    So kinda late to the game but with the latest Beta releases what has been the expected gains for HP and gas mileage?

    I saw the initial estimates and info on the first pages but didn't know what has changed if any.

    None. It is a broad development test for the tune. No expectations other than how it feels and if it reveals any issues.

    From https://www.ovtuned.com/pages/2-0-public :


    "Mileage requirement: At least 50 miles for all necessary trimming to take place

    Sounds good, so the numbers highlighted on Ovtune's site is still accurate for the updates made.

    AFAIK, no 2.0 numbers have been posted other than Dump Tube testing, which this isn't.

    Technically, my emails didn't receive a request number. He's already replied to the last one that did receive a request number. Lol

    It doesn't matter if it was registered or not. You still need to contact Mat (OVTune) for a new registration key and pay the license fee ;)

    And since that is a dongleless setup,the license is tied to your laptop not your vehicle.

    I am interested in an in-depth review of your new ride. I assume you also got a MT?
    Spill the beans! :)

    Updated 2.0 flashed, idelig now.
    Curious how the initial throttle response compares to the previous file. If all goes well, I'll submit a ticket for Mat then post some feedback after a min of 100 miles.

    In depth?
    Let's put it this way, the 19 is a much better vehicle than my 16 was when new.

    The 19 doesn't rattle, shake, buzz, kazoo shriek (door seals), or shed parts like my '16 did.
    It's much quieter, but that is to be expected since it's a double cab and the Toyos are not what you'd call "off road ready" lol.
    The hood skin doesn't do a wavy dance at highway speeds, the rear diff doesn't howl (yet), the engine doesn't try and kill you when trying to take off in a situation where some power is required off the line.

    I know it's not an apples/apples comparison, but this Sport has much better on road manners than my '16 OR did. Smoother, handles better.
    At the end of the day though, it still needs OVtune and accumulator delete/dremel to make the most of the drivetrain IMO. Low end is noticeably weaker on 04B41 OEM as compared to any OVT FOB file. Throttle response and midrange power is however, noticeably better than early OEM calibrations. The clutch is just as vague and delayed as ever, and will remain that way until the accumulator is dealt with.

    Just some opinions and observations...

    I am, but the access cab had it's good points. Fold those little "seats" up and just fire whatever you want in the back right on the floor, no rear seat cushions n stuff getting in the way. I do like the storage the DC offers you though, both behind the seat back and underneath the cushions. It'll just take some getting used to.
    ..oh and now I can actually put more than two people in my truck lol..
    I can feel the extra weight of the DC, it's not quite as light on it's feet as the AC was...
