    driving in a jam sucks. driving in a jam with a manual sucks less.

    I can assure you that a manual can be driven using a crutch when leg is broken.

    Man I love this 1.04R.

    The tsb is good but 1.04R kicks it up a notch. It begs to be driven faster off the line. Can’t really baby it. Power kicks in right away. Wondering what 1.05 would bring. Does anyone know?

    If I don't have a laptop, could I run a USB extension from my desktop computer out to the garage and flash the ECU?

    I’d run an extension cord and setup your computer next to the truck. The usb extenders vary in delivery. Meaning it could f up you flash.

    There's actually an AT guy that has posted about how he really does use his desktop with monitor out in the garage to flash his truck lol you'll be fine, it's been done :):rofl:

    But as someone above said, i wouldn't use a USB extension. Just lug the thing out there

    OK cool, thanks for the info. I'm gonna order as soon as Matt is taking orders again...and 1.05 is out. I'll report back how it works with a desktop.

    I'd order when he is taking orders again (is he not right now?), independent of 1.05 being released or not. As a customer, you get all tunes for free anyway, and if it gets delayed for a long time, what's the harm in running a previous version? 1.03C and up have been excellent map updates, and we're on 1.04A and 1.04R now, depending on if you've updated to the newer TSB ECU version

    I thought he was not taking orders at the moment so he can focus on 1.05. I could be wrong...
    I was denied by the dealership for the TSB....no love for the MT guys, so I'm "chomping at the bit" for a new tune!!!

    If you install Techstream that Mat so generously provided us with, you can flash the TSB yourself. If you want to pm me, i can hook you up with the relevant links and even the TSB file for the updated calibration

    For what it's worth though, the update isn't required for 1.05...just an ECU ID difference really. Up to you

    As for him not taking orders while prepping 1.05, I believe it. Just didn't know, my bad

    You have to shoot an email to Mat. I emailed him last night, and he sent me the files within a couple of hours.

    Just got my truck back after a couple of weeks away, so I'm going to load the tune tonight.
    We'll see if @mZiggy is telling the truth. :D

    (1) Has anyone compared the 87 vs 91 Octane tunes? Much difference?

    (2) mZiggy, you're a bad influence on me. LOL
