    Very happy with the 2.0 refresh. As someone else mentioned, shifts are way smoother now. I haven’t done the ADM (have the parts to do it) but almost feel like I don’t need to anymore. The hesitations were resolved in the first beta 2.0 tune and are still absent. :thumbsup:

    So far so good, not a single complaint.

    Finally flashed the newest 2.0 87 file on my 2016 with 04B13. Previous 2.0 beta was pretty good except for a kind of dull spot around 2800-3100 RPM. So far this file seems to have all the advantages of the last 2.0 test and has gotten rid of that dull power area. Haven’t noticed any surges or dullness so far.

    Not much to complain about really. Shifts so damn smooth now. I can granny drive the gears pretty damn smooth around town.

    Is anyone sending data logs to ovtune? If so, what are they looking for? I've got miles on now, and would love to help.

    I would send data log, but the logger keeps closing when I try to connect

    I found that if I start the data logger before I start my truck it usually works. Turn the key to ignition, start up the data logger then start the truck.

    If I try to start the logger after its already running it doesn't work.

    2.0 Beta feedback after 400 miles this weekend....

    2.0 Beta 04A71 (Ticket 10087)

    Pros:

    -Smooth idle
    -Throttle response
    -Smooth shifting
    -Linear power band
    -MPG on the highway was excellent

    Con:

    -The only con for me that remains is the 1st gear low rpm throttle control/tip in. I took the truck off into some loose rocks/sand this weekend and it was'nt as controllable as 1.05 FOB93. With the 1.05 file you could creep along without feathering the clutch and just apply small amounts of pedal when crawling over terrain to keep from stalling out. It was great for offroad driving. If you do this with 2.0 the truck is a little twitchy. It has either settled in some with miles or my right foot is getting accustomed to it.

    overall the 2.0 beta is my favorite file yet. The pros listed above far outweigh the con for me. If i could have the low rpm control of 1.05 with this 2.0 beta i would be thrilled.

    Great job Mat!

    Thanks for this, it looks like the new files are great!

    One question, WRT the twitchiness - are we talking low range?

    One question I have is: how does this new beta effect overall reliability? I would assume there have been some serious manipulation with timing.
    The way I can use 5th and 6th now is truly outstanding, but I am just wondering how this effects the engine and transmission? I mean, I know with a MT it's probably not as noticeable as a AT, with all the computer stuff, but I assume there are still sensores with a MT that the ECU is using for info.

    I hope this makes sense. I know Mat has said he is dedicated to reliability and drieabilty over sheer power, however, I'm sure there have been significant adjustments made to the ECU mapping.
