A correctly functioning airbox on your 4WD is essential for supplying clean air to the engine, optimising the combustion process and preventing engine wear and damage. Combining function with performance, Torqit’s 79 Series Stainless Steel Airbox has been designed for maximum airflow and efficiency. This means a potential increase in power and fuel economy, and total peace of mind when driving through water* and dust.
Torqit’s 79 Series Airbox is built to house a flat paper filter 1.3 times larger than standard- the same size as the 200 Series Landcruiser filter. Unlike many airboxes on the market, Torqit’s Airbox uses a raised and tapered lid to increase the total air capacity, and as a result maximise airflow and filtration by utilising the entire surface area of the larger filter.
Thick 304 grade stainless steel keeps the airbox structurally rigid when exposed to heat and water, while two bolts and a spring-hinge maintain tension around the seal and allow easy access to the filter. Manufactured in Australia and built to last, Torqit’s 79 Series Airbox offers maximum airflow and performance without compromising on effective filtration to keep your Landcruiser’s engine in peak condition.
A brushed stainless steel finish adds a distinctive look to the 79 Series Airbox, accentuating Torqit’s precision TIG welding and the laser-cut, stainless steel branded logo.
Powder coating creates a highly durable and scratch resistant finish for an extra layer of protection. Available in satin black, this option ties in neatly with other fixings beneath the bonnet and also features a laser-cut stainless steel Torqit logo.
79 SERIES AIRBOX FEATURES
304 Grade Stainless Steel
The high percentage of chromium and nickel present in 304 grade steel make it extremely resistant to rust, stress, and harsh conditions. For the under-bonnet area which is constantly exposed to high temperatures and water, this heavy duty material is the ideal choice for maximum durability and a long lifespan.
Thick Stainless Steel
Stainless steel up to 2mm thick keeps the airbox rigid and robust. The thickness maintains the structural integrity of the steel even after bending, and offers peace of mind against cracking and warping when exposed to high temperatures under the bonnet.
Raised and Tapered Lid
Aftermarket airboxes regularly increase the filter size without increasing the volume of the air box, meaning the bigger filter has minimal effect on overall performance. The raised lid on Torqit’s airbox takes advantage of the larger filter by increasing the total air capacity beneath the lid for maximum airflow and filtration.
Flat Paper Filter
Torqit’s 79 Series air box uses a flat paper Ryco filter- a surface area which is 1.3 times larger than standard. Designed and tested in Australia, this filter has undergone in-depth testing procedures to not only meet all OEM standards, but guarantee maximum efficiency and airflow, while withstanding harsh Australian conditions.
Integrated Water Drainage Valve
A Donaldson Water Evacuator prevents engine damage by draining out any water which enters the airbox.
