No this won't turn into a warranty discussion, if anyone has anymore questions they can just be referred back to your post in any case, it's detailed enough.

I don't suppose you could re program the fuel tank capacity for those of us with long range tanks who's "distance to empty" no longer functions?

+1 the big guys onto something here ;-)
I have this same issue for my PX, we currently dont have this defined within the stock original file.

I just use a scan gauge, it works great for distance to empty with the LR tank

Reading with great interest,bit of a bummer that the fuel gauge cant be calibrated though,i have also asked isuzu and got the same answer , i have a 130 ltr tank and after being on the road for a year i now know that when the fuel light comes on i still have 30 ltr left.

Just use an Ultra or Scangauge mate, very cheap and accurate.

I've just woke up and read this very interesting (to me) thread.

I'm only on my 1st coffee, so this might be a really embarrassing question, but here goes.

Mr ECUWEST: To re map/flash the ECU, do you actually need that vehicle in your workshop for incremental checks of results on dyno/road test, or in theory could it be done with an external power supply hooked up to your software etc? Is every re map identical or are they all slightly unique depending on how the parameters are affecting the engine's performance ?

Sh!t I've got a feeling already it's a pretty stupid question.

The reason I ask is because me & my car are in Philippines, but I'm in Perth a few times Per Year for about 5 days each time & I'd hand carry said ecu if it was a go er.... :oops:

Hi guys,

Initially I don't want to gain any more power our of my brand new DMAX.

However I would like just two things flashed into the computer

NO EGR & no delay in the fly by wire throttle or left foot brake throttle cut. Is this something possible and if so how much?

Remember jiggering with your EGR leads to a multi 10s of thousands $ fine if caught.

For the throttle delay; try a Sprintbooster, Windbooster, etc....They are around $250 and they take out the lag in the drive by wire throttle. I dont know of anyone using one in the current model, but all the Hilux boys rave about them.

http://www.sprintboostersales.com/ says
"The ETC (Electronic Throttle Control), which is also known as Drive-By-Wire, has the unfortunate downside of delayed response"

I wouldn't have thought the lag is because of some programmed delay in the drive-by-wire.
I would have thought the lag is because of the one second or so that it takes the turbo to wind up from idling.
Like, you can't make a D-Max bunny hop even if you try.

Does anybody on this forum have a Sprintbooster or Windbooster to comment?
If it ain't broke, fix it til it is.

My WRX had an annoying delay in the throttle, not something you expect in a performance car, turned out to be the throttle bracket flexing!, also something not expected on a performance car :roll:

Hi All,
Very new to this and doing a lot of reading. I am trying to improve towing performance so this is a really interesting thread. I was looking at chips like DP Chips, then 3" Exhausts and now this. I have a 2014 MUX LST

A few points and questions. In my research I came accross the Isuzu MU-X 3.0 TDI 130kw 2013 onward Injector Module & Pedal torq Package from Torqit. The Pedal Torq package http://www.torqit.com.au/pedal-torq-landing/ may interest the people on the last view posts.

So, my questions are:
ECUWEST, have you had any experience with the MUX and will your mate in Brendale be able to do it?

Lastly, has any one installed a 3" Exhaust on a MUX and can you let me know what sort of performance you got?

Thanks. Head is in a spin. :shock:

Cheers
Ben
