    Hey I figure since this thread is active and seems to be filled with knowledgeable people i was hoping to clear a few things up. I want to buy vf tuner and do my truck but I'm confused as to how to get maps? I see where ov tune isn't making maps anymore but third party people are? Is this correct? I see on their site I can buy the vf tuner software and cable and then I found tune pack I believe was 350...so I just buy these 2 things for ~760 and then I have access to tune files which I can upload on truck? I'm ready to pull the trigger but don't want to spend 800 bucks without knowing exactly what I'm buying. I don't have interest im making my own maps I just wanna take an existing map that is good and upload it to truck.

    Software + cable + tacoma tune pack = everything you need for tuning + pre made maps and you don't have to make your own.

    for now, yes.

    But if you want to tune other trucks with pre made tunes from us, you must *also* purchase tune packs for those ECUs.

    Other ECU's, if they are the same as yours, you are good.

    Update: alright, so I've got 04B33 up and running on the truck. What is the latest and greatest process for securing the B33 tune pack so that I can get back to my usual tunage? Is there a feature in vfTuner to download them directly, or do I have to do a few email exchanges with @OVTune to get up and running again?

    appreciate the heads-up on the TSB btw!
    :cheers:

    if you used your credits to open, use, tune, 04b31 in vf, you may have to use more credits to open, use, tune, 04b33. Ski

    I never even installed vfTuner. I received a Reg code for it, but never messed with it. My credits will hopefully still be there. He doesn't make people pay again if they update with a TSB, does he? That would be kinda screwed up IMO, so I hope that's not the case.

    That said, I can't even figure out where to download the damn vfTuner software....lol.. any hints on that would be much appreciated.

    @paleh0rse

    I waited to register, use vf tune, until after I updated, and settled 04b33 into the truck. I kept waiting for the finished 2.0 to come out, to just flash 04B31 with ov tune software. but, I became impatient from watching all the other cool kids with new ecu cals, and tunes... i had "tune envy" and FOMO REALLY BAD! :D

    the guys here have been very helpful, getting me up and running. sounds like you are in the same situation as I was. just go through the instructions get the updated most current vf software, after you identify, and unlock your 04b33 ecu (using 4 credits). request your 04b33 tune pack. then you can use one of Mats base tunes, augment your own, or request help with one of the superusers, for a tune specific to your needs.

    really glad i waited so i had 04b33 to start with. now i have the "tune bug" getting/requesting tunes, and testing them to see my likes and dislikes. @PapaRee was very helpful for me starting out. @uploadadventure, @Mooseditty17, @tonered, @Shellshock, are all superusers of this hardware software, and really help our community A LOT! my hat is off to all of them!

    Appreciate the link. I installed 1.2.7.8 and provided the master key. Looks like I still have the 5 credits given to me when I bought the software last year. I also sent an email to Zendesk asking for the B33 tune pack.

    In the meantime, I need to figure out how to unlock the B33. Reading instructions now.

    Thanks for the assistance!

    Good info @ktbell444 , thank you!

    I just unlocked B33 in the latest version of vfT, so I think I'll be good to go once I receive the B33 tune pack from Mat. Good stuff.

    Thanks again to everyone. As usual, y'all just made this easy as hell. :thumbsup:

    If I may piggyback on this @OVTune by asking if 04C30 has possibly made it through and I missed a memo? Before I send in (another?) ticket asking about it.

    Thanks and keep up the good work :thumbsup:
