Prado – 2.8L – 1GD-FTV 
 Denso ECU

The Challenge

In this blog post, we will explore how tuning the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado can address the limitations imposed by the factory. Through ECU tuning, the full potential of the Land Cruiser Prado can be unlocked, eliminating the underwhelming performance it experiences in its stock configuration.

The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, a “light-duty” variant within the Land Cruiser range, is renowned for its spacious interior, suitable for families and cargo, along with impressive off-road capabilities. Our focus here is on the fourth-generation J150 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. Equipped with a 2.8L turbo diesel engine controlled by a Denso ECU, the factory settings currently restrict the Land Cruiser Prado, causing it to feel underpowered, especially when navigating uphill or towing. At Alt Tune, we have the tools to surpass these limitations and provide the Land Cruiser Prado with the power it truly deserves.

The Solution

Our approach involves utilizing ECU tuning to optimize the power output of the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado eliminating the need for aftermarket parts. Through ECU tuning, we finely adjust the settings to enhance power and torque, resulting in a more robust vehicle and a more enjoyable driving experience. At Alt Tune, we tailor each tune to suit the specific vehicle, considering individual customer needs and driving conditions. This personalized approach ensures the best and safest results, recognizing that ECU tuning is not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Additionally, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado faces challenges with its emission system, featuring both EGR and DPF. To address these issues, we have developed an emission solution specifically for the Land Cruiser Prado. This solution effectively eliminates problems, enhancing the vehicle’s reliability and saving you money in the long run.
