    Wrong. It can release at any time. I put the eta as that only to stop people asking for etas.

    This is true, but I'm going to wait for feedback. I've waited almost 2 years for this, so no rush now. I've been on stock tune since November 2015 a so few more months/years won't hurt.

    I can see how you haven't pushed it off a cliff by now since you're on 04B13.

    04B10 was just plain awful.

    09/15 build date, bought it in October.

    The pain was real.

    No offense to anyone who has posted, but I only read the first few pages and the last 2. I'm not real interested in reading over 500 pages, so if my questions have been answered previously I apologize.

    Just got a 19 and was not impressed when I went to back up a hill with about a 3000 or 4000 pound trailer. Either smoke your clutch keeping it way over reved or stall it or use 4 lo. Looking for more power at lower rpms for starting with a load, and mpg doesn't hurt either, but mainly power for towing. I have no emissions regulations where I live or wired government inspections, so I can modify as much as I want (other than warranty).

    How much does this help with low end power? Of those early users, have you had any engine issues related to running at a higher performance level, I've burned up a few diesels with tuners while towing. Does this product effect the warranty on my new ride? Anyone use this combined with other performance options like headers or k&n intake, if so was there a noticeable difference?

    Huge difference in low end power

    Backing a big trailer is still going to somewhat suck because reverse is so tall, but it’s definitely improved. I typically use 4lo or there is a 2lo mod currently being worked on

    I’ve got 50k+ miles while tuned and haven’t had any issues and over 5000 miles towing. I went back to the factory tune once just to compare while towing and I’ll never do it again. The change it power delivery is very noticeable and there’s an increase in fuel economy as well.

    Mostly stuff I built.

    Also if you will do the clutch accumulator delete it will help for a quicker/crisper application of the clutch and prevent smoking the clutch as much. The accumulator delays the clutch application ever so slightly to cushion application. In short it is a nanny comfort feature that is totally useless for actually truck use. @Shellshock is on point on his information given as well.

    Thanks for the replies, I know this is a old thread. I think I going to get the kit next month. Will also have to look into deleting the accumulator. I came from a 02 Dakota for my little town truck and I was shocked at the difference when towing. This has a much nicer ride but even with a blown head gasket my old Dakota will still out tow my new ride. I actually got pissed off and hooked on to the trailer with the Dakota because I couldn't get up the hill slow enough to weave around trees. Any improvement has to be better.

    Thread may be old but active. Also the manual transmission guys around here are a tight knit group and tend to take care of our kindred spirits.

    Ya, not many people can even drive a standard anymore. Guess that is why they started calling them manual transmissions.

    That's funny, I still have my old 02 Dodge Dakota too. Still enjoy driving it around town as a beater truck, but like the Tacoma on longer drives

    So i did a thing. I decided to put my factory exhaust back on (about to do a 5k mile road trip) i had mbrp single 3". Not only am i appreciating the quieter ride (no drone) but i have gained a lot of low end torque back. Making it nicer to shift and drive casually. Ive had the exhaust since before loading the tune so first time with factory exhaust. Its great! Even my mpg has improved.(could be from lower shift points)

    Your getting better mpg & low end torque with a factory exhaust, over a 3" custom? Seems strange, is it because you hooked your O2 sensor back up?
