    Yeah, but this is what I don't like about the whole thing. How can this tune be safe and reliable on a truck that is running mods like the supergrip pulley and an exhaust and what ever else it had during the test, and be reliable and comparable with our stock supercharged set ups? The numbers gained on this application does not seem to represent accurately what people should expect.

    Impressive....
    I'm curious, how well did the fuel pump and injectors do..... Do u have, the AFR?

    I'm on phone so maybe I missed it.

    I know the fuel pump can be weak and start to taper off.

    Is this the first dyno on the thread by chance?
    Just wondering because the pages here add up fast and I may have missed this before if it got buried. Dyno numbers are always a happy bit of objective data.

    This truck also has the toyota reflash right?
    Typically the reflash is pig rich... Obviously with safety instead of peak performance in mind, and makes sense on Toyotas side.

    Now u have me interested..... All I seen before were hopes, dreams, and complaints with a couple of promising updates. I may have jumped the gun on my opinion of this thread/device. I'm more than happy to be wrong here tho...... We do need more Tacoma support especially in the forced induction area.

    We have plenty of bolt ons to augment the blower, but tuning is limited unless I'm mistaken.

    I dont want the ucon for example.... I'd run the x1 tho..... Just can't find one.


    Looks like this bully may come thru on performance side.... Just not the programming of windows/chimes/warnings/ etc.

    With 6+ grand into the performance sector, I could care less about chimes and that crap.

    can you explain the increased factory redline? It should cut off at 5500. and thats the most power from a 'stock' trd blown truck.

    This. Look at those curves, they are almost cookie cutter exact if you were just to move the stock line up...

    I agree. Look at the torque band. It shouldn't be that wavy. It should have smooth arches, not that rise and dips between them.

    I havent seen them on the board or this thread for quite sometime. I would really like to hear what they have to say about this dyno graph. It seems alittle suspicious comparing just the graphs overall not the numbers to the graphs on my dyno sheet of my S/C'd tacoma. :playball:

    Can't really compare numbers from a mustang dyno. Not the most accurate or precise dyno in the world.

    I'm not comparing numbers I already stated that. Im comparing how odd there graphs are and the fact and they somehow when above the stock rev limit. There isnt a dyno out thats 100% accurate so whats your point.

    This thread died quick. So for those with the BD tuners, do you still notice anything? I have spend time in the truck that BD used for writing the tunes. Truck ripped right after tuning it. But about 3 weeks later it felt like it was back to stock........re-tune it and it comes back, then goes back to feeling stock. Anyone else notice this? It is not my truck, but a good friend of mine. BD asked if they could use my truck to write the tune for 05-08 s/c taco but after the issues with the s/c tundra (which I have put many miles on also and is for sale now and is absolutely insane with no tune) I will not be letting them touch my truck for research. But now that they sold the company, who knows what will happen to BD and the Toyota products anyway.

    I need a tuner or someone who can tune to get rid of the downhill engine braking that is programmed into the ecm.

    Yea no shit. I'd pay $500 for a tuner just to change and firm up the shift points!

    I haven't found anyone here to tune it, yet. I may call the guy who tuned my Impala. Although he only tunes GM vehicles, he may know someone who does Toyota's.
