    It is and can be under certain circumstances as long as you remember to row through the gears up and down. Like Art64 said just dont forget to downshift if passing someone or pulling a load up a hill. I find it especially useful for holding upper gears on long highway trips and the tight twisty and hilly back road over to the boat ramp myself. I too have driven a manual most of my life and still have them in my Cobra and Shelby and without the clutch and actual shift pattern it can be just awkward enough that I have had a brain fart mid hill while towing waiting for the truck to downshift and suddenly realizing/remembering I had to do it myself.

    @OVTune

    Fellow modified 18's this is a direct quote from the "Dealer Letter"

    "NOTE: If a vehicle has non-Toyota-approved modifications that have changed the ride height of the vehicle or the factory installed position of the millimeter wave radar sensor, the owner will be required to sign the “Non-Toyota-Approved Modification - Owner Acknowledgment Form” before the remedy is performed. The remedy for modified vehicles includes the following additional steps:

    • PCS will be set to “OFF”.
    • PCS will be configured to retain the last setting following a key cycle.
    • A notification label instructing the driver to use Constant Speed Control and not to use Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) will be applied to the dashboard.
    • An owner’s manual insert will be placed in the owner’s manual.

    Not all vehicles with non-Toyota-approved modifications will have the remedy performed.

    Examples of non Toyota-approved modifications the remedy WILL be performed:

    • Modifications that affect ride height, such as lift kits, and/or oversized wheels/tires.
    • Toyota original equipment grilles installed on trucks that were not originally intended for the trim level of the vehicle.

    Examples of non-Toyota approved modifications on which the remedy can NOT be performed:

    • Aftermarket grilles
    • Grille guards
    • Winches
    • Light bars
    • Aftermarket steel bumpers

    In these cases, if the owner restores the vehicle to its original design at his/her expense, the remedy will be performed."

    I guess I got lucky. I have an 18 with a 3" lift, the dealership, without question, recalibrated and updated the software for the PCS system after my bodyshop replaced my hood & grill surround when a big tree branch fell on it.

    Thanks for posting this, it definitely varies from dealership to dealership.

    I'm going in armed with this letter. We literally have only 1 Toyota dealership in Hawaii....... I'm up 6 inches and hope this works because I'll be screwed on my tune......

    Haven't found (honestly haven't looked in all 2440 posts) an answer to this....... with the tune and gear lock, etc, does the tranny still shift to 4th gear when moving along in 6th gear in D? I always hated that feature, driving along at 65-70 and having it go to 4th gear when you move the lever to "S".

    my 2008 sequoia and my 2018 Tacoma do this when shifting into S mode... just a Toyota thing i guess, but i typically just go straight to S mode right when i first get in. not sure if this is something Mat can change with the tune

    I've suggested a feature/option/functionality for the transmission to go to whatever current gear it's in when going from Drive to S-Mode, but that's as far as it went.

    On the surface it would seem rudimentary, but I've been wrong...a lot of times actually.:rolleyes:

    You might be wrong about that, but then again, I may be mistaken to begin with; or not. :pout:

    Yes, but keep in mind OVTune is a small semi-custom tune shop and they are working on and finishing for release other tunes besides ours. A bit of patience involved but it will reward you with the most comprehensive and best remote tune available for our trucks.

    I don't mean this in any sort of poopy or disrespectful way, but a bit of patience means settle in for the long haul. Probably months before the entire tune is completed. It's not necessarily a bad thing and completely worth it. This is the best and only real way to go.

    Yep. A lot of people don’t understand this takes time and there is still active development going on. Some of the Tacoma guys are real bad about it. I first tuned my Tacoma 11/2017 and it has gotten better with each update.

    it sounds like the tundra is less complex though and mat has learned a lot from deciphering the taco madness so once that’s wrapped up, I’m guessing the tundra will progress quite rapidly.

    Got my tune and tried to flash but get the dongle not installed error. The dongle is seen by the logger and shows installed in Device Manager.

    I uninstalled & reinstalled & rebooted the computer.

    What do I do now?

    I was able to do the flash, using a different USB cable.

    I'll do the logs on my way to work tomorrow & submit them.

    It wouldn't work with the cable that came with it? I thought that was supposed to be some kind of special cable...

    No sir. Not for the flash. I am in IT & have a stupid high end networking tool that came with a very high quality cable that worked.

    The weird thing is that it is fine for the logger.

    Drove to work with the 91 tune (highest octane gas we get). Felt good, sent logs which the cable the dongle came with was fine with.

    Mat may need to work on his logistics. Mine shipped 1/5. Finally arriving today. I'm excited to get started. Hurry up and wait.

    Looks like I get to partake in the fuel pump recall. Guess we'll see what they replace and if theres a new ECU calibration.

    Will you need to go back to stock before taking your truck in?
