3″ DPF BACK EXHAUST FOR TOYOTA 2.8L HILUX: 07/2015 – 07/2020
PERFORMANCE GAIN: 9KW / 13NM
The 2.8L Toyota Hilux performs as well off-road as it does as a tradie’s workhorse, and Torqit’s 3” DPF Back Performance Exhaust has the toughness to back it up. Tried and tested in the harshest of terrain, it has proven itself as one of the thickest and most durable mandrel bent systems in Australia.
Our 2.8L Hilux exhaust is manufactured from mandrel bent, 304 grade brushed stainless steel, up to 2mm thick. The thickness prevents the exhaust from cracking when traversing rough terrain, and produces a deep note without cabin drone. Coming standard with a resonator, Torqit’s 3” Hilux Performance Exhaust maximises the sound output of your vehicle. The laser cut flanges are also manufactured from 304 grade steel, and are welded inside and out for extra strength to withstand heavy duty off-roading.
When developing an exhaust system for the Toyota Hilux, we used high flow componentry and thick steel pipe with a wider diameter to improve the performance as well as deepen the note. A big part of performance is controlling your Exhaust Gas Temperature’s (EGT’s), and as the owner of a vehicle fitted with a DPF, no doubt you are aware there are few things which damage a diesel engine quicker than excessive EGT’s. The Torqit DPF back exhaust for the 2.8L Toyota Hilux aims to lower these EGT’s by improving the flow of gases and reducing back pressure, which increases the engine efficiency and fuel economy.*
Torqit’s Hilux Performance Exhaust bolts directly onto the back of the DPF, keeping your vehicle warranty intact and ensuring your exhaust complies with all regulations and insurance requirements. Not only does Torqit’s DPF back exhaust enhance your vehicles touring and towing ability, it is the ideal alternative to changing the vehicles performance through illegal means such as deleting the DPF.
PERFORMANCE EXHAUST FEATURES
Thick Stainless Steel
An exhaust system is exposed to many varied elements, including extreme heat and rough terrain. To handle these harsh conditions, we use stainless steel that is up to 2mm thick to maintain structural strength even after bending. Being extremely durable and difficult to crack, you can go off-road with peace of mind that your Torqit Performance Exhaust system will stay intact. Steel thickness not only affects the strength of an exhaust system, but also the sound it will produce- the thinner the steel, the tinnier the note. As among the thickest mandrel bent systems available in Australia, Torqit Performance Exhausts produce a deep note without cabin drone.

304 Grade Stainless Steel
The highest quality steel used in exhaust systems is 304 grade stainless, which is renowned for its high strength, corrosion resistance, and easy maintenance. It is known as an austenitic stainless steel, meaning due to a high percentage of chromium and nickel it is extremely resistant to rust, stress, and harsh conditions such as high temperatures. The excellent properties of Torqit’s 304 grade stainless demonstrate its strength in comparison to the 409 grade stainless commonly used in the automotive industry. For heavy duty strength and resistance to corrosion, 304 grade stainless steel is the superior choice. A 4WD owner who undertakes water crossings, backs their vehicle into the water to unload a boat, or lives by the coast will especially benefit from our stainless steel systems.
Internal & External Welds
High quality welds are essential to avoiding structural fatigue on joints, stopping cracks from forming, and preventing exhaust gas leaks. All Torqit Performance Exhausts are TIG welded internally and externally, to reinforce the system for maximum strength. TIG welding is complex and more time consuming than the usual MIG welding technique used on exhausts; however it is a key part of creating a premium system. Torqit’s welds are extremely precise, higher quality, and create a beautiful clean finish with no welding spatter.
Mandrel Bent System
Torqit’s Mandrel Bender uses a flexible mandrel rod to support the pipe internally and prevent crinkling as it is bent. This maintains a smooth and constant diameter, improving the efficiency of your engine. With Torqit’s in house mandrel bender, we can maintain the structural integrity and thickness of our systems, prevent restricted exhaust flow, and reduce back pressure. State of the art programming means each exhaust is precisely replicated to follow the correct path, and guarantees accurate fitment. Check out the Torqit Mandrel Bender in action.
