This is our biggest and greatest calibration update for the 2GR-FKS platform. This update version, while initially delayed from December, has now been released for the Manual Transmission. (Auto transmission coming shortly after!) More than a year in the making, hundreds of lines of codes tested, more than 500 hours of in house code analysis has brought us the best calibration for the Manual Transmission Tacoma ever made.
Overview of changes made:
- Updated Fuel mapping via direct AFR target control
-Updated Ignition control logic for octane learning - enhancing the OEM Octane control
- Updated Camshaft tables 
- Updated Rev limit
- Torque Modeling patch for the Manual transmission 
- Elimination of Gear based Demand tables
and more..
 
 
- Updated Fuel mapping via direct AFR target control
We have modified our tunes fuel tuning, changing the air fuel targets and modifying the tables for direct AFR target control. This eliminates fuel tuning guess work.
-Updated Ignition control logic for octane learning - enhancing the OEM Octane control
We have modified our ignition tuning, this includes changes to the base ignition tables, high and lock knock tables, and modified how the ECU interprets knock data and reduces or advances ignition. This has created our "Octane Learning" feature, which allows you to run a tune with varying octane. The ECU will reduce ignition and make the necessary adjustments to keep the tune safe. Note, we have 2 versions, and octane version for regular gas, and octane version for premium fuel. No longer are the tunes "87, 91, and 93" instead, there are 2 versions, Octane Learn Regular. This covers octane ratings from 85 to 89 octane. and Octane Learn Premium. This covers octane ratings from 90 to 94 octane.
 
Note** you can technically run 87 or even lower on the premium file. However, you will get continual diminished performance. 
 
 
- Updated Camshaft tables 
We have updated our VVT tuning to incorporate some changes that Toyota has changed for 2020 model year vehicles that use this engine and produce higher horsepower and torque numbers than the Tacoma.
 
- Updated Rev limit
The rev limiter has been expanded on the manual transmission to 7250. Note, we do not recommend extended high revs (for example continually banging off the limiter).
- Torque Modeling patch for the Manual transmission 
One of the biggest changes we have made, and the one that you can feel right away, is the Torque modeling patch. We have changed the torque model for how the Manual Transmission version of this truck demands throttle position. This creates better response and more predictable engine response
- Elimination of Gear based Demand tables
We have found, through extensive testing and code analysis, how to eliminate the torque model changes when you change gears. This is exclusive to OVTune and took hundreds of hours and months of testing to figure out. This is by far THE BEST change that can be made to the tune to make this truck more drive-able. On the stock calibration, each gear has it's own Torque Model. This means the response from the engine is different, and unpredictable, in each gear. Driving a manual transmission REQUIRES that you know how the engine responds when you apply throttle. However, in the Tacoma, the throttle is applied differently for each gear and neutral.
This means you either need to remember how EACH GEAR drives, and independently change how you apply throttle in these gears to create a smooth driving experience, or flash our latest calibration, which eliminates all of this and creates a 1:1 predictable throttle output, regardless of gear.
 
Information related to this update, and how to update:
resetting LV
First. it is NOT required to "clear LV" when flashing this update. But we do recommend it if you have issues after flashing.
My throttle is jumpy, or jerky after flashing
There are initial throttle learning times and zones that must be met. This is NORMAL and will go away. after about 15 to 20 miles or driving, or 2-3 start cycles
I can hear pinging
You should flash the tune that closely matches what octane you have in the tank. If you have 85 octane and flash the premium version tune, there will be some pinging until octane learning has been performed.
How to update:
Available File Versions:
2.0 Regular Octane Learning
This is the base version 2.0, for regular fuel 85 to 89 octane
2.0 Premium Octane Learning
This is the premium version of the base tune 90 to 94 octane
2.0 Super FOB Regular Octane Learning
This is the PERFORMANCE version, Super FOB (Full Otto Base) version. Maximum performance, Maximum Response, for 85 to 89 octane
2.0 Super FOB Premium Octane Learning
This is the premium version Super FOB (Full Otto Base) version. Maximum performance, Maximum Response, for 90 to 94 octane
- Dump Tube versions of each
These versions are ONLY for our customers who have our catted or uncatted dump tubes.
BOTH version dump tubes use the same tune

I am working professionally in the field of aftermarket alternative fuel conversion of petrol engines. We have a great demand for the conversion of 2GR-FKS to propane. At the same moment it is far expensive to develop a solution for 12 injectors and I am looking for the solution , where we can DEACTIVATE indirect (MPI) fuel line, leaving direct injection only. This will leave me enough space for vapor phase and liquid phase lpg applications. Can you help me with the MPI injectors deactivation? These applications are not requested for the conformity to the emmissions . Thanks

I test drove 2020 taco v6 Ted sport access cab with manual transmission. I found that 2nd gear bogs down, which means I have to go faster in first gear and rev higher, before switching to 2nd. Seems to me that 2nd gear should allow slower speed, without bogging down. Does this mod fix this problem.

Are you guys not selling tuner kits? Would like to purchase one.

Can’t say thank you enough! This tune continues to make me love my Tacoma more and more. Worth ever penny and then some! Matt and the OVtune team are 1 in million, you really knocked it out of the park on this one.
