    Gotcha, its doable but your probably going to have to take the pan down to drill a hole, weld in a bung and insert the sensor. Wiring should be straight forward. If you remove the shifter handle the top part of the console just pulls off and you could go through the tunnel at the rubber boot on the parking brake cable.

    I do run the torque app myself with an Android and I can receive calls with it displayed. Calls via bluetooth through the head display. I never have to touch the phone. My battery stays fully charged.

    I do recall reading in a post in the past month or three about someone on the forums who did exactly that "installed a dedicated guage". If I come across it I'll be sure to post a link.

    Nice! Can you also figure out how to read engine oil temperature or where is the best or easy place to install a sensor? I am told even odbii can't read the engine oil temperature.

    I'm using the OBD Fusion App (iphone). Phone stays charge on the cable using Carplay without any issues. Phone calls come through fine. Oil temp also available as well as torque converter locked (which I use as a secondary gauge behind the Gear indicator (green outer ring aluminates when locked). Truck is not all the way warmed up in the pic.

    Has anyone actually installed this on a 2020 Tundra? In the second picture in post #11 shows a gold colored bracket holding the two lines from the thermostat assembly, I don't see that bracket on my 2020.

    I know he has it installed on his 2020, not sure why yours wouldn't have the bracket.

    Look a few posts down starting on #15 and he talks about the bracket.

    Now I'm confused.o_O So should that gold clamp holding the inlet and outlet hose in place already be on the truck or is it something we need to add? Like I stated back then it isn't shown in the Toyota parts list for the thermostat install.

    It's attached to your trucks transmission.

    Is it only for holding these hoses on, not doing anything else? Strange Toyota would have left it with no cooler installed.

    It seems I may have misspoke, my truck does have a gold colored bracket but not connected to the any of the vehicles housings. It is attached to one of the metal lines that rundown and supply coolant to the warmer/puck, and is not touching any of the transmissions housings (sort of hanging in air) with the two ends that look to be attached in pic #11 about .75 inch away from the housing. It does appear however to be situated in the proper location for holding the two lines for a cooler. The approximate usable hose opening being 2.5 by 1.25 inches. What is the diameter of the cooler hoses in that location?

    My truck was built 2/20 so rather recent, Toyota may have just changed there methods.

    Well today is the ultimate test for the Tundra. Going camping for the next four days and have to travel around 300 miles. The outside temps are going to 32C so I'll see what the tranny temps reach pulling my 5.5K trailer without the air cooler. My parts are still in the mail.

    Here’s temps on my 2020 after 40 min run with no trailer at 85F/29.4C. Semi hilly terrain with A/C on. Just a reference on temps with no load. This is already too hot for my liking for transmission temps. Have a kit ordered.

    Correct, that is the bracket where you route the inlet and outlet hoses.

    Yes my truck had the gold bracket on the coolant lines it holds the inlet and outlet lines from the thermostat. On mine I installed the lines and bent the bracket on them tightly. It bends fairly easy.

    My truck's transmission fluid now runs 188 now in every day traffic that's including bumper to bumper traffic that we have here every day.

    The transmission kit makes a world of difference. Most of the time the coolant temperature is higher than the transmission temp now.
