    I’ve got 100 miles around town on the new 04b31 5.29 reg beta. Shifting feels good and the truck seems to accelerate better(smoother). MPG looks better too (so far). My truck is not on any recall lists, so I’m not to worried about anything for now. Overall, everything feels really good. I have no issue with the “stock” feel at the beginning of pedal press..

    If i were a betting man, id say he'll either make a mega post regarding all things involving breakdowns (like his current giant update post , but with some good questions answered in it)....or this thread will become irrelevant and an entirely new thread focused on his new direction will be created. Which im sure he would link here anyway to guide us all to it.

    So, I did a "purge local data" in P5Flash and wasn't thinking.. It trashed my copy of the OLE tune I liked.. Any chance someone has a copy of:
    04B04+-+2.0+EROM+-+Shift+Build+16012+-+Base+pcm

    They could share with me?
    Please? :D

    Doesn’t really matter. Why you trying to call him out? What’s that going to accomplish?

    Fact is, this is what’s going to happen. Like it or leave it. I can promise you that 99% of people will like it and not leave it

    ??? check in your download file - the purge local data should not delete tunes from the file they are downloaded / saved to. Or at least it did not do that when I did the purge function. ???

    I've been working on the software for a few years.
    I've been talking about it periodically over the last several months, not the last 3 years.

    2.0 being the final update has been mentioned since the beginning of 2.0 being made.

    So this stuff happening isn't really "new" it's just happening now, instead of planned closer to the end of the year.

    Nobody remembers when I posted about software to tune your own truck?

    I'm copying what I said in the MT thread :
    The chain of events leading up to right now is just crazy. First, hardware supply chain issues, software update issues (italy), Supply chain backlog, CoronaVirus shelter in place orders, Kids school closed for the rest of the year, 80+% sharp decline in sales, my wife's job, who she works for a company in California, has put her on a temporary hold / no work for weeks or longer... (and my daughter goes to a local private school so even with school cancellation, tuition doesn't stop). This isn't going to stop us, it's just changing some things.

    All of this pushed our time line to transition to our new software we have been working on for the last 2+ years.

    I just loaded 04B04+-+2.0+EROM+87+-+Shift+Build+19800 and took the 3 year old for a 40 mile drive to get her to nap. Not a huge difference over stock but noticeable in terms of how it accelerates in 5th and 6th gear without downshifting on the freeway (I-15 and 215 belt route in SLC). Gas Pedal feels less dead, and I like that.

    3/4 up shift is a little short, also had it bouncing between 3/4 and 3000/5000 rpm headed up I-80 towards Park City to see how it behaves on bigger hills. That was a little more annoying than stock but I was pulling 75-80 mph in the process. It was able to head up the hill in 4th and maintain speed better than stock. Just drove in “D” to see how it behaves on its own. Need to try “S” and ETC combos throughout this tank of 88 ethanol free. Then maybe try 91 tune for a tank.

    So far I’m happy, no issues setting up the software and flashing tunes, seemed pretty easy to me. Just follow the instructions.

    The old drive the kid around to get them to nap trick, I love it. My 5 yr old daughter falls asleep pretty quick in the car.
