    I recently bought a 95.5 Tacoma from a Toyota dealer
    It has a "Jet V-Force Plus Performance Module" Model 67030 that's hooked up to every freaking sensor on the truck
    (Didn't know this till after I bought it)
    http://www.amazon.com/67030-V-Force-Plus-Performance-Module/dp/B001M41516

    I want this thing off of my truck...
    I unplugged it, started the truck, and it instantly stalls out
    So... it's plugged back in
    Anyone know how to uninstall this thing?

    It doesn't really do anything (no increased performance, etc), so what's the big rush to get it off your truck? Personally, I'd just leave it alone and use it to monitor the engine and similar - about all it's really good for.

    Anyway, as far as getting it off, you need to download the users guide & optional wiring chart, and then employ those to reverse the steps used to install it. If that's above your skill level, have the dealer you purchased the truck from uninstall it. He might even cut you a deal if you let him keep it to play with.

    The lcd screen is busted; so, it doesn't really do anything: including monitoring my engine and similiar
    It claims to increase "ingition advance" and such; whether or not it actually does, I'm sure can be argued;
    However, the point is... it's claiming to alter the performance of my truck... and I don't want it to

    Thanks for the links

    All performance modules is put the engine into cold idle which on most engines means richer fuel and minor timing advance . It can sometimes hurt performance on a torque tune engine (lean tune) which is almost every factory tune

    alright; so, yesterday the fuse that runs this thing blew and it rendered my truck absolutely useless
    it was as easy as replacing the fuse to get the truck running again
    but, if this performance module ever decides to quit; then my truck is quitting with it

    i took a look at the installation and wiring pdf; and it doesn't say that anything is hooked up to the ECU - so, i would assume that just unplugging the thing wouldn't effect the truck any differently than unplugging a ScanGauge
    unfortunately the truck doesn't agree
    and unfortunately i have no business messing with a vehicles electrical system

    ANYONE KNOW HOW TO KILL THIS THING?!

    bought it about 6 months ago
    95.5 with 200k on it
    there's no sort of warranty
    they'd probably charge me literally 1-2k to touch anything electrical

    Figured it out
    It is just a matter of reverse installation (don't need to reprogram the Comp or anything like that)
    There was something I missed in the installation instructions; and I'm not exactly 12V electrically inclined

    They have you cut a wire from your MAF
    You then connect one end of that wire to a wire on the Performance Module - and the other end to a different wire on the Performance Module

    So, when you disconnect the Performance Module - you disconnect that wire on the MAF, and your truck gets super upset about it

    When you make any wiring changes, don't forget to disconnect the negative battery terminal while doing them so that when you're done and reconnect it, the ECU will relearn the new operating parameters.

    You can tell the ECU has rebooted fresh and is relearning because the truck will begin by operating in a default mode of which the most noticeable symptom is a low pulsing idle as if the timing is retarded. After a few cold start cycles, it will return to normal. I had a 1996 for 17 years. They're really good trucks. :)
