If you own a VDJ70 Toyota LandCruiser, or have ridden shotgun as a passenger, you might have noticed they like to rev, especially at highway speeds. Now, one-way to rectify this is to fit larger diameter tyres to reduce the final drive ratio, but this will reduce the amount of low-range gearing available. The more exciting way to correct this issue, is the fitment of an overdrive unit such as this one from Marks 4WD. They claim this overdrive is a complete bolt-in solution, and can be engaged in any gear at speeds over 35km/h which reduces engine RPM by 22% from 2430rpm at 100km/h to 1890rpm at 100km/h. As a result, Marks 4WD claim owners will experience reduced fuel consumption, and less engine noise. However, considering how sweet that V8 sounds, some might view that as a negative.
