    I can't imagine it wouldn't work to flash tunes.

    Big shout out to @tonered couldn’t have gotten this far without ya! Thank you sir!

    And sorry @OVTune for feeling frustrated about MY issues! Hopefully this will all work out with the different laptop and my new system ID. If it makes ya feel any better I’m really excited to install the dump tubes and flash this damn thing!

    I apologize if this question has been asked countless times before, but I didn't want to read all 400+ pages here or the development thread. What tune should I start with?

    I just got my stuff from OVTune and I bought the tune pack since it is on sale for Black Friday right now. I have a 2016 Tacoma Off-Road on 285/75/16s and am wanting to stay on 87 octane. Should I do base or performance? Which is better for mpgs for daily driving?

    I'm in the same boat minus the last part. What's the best for zoom zoom zoom? IDGAF about gas mileage :rofl: I'm guessing for now 33 THX tune that I got with the tune pack but also wondering if I should try others offered in here- I do need to do the AGM voltage upgrade too.

    Also whoever recommended the HP Stream 11" thank you, I actually like this little thing and I typically HATE windows. I like that it comes with Windows 10 Pro, I almost bit on a cheaper one that runs S mode but I think this is a pretty darn good deal. It's so portable and actually works pretty well/is faster than I thought it would be coming from a i9 core new macbook pro. Just waiting on my system ID registration and cable now!

    Here's the link I got the HP Stream from:

    The 2.0 tunes are base tunes. They are better than stock, but not performance tunes. If you want a performance tune for 04B04 (2016-2017), look in my signature or @Mooseditty17 ’s signature for download links. Mpgs will be the same or better than stock. Most get better.

    Thanks boss! Just cruised through the last 50 or so pages appreciate you and MD's help. Eventually will have to get yall some beer money. Cheers!

    @PapaRee any chance you have an agm edit to one of your tunes? I need to do it soon and probably can figure it out as I’m pretty tech savy and there’s good info out there already on it but figured I’d ask since I’m new to VfTune.

    Multiple reasons. Too much important stuff on my macbook pro and it is maxed out to the extreme on it’s build- I don’t even want to think about how much $$ that or my desktop was- as I’m an architect and need a high performance machine, not risking any windows bologna on that. Plus it’s a 16”, I wanted something I could have as a dedicated tuning computer that was more compact. I can lock this one up behind my rear backseat in its locking compartment easy and tune whenever. Also cause if I spill beer on it while working on the truck I mess up a $275 laptop as opposed to something that was serious money.

    @OVTune

    Which of the throttle positions on the vF logger corresponds to the x axis of the torque converter tables? Is there any fudge factor with this? Will there be TC state logging in the future?

    How long has it been taking? I sent my calibration id on Thursday and got the auto response . I sent my software registration on Tuesday afternoon and got it back Thursday morning. Instructions didn’t say what to put as subject id, hope that didn’t mess up/it didn’t end up in spam
