Front Mount Intercooler for 60 series (HJ61, HJ60) Landcruiser - by PDI Intercoolers
Welcome to performance 👑
For years we searched for an intercooler that worked with our HJ61 / 12HT; we wanted something that fit, something of high quality and finally something that was large enough to make a difference on EGT's and IAT's.
We, like you, wanted:
📞 Manufacturer support
Then, we came across the PDI intercooler from Brian at Performance Diesel Intercoolers in W.A, Australia 🇦🇺
After speaking with Brian, understanding the size of this intercooler, and its design to enable fitment into the HJ61 Landcruiser, as well as it's specs and quality we knew we had to have it 🎁
Not only that, it looked bass ass 😎
If you've got a 12HT or a 2HT, usually you're keen for a little more power, more torque and better performance. 💪🏽
How do we achieve that with these old but brilliant motors? Simple; boost and fuel, > BUT this means higher EGT's and thus higher IAT's; which means hotter engine, rings going bad, overheating, head warping etc etc. 🔥😢
If you have gone through the trauma of any of the above on your beloved 12HT/2H motor then you're understanding how important it is to AVOID this at all costs 👎🏽
Because this means:
Getting the engine built; but then there's the cost, what if the builder isn't good and/or make an error, what about their warranty, what if the build cost blows out 💸
Building the engine yourself; means needing to find space (mum's garage may not fit a small truck engine), finding the time; will it be one of the 50% complete projects for 3 years? you're thinking : "I hate those, my 60 is already one of those!" ⏳
If you're wanting more power, then this is for you; it means boost, cooler EGT's and lower IAT's, it means peace of mind 😌 and motivates you to get your diesel tuned (properly on a dyno 🙄), it means better trips and it looks mean 😈
* Please note, if utilising a custom set-up piping may not fit your set-up. Please let us know your requirements the closest possible will be supplied. This kit is for a 12HT set-up only, whilst we do our best to accomodate a 2H custom set-up, the responsibility of fitment it up to the customer.
The PDI Landcruiser 60 series HJ61 HJ60 Front mount intercooler is designed to fit on both the round headlight and the twin square light model. It sits further back than all other designs we have seen as it has recessed areas in the end tanks for the condenser fittings and piping.
The core is 545 x 300 x 65mm.
Pipes are stainless steel and is supplied with a stainless flange onto the intake manifold, which does a 180deg bend under the air supply pipe.
Dual Diaphragm Brake Booster Landcruiser 80 series (Early 4 bolt master) – By PDI
Braking upgrades should be done in conjunction with power increases and we have found the biggest improvement can be achieved with this mod. A PDI dual diaphragm brake booster for the 80 series is not only new but is larger and will give an increase in brake performance as the booster assist ratio is higher than factory.
Our PDI dual diaphragm brake boosters have been ADR tested and proved to pass all tests. Our design allows us to exceed the standard brake specifications for those with:
increased weight (both GVM and GCM).
larger wheel diameter
The only fitting issue is for those with rear air con or ice box console where the alloy pressure lines are routed close to the brake booster and will result in interference such that our larger boosters can’t be fitted.
We recommend these be installed with braided brake lines as line pressure will be increased and the standard lines may be compromised if still original. This is both due to age and the potential for damage as they are fitted to a 4WD. Installing braided lines will also give a better result as factory flexible lines bulge and reduce effective application of the pedal.
These are suited for an 80 series Landcruiser, and may be suitable for installation on both the petrol and diesel 60 Series models; we do not guarantee these will fit your 60 Series, please do your research before purchasing and attempting an install. For those fitting to petrol models we suggest and additional vacuum reservoir be added to ensure the booster is able to provide full assist for a period after the engine is turned off or if being driven enthusiastically where vacuum build up is limited.
Safari Snorkel for 60 Series Landcruiser – By Safari 4x4

The SS60R Toyota 60, 61 & 62 Series LandCruiser 4x4 Snorkelis designed to deliver a huge volume of the coolest and cleanest air possible into the stock air cleaner assembly of 01/1980 - 12/1989 All Engines.
