    interested if the gains in HP and torque are worth it. on the 13's do you know what the gains would be on this tuner? Cost is also a major factor - could be a game changer weather or not many of us can afford one.

    Very interested if it can handle some bigger injectors say 1000cc+ for E85 applications. Also full timing control. I would be interested in the future for sure!!

    Most tuning is needed when boosting. You can get some gains if you run a leaner fuel map, wont beable to handle much more timing so gains will be very minimal. 15-30hp at most with cost of fuel mileage.

    THIS^ is one of my biggest complaints. I've made a habit of keeping mine in 4th unless on the highway.

    here is my question.... Why is this something that is being asked if there is interest in, when there is NOTHING else offered, and the tacomas were previously locked in, and impossible to do any tuning on? I'm a bit confused? there is nothing on the market, and hasn't really been anything on the market.. Pretty much every answer you ever get is "you cant tune em". and the only tune you could get was the TRD tune from a dealer for the supercharger, and it was a one time, non changeable tune.. Make my 2k engine/trans vibration in all gears go away! that's all I want.

    When you select D move shifter to left and it will stay in 4 without going into OD (5).

    I have to say that your comment is insulting, do you really think that I'm that stupid?

    Pretty much all new cars shift into OD way too early, the speed limit is 55, the light turns green, the guy in front of you speeds up to 45 and sits there, my tranny goes into OD, he speeds up, I speed up and have to downshift. There are many situation like this all around 35 to 50 mph where our auto trannys suck ass because it insists on dropping into OD the second you lift off the gas. Putting it in 4 is fine and I do that but sometimes forget and find myself driving 70 in 4th.

    In that case put your foot down.. The truck will drop out of OD and downshift on it's own.
