Introducing our ALL NEW DT630

V6 Turbo Diesel Engine with 8 Speed Auto

Seeing a gap in our lineup for a compact yet powerful diesel engine that is small enough to fit in vehicles where the 1VD V8 just wont go, we now offer the DT630. The V6 platform will be offered as a one size fits all package, even as a replacement to the 1VD swaps we now see in vehicles such as the 80 and 105 Series Landcruisers.

We get a lot of calls from customers wanting to convert the 1VD engine into other chassis such as Hilux and Prado. Unfortunately the V8 is physically too large and too heavy for these vehicles and just wont fit. Secondly due to the fact that sourcing used Toyota engines for conversion have never been more expensive our new diesel ticks all the boxes.

With current generation outputs on par to what is offered from the 200 series twin turbo V8 while being smaller, lighter and more economical the 3.0L V6 will be supplied BRAND NEW at a cheaper price compared to a used 1VD. DT630 engines will come with a 2 year/unlimited kilometer parts warranty. We simply could not ask for a better engine option.

Completing the package, the DT630 is supplied with the fantastic ZF 8HP 8 speed auto, known as one of the best transmissions currently on the market. With this we are able to offer the best possible option when it comes to modern diesel engine conversions for almost any model vehicle.
