    Sorry didn’t mean to be an A hole. If cost is an issue here’s a calc for ROI based on mpg savings. 0AB883F8-4A5D-43C1-A04A-A265B74036E5.jpg

    It’s not about HP it’s about the shifting and torque gains. This truck really doesn’t need more HP, just better utilization of it...which is what the tune does

    One could argue the tune is cheaper than taking the loss on a trade in if you are that unhappy with the drive-ability. No way you aren't at least losing 2k on a trade because the dealer needs a profit. Its a calculated risk on investment.

    The tune is also cheaper than the TRD Exhaust and intake which plenty of people buy and they do nothing...

    There are not many options for 3rd Gen power increases are there? Cold air intakes don't do much. The only exhaust system I've heard that makes a difference is Dirty Deeds. Pedal Commander, Sprint Booster & Shift Sense Pro don't create power. URD has his exhaust manifolds which are not "Check Engine Light Friendly". Same with Ovtune. The best Power option is Ovtune Turbo's. Now that's going to be Pricey. The Tune works great. Your other option is utilizing the power you have by regearing but that's a hole nuther story.
    I hesitated buying due to the price. I also had to buy a laptop and figure out how in the world to make this happen (not very computer savvy) but, I did it and have had no regrets.

    It sounds like you dont know what the tune actually does. Re-read post #1 and re-read it again then decide.

    that is right, we don't need HP, we need more torque or moved the available torque to a lower rpm what is the only way to feel like V8 or to compensate bigger tires. That is exactly what I feel with 91base, and if we get the same gain at torque with 87octane, that would be wonderful.

    After running 1.05.1 93 performance for 200+ miles in all driving conditions besides off road, I’m still a base tune guy. They daily drivability of the base tunes sealed the deal for me. I love how the performance tunes truly make the truck come alive, but they personally are just not for me. I’m still all stock tires, wheels and suspension.

    Now my next test will be 1.05.1 91 base with 93oct or 93 base with 93oct. I’ve always been a big fan of 91 tunes on 93oct even with my pro-tuned wrx sti before my Tacoma.

    You can always use higher octane fuel with any lower octane tune.

    I was told back with my WRX Sti (which the motor was a ticking time bomb) that the higher octane on lower octane tune was better for knock protection. Not sure if that applies to the Tacoma or not.
