Installation plus dyno-tuning, it cost around PhP30,000 all-cost-in. According to a lot of sources and to the people at Speedlab. You will gain around 25 hp more (rear wheel hp), and around plus 40 to 70 Nm of torque for a typical 3-litre CRDi-diesel pickup like the DMax.... You will also have an improved fuel-efficiency as many users have testitifed. I'm also looking to avail it for my DMax as the cheaper tuning chip alternative to the more expensive DPChip of Berrima Diesels in Mandaluyong. The DPChip is an Australian product and Berrima Diesels is also an Aussie-based company.And of course, the same thing goes for the 3-litre Hilux D4-D, 3-litre Ranger TDCi and Mazda BT-50, and the 3.2-litre Strada Di-D. Look into Speedlab's website and see the notable gain from the 3-litre Hilux D4-D where it gained torque from 380 Nm to 450 Nm with this chip alone....Goodluck on your choices!
Yes, if it's the "3.0 Ddi-iTEQ" DMax-siado then the Unichip is applicable....Check Speedlab, Quezon Ave. and its Unichip here:http://www.speedlab.com.ph/http://www.speedlab.com.ph/unichip.phpUnder the Unichip page, you may click on the 3-litre Toyota Hilux D4-D and see how much it gained from this tuning chip alone. i take it chief ganjaman that your DMax LX is no longer in its 3-year warranty, else, it will be void.Goodluck!P.S.If it's not much of a trouble chief, and since you have a DMax, can i please ask you to join the Inteco Dealerships Facebook site at ---- http://www.facebook.com/intecogroupIt's quite important by clicking "LIKE" in this page, because you will see here (and enable you to join) a post related to bringing-into the Philippines the better 3-litre 4JJ1-TCX "hi-power" engine for the DMax. This engine has been existing since 2006 but is not offered yet to the Philippine-market. This engine is also CRDi and it utilises a variable-geometry turbocharger. The DMax carrying this engine looks similar to our Philippine-DMax but it got a distinctively good-looking "hood-scoop". While our Philippine-DMax carries the emblem "3.0 Ddi-iTEQ" this "better" DMax carries the "3.0 iTEQ VGS TURBO" signature....This is the poll proper and kindly just click "YES" so that we get the attention of Isuzu Phils. to finally offer this engine to us Filipinos.... http://apps.facebook.com/polldaddy-polls/?view=poll&id=4914803Thank you very much.
Hi All,Anybody knows if there is a Manual transmission variant for new Mitsubishi Strada 4 x 4 2.5 GLS with VGT which pumping 178 PS, since as far as I know they have only Automatic transmission for this variant, Any news from Mits as when they start rolling out this Manual Variants...Thanks...^^ LA PA BOSS.
Like the previous-generation models, the new D-Max and Colorado share the same bodywork and interior design, but will now offer different drivetrain technology. The D-Max trucks will be available with an advanced safety package, with features including electronic stability control, traction control, ABS, brake assist and a number of airbags.
