    Haha! Although she did try to “kill me” by taking half of my shit, even when I paid for everything and gave her money. Anyways, she got fuck all and I’m glad this mess got sorted out a while ago. :rolleyes:

    But i switched to a set of my tundra 265/70 16 goodyear adventure a/t tires last summer. Pretty sure they were heavier than the stock firestones. Truck just has noticeably more power that my buddies 2019 v6, plus the transmission and rest of drivetrain seem to work together more fluidly. Imo, its better than my tundra ever was, except for a more taunt ride.

    Clearly you don't get it. There is a hesitation with the way the tacoma comes due to the throttle pedal being connected via a "drive by wire" set up as opposed to the oldstyle gad pedal being connected via a throttle CABLE. Pushing the pedal down harder only puts more rpms out there by the time the throttle butterfly activates. As I said in my comment, WATCH the video. It is probably the best explanation of how the throttle assembly works, and what a throttle booster does.

    Then must be how you drive. I remember that time I had my Fj . My wife used it for a week when I had it back, it felt preppy . Wifey likes to mush on the pedal off the line .

    This isnt accomplished with a tune that also cleans up the throttle mapping and shift tables?

    Idk, i drive the tacoma like i drove my 2001 tundra. Believe it or not, the taco runs the same rpm at the same speeds going up hills on the roads here. Really no difference. Rode in my buddies 2019 trd awhile back, it seemed to be downshifting a couple times over the same hilly roads to maintain the same speeds. I'm still thinking there are performance differences between trucks that some run better than others.

    There you go, you just explained it yourself. 2020-21 drives better with than 2016-19 d/ t updated ecu’s as what some 2020+ owners here reported although it’s performance still doesn’t compare to tacos with kdmax6.0 premium tune.

    Definitely you won’t get better MPGs, maybe same or worse, depending how you drive.

    The Toyota Dealer clued me in on the iDrive. Does the same thing for the most part but in a clean and tiny form. I like the Auto mode the best. It does just give it the faster response when pulling out in to traffic Etc. https://idrive-usa.com/collections/toyota

    Not sure what you mean, but both my 2020 and buddies 2019 have had the latest ecu update from toyota, but they definitely have performance differences between them. I have no clue about your kdmax6.0 tune how that compares. The way everything works now is fine with me.

    Not sure. A am sure they all do about the same thing. I just know it works for me. Also has an ECO mode which works good when off road in the loose stuff to help keep me from digging in the sand by slowing down the throttle response a bit.
