Did you upgrade the wiring and fuse too? From memory Toyzx / Luke did his last year if you’re looking for some details.

Against all of my wisdom and previous advice, my 1kd is now good for 162kw and 490mn.

I'm selling it soon so I thought I'd see what its like - first impressions are its not terribly quicker on 33in tyres with stock gearing, but its much happier to spin the inside wheel around corners. It will definately be quicker when I put the 30in tyres back on it.

Yes... a tune :roll:

I still don't think it would be something I'd rush out and do for the long term. Things like diff locks, a long range tank and good tyres remain a higher priority. The stock 120kw was enough for me - even with the 33s on.

Yes you can never have enough power but diff locks and or tanks don't do it for me ;)
