Landcruiser VDJ70 Series

 

 

 

SQP has a long history of modding the L70 Landcruiser platform dating back to the purchase of our first shop ute in 2009. Dismayed with the lack of performance of it from the factory we set about making something useful from the dull OEM Toyota product. First place of call was the exhaust. Now this was a long time before 3" systems were readily available off the shelf- so out with the TIG and a bunch of 3" mandrels and a 3" system with centre muffler was crafted. The performance increase was immediate allowing 3rd gear to be used where 2nd was required before. We were heavily invested in the LS market through this era so apart from tinking with a few mates rigs, we really didn't focus on the L70 too much. Along the way through there we messed with rail chips limited success. The shop ute was sold and a VDJ200 took its place.

One of the off shoots with the VDJ200 develpment has been the work we have done in the development of VDJ79 mapping via HPTuner. High speed logging enabled us to open up code that others haven't seen and give a tuning package second to nothing on the market. World leading Tuning Software developed in Australia for Australian based platforms. Running a second fiddle to the VDJ200, we reckon it is time to bring the 79 out into the sunshine.

Combined with our relationships and rock solid supply chain in NPC Perfromance Clutches and Manta Performance Exhausts SQP offer the following upgrades for your VDJ79!

We have all seen how well the 1VD-FTV responds to some mapping. Even in the crudes form of jacked fuel pressure and the like a decent gain can be shown on the dyno. But this often leaves them with poor performance off WOT. SQP address our remapping in the same direction as Toyota engineers. We don't rely upon a bunch of hacks to get a result. Pure use of the code sees great increases with improved throttle response and increased economy. The PERFECT combination for long distance travel and towing. We can push it up some more for the guys that want it loud and proud but really are focused on the emission intact improved performance package. There is no real reason to remove a DPF on these jiggers when great increases in performance can be achieved with little more than a DPF exhaust upgrade and careful mapping on this massively derated OEM offering..

 

Whether full mine spec, camper trailer towing tourer or the "weekend warrior" SQP has a VDJ upgrade path to suit you!

 

The dyno graph above illustrates the great gains that are there to be had on a VDJ79. With nothing more than a DPF back system and SQP remap, this 200km old service vehicle increased power by 33%! Now that is bang for the BUCK!

 

But you want ot step into it a big harder...makes some noise and enjoy a higher upgrade? The above 79 is a turbo back 3" system fitted SQP remapped parts getter. Topping out a MASSIVE 48% increase in power, these things really come alive!

 

As impressive as a 48% increase in power is, a 60% increase in torque is something else! An exhaust and a quality remap and the VDJ79 EXPLODES into life! Interesting thing about the graph above is that with carefully set up dyno, the OEM torque rating of 430nm was very close to what was seen on the dyno with exhaust upgrade at 450nm...the runs shown are stright after each other- repeateble baseline and remap- not just the "BEST" but BACK TO BACK. No water spray on intercoolers etc. Real mapping for real performance.

Worried about the clutch once these power upgrades are done?? Well don't be. SQP is one of WA largest stockists and resellers of NPC Performance Clutches. SQP has been a stockist, user and product development associate of NPC since 2001. Our relationship is ROCK SOLID. SQP has primarily focused on trade sales in the past but with the release of our above upgrades, it is time to offer some great deals and service to the end user. The NPC1300 is the go to clutch for the VDJ70 community. Offering a lower pedal effort and great holding capacity it fills the gap where the factory falls down. Do you need a clutch upgrade on your new VDJ79 with a Stage One or Two. Typically not. Unlike the earlier 70s the later clutch has proven to be a decent piece and we have many running around in upgraded units giving great sevice. If you are heavy and running on some 33"s etc, it is a good plan to get a NPC1300 in sooner than later. We offer supply and fitting by our qualified tradesmen at the same time as our Stage One and Two upgrades for the discounted price;

 

$2295.*
