The brand new 2.8 liter 1GD-FTV is the next generation in ultra-high efficiency turbo diesel engines from Toyota. The 1GD-FTV engines introduces Toyota’s new clean burn technology called  “Superior Thermal Efficient Combustion (ESTEC) technology”. Used exclusively in overseas markets, the 1GD-FTV includes quite the lengthy list of refinements. First major refinement is the use of an integrated DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) for ultra-clean emissions and zero diesel exhaust smell. Toyota also implemented the use of SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) to further lower NOx emissions and provide a smooth quiet, clean exhaust output. This is fantastic news for customers in CARB states as this technology could allow these converted trucks to be sold and legally operated in CARB states.  Other refinements over the 1KD-FTV include a chain-drive timing mechanism, front mounted intercooler system, and  can be mated to 6speed auto or manual transmissions.

CONVERSION FAQs


Im ready to get started, whats involved?

To start the conversion process, email us with your vehicle’s specifics. We will need the year, model, transmission type, and whether or not the vehicle is 2WD or 4WD. Once we receive this information, we can put together an itemized quote for your project.

Where do I get parts for my conversion once its finished?

We provide all of our customers with a Diesel Toys New Customer Packet on a USB drive. This drive contains the Toyota factory service manual, and all applicable fluid capacities, break in procedure, service procedures for the vehicle, and contact information for our parts sources overseas.

How do I service my converted vehicle?

We recommend finding a local diesel technician that specializes in TDI Volkswagens. These TDI specialists are typically more familiar with modern 4-cylinder diesels than your domestic diesels. If you cant find one or need a recommendation, hop on TDICLUB.com and look for their Trusted TDI Mechanics List by state.

How do you calculate your pricing?

We take the cost of the power-train+ components required for the conversion + the nationwide average shop rate of $100/hr and we end up with the total for the conversion project. The typical diesel conversion has 100-120 hours of labor factored into the price. So, that translates into $10,000-$12,000 in billable labor hours.

Can I supply my own diesel engine?

Due to the high probability for an issue to arise, we decided to just leap-frog this entirely and not even go there. Our business model revolves around a professional installation. If there is an issue, we work with our suppliers to rectify the issue on our dime, not the customer’s.

Do you repair things during the process?

Through the years, we  have had vehicles show up with serious mechanical issues. Sometimes, the owners “assume” that we are rebuilding the entire vehicle so they “forget” to tell us the fact that the vehicle was totaled, or there was an engine fire etc. The diesel conversion process does NOT include rebuilding items on the vehicle and all pricing is based off a running driving vehicle in good order.
