Remapping the MY2017 Toyota Hilux 2.8l 1GD-FTV brings solid performance results!
The 1GD-FTV 2.8 liter engine is installed on the new Hilux and Land Cruiser from Toyota. It has 16 valves and a double overhead camshaft design. The compression ratio is 15.6:1. It comes with a variable nozzle turbocharger (VNT). It generates 177 PS (175 hp; 130 kW) at 3400 rpm, and 450 N·m (332 lbf·ft) of torque at 1400-2600 rpm when mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, depending on target market and emission specifications. For this particular vehicle, the manufacturer claims that the Hilux produces 130kw/177hp and 420 N·m (310 lbf·ft) at the flywheel.
On the dyno its oversized tires had increased drag losses. This equated to 90kw/122hp at the wheels on DynoDynamics. With a custom Stage1 Etuners ECU remap, peak power increased to 107kw/146hp at the wheels. Boost was increased by 3psi to maintain turbo reliability for this daily driven work vehicle.

Installing the ECU remap on this brand new Toyota is possible via the car’s OBD port. This modification is a new Engine Control Unit calibration, not a piggiback unit.
- Maximum power at the wheels: 107.6 kW/146whp (measured 90.2kW stock), gains 17.4 kW/24whp
