automate... for prado, r u looking at 2.7 petrol or 2.8 diesel?

for sure, the 2.8 diesel have a better FC compared to big horn 3.1

however, prado do not have intercooler

ic...thanx shiftVQV6...

in tht case i guess prado 2.8 diesel is worthier..
is it possible to install intercooler
into the 2.8 diesel engine?

another question is, i noticed some hv upgraded their prado gx with
1KZ 3.0 engine...how's the FC compared to bighorn 3.1?

thanx 4 ur info willie79...
actually i don hv idea tht the prado 2.8 diesel is a non-turbo engine..

but willie79, if i not mistake the 4JG2-TC is 3.1 engine cannot claim
rebate in sabah is it? bcos more than 3000cc..but mybe the rebate wont be
last any longer than another year due to fuel downprice ...well, thts
another story...

what about the interior between prado GX 2.8 and bighorn 3.1?

yes.....V6 3.2 is petrol engine....FC sure thirsty punya but don forget
diesel and petrol pricing gap only RM 0.10 only even same price with
RON92. one is 3.1 diesel one is 3.2 petrol.....V6 confirm powerful than
diesel one so for long term of calculate nowaday same same abang adik
saja....one more thing V6 3.2 now selling below RM25k even below 20K only
just like buy a secondhand kelisa.Smile
