    Can you ID ( using FM ) your ECU // & clear DTC ?

    ..... ahhh ..... or are you saying it's OK now ?

    Hmmm

    Just got my taco a few weeks back.
    This topic is very interesting to me, I always used a Cobb accessport on my STI and I’ve been researching a good tune for the Tacoma since the sluggishness is real. I love the truck but the driving experience on road could be better.

    comparing Cobb on a turbo STI to this will lead to disappointment

    while there is some improvement in torque (especially down low), it's not easy to make real power on a NA engine with ECU tuning

    IMO, the real benefit of OVTUNED is in fixing the screwed up OEM shift logic (if you have an automatic)

    Still well worth the price of admission though. The drivability is much better, but just know you won't be winning drag races.

    Oh I’m not comparing, my expectations are fully grounded.

    im looking for a hardware/software parallels as far as improving the driving characteristics of the truck. I’m fully aware it will not perform alike and they don’t have to as they are completely different vehicles.

    I would like a bit more response from the taco coupled with more efficient shifting.

    then you're on the right track

    curious, what year truck do you have?

    speaking as a 2016 owner, it made a night and day difference.

    Doesnt hurt to have your dealer (or do it yourself) update to the latest OEM ECU updates and see how it drives first.

    I have a 2019 TRD OR.

    Im still largely confused on what a TSB is , from what I read it appears to be some kind of software build identifier particular to each truck ?

    Interesting if that’s the case.

    im not really after power, just a good balance and really the increased MPG gets me more excited.

    TSB = technical service bulletin.

    arm yourself with knowledge on the topic first before calling your dealer.
    people have had variable success having their ECU updated by the dealer depending on how they approached it

    my dealer had no issue updating and didn't need convincing, they just did it, but YMMV

    alternatively, look up how to do it yourself. lots of good resources on TW

    Really ?

    so these are essentially a list of known or emerging issues and the dealer may be reluctant to update the ECU depending on the issue may or may not be having ?

    how can you tell if the ecu was updated, is it a time consuming affair that’s why dealers are reluctant to update ?

    definitely not very assuring on Toyota’s part.

    The TSBs are listed for specific issues an owner might be experiencing

    TSB does not = recall

    Some dealers are reluctant to perform TSB if the owner is not experiencing the conditions outlined by the TSB

    Its not a Toyota thing - it's a specific dealer thing. Dont ask me why, have no idea. My dealer had no problem, no questions asked.

    edit - found a relevant thread for you (i think), and attached the TSB
    TSB-0092-20 is awesome! | Tacoma World

    You're always going to want to apply the latest ECU update before OVTUNED anyway.

    You are the in the exact same boat I was. Your words are spot on consistent to how I felt about my 2019 and why I began researching ovtune. The tune has never, and will never make my truck a powerhouse. However, despite the growing pains I experienced after purchasing the tune like minor glitches in the coding/programming that just didn’t settle well with the truck, I can say now that 2.0 final is spot on exactly what you’re looking for. The shift logic is drastically improved and the expected throttle response that should come factory was enhanced via ovtune.

    If you’re not an ovtune owner, I highly suggest, as a fellow 2019 owner, update to 04b33. You don’t have to buy anything to do this as you can find someone who has the cable and a laptop and see if they’ll do it or have a dealer do it. It’ll take an individual less than 10 minutes total time to do it and most would do it for a very small fee. After updating if your overall expectations aren’t met, then spend money getting the truck tuned. You’ll find that your truck drives to your expectations sooooooo much more.
