Re: 2011 hilux d4d 4x4 brakes go into antilock in wet

Welcome!

Easy fix - don't break so hard! In the wet you must be gentle on the brakes or the abs will be activated.

Also if you have oversize rims and tyres fitted it will influence braking negatively.

The 22R responds VERY well to gasflowing and a mild cam. I'm sure you have been visiting www.lcengineering.com? First do a branch and 57mm freeflow exhaust and if you still lust after more power, go the gasflow route. I would keep the original carb, I don't think the gains with efi is worth the costs.
