanics absolutely have no business dismantling dashboard for whatever part of regular service.
If I wanted to take the boxes out it would take me about 10 minutes.

Fuel usage stayed the same, but power and torque are noticeably better.

Is your unichip the Unichip Q4 or the Uni-X?
I think the Uni-X is even smaller and can be moved to other vehicles too

I bought new BFG KM3 in 265/70-17 and can confirm that they do not rub on full lock forward or reverse or under flex.
Car has genuine Toyota bullbar and 2 inch lift.

That's good to know. Have you made any adjustments to the LCA?

No mate. Checked by suspension specialist and reputable tyre dealership, both of whom I have been dealing for the last 15 years and both say not needed.

I'll post some photos next week.
