    Possible. I didn't see it. Same thing happened in Sept when I installed 1.X FOB.

    Today I take the first longer ride. Can't wait!!:thumbsup:

    Honestly the first time since purchase in August. After all the various mods, ADM, 4.88 gears, etc I can shift as I have every other vehicle for the last 45 years.

    And it goes like a raped ape.

    The best part for me is that after 2000 mi or so the tune is holding. No learning to be stupid by the computer. Still pulls hard. Very stable idle with no low end bog. Even works smooth in 4 low with no bucking. Much easier to social distance any other cars on the road now.

    How long does it take once you submit the ID to be able to actually use the program?

    It depends. The REG file comes out of the UK. Other than the time difference, OVT has to submit a request, received the file back, and deliver it to you. Folks have seen very fast turn times, like a day. I think it was two days when I swapped computers and needed a new file. Some folks have had longer waits.

    I haven't seen any posts about the situation with the virus quarantine and such.

    In the past, @OVTune has done a pretty good job with responding to emails and such. I’ve been waiting for a response and the 2.0 OFT files for almost 3 week now.. I’m trying to be patient but it’s getting harder and harder cuz I’m running out of things to occupy my free time :playball:

    That’s unfortunate. I was expecting a few days at most.

    I am beyond behind right now, and going through tickets on an as needed / emergency first basis. Virginia shut down schools for the rest of the year, my wife works full time, and I got 2 kids at home, so work is a bit messy at the moment, and there is just simply a ton of tickets.

    Wife is a nurse practitioner and has to go into the office everyday. I have a 4 month old and 4 year old with me at the house and I am working remotely but we got lucky as one of the daycare teacher is able to come over and help out.

    Smart kid!

    They both have driven the Taco in a parking lot and did pretty well. I still can't get the oldest to try it on the road. She does love the Mazda that is currently killing our wallet for both payments and insurance.

    If I had to guess, that doesn’t qualify lol. I’m just waiting for the 2.0 OFT files. Hang in there. He will get to you and if it’s anything like 1.05, it WILL be worth it!

    Im sure youre chock full of proud father moments at this point haha, luckily for me my '18 will be well worn in by the time they start asking me to teach them how to drive it. And if they dont then i know i failed the entire manual community, theyll probably just bother their mother for the tundra haha...all i own are sticks, so they dont have a choice on my side of things.
