Waiting on revision 3 right now. The base tune was an improvement but the second one made things really noticeable and didn't affect mileage at all. Though it's not going to win any races or be used as such it has made this little car even more fun to drive!

@Suaz24 any updates? I am considering purchasing this but maybe it'll be wise until Matt can tune the cams and get it "on the dyno," both of which I don't fully understand (someone mind explaining)?

Would I get upgrades as they come out if I buy now? Or will should I wait until completion?

I don't have dyno figures or anything but I would estimate, only estimate, about 15% increase. I have noticed that my gas mileage does go down when I romp on it, this little car is fun! When I am gentle on the throttle I can consistently break 45 MPG on the readout. It has been fun and I have learned quite a bit. The personalized tuning and learning can be factored in to the price which has made it worth it in my opinion along with he increased power and drivability. I haven't purchased anything fancy regarding air intakes or exhaust either.

Anyone that's gotten this tune, any updates? Has any issues come up that you think might relate to the tune? I plan on getting a Cold Air Intake first, then a tune a little bit after. I want to know if it helps with the throttle response. Sometimes it takes a half second or more after I've pressed down on the gas pedal before the car starts accelerating, lol.

Hello! I just purchased a 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan (which, as you know is a rebadged Scion iA). I really love the fit and finish of the car, and how cozy it feels in the cabin due to its small size.However, I would love for it to have a bit more pep, not even a peak horsepower increase, but just a bit more responsiveness with the throttle pedal. Did anyone find that the OVT tune helped a bit with the throttle lag? Did it help with the torque in the lower RPMs?

And, as odd as it sounds, did it help create more response when you let OFF the gas pedal? I SO miss cars that REALLY respond when you let off the gas. This car seems to practically coast when i let off the gas and it reminds me of driving an automatic (mine is a manual) and it feels less safe and i have less control over the car like this. So, did the tune address that issue? Did it have a more immediate "engine braking" feel when you let off the gas? Sorry to overwhelm everyone with questions. I'm just really excited about my new car and excited that there is a tune for it (I DID confirm that it's still offered). Thanks for your response!
