    I tuned to the beta 87 octane 2020 AT tune. I would say that there is additional power (can get to the red line if I get on it / 6 rmp). The pedal is not sensitive and my idle is smooth. There is good acceleration from 40 mph (don't feel the stall).

    little bit of here and a little bit of that...
    Would you say it’s worth it to tune?? Be honest.

    It does bogs down around 40 ish mph. Btw I have been doing some test with 87 and 93. 87 I get around 16mpg and when I pump that 93 I get 18-19. Back and home from work everyday. This is running no tune

    I am interested to OVTune thou

    I'm running the 2.0 91 Beta. I'm happy with it, really enjoy the gear locking, got to play with it off road a few weeks ago, truck was a blast to drive.

    With the release of 2.0 final for the M/T's I can now say I am 100%+ satisfied with my purchase of the tune. After many revisions and test tunes this is by far the best my truck has ever driven and performed. 2.0 blows the stock and all previous versions of the tune out of the water,it is in a completely different category of awesome and how this truck should have come from the factory.

    Agreed with @M1Awolf. The 1.5 release was a good improvement over stock but 2.0 blows it away.

    Getting rid of the truck has been the best thing I’ve ever done. I invested about 15 grand in the two years I wonder it, I got that back on the trade in. Highly recommend!!

    Would you recommend getting it regeared first or the OV Tunes?

    2.5" lift, 4.88 gears
    I re-geared to 4.88 around the same time as I got OVTune 1.04 and it was better than stock but with the truck lift, larger tires, heavy bumpers and sliders, all contributed to making it worse. OVTune and re-gearing alleviated the regressions and with 1.05 it got better, then with 2.0 beta it better again, but really the truck suffers horribly between 1k to 2.5k rpm and nothing except for boost will fix that.

    I would recommend you get the tune first then get the truck re-geared. If you are planning anything larger than 33" tire then go with 5.29 gears, 4.88 barely makes it with a 33" tire. Anything stock to 33" is good with 4.88 gears.

    I realize the OVTune flash kits are now called VF Tune instead. Their website leaves something to be desired (black text on a black background, hmmmm).

    No mention of support (within VF Tune) for a Tacoma?

    https://www.ovtuned.com/collections/vf/products/vf-tuner-software

    $199 for VF Tuner which supports:

    2020 Toyota Camry 3.5L TRD
    2018 Toyota Tundra 5.7L
    2018 Toyota Tundra 5.7L Flex Fuel

    $1250 for VF Tuner Pro which says its for Pro Shops only but does say it supports:
    vForest Tuning software for Toyota 1.5 and 2.0MB ECUs

    Flash. Calibrate. Tune.
    PRO TUNER UPGRADE
    Supportes Renesas vForest product line in Toyota Chassis

    Benefits of vF Tuner Pro Tuner Upgrade

    What product do I buy to flash my 2020 AT taco? :annoyed: Good grief.

    I am not sure what the questions are. LoL!

    Rafael is a good guy. vF should be fun and interesting once it is rolled out.

    Thanks for the info, gents! I'll just have to wait a bit longer for this mod. But the mod list is long and distinguished, so no big deal...
