    This 1000% . My 22re 4runner can get going on a steep hill better. Seems the more throttle i give it, the more it struggles to accelerate. That poor clutch. funny thing is, when i bought the truck with the extended warranty, they made a point the say "this does not include the clutch" multiple times.

    I have the kit, just haven't had time to tear into the truck yet. I'll do it this summer for sure. The ADM combined with 2.0 should be as good as it gets!

    Just now getting around to reading some of this. Not all 579 pages, mind you....

    Thinking when I'm back from my trip at the end of June, it'll be time to seriously dig into the OVTune sandbox.

    I'll bring my tacoma down to MO next time - 10 seconds in the drivers seat is all the convincing it takes. It is a completely different truck.

    That's what I hear from quite a few people, even with the manual (hence this thread).

    Without looking around too much (lunch break, on mobile) I haven't seen the latest numbers from OVTune about gains and responses and such. Any quit or links available?

    @Shellshock looking forward to it!

    Yep.

    I mean, we still gripe about some stuff.. but the difference in throttle alone is massive.
