This company is in the UK so someone on the forum might be familiar with them. I don't really put a lot of trust in these things (or the performance claims the companies make) but interesting to watch.

2019 Jimny ECU and Turbo

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

Huge performance gains over stock? Yeah until you get a rod through the block. I would be very cautious.

As a untrained monkey man mechanic, I am fully confident in my comments.....


I agree with Lambert. It doesn't matter what a gain is, with a gain of any sort comes drawbacks. Or in other words....there's is always a price to pay.

Also voids any warranty, and is a very bad idea IMO. ;-)

However I know jack poop about this sort of thing.

I imagine it would be quite scary driving a Jimny with that much power. You'd be on the bends too quick and with too much momentum behind you, I bet a lot of them would end up falling over!

Plymouth Gin has this effect on me. :whistle:


I have to agree, Soeley. IMO, if the Jimny was suitable for this power, it would be offered as an option. It is, what it is.

Got to say I don't understand the thinking behind that. If you want a fast car go and buy one that's designed that way. Don't purchase a ladder frame and solid axle Jimny and hope it will get around the first bend.

There is a turbo 'kit' avaliable for the gen3 jimny on aliexpress. I know Kiethy blew up the engine, but that was unlucky and a M13. I think his turbo setup lives on in James Priestly's trayback :-)

from everything i've heard about the gen 4 it seems that a bit of extra power, (coupled to a 6th gear), is just what it's crying out for - to get the revs down at national speed limits. maybe future models will have both.

Agree, these things tend to be a recipe for 'lunching' you engine - over time at least. I would be much more convinced by a 'low pressure' turbo installation - or better still maybe a supercharger, particularly for the Jimny with it's off road duties.

Still, interesting to see how the aftermarket develops.

I note that Paranoid Industries - elsewhere on this Forum, were thinking about a low pressure turbo kit.

I wonder what's it like in low 4x4 rock crawling when the turbo keeps kicking in...:laugh:
