I am looking at upgrades for my V8 4.5 diesel LC200 - whilst I see from this site, that Lindop, a main dealer in the NW provides a service,it is via a third party, and is not an "official" Toyota upgrade?
Any views please/ Tally ho, "Foxhunter"

Hi Rangrov

I am just in the throws of changing 2004 Amazon 4.7 V8 to a 200 .

How have you gone on with the mods by Lindrop in Chester ?

Cheers

Having done 4500 miles in my new v8 i took the plunge and had the chip and autoflash done by John at Lindrop Bros in Wrexham.

Heres the extract from my e mail to John this week following a month or so of driving. Hope you guys find the info helpful


What a great improvement to the car.

Firstly the whole engine/transmission has come alive. With gentle and hard driving the pick up is instant , and under normal driving you can waft along without having to use much throttle .
Overtaking is now a delight given the much quicker gear changes and the masses of torque.

On the mpg front , in simple terms i have experienced the following:

Round town without booting it i am getting 22/23 mpg which is up from late teens

72 to 76 on the motorway a very mild improvement and getting 26 mpg, up from 24/25, and above this speed much the same around 22/23 which for a big motor being pushed through the air isnít bad.

The big and massive change, and its the area which i wanted most change is in the 62 to 66 speed area, not just for towing , but for gentle cruising on dual carriageways and A roads. The gearbox no longer
has the 68/70 speed limiter on dropping into 6th so now on a light throttle the box locks up in 6th at 61/62 and holds at this speed , ideally 64 is perfect , at this speed the revs drop from around 1800 to 1450/1500
and what a marked improvement in consumption. Previously no matter how you drove it 28/29 mpg was the best achievable, i.e 64 isn at 1800 revs or 71 ish at 1600 revs. On a recent run back from Wales i reset the
computer at Abergele and achieved 33.8 average all the way back to Manchester at a steady speed of 64 !! what a great result as the car has now done 4500 miles and as the engine continues to loosen up we may see
a tiny improvement on this.

To sum up the two mods have transformed the drive of the car which in itself is great, but with the added performance when wanted, but with the ability to achieve a comfortable saving on fuel.

Your mods seem to all make sense but what will Toyota say if something like the gearbox was to go wrong in a big way.
On the previous 100 models i have known of 1 that required replacement under warranty although the car was standard.
I bet that you would have a problem with Toyota if something was to go bang, even if the mods had nothing to do with it.
I do think the gearbox on the 200 needs some work though and Toyota should issue some mods to stop it keep changing down so often.

Hi Martin

The mods proved to be a great purchase.

I recently sold the car with 35000 miles and never had any issues.

Cheers
