    Same. Let’s be real most of these trucks are NA gassers. There’re not track cars. But, If it matters I’m sure the trans tune alone takes some time out of the dash to 60, passing etc. I bought for drivability, the trans tune and of course throttle limits in 4wd. @OVTune I think you've got the right idea with how you replied.

    I just got the ecu to support your truck, I am working on extracting the data from that ecu, I am going as fast as I can to get it done.

    Also for everyone, when we have to get an ECU open it, extract that data, etc it's not a 5 minute job. Getting past all the glue in the ECU is hurdle 1, then extracting the data, then getting the tables, then preparing our code.
    It's a cumbersome, but unfortunately required task in some cases like this.

    I SC'd mine along with some other mods simply to make a better towing platform. The reality is my slowest mustang...1999 SVT Cobra N/A full bolt on's making a little over 300whp out accelerates my 450ish whp SC'd truck simply because it weighs 1800+ pounds less. If all out performance is your primary goal there are much better platforms than these three ton trucks.

    My MPG remains the same, about 10-11 mpg on the hwy. I went from 87 with oem tune to 91 OVTune.

    Keep in mind The Truck weighs 8000lbs and I have 37s and 4:88 gears

    The base tune you sent me 2 weeks ago does not have gear lock in S mode. I have to press the tow/haul button to get gear lock to work. Is S mode gear lock something that you will be sending me in the future??

    Im sorry, Im a little confused. What is the difference between GearLocking and DirectShift???

    Yes, the throttle limits in 1st/2nd while in 4wd work great! and the shift patterns when hitting it hard off road work well too.

    Removing the throttle limits while in 4wd in reverse would be helpful also

    Okay to cover all the topics:
    S mode gear lock is still in progress for some ECUs
    s mode gear lock means, you move the lever to S mode, you can lock a gear out from downshifting.

    DirectShift is all new, nobody has it except me and one other person who got it today (probly a member here).
    DirectShift works by giving you unlimited gear control.
    I just finished the code for it last weekend, and it wasn't even going to be a feature but it's so nice on this truck it's absolutely one now.

    If you know how stock S mode works, you know that when you shift up or down, it won't always do it when you click it. It does it when it wants to.

    With DirectShift it does it right away, no limitations at all.
    It also shifts much faster than normal. You can full throttle row through the gears very, very quickly and without hesitation. When you shift, it shifts, every time.


    That being said, when you try to shift stupidly, like going into 6th at 20mph, it wont allow it.

    DirectShift does come with some cautions:
    1. Shifting crazy (up down up down up down just to see if it can) may harm the transmission
    2. If you hold the shift up, it will shift each gear at the lowest rpm it can, all the way to 6th
    3. If you hold the lever down it's going to throw you into the lowest gear for that speed, and it's abrupt.

    I will have a feature video that will go over everything.

    The DirectShift down control is probably the most awesome.
    Say you're in S6,
    Hold the lever down,
    Truck will put you into S3, or even S2,
    Continue to hold the lever and accelerate as hard as you want
    Let off the lever
    Truck will put you into one gear lower than your start (S5 in this case).

    Click the lever down equals go down one gear
    Hold the lever down, you can launch/ accel, then go back to the one gear down after.

    I requested to have Direct Shift added to my tune this past weekend thru zendesk.

    So for example, I'm drivng on the freeway on 6th gear. Then, I proceeded to exit. Do I downshift to the appropriate gear as the truck is slowing down to stop on the STOP sign or will it downshift itself all the way to 1st gear?

    Just wondering if this works like having a manual transmission.

    If you just decelerate from 6th and you don't do anything else, the truck will still downshift on it's own. it won't stall or be stuck in 6th. but it will do it's downshifts at very low rpm, around 1100-1200 rpm.

    I can't imagine a reason not to have it. The last email I send detailed out my request pretty well and I dont want to bog you down with emails. Can you just add that to mine, or do I need to request it formally? Thanks!

    @OVTune I sent in data logs for a tune revision a little over a week ago. The direct shift option has come out since then. I would really like to have this feature as well added to my tune revisions. order #5100.

    Ok, thanks for the explanation. Sounds like "s mode gear lock" and "direct shift" are pretty similar? Both will hold whatever gear you choose, correct? Sounds like direct shift just shifts faster. Or am I missing something?

    Will you be sending me another base tune with "s mode gear lock", or do I have to request it or something?

    OV thanks for your reply. Your tune appears to provide good things for sure. Is odd though that you claim more power, quicker shifts, etc yet no acceleration improvement. 0-60, 1/4 mile and passing speeds DO matter, just ask all the automobile manufacturers.

    Anyway...good luck to all of you going the tune route. IMO there's a lot of added risk for very little benefit so I'll pass for now.

    Good gravy... So more hp. More tq. Faster shifting. Have you looked at the Dyno sheet?

    One could only think if a of those have increased, a vehicle would move from 0 to 60 faster than before.

    Everything you asked about is improved as I and most everyone else implied. From a stop...More power and faster. From a roll...more power and faster. I haven't actually done a 1/4 mile run, but from 20mph to 100mph full throttle pull...guess what...More power and faster :) Did I do any of these with a stop watch...Nope...But I have enough time/miles on my rig to see and feel the difference. And make no mistake it is a noticeable difference. Driveability improvements alone would make this tune worth it to some I imagine.

    As far as risk vs reward goes everyone's opinion will be different. Ive been stock, TRD and BD tuned before going with OVTune and it is by far the best tune yet. Again my opinion, and you always have the ability to flash back to stock(included).

    Thanks for stopping by the thread, and I hope you find what you are looking for...

    a lot of added risk for very little benefit. Alright.
    We have our dyno results, on page 1. Same thing that any other tuning shop offers (dyno results).
    We have our additional custom features, that nobody else on the planet can provide, without them writing the code them self.
    Free updates, etc
    We've even shown our tune beats competitors tunes out there (page 1 again).
    and our option is cheaper than most others.


    The only thing that is real con in our option is adding new ECUs and writing the code for it can be slow. Also part of that is since we developed the features, we went from tuning about 10 trucks to over 100 in just a few weeks...


    Our features, support, and continued development speaks for itself.

    Im not claiming acceleration improvement only because I dont test it. Im sure its there if tested.,

    Hey All, has anyone switched from a Tacoma to a Tundra and transferred their OV Tune support? Is there a licensing fee or other to repay?
    I'm currently looking at switching from my 2017 Tacoma to a 2016 Tundra.

    Sounds like some great inroads with OVTune on the Tundra as well!

    I was wondering this as well. I was just on their website and under the FAQ's page it says each vehicle has to pay license fee.

    @OVTune How much is the fee? Do you guys have any plans to support or start work on 4Runners? Our Tundra and 4Runner are both 19's. Would be cool to get both tuned by you guys. Of course that is if its beneficial to have the 4Runner tuned. Haven't even started looking into that cause its the wife's ride.
