Established in 2004, Diesel Toys® has been churning out some of the finest diesel conversions available. Featured in almost every major automotive publication, we have earned the reputation of being the premiere diesel conversion company worldwide. Our conversions are more of a manufactured product than conversion. Diesel Toys® designs AND manufactures our own proprietary wiring harnesses for our conversions. This is the result of a monumental amount of research and development implementing electrical engineers and electrical systems designers to achieve an OEM Toyota quality product. To the end user, this means there is no “splicing” or “re-wiring” of the vehicle’s electrical system. The results are substantially increased reliability and provide the added benefit of being a visually cleaner installation. Our website has been totally redesigned from the ground up to educate our customers on the options set for their vehicle. If you notice any errors or have a question related to our services, please let us know.

TOYOTA TWIN TURBO v8 1VD-FTV
Rewind to 2005 and Toyota, building upon the successful Landcruiser inline diesels, was looking for a high-output yet compact powerplant to put into it’s larger 200 series SUV’s. Designed from the ground up to be lightweight and compact, the 1VD-FTV debuted at the Paris Auto Show in 2006 for use in the Landcruiser 200 series wagon. The 1VD-FTV has since garnered an incredible following overseas markets for it’s amazing torque, low fuel consumption, and fantastically quiet operation. Utilizing Toyota’s D-4D (pronounced Dee-Four-Dee) High Pressure Diesel Fuel Injection Technology, the 1VD-FTV allows for ultra-smooth operation throughout the engine’s power band. The 1VD-FTV was offered in two variants; a single turbocharger model and a dual turbocharger model. For conversion purposes, it makes little sense to offer a single turbocharger model as the final price would not be affected enough to warrant not using the higher power twin turbo variant. But, overall the only real drawback in using the 1VD-FTV in any variation is the price. All twin turbo 1VD-FTV’s have to come from the 200 series Landcruisers which is an expensive vehicle in any market. Furthermore, when dealing with a conversion project, we need almost an entire vehicle worth of components, computers, and accessories. So, our cost on acquiring a low-mileage complete 1VD-FTV conversion package is well over $25,000. This is before we make a dime on it. Secondly, the 1VD-FTV’s are a VERY complicated installation and require a ton of extras to execute. Now, all of this aside, the conversion is totally worth it from every angle. The 1VD-FTV in a Tundra platform will almost dfouble your fuel economy and deliver better performance than the gas guzzler V8 that’s in there now. If you have any questions regarding a Tundra twin turbo conversion, ask a sales associate today.
