As the VMN body lift kit has evolved over the years, a number of additional options have been developed to finish off your installation to a factory finish standard. These accessories include:
VMN Intercooler Spacer
The VMN Intercooler spacer for the Toyota D4D engine with top mount intercooler raises the engine cover up 50mm and encloses the airflow from the bonnet scoop so the air is contained and still flows through the intercooler to ensure factory performance of this vital part is unaffected.
While we were at it, we made provision to allow mounting of an intercooler fan in the space created. We created this accessory because when travelling at low speed, offroad engine revs are disproportionate to the speed of the car. Therefore, an enormous amount of heat rises from the motor and forms a heat sink around the intercooler.
Under these conditions, there is insufficient air passing through the bonnet scoop to allow the intercooler do its job which is to cool the air entering the turbo. Cooler air is denser so more oxygen is available to ensure combustion of diesel. Unburnt diesel is one of the key contributors to high exhaust gas temperatures. Exhaust gas temperature is the single most important engine parameter on any diesel engine and if allowed to rise too high, can damage the turbo and even the engine itself.
Mud Skirt Kits
In 2019, we released a mud skirt kit that replaces the factory plastic sheet that keeps mud in the wheel arch out of the engine bay. Made from 1.5mm insertion rubber and cut on a water jet machine, this is the perfect final finishing item to keep your car looking good under the hood after a body lift.
