    Hello, we are over in the 3rd gen section of the forum and heard that there may be some people interested in tuning / remapping for their 4.0L / 2nd gen Tacoma?


    How many people would be interested in a Handheld Tuner ?
    like what we have for our lexus platform (just to show some of the functionality)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zHAnri0Jyg


    Tuning Options -
    Handheld tuners with our Dyno Developed OTS Maps:

    We can do all Tacomas with the 5130 ECU ( BLACK PLASTIC newer version 4.0L)
    we can also do the BLACK PLASTIC 2.7L as well
    (2010/11 +)
    we can also do the full metal casing, we will have to verify handheld support.

    The handheld can hold 5 different tunes + stock


    Handheld Development

    yes we can do the TRD ECU (I assume that one?)

    if there is enough interest on this platform I'll go through and compile an entire list of USDM ECUS and order all of them so I can extract all the code. These ECUs are almost identical to a platform we just did that for, the scion tC. So porting everything over would be really easy

    we can definitely do all of them by bench flashing, but for direct handheld support we know of at least those ECUs being supported.

    I would just need to get a metal casing (older) ECU and open it up and take a look then I'll know on those. But I'd say about 95% sure those can be done by handheld too.
    If not, we have an option that uses a cable + laptop

    Do you any torque maps and fuel maps on the 5130 ecu that we could see. What kind of gains are we talking here? <10%?

    So are these user tunable or do we have to go through you or a shop to modify the tune?
