    It is not a difficult task for a computer. Our old laptop used to take 10min to boot up and launch the Flash Manager program but loaded the TSB and OVT tunes just fine.

    That said, a lot of folks here can recommend a cheap Windows machine that you can get.

    Also, someone mentioned using a 30ft miniUSB cable to go from their desktop to the OVT Tactrix adapter. :D

    :popcorn: hey my MT 3 gen colleagues
    Waiting patiently for the HH I ordered over the weekend sale. Quite frankly my 19 drives well. Haven't experienced some issues I've read about., just curious about this tune stuff. if I could gain just 1 MPG , currently at 17.6 @4k, it would be cool. We shall see what this thing does...

    I can't make any guarantees, but many of us on the 2.0 Beta tunes are seeing anywhere between a 2 and 4 mpg boost along with better performance.

    Also, ADM (accumulator delete mod) if you haven't already...

    2-4 mpgs sounds great, and better performance! I'm no longer waiting patiently for it. I kinda just got used to the clutch, it did feel a bit strange at first.

    don't settle for dysfunction. get direct with your clutch the way it's designed to be used. you are living with slop. of course i've been working for 3 freaking years getting all the slop out of my truck. :rolleyes:

    You did register for TW... We're professionals at spending other people's money to mod their trucks! :rofl:

    The ADM is 100% reversible if you save the parts you take off.

    Since no one else has asked, what are you hoping to accomplish with this closed loop patch? More precise control of fueling in all driving conditions. Getting rid of all of Toyotas stock fueling maps. Or is this something that would help with boosted applications. Is the stock wide band o2 sensor accurate enough. I had heard that Toyotas wide bands aren't great.

    These are indeed exciting times for Tacoma owners and enthusiast. I waited 12 years for someone to crack the ECU on my 05 taco. With this gen I don't have to wait at all.
