    Basics of how to install the tune:



    *** UPDATED 06/10/2018**
    I am very pleased to announce that our tune has met ALL of Toyotas OEM Federal Emissions compliance requirements
    NOX, KNOX, THC, CO2, CO, etc. We will have the data available soon.



    New contact email : support@ovtune.zendesk.com



    Currently the only kits available are software kits. You will need to purchase the required OBDII cable separately from www.tactrix.com
    No reflash adapters, just the openport 2.0

    Starting next week I will no longer be available on weekends until after July 10th.
    If you don't hear from me right away please don't start freaking out. It's also NOT necessary to send multiple emails and multiple replies to the same email. I will see your email.

    Will it be traceable by the dealer? For instance in the case of a warranty issue-- is there a way to revert and clear any trace of it being used?

    My body is ready. I'm quite interested to see what you found out, and although I know it is a long shot I hope some of that could pave the way for an OTS tune for the 2.7 2TR-FE.

    Well if they can add some mpg, fix shift points and throttle response, I'd be in. But if the can squeeze a few extra hp/tq that would be a plus.
