    The only way it would void the warranty is if they can prove that the tune caused the issue if your axel comes flying off on the freeway because of a manufacturer defect they will have to honor the warranty tune or not

    I think he is more concerned of any engine issues that may develop being blamed on the tune and not defects.

    Ultimately they won't really know you have a tune unless they specifically search within the ECU parameters for changes to values compared to stock. Worst case scenario, just flash back to stock before bringing it in for warranty work.

    I'm trying to find documentation on what the different names of each tune are in 2.0, for example SuperFOB, BaseDump etc...? Also, I was wondering how I confirm I have the most updated tune files version?

    Thanks,
    Corbin

    Okay, can you PM me what dealerships?? I'd love to talk to them about how they handle the logistics. I work at one and have a very tenuous "I won't pitch to our customers but if they find me on their own that's cool" kinda deal. Have tuned many employee vehicles as well, but I don't blame the dealership for not wanting to promote tuning to customers.

    Can I use the Tactrix cable I got from OVT to update my ECU with techstream? Or is there some other hardware I would need for that?

    Just leased 2021 Tacoma Limited. Would it be smart to tune a leased truck? Any info on nearest place for OVTune? I'm central Illinois. I'm not liking the downshift on interstate driving 72mph. Thanks

    I appreciate the responses, thank you. Now I need to find somebody local (Hood River, White Salmon) to help me with it.
    Anybody near me with ideas?

    04B81 has been available as a Tune Pack since the start. TSB-0092-20 last year just made it possible for 04B80 folks to update as 04B81 came from the factory for later production 2020 ATs.

    @OVTune is the new update going to have the ability to fix the CEL if you have dump tubes?
