    Regearing and retuning I get, but if you're not going to bother with a regear I'm not sure what good you're really going to see from a [EDIT] custom tune. Seems like a futile effort. I hope I'm wrong, but I remain skeptical.

    EDIT: custom tune, not tune

    Only 250 miles so far, the driveability and consistency have gone through the roof.

    What I have noticed though is alot more fluctuation in the realtime MPG. When I used to drive to work it would stay almost maxed out to 30 with a couple drastic drops. Now i see its rolling been 20 and 27. The average has been working out the same, but the needle doesn't move from about 1750 RPMs. I don't hear or feel anything that aligns. If anything the engine is more quiet.

    Not a complaint at all, I just find it very interesting. I'd like to know what is really happening in there. As far as I can tell I am not dropping gears, it looks like more or less gas is being used at a given time to hold the needle steady. That could be totally wrong because I don't know much about cars.

    It's already been well established that these trucks are very touchy. A perfect example is @MOC221_ vs my own truck. He needs custom tuning and yet I don't, and this remains true when we run the same maps. Plus, people experience their tune and their driving experience differently. What I feel is just fine, you may think is horrible. Custom tuning becomes an option

    Yes, probably always there, i think i find myself overthinking every little thing after the flash (but i swear i never noticed it before, ever). One of these weekends i will spend an entire day flashing between stock, 1.04r and 1.05, and see what i notice, in the meanwhile I will enjoy 1.05, it is awesome and finally made my truck worth keeping!

    I don't ever plan on flashing back to stock. I liked the progress that was made with 1.04, but as of now I don't think I'll ever flash out of 1.05.

    The one thing that kind of peeves me about 1.05 is that I have to mash the pedal to see anything more than 3000 rpm in my truck. To me the pedal isn’t responsive enough. Gotta wait for custom tuning :)

    Personally, I am all about performance when you talk about tuning. I got onboard with OVT @v1.04, running Shell's 93 octane, as always. I never heard about any "V 1.04R". I did get an update email notice for v 1.05, but I am not clear as to its advantages over the v1.04 I am now running. Could someone elaborate on the differences between the two? If V 1.05 is a "calming-down" of previous tunes, I am unsure if I want that. And since I never had the opportunity to run v 1.03, etc. - Could someone explain the performance characteristics? I like get-up and go.

    In a nutshell, 1.04 was an older version of the tune. 1.04R was for people who got the TSB but still wanted a taste of being tuned again, and so Mat altered some stuff to hold people over until 1.05 dropped.

    Then an initial version of 1.05 for the MT dongle crowd dropped. Then Mat ended up rewriting pretty much all the code and this new version of 1.05 that everyone is talking about is the result.

    Hey all. I got the Tactrix Openport 2.0 adapter, paid the fees and sent all my info off to OV but just now found out that 1.05 does not support a 2019 MT? I have a 2019 Pro with the MT. Anyone care to chime in on what options I have. I was wanting to go with the 91 octane tune. Also what happens if by accident you get a lower octane fuel in your tank. I live in one of the two states that has attendants pump gas for you. I have seen numerous times where they put gasoline into diesel vehicles so this is a very valid concern.

    So I try and follow this thread for updates, but damn it goes fast and I miss things.

    Any ETA for shipping out the handhelds with 1.05? I had purchased a while ago and told Matt I would prefer to wait for the handheld vice receiving a dongle with 1.04.

    You need to follow the install instructions and get the registry files from Mat. He's currently working on the MT tune for 1.05 (we hope) so right now, I'd just follow the instructions and get the info sent off to Mat so he can create your registry file and send you all the 1.05 tunes when he's got them completed.

    Last I knew it he still needs the ECU files for the 2019 MT but it will be supported soon. I'd just hang tight for a few days until 1.05 is finished rolling out to the majority of people and then I'm sure 2019 ECUs will follow shortly after.

    If there's no updates in a week or so, I'd contact mat @ support@ovtune.zendesk.com

    Only email 1 time and he'll get back to you as he goes through tickets, sometimes it can take a couple days with the volume of emails right now.

    This should help (at least if the attendant can read).
