    There was a post somewhere. Not very detailed, but something about having version 3.0 software and not being able to use it to tune Subarus / Mitsubishis?

    There are no warnings that I have seen about using the grey Tactrix with OVT.

    Either way, the tuning kit is +/- $170 if you buy the kit with or without the Tactrix.

    I took TSB 0013-19 printed out and showed the dealer (second time trying to get the update). They ended up saying that they did see an update, but it was for the automatic. I referenced the 04A7100 update and they agreed to update it, but it would cost $100 because it wasn't covered under warranty. I had them do it, but the work order just says "REFLSH CAR PER CUSTOMER REQUEST". I really hope they applied the update.

    Driving home I don't notice much difference at all.

    Wow, cannot believe this is still a issue with dealers...starting to become a "can't get this sticker off" journey.

    Check with the Carista or OBD Fusion apps. You should be on 04A71.

    So, for the $100 you spent paying for the update, and the cost of the Carista plus subscription, you could have just gotten a Tactrix and did it yourself. Then... if you decide to go OVT, you would only have to buy the software/license.

    Probably some agreement to make the deal happen, get a pricing discount, and / or get the volume that he needed?

    I like the orange color. It's a nice touch.

    Well, I paid $100 for the "update" from Santa Cruz Toyota and just ran my ECM with Carista. I got the following codes that do not match with the TSB.
    Instrument cluster
    Cal. ID: 8380004L7000

    Am I missing something?

    EDIT: I realized my ignition was in the first position and not in the "ON". Re-ran Carista and it pulled up my engine calibration ID: 04A7100 !!

    So they did do the update. The last two days I've felt the power come on in second gear around 1800 RPM, which feels much better than stock.

    You're looking for this:
    Screenshot_20181220-061122~2.jpg

    Instead of 04B13, you're looking for 04A71. I believe the leading 89665 should be the same.

    Excellent. It is good to know that you have what you paid for.
