200 Series Landcruiser The Big Daddy of the 4×4 world
200 Series Landcruiser in our opinion is the ultimate towing and cruising vehicle on the Australian market as a family wagon. This V8 Toyota powered Automatic Diesel has the capacity and comfort to take you around Australia. Power Curve Performance has been tuning these vehicles even before the days of the ECU Tune.
In the days of diesel performance, chips saw Power Curve Performance the first choice of tunes for Jamie from the Landcruiser 200 series project.
Pre ECU Tune Days
Years down the track times have changed and the addition of a chip with the for ever-evolving technology of the 200 series Landcruiser has passed. Welcome to the era of the ECU. The brain behind the muscle of the V8. An all too intelligent computer that commands your 200 series. If you watch the 200 series project you will notice that this technology was new and there was a lot of hesitation in its function and safety. Now we soundly know it is in fact the safer option. Like all upgrades the best option comes down to the person putting the data into the unit.
Over time now the 200 series ECU is so involved we have found that pairing it with a chip and many other vehicles causes the the ECU to try and fight against the module. This compensation can cause issues in other areas such as transmission and engine life.
2018 the ECU Tune for the 200 series is your best option
200 Series Landcruiser ECU Tune
Achieved inhouse by driving, dynoing and modifying the original maps. The ECU controls many components of the vehicles ECU from the injection to dpf burn. A tune with Power Curve Performance looks at down low power and torque and improves the drive style in the lower range of the vehicle. For most this is most important when overtaking, towing and general confidence. With the vehicle having a high price tag it is only suited to upgrade it with the safest most suited upgrade.
