Warranty has expired, time to fix exhaust and ECU

Postby same name on Tue, 15 Sep 2020 7:45 +0000

Morning all, can anyone tell me if there is someone on the Gold Coast who can sort out my exhaust and the ECU all in one shop?

I'd be interested to know the before and after results
What tune and pipe etc.

From everything i've seen, its about a 30% increase, but they all come off different baselines etc . Also theres a differences in dyno's.

But it would be interesting to see if your seat of the pants dyno can tell a difference.

Stage one tune, dpf delete, catch can, less restrictive exhaust = 48% power increase and 40% torque increase plus 1.5L/100km improvement

As you say the numbers and Dyno characteristics are all over the show

My numbers are relative to before and after

Certainly more linear, and responsive, to drive

These boys will be my next port of call when the border restrictions are lifted. Won't go anywhere else.

Did you get a remap of the ECU or use a piggy back unit like Uni chip?

opted for the Unichip while under warranty on both the lux and now Ex wifes prado. Crd now offer Ecu shop products and a remapping. Using both together will see the best results.
