    Not necessarily, but your post making it sound like we aren't bothering due to scions and corollas is just false. We have been posting updates (for certain ECUs, IDs, reasons, etc) every month this year so far, and will continue as things progress.

    Did you get any time to work with a m/t to sew in person what was happening? Seems lots of people came forward willing to offer their trucks.

    Regarding what issue? what people post on here vs what we see on our tickets are two very different things.

    I realize you need tickets for real issues, but I think most of us MT folks are interested in the list of requests you had asked for a while back. I know some of it requires a truck on the dyno and there were a couple willing participants.

    You said before that finding things like dead throttle on down shifting etc were difficult to find without a truck to recreate the situation. I havent seen any feedback on this. And to the other point of your other work you just recently posted about moving your mazda stuff to another site. Im just curious if there is still any priority with the fine tuning for the m/t tune. So many people having to use 93 octane to have the 91 work for them. Then the rest of us are having to use 87 tune with 91 to avoid some unsavory stumbling.

    If people begin to get impatient its not because we are a bunch of children expecting instant gratification but rather waiting for these said improvements while watching you post about anything but

    I've been working on this stuff for the last few months, but it's not ready for any release yet. I do need more time with a MT truck. All mazda stuff is completely handled by someone else, separate from anything I am doing. The MT is still as much of a priority for us as it has been.
    Other than bug fixes and update for torque converter, the AT and MT are about on the same page right now, with those bugs being released each month up to this point.

    This stumbling I do not have a solid answer yet, unless it is the stumble feeling around 3000 RPM prior to ACIS activation.
    All of that stuff (87 revised tune, ACIS, etc) is yet to be released on either AT or MT.



    Since January this year I haven't posted any release for AT or MT except for 1.05 and a recent fix to 2019 files, torque converter stumbling (which tooks us a long time to solve).


    It ended up not happening because the dyno was unavailable, due to things outside of my control or even the dyno owners control. But once our dyno gets here there is no waiting on anyone.



    Recently I have been working on the Tundra, and the new P5UDS ecu in the 2019 Corolla. But I do that at the same time that I am doing Tacoma stuff. Like mon-tues Tundra, Wed-Thurs Tacoma, Fri- Corolla. For example.

    So have you had a chance to work with a m/t truck?

    Only remotely at the moment. I have not had one back on the dyno yet. I also don't have all of the code ready for all the changes being worked on. Some of the RAMP dumps have helped expedite this, but that was pretty recent.

    what has already been worked on is
    - rev hang
    - single map torque
    - acis

    but I haven't released it yet. It's done, but not out.

    It's not so much about being nasty, but just giving time for results to happen. I'd love for this motor to be like the one in our old saab or the wife's Subaru, but that's gonna take some time. We are a big leg up already though.

    You should post everyday on the dyno forum about the missing dyno.

    I know this might have been asked before, but this thread is so big.

    I have a genuine tactrix i bought to apply the toyota ecu update.

    Can I use the tactrix if i buy ov tune? If so, does that mean that i need dongless or a dongle?

    Now that it has been confirmed rev hang will be taken care of soon, im going to lay down the cash and just buy it.

    You do not need the full kit, but you to ping OVT to get the right price.

    The new tune will come soon.
