    @Shellshock i guess i am waiting for the tune pack, i requested, when i sent my ecu identification to zendesk (this morning). and again, i can see that even though we downloaded from the ov/vf site this morning from the link that says download to 1.2.7.8... i received 1.2.7.7 again. banging my head on the desk. i have 5 credits, i have never opened vf to tune anything because i was waiting for the 04b33 updates to my truck, then ov to have the base tune available, and the guy's having updated base tunes to flash. now that all that is in place, i am trying to get vf tuner running to flash to one of those options.

    Hi Ski. If you show 5 credits in your account, you can unlock 04B33 right now and poke around. Just navigate to the vftuner folder in the x86 program files folder. In that folder there will be vehicle models listed. Go to Tacoma and then 2019, and then select 04B33 and it will open. To flash member tunes, use the flash tool built into vf. It’s the little gear looking icon just under and to the right of the menu pull downs.

    I believe we got 1.2.7.8 but I think that the version was not updated so “About ...” still shows 1.2.7.7 @OVTune ?

    This is what I was trying to get at. I just seem to remember gearlock and a few others being optional which I thought was modifying a tune which meant the upgrade was needed but Mat has since clarified that. Some select options like that one will be available without the need to upgrade. I hope I finally understand.

    @OVTune mind if I send ski the link to the 04b33 tune pack so he can get started?

    ski, if you have gmail and view your emails using an app like Apple mail or outlook it’ll never show in spam or regular inbox with the link that’s attached. Gmail flags it for malicious content and the only way to view it is in web browser. Login to gmail using web browser and it’ll show up in response to the email to zendesk. It might be in junk mail and either way gmail won’t give you a notification that it’s even there as that’s how it did mine despite me never having an issue receiving email from ovtune.

    ok, i have paid my credits to unlock 04b33, and have that open. am i just waiting for the tune pack, that has the base & 2.0 file from ov tune for vf now? how do i go about choosing a "made tune" from @uploadadventure, @Mooseditty17, @PapaRee etc? looking for something like the 2.0 beta premium fuel, stock tires, (265-65/17), stock gears. would like a decent tip in, not too lazy, not too aggressive, with no 3500 vtech yo snap, that will hold gears in cruise, so i dont have that "gear hunting" motor reving feeling. i run premium non ethanol fuel only. dont mind compensating someone for a good tune. thanks guys, i am a lot further along, than i was this am.

    Be interested in trying one out on 04b33 one day. I’m running the generic one in the tune pack. 33 premium thx file. Haven’t driven it but maybe 20 miles so can’t form much if an opinion but so far definitely can’t tell much difference in this and stock tune. Wide open throttle from a stop definitely can’t tell any difference and both tunes shift at exactly 6k rpm. Only difference is I’m using premium high dollar fuel so also hoping for the final 2.0 performance version to test one day.

    I've been saying this since the day vF Tuner was released.



    But just to be clear too, any updates or tune releases *designed* for vF Tuner will only be available through vF Tuner

    big thanks to @PapaRee, for reaching out to me behind the scenes!!! he sent me a vf tune file, with updated cruiser stuff. was able to flash to the truck.

    not sure if i will delve into tuning my own, i prefer to leave that to people waaaay smarter than I am, to do this with development, and feedback. big thanks to @Shellshock, @tonered, @Mooseditty17, and all the others for all the help, support, on all these threads!!! i know sometimes this place, and this thread get a bad rep but, it showed today, we can come together to help one another.


    i am going to run this one for a bit, and see how it works. bestest birthday gift today!!! thanks again Papa! Ski

    I've downloaded vF Tuner several months ago but now unable due to chrome blocking the download. Looking for advice on how to proceed. Thanks in advance!

    Let me know how it feels and if it makes the truck a bit more aggressive/powerful feeling. I’m no tune editor either and honestly wouldn’t even know where to begin editing and what 99% of the tables relate to. I’d be just randomly punching in numbers hoping to see something change :)

    Use Microsoft edge. It allows you to bypass security easily vs jumping through Chrome hoops

    When chrome blocks the download, just hit show all and then tell it to resume