With the huge air flow demands of each engine in the Toyota 01/1980 - 12/1989 All Engines 60, 61 & 62 Series LandCruiser, Safari took the decision to design a snorkel system that raised the air intake to prevent ingesting harmful elements to the vehicles air cleaner.
Huge air flow is but one aspect of the ultimate in snorkel Toyota 60, 61 & 62 Series LandCruiser design. The Safari snorkel air ram is designed to perform two very important roles. The most obvious is to funnel cool clean air into the snorkel body - but just as importantly, the Safari air ram acts as a highly efficient water separator to remove rain water from the incoming air stream - thus ensuring safe engine operation through even the most torrential tropical storms.

E–Locker & Bearing Kit, Full Floating Axle for 60 Series Landcruiser - By Terrain Tamer
The Terrain Tamer Differential Locking Kit includes all required bearings and gaskets plus the Australian made Harrop Eaton ELocker.
The Harrop Eaton ELocker is an electromagnetic locking differential, requiring no compressor or air lines, that is manually engaged with an on/off switch by the driver. Internally, the patented Eaton gears are forged and feature a strong 4 pinion design. The Harrop Eaton ELocker has a simple 'drop in' fitting process and allows the front and rear axles-lock independently.
Made in Australia
What is an ELocker and how does it work? The Harrop Eaton ELockers sold by Terrain Tamer as a kit, with all required side bearings, are reliable electronic, selectable differentials, featuring electromagnetic locking technology and a 4 pinion, forged gear design for added strength, intended for 4WD drivers who require traction on demand.
When unlocked, an ELocker performs as an open differential, transferring extra power to the wheel with the least resistance, and the wheels can rotate at different speeds.
However, when the driver needs instant traction, they are able to simply flick a switch, activating the electromagnet, which pushes the locking pins into position in the back of the side gear and the differential is locked, capturing 100% of available torque, distributing it equally to both ends of the axle regardless of the difference in traction, and forcing the wheels to rotate at the same speed.
An open differential is required for general road usage, as an outside tire travels further than the inside wheel during cornering, however when a driver is in a low traction situation such trying to power through mud or climb over a boulder and only one tire is actually receiving power, a locker is often required.
What are the advantaged of an ELocker over an Air Locker? ELockers use an electronic in-dash switch to control a set of magnets that causes a roller cams to engage pins that push into the side gear, locking the differential.
This is the prime advantage of an eLocker – it doesn’t require an outside source of power besides the standard 12-volt, and does not require an on-board air compressor to operate, as air lockers do.
This makes ELockers significantly more reliable and is why they are the preferred option for many 4WD owners.
How do you activate an ELocker? ELockers are activated by a dash or console mounted switch. Any suitable 12VDC switch will work, however the required wiring harness with a relay switch, chassis electrical system protecting diode, and the fuse is included with all Terrain Tamer ELocker Kits.
The Harrop Eaton ELocker is an open differential with electronically-controlled locking features and, while the design of the locking components differs between models and generations of designs, they all work by locking one of the side gears to the differential case.
When the ELocker is engaged via the dash switch, the electromagnetic mechanism fully locks, evenly sending 100% of the available torque to both wheels.
Can you engage an ELocker while driving? Technically, an ELocker can be engaged while driving, however you need to pay attention that the wheel speed difference (between the right and left wheel) remains under 50 rpm. It's therefore recommended that a driver engages an ELocker only when the vehicle speed is below 5km/h.
While ELockers are intended to accommodate severe use, constant abuse and extreme speed engagement will significantly shorten the life of the ELocker and is not covered under warranty.
When the ELocker is engaged, it instantly attempts to lock and match wheel speeds, and as a result, the differential must immediately accelerate the slow speed wheel, axle shaft, and brake component mass to the same speed as the free-spinning wheel.
This is not only harsh on the differential; it is also incredibly harsh on the axle shaft.
