The dyno graphs on the site are for the "all fuel" map only. They don't have one for the hotter "98 RON" map which I have loaded, but I can tell you, it's savage. More torque throughout the range, and more power.
The 4k RPM performance jump on the DVVTI is less marked because there's more torque lower down, so a smoother transition, and easier climb into the real power. Now before anyone says thats just because the new trans map makes it seem like that, I can unequivocally call BS, because I have a manual transmission.
On soft sand, I can often get away without deflating, AND run in a higher gear than I could previously. Obviously soft sand & 32 PSI aren't great bedfellows, but there's no way the FJ could do that pre-map in 1st gear, let alone in 2nd gear. When I deflate, it's like I'm cheating, especially when I start locking diffs.
I'm really keen on this. Are your running a modified intake?

Tim said it would be a beast if I also do my intake system. He hasn't gotten back to me yet but he knows I don't want the all tune. The lowest I ever run is USA 91 Octane. I can get USA 100 Octane from UNOCAL which is about 5 blocks from work. I used to put it in my supercharged Nissan Xterras and they loved it.

Americas tire will let me test fit some 305/70R16s after I tune. I'm going to be running Pismo dunes. I understand how sand can load you down. Gears may be next but if I do that the tires will also get bigger.

Ah yes, the yuppie tax. I have not experienced that stage yet. If I am lucky and healthy I will.

Stock intake because I need all the filtration I can get. A snorkel would help that so it's not pulling so much dust through the fender, and the incoming air would be cooler. The fender intake is about 20c over ambient temp.
Yeah I think 98RON is about 93 in the US, but that tune can't run lower grade fuel, so you'll be stuck with 93 or 100. I have also got the all fuel tune on the PG so I can switch to that if I can't get premium fuel out in the sticks.
