95% of dealer techs would never find it. But if it's like other ECM's, it has a running count of how many times it has been flashed. Not sure if this shows up in Techstream or not when they go to flash it again. Just throwing that out there as a difference between a handheld and a piggy back tuner.

I personally look forward to seeing what this will be able to do/control - and what the cost will be.

No, but Bully Dog plans to release a whole bunch of older applications after the current models are on the market.

We sell 100's of these to Ford, Nissan and Jeep guys with no issues. Worse comes to worse swap the ECM.

Not sure on that yet.

Here's the thread that's been pretty lively about it so far. Glad to see one on a Tacoma Forum!
I'm sure if you get real bored you can look through that thread and it will answer most questions.
Lyle from Bully Dog actually jumped onto the thread and started answering questions!

Standing corrected. Bully Dog gave me an answer I had to the question of whether you could flash the computer and not keep it plugged in. The answer, yes you can un plug it and the program sticks. Very happy to hear this!
