This tells me that my decision to keep my 10/2014 3ltr Prado has been a good move...

Yes why I chose my Challenger of that vintage as they drop engine cubes and rev them up for emissions to meet Euro5-

They're all getting more fragile for the flippers and leasers
I believe for a keeper you want to fit new genuine Denso injectors to them all around 160k if you know what's good for your engine

Yes - I'm banking on shelling out for new injectors around the 150k mark - but my mechanic is also keeping an eye on the injector values to be sure.
I'm now up to 75k kms in 6 years - so I might have some time to save some $'s before they're due :)

Just an effort to stop more people suing them. We did at work and got our 15/16 models (all out of warranty) swapped for 2020 models. Hilux is the gift that keeps on giving.
