I did it about a week ago and I did notice a difference. The truck definitely feels better. It's not a rocket now like some are suggesting, but it is noticeable. The truck is doing a much better job of selecting and holding the appropriate gear. It also does a much better job of not holding the gear to long as well. It's still not what it could be, but the shift points in relation to needed torque are vastly improved. I would definitely recommend everyone go get the update as I feel this is a solid step in the right direction for Toyota.
Dang so it's not for everyone??Trying to get mine done now. They said my VIN isn't on the list so they can't do it. I asked them to politely just stop playing stupid and flash the fucking ECM. It'll either help or it won't. I had to suck their weed and offer some of my dick, but apparently they're now on the phone with corporate to see if they can do it...
Would you happen to know why the TSB called for T104, but when they flashed mine it was T103? Just curious, and totally agree with what you said.I flashed mine last week. I work for lexus so i had access to the software. The health check showed there was an available update for
my 17 ecm and ect. flashed and test drove. much smoother shifting. no early shifting on accel. to harsh shift from park to drive.
its a much more enjoyable truck now. If you are in the Austin, Tx area, hit me up.
Didn’t know that. I thought they were pretty reputable.They won't do it because Toyota Carlsbad sucks. Go somewhere else, for everything. That place is garbage when it comes to service.
Here is my programming report. I just looked at the bulletin, and it doesn’t have the newest calibration listed yet. When I went to program, it showed the 01300 and B0300 cals to be superseded to 01400 and B0400. CHECK T-SB-0058-18 for up to date calibration.Would you happen to know why the TSB called for T104, but when they flashed mine it was T103? Just curious, and totally agree with what you said.
I went to my local dealer yesterday, and they said the update was only covered under the 3 yr/36,000 warranty, and since I'm outside on the mileage, I would have to pay for the labor, around $65. They assured me most VIN's were eligible for the TSB, but they would have to hook mine up to the computer and make sure. They said since the TSB isn't a "manufacture defect", it wouldn't be covered under my 7 year warranty. I'm going to call around and see if I get the same answer elsewhere, but it all doesn't make sense to me.
