  • VF Tuner Version 1.3.0 Upcoming Features - DTC - Upgrade ECU

    New features coming to VF Tuner
    1. Ability to control DTC functions for compeitition and development testing (active, deactivation)
    2. Ability to upgrade (or downgrade) ECU versions.

    This will be covered in depth soon via our 1.3.0 update info



    You will no longer require the use of Techstream to update a ECU or TCU.
    You can also upgrade older vehicles (like Tundra, 4Runner, etc)
    Downgrading ECU versions is also possible! (04B04 downgrade to 04B02, etc)


    Same for TCU.
    Some vehicles need the TCU updated at the same time, so that will be covered as well.

    That is really exciting.

    Is Automatic Credit Ordering part of Version 1.3.0 also?

      This is not exciting, because why would you want to revert to a more shitty ECU version? Lol

        you can upgrade or downgrade. I don't think many will downgrade, but the option exists.

          Some really cool options. I'm sure many won't downgrade, but the option to upgrade w/o techstream is awesome. Especially with the ECU recover option, could be a lot less stressful for some.

            Will we be required to provide the update files or will vF do it all? Would be nice to not have to wait for a T-SB and then for someone to download and release, especially if vF already supports the ECU.

              you can select any file from the provided files.

              for example say you connect to a truck that is "04B01"

              then select 04B04 from the stock files provided in the install folder

              then select upgrade > Select 04B01 >
              then flash.

              Then you'll need to select Tacoma TCU
              > select the 04B04 TCU file (in the installation folder)
              > Select upgrade > Select 04B01 TCU >
              and flash TCU.


              it will be covered with an instruction manual when released.

                      Example of DTC tab

                      checkmark means DTC = active
                      uncheck to disable for testing.

                        P2119 must be the key to throttle limits... 🤔 Is it?

                      Can't wait! Will this update give better open loop / closed loop control for the 78132 / Lexus 2.0T? In first to third gear, the car runs stoich past peak boost at present. 😂

                        There is a huge updating coming to the 2.0T,

                        new boost control maps
                        Map sensor scaling control
                        Target boost control
                        fixed AFR tables, corrected values
                        a ton of stuff.

                        Very very very much looking forward to it!!! I've been trying permutations for the existing closed loop oscillate / stoic disable tables to no avail almost every night for the past week or so, before ultimately giving up. I just can't change anything without safer fueling first, either by going open loop earlier or by modifying closed loop AFR. This is very welcome news.

                          Will the ECU reset be fixed? Not working on Tacoma ECUs in current version.

                          Also, what are the updates for the credit system?
