    You will need 3 things:
    1. a vf tuner license here:
    https://www.ovtuned.com/collections/vf/products/vf-tuner-software
    2. Optional, tune package add on (this is the tune package for the Tacoma)
    https://www.ovtuned.com/collections/vf/products/tacoma-3-5l-vf-tune-pack
    3. and a J2534 cable, like a Tactrix openport 2.0.

    I went ahead and ordered all of this today. It seems like the way to go. I already just run premium to prevent detonation. ( I know it has less energy per gram of fuel) I am looking forward to getting it set up. I am considering a thread to describe the process in my experience, so maybe it will help someone else.

    Please share the thread if you in fact start one. I would be interested in following along with your experiences.

    So we have to pay another $400 if we already purchased OV Tune? Or am I mistaken?

    I payed the $79 but didn't get Tune pack. It's likely something I'm doing wrong. I'll delete everything from my laptop and start over with the downloads I was sent.

    To be clear, not the vftuner. I have the OV tune kit from another member that sold it to me after he deleted it from his truck

    First go to the website and download the software (flash manager), then you can send in a registration request and identify your ECU. There are instructions on the Ovtune website.

    I did the same a few years ago. Cost $325 for registration and took a couple days to get. After that, you’re good to go. Just follow the instructions.

    No problem man. We all have to learn.

    Download tactrix drivers. Download vf tune from the link, update if you can, start ov tune, follow instructions in link to get ECU id. If you have Techstream you can also use it to get ECU Id, and update it to the newest if you like. You only get 1 ecu ID per 75 dollar credits. Then submit ECU id to VF tune, they will send a link with your tunes. I hope this helps.
