    2020 White Tacoma TRD OR DCSB Tech-Premium 4x4 vF Tuned
    Order #7537
    Purchased: VFTune 2.0 pack/software $499.00, Tactrix OBD cable $180.60
    Bought: 11/08/20
    Received: 11/21/20
    Flashed: 11/21/20 (04B81_Reg_Stock.vft)
    Flashed: 11/28/20 (04B81_MD87_M+W3.1_Reg_Stock.vft)
    Tune details: AT v2.0 final vft/M+W 3.1 Reg Stock file
    Overall rating: 5 stars
    Total miles on v2.0 Reg Stock tune: 252
    Total miles on M+W 3.1 tune: 40
    Truck Details: Stock 265/70R16 Goodyear Wranglers. Stock Bilstein shocks, stock gears

    The vFTune by OVTune acquiring process from start to finish took almost three weeks with several back and forth correspondence. I knew it was going to take some time so patience is key and well worth the wait. Once the file was received I initially flashed my 2020 OR Tacoma to the v2.0 final. I noticed that throttle delay and gear hunting were no longer an issue. It was pleasant knowing I no longer had to rely on the ECT button after every startup. Thank you to Matt at OVTune for all the effort he has put into this program.

    Following the vF Tuner for the Tacoma 3.5L thread, thankfully to @Mooseditty17, he further refined the v2.0 final file to his version the M+W 3.1 which was based off his 2017 Tacoma. No versions of the M+W file existed for the 2020 Tacoma so I decided to inquire with Mooseditty17 about making a file version for the 2020s (ECU ID:04B81). He was very helpful in sending instructions for me to replicate the M+W 3.1 values onto my v2.0 reg stock file. Main differences is to make key changes based on your vehicle tire size, and gears you're running. After editing the file, I re-flashed my Tacoma with no issues and took it out for a 40 mile drive on 87 octane fuel. I do not have a review at this time regarding the mild version (pre-ECT) as I was too excited to see what wild mode (ECT engaged) had entailed. Based off of wild mode, throttle response was very receptive. Barely am I stepping on the accelerator and the truck is gunning it. I noticed reaching 60mph in a short duration of time exiting the bypass onto the interstate. Shifting is smooth. Bogging and hunting for gears are a thing of the past, the truck should have came this way from the factory! Premium file edit is next to update and can only wonder if theres a big difference in the two files. I know its too early to make a conclusion on the M+W file but I’m just that excited to share with y'all my initial results.

    So far no cons on either v2.0 or M+W3.1. M+W3.1 is a step up from v2.0 and I recommend any 2020 owners to give it a shot and see for themselves. Hands down should have been one of the first mods right off the dealership. Should there be any changes I’ll be sure to post updates.
