    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:
    2015-2016 Lexus RCF USDM
    2015-2016 Lexus GSF USDM
    2018-2020 Toyota Camry 3.5L
    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
    - Gives you the access to purchase programming kits which you can sell to your customers local or remotely.
    - Access to remote tuning tools
    - FULL Access to our map and table list. Additional tables, controls and functions not available otherwise.
    -Map list update is for ALL vehicles supported by vF Tuner.
    - Ability to create Unique Flash IDs, Specific to your tune or your business, which nobody else can access or modify.
    -Ability to lock your tunes from being read from the ECM
    - First access to development
    - First access to new features

    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...

    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.

    Redline custom leather shift and e-brake boot. VFTUNE Super Full Otto cycle, octane learning, premium fuel.
    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.

    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.
