    2010 stock tundra custom tuned with my software
    Hey everyone I'm new to the forum world, I wanted to get everyone's opinion on the need for tuning solutions for Toyota. My team and I have developed some great software and I was curious to see if there would be any interest in the truck world.

    For the initial launch our software will allow you to edit airflow, throttle, torque, timing, VVT, DTC's and Transmission Shift points. You will be able to flash your stock ECU with a J2534 compatible device. We will be selling a tested device along with the software. If you have an appoved J2534 device, you will only have to purchase the software. Stay tuned for dyno results later this week.

    Welcome! People are always looking for tuning options for the 1GR-FE 4.0 found in the 05-15 Tacoma. There are other players in the market place, UCON is by far the most popular but pricey. Bullydog is another that many are not happy with. Both these tend to be for boosted applications but they don’t have to be.

    Would help to know more details on what you offer.

    nice. you'll get activity on this thread for sure.

    are you aware of the Orange Virus offering? if so, is there any simple (or complex) comparison you can make?

    do you have any MT offering?

    do you have a test mule of some kind?

    looking forward..

    If you can program shift points on a 2016+ 3rd gen Tacoma auto, you can make some money.

    I’m curious to see what you have. Can the flash be undone?

    We have not done the newest generation computer yet. That will be our next task. We will be looking for some initial test subjects. :) We will announce that here.

    You will be able to flash back to stock and make multiple changes as long as you have a credit for the vehicle.

    Is this gaining any traction? Any idea of price point? Are you offering custom premade tunes that can be altered remotely with data logging or would a Dyno be required for fine tuning myself?

    You may want to make a post in the performance & tuning section of the forum. There are a lot of people with superchargers on the 1GR-FE 4.0 that would most likely be interested, and people who are doing their own turbo kits. A lot of people get the supercharger and want to do more with adding additional power mods.

    Currently the only other competitor is OVTune who modifys the tune on the stock ecu. Ucon is a piggy back so it’s a little different. More competition in the game can’t hurt!

    I do like my coders to be accurate in all things. :D

    How about sharing history on other things you've had success with already, rather than just tossing out vaporware to get folks hopes up?

    That would be encouraging and draw more interest in seeing product hit the street.

    And don't forget those 2.7s. :cool:

    If it’s who I think it is, it’s a general mechanic shop in Houston who “attempts” to do performance called Two Brothers Automotive but I may or may not be right...
