Two problems require two solutions:

Our DPT Bespoke trans-pack is fully designed in house after many years of 4-wheel driving, towing, and touring with my own 200 series and understanding the frustrations and shortcomings of the transmission. We have fully customized our own transmission tune and torque convertor lock up to fix the issues of this transmission.

Part 1: Transmission tune/remap

We have altered the shift pattern so when driving with light throttle in “drive” around town the transmission shifts a lot shorter/closer together to reduce the rpm between gear changes. The transmission in standard form holds gears too long between changes. We have brought 6th gear to a more usable speed of around 105 km/h (subject to your tyre size). From the factory, 6th gear is around 115 – 120km/h depending on the year (pre and post facelift)

We have applied more “torque convertor lock-up” to 5th and 6th gear to stop the taco constantly flaring when you are on the highway. The flaring of the taco is the “torque convertor” going between lock and unlock. This setting/programming from the manufacturer does not suit Australian driving conditions. We have re-programmed the lock-up to hold in these gears to give you better drivability and help to improve fuel economy.

Part 2: Bespoke transmission lock-up kit

We have our own Bespoke transmission lock-up kit designed to work in sync with our transmission tune. This lock-up kit is activated by simply moving the gear selector to “sports mode” to engage it and moving it back to drive to dis-engage the lock-up and can all be done on the fly. Engaging the torque convertor lock-up allows the transmission to be driven in manual mode. The torque convertor will automatically lock-up from 38 km/h in second gear and stay locked though to 6th gear. When you are slowing down, the “locked” torque convertor greatly improves engine braking, similarly to a manual transmission, for those times going down big hills and ranges. Our Bespoke transmission lock-up kit will also automatically un-lock the torque convertor below 35 km/h, to allow the transmission to function normally and not stall the engine.

If you are 4-wheel driving in low range and have selected “sports mode”, our lock-up kit will engage low speed lock-up from 8 km/h to give you maximum power and torque to the wheels for those very slippery and boggy conditions.

By controlling the torque convertor when in drive through our custom transmission tune and combining this with our Bespoke transmission lock-up kit, this gives you the ultimate transmission pack.

Our Ultimate trans-pack was designed for the Land Cruiser 200 series and is also available for some Hilux and Prado models.

Rick and the team did a fabulous job upgrading my beloved 200 series. I have always loved my vehicle but love it even more now! Rick's professionalism and vast knowledge of the 200 series instilled confidence and trust. I am now a Diesel Performance Tune addict and can't wait for my next mod!

I was asked to contact this business by a third party to try and resolve an issue I had with my car’s suspension. I was somewhat prepared for service that was so-so as I lived on the other side of the country and it was obvious that more than likely I would never cross their doorstep again once I had the problem looked at. That view could not have been further from the truth. Rick fitted me in to initially look at the problem and then spent an hour thoroughly diagnosing what may be the cause. He contacted two separate suppliers, arranged to have the parts delivered ASAP and again fitted me in first thing on the Monday morning to complete the job so I could be on my way. I cannot speak highly enough of this company and it’s staff and it’s approach to customer service. I would have no issue using them for any of the services that they provide and do not hesitate to recommend others to do likewise.

When it comes to knowledge and quality workmanship you won't find any better on the GC. We originally took our ranger to these guys to fix something that had been incorrectly installed by another company and no one could correct this. From the first conversation these guys knew their stuff and were honest! And resolved my issue with one visit. We are so lucky we were referred to Diesel Performance Tune and take all our vehicles to these experts now. The staff are great to deal with and are honest good people. Anyone had enough of not getting value with who your using currently don't hesitate give these guys a call!

Very professional outfit. I have a PK Ranger and it is hard to find centres who care about older vehicles these days. Rick, Eddie and the boys treated me like one of their high end Land Cruiser customers. I am mechanically minded and was able to really discuss my issues and findings with the vehicle which did not fall on deaf ears. Not only did they resolve my issues and breathed new life back into my old vehicle, they also repaired smaller less noticeable issues which were very inexpensive now but would have resulted in a lot more costly repairs down the track. These guys will be seeing me again 🙂 Keep up the great work.

The diesel performance team did a great job with my hilux. I have had a reoccurring problem for years with the check engine light, limp mode and the hilux throwing codes that no mechanic was able to diagnose. The team was able to find the hidden broken wire, fix it and tune my hilux. It's been running great ever since. Would highly recommend this business.

Rick, Eddy, and the team did a GVM upgrade on my Landcruiser 200 and were fantastic throughout the process. Thorough and very professional. Would recommend highly.
