After 8 months of development, prototyping and testing, PatrolDocta is proud to release the Landcruiser VDJ V8 airbox upgrade. If you need an airbox with superior performance, this is the one for you! After the popularity of our Nissan Patrol high flow air intakes, we had more demand for a higher flowing intake for the 70 series V8 Toyota diesel. This model is renowned for letting dust through the airbox, so we have come up with a 100% sealed unit, offering a massive airflow improvement over the original airbox.
The Landcruiser VDJ V8 airbox is a direct bolt in the original mounting holes. No cutting inner panels, no having to source joiner tubes, and no drilling holes—just a simple bolt in! It comes with the factory look rubber join from the lid of the airbox to the engine as per the pictures as well as the required hose clamps making the plumbing as simple as it can get. The Landcruiser VDJ V8 airbox is a third bigger than the original and uses the 200 series Toyota Land Cruiser air cleaner element. This makes the Landcruiser VDJ V8 airbox much larger with a much larger filter element.
The funnel design 5-inch outlet lid has made a massive improvement of the airflow, with test results flowing 41% greater than the factory filter! The Landcruiser VDJ V8 airbox, set up along with the big exhaust/dump pipe and the wide selection of tunes available for this model of Toyota, there are big power gains achievable. At the lowest point on the airbox is a Donaldson Vacuator water drain valve to ensure any water that enters the snorkel and runs down to the airbox drains back out.
We also have a 4-inch snorkel available for this model and offer the VDJ 79 series airbox and snorkel in kit form.
Please see other listings for this. Powder coating is available at an additional price. (SEE OTHER LISTING FOR POWDERCOATED VERSION AND FOR PARTICULAR SNORKEL JOINERS (SAFARY ARMAX OR TJM AIRTEC) Fitting to the original snorkel does require a modification to the snorkel joiner in the inner guard (instructions are supplied for this simple modification). Please inform us upon purchase what snorkel you are joining to so we can supply you the correct size join.
