We are often asked, is it possible to improve economy AND performance in a diesel engine? Well the answer is YES by fitting one of our economy and performance chip kits.
Lindop Toyota can now supply you with the latest high tech economy & performance chip kits for most of the Toyota D4D diesel range of engines. The Lindop Chip tuning kits work in two ways, either plugging onto each injector plug and controlling the length of the injector timing, or on the later models, they plug directly on to the fuel pressure AND boost sensors. Power and torque is therefore increased only when demanded by the driver, they do not overfuel the engine at all. The units are fully electronic (microprocessor controlled) cheap products are available on auction websites, but these use resistors costing less than 10 pence, they are unreliable and will likely cause damage to the car as they simply fool the cars computer into thinking the engine is running cold which causes over-fuelling even at idle. This is not possible with our electronic units as they constantly monitor the fuel load to the injectors and can work out the vehicle revs and engine load in relation, our units do not increase fuelling until the engine is under load and the turbo charger starting to produce boost, power will also drop back to almost standard at high RPM to avoid engine damage at high revs. Service intervals remain unchanged but should be done on time and using original Toyota service parts and oil. All diesel vehicles do use some oil so it is important to check oil level regularly even between service intervals.. We also supply rail and boost kits for later models such as the T180, most of which are adjustable (please ask as some cars are NOT) You can expect a boost in BHP of around 20-25% Our units work! we have been selling them for a long time and are able to offer you help and advice by telephone. If you want more information, please call us on 01244 821031 and ask for John in the Parts department.

What our customers say
All good !!!!
What a great improvement to the car. Firstly the whole engine/transmission has come alive. With gentle and hard driving the pick up is instant , and under normal driving you can waft along without having to use much throttle . Overtaking is now a delight given the much quicker gear changes and the masses of torque. On the mpg front , in simple terms i have experienced the following. Round town without booting it i am getting 22/23 mpg which is up from late teens 72 to 76 on the motorway a very mild improvement and getting 26 mpg, up from 24/25, and above this speed much the same around 22/23 which for a big motor being pushed through the air isn't bad. The big and massive change, and its the area which i wanted most change is in the 62 to 66 speed area, not just for towing , but for gentle cruising on dual carriageways and A roads. The gearbox no longer has the 68/70 speed limiter on dropping into 6th so now on a light throttle the box locks up in 6th at 61/62 and holds at this speed , ideally 64 is perfect , at this speed the revs drop from around 1800 to 1450/1500
and what a marked improvement in consumption. Previously no matter how you drove it 28/29 mpg was the best achievable, i.e 64 isn at 1800 revs or 71 ish at 1600 revs. On a recent run back from Wales i reset the computer at Abergele and achieved 33.8 average all the way back to Manchester at a steady speed of 64 !! what a great result as the car has now done 4500 miles and as the engine continues to loosen up we may see a tiny improvement on this. To sum up the two mods have transformed the drive of the car which in itself is great, but with the added performance when wanted, but with the ability to achieve a comfortable saving on fuel.I've had the chip on my Hilux for just over a month now and thought i'd mail you back to let you know how DELIGHTED I am with it, immediately I was impressed with how much more responsive its made the old girl! I never thought that the Hilux was too flat but thought It could just do with a bit more power, and now it is perfect, its much easier on the engine not having to work it so hard to get up and running. So for that fact alone its most definitely worth doing. Economy wise, I think theres a slight improvement, its hard to tell at the moment really as I have been doing a bit of towing with it (I was towing lambs to an abattoir wich was around 2500-2600 kgs net weight and was really pleased with how she handled it), so with that included, i averaged around 25.8 mpg with that tank full of diesel, which im quite happy with considering i don't do any motorway miles its just running around small country roads up and down the gears all the time. Mr B T. Manchester.
So overall i am very happy with it, to anyone thinking about having one i cant recommend it enough it really is worth having, i wouldn't think twice about doing it again to another Hilux if i were to change one day. Mr G G Cornwall
Excellent documentation. I also appreciate your concern and advise to use setting 5, for safety I assume. Then comes the good part – the power box actually works! I’ve had friends and I’ve read many reviews for similar products that do exactly nothing, that’s why I was a bit cautious and asked about possible return many times. Results we got were 23 KW and around 70 NM increase of power and torque at the wheels, and from what we’ve been able to see so far around 0.5 l/100km less consumption in urban area (that is 1.3 mpg increase). We’ve monitored the car’s behavior on the computer and there seems not to be any negative data readings because of the power box… car feels and sounds fine too. That’s pretty much it. I would definitely recommend this product to any Toyota owner I know. Mr Dimitrov
Fitted very easy to fit, and very much plug n play. Pre chip mpg figures, solo 29, towing 24, After chip mpg solo 34, towing 28, so pretty much 15% increase in mpg, with my mileage that would save me around 355 gallons of fuel over 3 years, at £6 a gallon that would be £2,130 for an investment of £380 All in all perfect and well pleased, to the point that I have advised a couple of work colleagues to follow suit with their vehicles..... Mr Rush
From an internet search I purchased a Lindop tuning chip, from John in the parts department. This has as claimed greatly improved the driveability of my 2007 diesel Avensis and improved the fuel economy by about 10%. An initial problem was quickly sorted by John who I found to be extremely helpful at all times – an excellent service, well done.......SB – High Wycombe
I recently purchased a performance chip from you for my Auris SR180...I have had it fitted now for a couple of weeks and I have to say I'm impressed.The improvements are VERY noticeable... anyway, overall I would say 9/10, very good! Mid-rev range throttle response and torque is absolutely excellent now. Mr T.R. Bromsgrove
I picked up my T180 in December 20010 and just 2 weeks ago put a Lindop Chip on the car.....What can I say.....it has transformed an excellent 4x4 into a perfect 4x4.....The power pick up, torque and acceleration are very noticably improved. Lupidog, Aberbeenshire Via Toyota Owners Club
Thank you for your kit which is now installed in my car. This kit is a
marvel, the torque arrived as early as 1000 rpm which makes driving very
pleasant, my fuel economy has increased from 8.5 L to 6.5 L!.......G.C. France
The installation of my Hilux 3.0 kit went without any problems, the instructions, along with the illustrations were clear and easy to follow.......As for my thoughts on the effect on performance, impressive comes to mind. Power delivery is noticeably smoother and the increased drive can be experienced in all gears but especially in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, this has now given the 3.0 Hilux the added performance befitting this model. Mr John M
The fitting literally took no more than 10 minutes ...and has absolutely transformed the vehicle in every respect for the better...The economy has gone immediately from my average of 48+ to 52+, and that is with using the extra power when required for an overtake Mr G.L. Lancs
Thanks for the chip kit, the car is now much smoother and has a slightly better fuel consumption ...Mr B. Northern Ireland
The main reason I bought this chip is to increase the torque whilst towing a caravan, which it does very well. Overall I gained around 5-6 MPG. Mr D.C. Via email
Purchased a DEPK from the other side of the world with ease. I dealt with John mostly over the forum and he was very helpful. Smooth transaction, good communication and fast delivery. Mr Calvi. Australia
Chip kit arrived and is now fitted, best money ever spent, totally changed car far more responsive better performance and better m.p.g. what more could you want?...Mr J S. Belfast
