More POWER

I personally wont push any engine to its limits, but depends on your application.... if its just a toy you might get away with it. But I have seeing to many d4d engines blown which made a huge amount of power, My Fortuner had a Dastek chip and a De Graaf free flow exhaust, think it made 150kw & 400Nm which was very reliable power. Just be careful, I would rather go for reliable power than extremely high and costly power Regarding twin turbo's, one need to compare cost vs actual power gains, and ...

Front suspension noise when turning and on speed bumps

If the noise was eliminated or reduced by spraying on specific areas, then it might be problem, Just make sure they dont spray the complete suspension and only one item for testing and finding the problem

Front suspension noise when turning and on speed bumps

How old is the shocks? Could be be the bottom bushes of the shocks which are worn Also check the front anti-roll bar bushes they can cause a nice squeaking noise

Squeaking Noises

When does it squeak? Low speeds? Under power or when coasting? Under braking or does the squeak go away during braking? Also does the squeak change on terrain, such as smooth tar vs paving roads and what happens over a speed bump?

High Oil Consumption

Quoted from "PJC" If this indeed is oil consumption , yo really have a serious problem. If there isn't a big pool of oil under the car then check the turbo. Or check if the drain plug is in the sump....

Feeling every bump in the road

Dynojet, please read my comments earlier, why I would rather raise the suspension than dropping, One easily compare a normal ride height with those of race cars which are worlds apart, I you want a "cool" or rather different looking Fortuner then you can drop it... which I wont recommend as you will be changing the stroke on the shocks which might just give you a horrible and dangerous drive The Toyota dealers are not qualified to test shocks, in fact my opinion you need to get the shocks remove...

Feeling every bump in the road

Mmmm.... percentage improvement... if you asked lift that is easy... 40 or 50mm But % ride quality improvement is really difficult to say as its a feeling and personal opinion to say, But let say if you could improve 100% and get the same drive quality as a Prado, I would say by changing the shocks around 60%

Feeling every bump in the road

Play around with your tyre pressures, I had my Fortuner 1.8 bar for every day driving without load on the back and 2.2 or 2.4 when loaded. Get yourself a tyre pressure system, then you can deflate more and monitor the temperatures, your pressure is really important as well as tyre choice, remember the harder your sidewall the more you need to deflate to get the same result. But regarding to suspension, 90% of your comfort is on the shocks but the problem comes in when the vehicle is loaded and t...

Fortuner for SALE

I got the question often... Why a Fortuner....what makes it so great? Any every time I answer the same, there is nothing where the Fortuner is the best, Its not the cheapest, Not the most powerful Or the fastest Or the best handling in its class Or the best fuel consumption, Not even the most spaciest SUV Or the best equipped SUV Not even most capable 4x4 in the market, Even the comfort are not the best, Dont think Parts are the cheapest, There is not one area where the Fortuner is the best in t...
