    My wife purchased an OVtune for me and it's due to arrive tomorrow (saturday). I'm on the fence with this; one as it's not cheap and secondly I have little to no computer understanding.
    That aside what is this "key" people are talking about? I've looked at the webpage and dont see anything about registration of this.

    I would recommend you start here. https://www.ovtuned.com/pages/tacoma-3-5-flash-kit-instructions

    Than when you have questions there are a lot of people that can help you on the official Ovtune thread.https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/2016-toyota-tacoma-ovtune-1-05-tune-development-thread.495735/

    You'll get some great help and some crappy help like people telling you to go back and read.

    Hopefully your install will go smooth and you'll enjoy your truck more.

    Mat, the owner of Ovtune can always be reached at his zendesk email.

    Good luck. I am also horrible at computers and I figured everything out but I did have to ask for help from people that are savvy.

    The key is a license file to match your laptop/truck.

    99% of OVT Customers will tell you, keep it, you'll be glad you did!

    I want to rescind my negative review. If the mods can delete all posts related to that review I would also appreciate that.

    I have been using the 91FOB tune for about a month now, and it was a greatly improved experience.

    I noticed a big difference immediately. Great product.

    I just turned in my rusted out 97 4runner of 15 years for a 2020 Tacoma DCSB TRD 4x4 AT. The 97 was a great rig! I knew what I was getting into(known problems; gear hunting and throttle response etc..) with the 3rd gen Tacomas but I just love the build quality. I've read most of the threads......lots of good info:)! I'm not looking to upgrade the tires or add other major upgrades. I am looking for opinions from other 2020 owners or those who have the latest Toyota updates the 2020's received VS the latest OV tune? I am new to Tacomaworld and apologize in advance if this has already been discussed. Thanks!

    @Red18Taco707 the handheld doesn't work on the 2018 yet. I have a HH that has been sitting on my workbench since Labor Day. The website is updated to say good for 16/17 3rd Gen but it didn't say that when I bought mine. The handheld vendor @Openflash has stopped responding to my requests for updates, although @OVTune has been apologetic and has offered to trade my handheld back.

    Anyway, for now the handheld isn't an option.

    Why do i wanna hook up an odb2? Im not guessing at anything dude my RPMS were at 1500!!! Ive shifted this truck more times than you can count through all gears and u can even see on the highway video later on that i did 6th but it backed out to 5th and 6th gear at 60mph is 1500. Try again and what exactly is the point of ur comment anyways?. Not sure what your point is youre trying to make?

    for now it isnt. They are still working the kinks. Seems to be a small blockade they are working on but not impossible yet.

    So you think that when i said 6th gear full throttle that meant i was doing 6th gear ? You simply are not understanding what i meant. I went FT in 6th gear and that was simply to show you the Throttle Response and the Downshifting for that. The fact you can get a smooth instant downshift and have no hiccups like stock form does. Stock has lots of delays when it comes to throttle input and ive had that many times at highway speeds.
