We do have mod-file database's create in-use that eliminates the need to use a PC when initially installing the OFT, now. This removes the need to use a PC, unless you want to upload and use a new/different tune file vs. what will be auto-generated.

Thanks again!

I hope that Openflash gets back to responding because at some point I'll likely put DP's on and want an updated tune... I would hate to have to change tunes just to accommodate.
As a side note- if you get any tune, make sure you put fresh plugs (gapped .20-.22) and strong coils. my car went from fine "stock" to drivetrain malfunction/limp mode soon as I tried to make a WOT pass before I put fresh plugs/coils. my car has 49k miles. now it's super strong with no drivetrain issues... other than smoking my 305 Pilot Cup 2 tires every day :-) I'll be switching to R888R's very soon.
What kind of plugs did you put in and where did you get them? I'm having issues with the tune as well where if I'm more than 50% to WOT I'll just go straight to Drivetrain malfunction. It feels like the car is sucking in a lot of air and getting ready to dump and just take off but then limp mode kicks in.
Have to turn car off and back on but engine light stays on but no code shows up when I try to pull it.

Just recently flashed to OpenFlash myself, great experience so far. As soon as I flashed it and got the car to operating temp first pull 3rd gear only from 4k was fine. Second time it started to break up, and only tried one more time after that and it was breaking up. No codes or errors pulled. Next day got new Bosch coils and NGK 97506 gapped to .020 plugs put in and better than ever. Honestly surprised at the power difference. Couldn't be happier. FYI car had 21,000 miles on it at time of changing plugs, coils. Now have almost 22,000 after I did a rally recently and normal driving. Car has BMS intakes and turner exhaust on 93 octane.

@naiza3k wonder if your elevation has something to do with the tune. I am not aware on this platform, but other platforms I have been part of I have known that elevation has altered and hindered some tuners tunes to operate properly at elevation? just a thought.

Plan on doing a separate thread soon.

I just ordered the same plugs, do you think the coils are necessary?

You shouldn't need plugs or coils with OFT

Some people have had issues with the V2 and swapped plugs but its still not needed

For me it was just cheap insurance and while they were in there. I've never had someone change plugs and coils until this car. Due to breaking back last year and just nervousness of bricking the DME somehow knowing my luck, I let a shop take care of it.

Bought Bosch coils from rock auto, and would have the plugs but they were OOS. Went to twisted tuning for plugs.

Agreed, I was having the same issues but now the car is running great after I went with 2 step colder plugs.

It seems that they have disappeared again. I submitted a ticket for my OTS tunes 6 days ago and have not heard a word. It is interesting .... I had a connection problem with my computer and tablet initially and Anthony responded via email and walked me through the issue quickly. The last ticket for the tunes is assigned to Shiv and I have heard nothing.

I know that they are developing and testing but that isn't an excuse for poor end user service. I own a business ... If I took 6 days (and counting) to respond to a clients email inquiry I would quickly be out of business.

Come on guys you have to do better on after purchase support. I am the second owner of the tablet after purchasing it from a forum member. Maybe if you are not the original purchaser you get ignored or pushed to the back of the line?

Whatever the case I am still waiting for OpenFlash to impress me. At this point, if someone asked me for a positive recommendation I would not be able to give it.
