    From experience, its really a wash for long trips..really depends on wind direction, traffic, etc. I just keep my driving consistent and not worry about it.

    You can not read the ECU once a tune is flashed. This is part of the intellectual property protections associated with the software.

    Read and identify are separate functions. You can identify. You cannot read as it is protected with 1.05 and later

    Thanks for the reply. I do have a 2016 with 04B04 so I select 2017 04B04 when I download tunes. I can download and flash no problem. Think I’ll send in a ticket.

    I was attempting to identify. I thought it showed correctly after I restarted. Can you not identify?

    No, you can. I read LDS 77s post and thought he was trying to read the ECU, but apparently he he must have meant read.

    That played a small part in updating to it. Figured it wouldn’t hurt anything

    I would think a lot of peeps updated also because some guys were saying the performance tune tip in seemed milder on 1.05.1. I thought OV said something about it may feel that way due to some changes in the TC, but that no change was made to throttle response.

    Any recommendations on 87 performance or base tune? Just got it, it’ll be my first time using it!

    Its really up to you, and what your truck has/weighs.
    I started with 87 base and it was a drastic improvement over stock. Then I was curious and went to 87 perf, and over time it became annoying with the sensitive tip-in. Felt like driving a fire engine going forward (which I'm used to), but waaaaayy to scary to reverse with. With my 2 year old nephew moving back (I was scared to reverse into my sisters place and he'd be playing outside - the tip-in in reverse was crazy.. its seriously jumpy and it wasn't worth the risk of him even if he's supervised), I decided to re-tune to 91 base for a softer tip in but a higher octane to see if theres a difference. Drives better than 87 base IMO, the 3.5L motor seems to enjoy a higher octane.

    Try one out and if you don't like it you can always reflash to a different tune.

    Mind you, my truck is lifted with heavy 33" Goodyear MTR's.

    Good luck, I'm sure you'll appreciate it over a stock tune!

    1.05.1 seems to have finallly settled after 700 miles and it's running much better but during the learning phase it was very harsh.

    I had a scary ocurrence at about 500 miles where I was carrying 600 pounds of equipment in my truck bed and the vehicle would have a really hard time accelerating. I mean driving around and then WOT to speed up and it would accelerate at a snails pace, very dangerous and scary. Haven't put that weight back but I hope that's gone.

    This happens with the truck even while unloaded but not nearly as bad, happens randomly when coming out of turns, going up hills, etc. You floor it, and the vehicle is not going nearly as fast as it can go.

    @OVTune once Erom 2.0 releases, this acceleration deadzone that seems to randomly happen should be taken care of correct?

    That’s weird. I run 1.05.1 87 base. Mounted my 1200lb Four Wheel Camper 3 days ago and it runs great. Hope you get it sorted out. Are you on Performance? Performance Tunes do crazy things to my truck. I will only run base tunes.

    Considering there are so many different scenarios where something could happen that would be impossible to find and sort through code I cannot guarantee. If you're turning, give it too much throttle by even the slightest degree, wheel speeds are different, ecu will not give you much. I can't tune that out. etc.

    2.0 patch will have everything that we can possibly do to make it as drive-able, consistent, etc as possible.

    2.0 patch is actively being worked on and will include all of the unreleased stuff we've been doing.
    ACIS, torque patch(MT), Rev Hang (MT), Shift code (AT), Torque code (AT), etc. etc. etc.
    I do not have a time line on it yet. The goal with 2.0 patch is to finally stop fighting this transmission engine combo so it's going to take as long as it takes.

    Are the gear tunes going to be part of the 2.0 patch or released before?
