*** Note - All other versions of flash manager are OBSOLETE. This version of flash manager is our new, Permanent version. 

 

NOTE: FOR ECU VERSIONS (AUTOMATIC)  04B02 and 04B03 PERFORMANCE AND GEARLOCK FILES ARE STILL PENDING UPLOAD. They will not be downloadable quite yet! We are working on getting them up asap.

2018 Automatic with ECU 04A60, 04A61 All files have been released!

Changes made:

- Flash Manager now allows you to access all software directly from it.

- Access Flash Tools from Flash Manager

- Download tune files directly from flash manager, no more emails

- Download updates directly from Flash Manager

- Multiple tune options are now available.

 

Tune Changes: 

1. Revised Base (mpg)
2. Performance ( 87, 91, 93)

The revisions to our base mpg file (which is the file that has been released) changes: idle target speed, ignition timing, valve timing slightly, and a few other controls to mitigate issues on some trucks that have misfires during cold start. Along with fixing unstable idle on some ECUs.

Regarding performance version:
There will be 3 versions (based on octane).
87 Octane Performance version does not add power except for higher RPM.

Changes made to the performance version:
- Revised Shift scheduling and Revised downshift controls for D mode.
- 6800 RPM rev / Shift limiter in 1rst and 2nd gear. - Datalog below shows that 2nd gear @ 6800 RPM = 70mph.
- Ignition timing curve has been completely recalibrated for performance.

Options that are available today from our Flash Manager:

Base - This is the base tune for both AT and MT. Designed for better response and better MPG.

Performance - Automatic Transmission only Performance Oriented tune with enhanced response, 6800 RPM rev limiter, and changes to throttle control.

GearLock - Automatic Transmission only Performance tune with ECT Gear Locking

FOB- Manual Transmission Only Tune with modified cylinder filling control to greatly enhance low rpm driving and response, while maintaining better response and torque from low RPM to high RPM.

 

 How To use Gear Lock:

 

 GEAR LOCKING FEATURE:

NOTE- WHEN ECT IS ACTIVE THE TRUCK WILL NOT DOWNSHIFT WITHOUT MANUAL INTERVENTION (S MODE SHIFTER).

IF YOU PRESS ECT IN D MODE, THE TRUCK WILL UPSHIFT BUT WILL NOT DOWNSHIFT UNLESS THE RPM IS VERY LOW (1200 RPM). SO IT IS POSSIBLE TO DRIVE IN ECT + D MODE, BUT NOT ADVISABLE AROUND TOWN.

To use Gear Locking, you place the truck in S mode, and then enable the ECT button. This will lock whichever gear you select with the Shift Selector, similar to a manual transmission. (The truck will still downshift for safety reasons below 1200 RPM).

You can upshift or downshift the truck manually at any RPM. At high RPM Upshifting the truck requires removing your foot from the accelerator pedal. You can downshift while maintaining your foot on the accelerator pedal though.

you should ALWAYS try to shift BEFORE the rev limiter (6800) or you will hit fuel cut.

 

Our New Flash Manager Instructions are broken into 3 parts, but overall the process is simpler and faster than before.

NOTE > YOU DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER YOUR SYSTEM ID AGAIN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE  (on the same computer) You can skip the steps regarding registration if you are a current customer and have already registered.

  • Amazing, Simply amazing! It’s like a totally different truck. If you were only doing one mod to your truck hands down this is the one to do.

  • Just checking to get info on the hand held tuners. My purchase is in since 2018 are they on back order or being built?

  • Just installed OVTUNE & WOW this brought life to the Tacoma with smooth driving, power delivery though all the gears. Very happy with the results. Will be recommending to others.

  • Just word of advice from where i had ordered the tuning package a few weeks ago and was in the middle of this switchover. It says at the top all before flash manager versions are obsolete but also delete the former toyflash and other old software. I was excited to get the tune on my truck and did not pay attention to the version types and was accidentally trying to use the old toyflash as i assumed it was the same. I keep seeing instructions on here for downloading the toyflash via the link online and does not work. Only opening it through the manager is what ive found.
