    What was the status of TC during your talking points? Your review is limited in operating range and sugarcoated.
    Locked TC in 6th at hight speed 80 + mph will not downshift easily. Have to slamp the pedal to the firewall
    Drove about 11k on all iterations in high terrain.

    Wasnt anything to say other than that, i talked to him about it and it is all fine and dandy. Its normal. Its something that caught my eye and its normal operation. Matt told me 10 degrees is no big deal since he has seen tundra TC go as crazy as over 300+ degrees. Long as the pan doesnt get hot youre fine. Limited by what? of course theres limits and sugar coated by what!?.........Well sorry we dont have 80mph here in Canada our fastest is 70 at most 75 if ur lucky without being caught.

    Like any other review out there in the world, it wont satisfy everyone, but it helps alot and shows alot for people. Some people may be nit picky and all that but still helps and gives at least my .2 cents on it.

    Just tuned my 2020 tonight. I have a little over 2,000 miles on the truck. I will be interested to see the difference in the drive.

    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).

    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.
