    Just ordered OVTune. Lots of dinero but i'm convinced it's worth it after reading nearly 300 pages of this thread and driving an AT with the tune. I'll load 1.5 for now till 2.0 final is out. Thanks everyone for the input and advice and thanks Ovtune for saving this platform!

    I am hoping with the tune and ADM the truck will feel more "raw"/natural like cable throttle response. haha

    it certainly does for me, that's been part of the target since the beginning. other things help, too. like the ADM as you noted and maybe exhaust if you want to keep uncovering more.

    Since day one I felt like the truck was too "soft" compared to my older Landcruiser, or older 4Runner. I thought maybe it was just the drive by wire/nature of a new car. Thank god you guys all came together. haha

    It will definitely feel more natural and connected.

    Enjoy!

    Who here did the dremel mod on the accumulator?

    Any advice? I'm thinking of doing that on my '19 rather than re-plumbing it.

    I just fabed a brake line. Super easy and then you can convert back if you ever need to. Bleeding is super easy

    I did that on my current truck, so all good.
    With the dremel mod, it all goes back together looking stock.. no need to ever convert back IMO.

    That would be me,super easy,it took me less than 45 minutes start to finish. Just clamp off the rubber line at the master cylinder under the hood,remove accumulator,dissemble,dremel,reassemble,install and bleed. Of course I turn wrenches for a living and have all the right tools and a lift to do it on:D

    Right on, thanks for the advice. I have a flare nut wrench set and access to a lift, all worked out good when I did the ADM on my 16. Looking for a more stealthy solution this time :thumbsup:
    One question, how much "meat" is there that I can channel out between the two holes in the accumulator? Did you ever take a pic of the job you did?

    No I didn't get a pic of the finished job but when you get it apart you will see how much meat you can trim away. You can safely go the depth of the existing holes and about 1/8" to 1/4" wide;)

    Welp, here’s my trial run on the Ginger’s Accumulator. It’ll probably be a backup, bc as you can see the corrosion messed with the o-ring sealing surface..

    Nice! It would be hard to clean up that corrosion, but the pressure should not be high on that seal due to the diameter compared with the 3/16in line diameter.

    Looks like I'm not having to sell my truck immediately after all, so I'm jumping back in. Looks like I haven't missed the 2.0 Beta for 04A71 though, right?
