Yesterday we completed our first Orange Virus tuning package for the 3rd Gen(2016+) Toyota Tacoma! This recent install has fielded a lot of questions so I thought I should write this blog to help with all those great questions. Below is a link to the Orange Virus website for most up to date information, these guys are always updating and improving!
Our first vehicle was a 2018 Toyota Tacoma DCLB TRD Sport with Automatic transmission. Previously we installed a lift kit and 33" tires and it made the truck feel a little doggish. On this visit we installed the OV tuning package and a set of Nitro Gears(4.88's). I know the gears helped with the rejuvenation of the trucks driving experience but I do want to say I have a big smile on my face from this test drive!
We hear a lot of dissatisfaction with power delivery and shifting points of the transmission. In fact we commonly hear, I LOVE this truck except the way it shifts and wish it had a bit more power. Thank you to OV tuning I just finished a very enjoyable test drive and feel they have done a great job!
Our current price for the software installed on your 3rd gen tacoma with auto or manual transmission is $800 plus gst. If you would like to have installed on your truck we suggest stopping by for a 5 minute visit where we scan your stock file. After sending this file to OV and having it returned to us we would then get you back for another visit in a couple days so we can install the new tune built for your specific truck. The tuning takes 24-48 hours to be done by OV.
If you want to purchase the hardware and software to install yourself the price is $1100 plus gst. Allow 2-3 weeks to special order from the USA for the version with hardware.
