    Based off of what I've read in the VF tuner thread, as long as you have a shared ECU ID you can tune as many Tacos as you want. If you don't have a shared ECU ID, its 75 dollars to register another ECU with the tuner software.

    Assuming that the VF Tuner tune pack works on multiple vehicles and isn't locked like the prior OVTune, is a regionally shared VF tuner feasible? I'd totally pay somebody a couple hundred bucks to tune my Taco without having to buy the whole package myself.

    I have OVtune and will be buying vF tune when 2.0 drops. I'd definitely consider providing this service.

    You cant "share" the software in that sense because it is registered to your computer. OVtune is about to increase security on the software as well to possibly make tuning be based on VIN and ECU id.

    That being said, I suppose you could technically share files with each other, but the vftuner software itself would need to be independently owned and ids unlocked unless one person is just going to use their computer to tune you all and you share cost incurred.
