We have purchased a Toyota 1999 GXL, 4.2 diesel cruiser,with 130 000 kms on the clock, but we are unhappy with the power output. It is really sluggish up hills, we have had the injectors replaced but it has not made a large impact.
We are considering putting an aftermarket turbo on it? Has anyone out there done the same.
Any advice/comments would be helpful and appreciated.

Did mine about six months ago, should have done it sooner! will make a huge difference, like a different car. spend the money and have it done properly, there are cheaper units and installers, but make sure you get it dynoed before and after and have the pump and all set up correctly. i also put a larger exhaust on, 3 inch, to help it breathe better. this also made a difference in throttle response - even if it sounds like a mack truck!!

You should have bought an Landrover - then you would have already had the turbo and would already be going up hills in a breeze.

Is that with the breeze behind you, 150 km/h winds with a sail on top?

I did a lot of research on the subject ,and in the end I went with the advise of someone I trusted. I had mine done at Guest's 4WD in Fairfield Melbourne last week, and so far I am very happy. You will find a lot of company's claiming big output figures, but at the end of the day if you push an engine harder, something has to give.

Good luck with your decision.

cheers

Andrew
