  • 2013 Prado VX 3.0 D4D stock ECU tune

    i am looking to get my prado dyno tuned using the existing stock ECU. I have been told i could get from 410 Mn to 530Mn and 125kw to 165Kw. Only modifications I have done are a catch can and K&N filter.

    Has anyone done this tune for the 3.0? Interested to hear if you monitored the temperature after and it if was worth it.

    TIA

    Are they going to "flash" the ECU? That is change the engine tune from standard, if not, what actual tuning are they going to do and how?
    The idea of a dyno tune is to set injection duration, rail pressure, boost, injection timing etc. to suit the specific engine under various loads while monitoring the engine vitals.
    How they do this varies but just having a dyno tune without any additional hardware or ECU changes is pointless really in my humble opinion. Except if your trying to diagnose an engine fault by running the engine under load.

        where are you located?
        what are they charging for the tune?

        i have had my 120 6sp done, and we just brought a 2012 150 and have had it done as well
        but from someone i know extremely well from racing, if it wasnt for him i would have had it done !!!
        he does the tunes him self , not just loads a tune from some other car
