    Exactly my thoughts. Honestly, if the tune doesn't bring me some more satisfaction, I am afraid this will be the shortest I have owned a vehicle - I average 15 years and 180K miles on my vehicles. This includes a 1992 Toyota 4x4 with a 22RE 5-speed and a 2003 4Runner. Both were absolutely bulletproof the whole time I owned them.

    Just checking, has anyone heard from OVTune guy lately? There's a rumor on that one forum that he's layering up clothing, I hope to/for Christ that's not true.

    Just completed my flash. I was a little nervous as I was getting all kinds of warnings on the dash when it was going through the process. Truck started right up and seems to be fine. Letting it idle for about 5+ minutes then will take it for a spin. Starting out with 87 base.

    I have 2000 miles starting next week, considering running 87 fob for it.

    The warnings are completely normal. You will see them every time that you flash.

    Definitely! I am back on 87 FOB. Doing the DTC and LV Resets after the tune loaded changed it dramatically for me. All for the better.

    Thanks, tonered for putting my mind at ease.

    Just got back from a short drive. WOW - this is the way the truck should have come from Toyota. No more "limp dick" throttle. Had to learn to coordinate the throttle and the clutch all over again.
    Well done, Mat!:burnrubber: Fingers crossed my truck doesn't go back to it's old ways.:fingerscrossed:

    What is meant by the DTC and LV resets? Diagnostic Trouble Code?

    I'm also curious about what the dtc and lv reset are!
