I am running the Torque Pro app and have noticed that is it is reporting that i am only getting 80% throttle even its flat on the floor. I have check to make sure its not getting hung on on the floor mat :D

In the old days id open in front of the throttle body and get someone to push the accelerator pedal down and make sure it opens fully, as this is flyby wire i cant :(

Anyone else running Torque pro? In not sure if its the app falsely reporting or i am not getting 100%

its the 2.0 petrol motor.

Well, anything that has "pro" in the name can't be wrong! Be wrong ... be wrong ... be wrong......

Following in the spirit of Dr.Dyno's comment, has the accuracy of the Torque Pro app been verified for use on your 4.2 RAV4?

This is actually an interesting question to think about how you would physically check? You'd have to remove the air intake hose/plenum to the throttle body to see the action of the throttle plate. But with the engine off the plate wouldn't move at all. With the engine running flooring the accelerator pedal would rev the engine to the limiter. Not recommended. So you'd have to drive the car and use a mirror or camera to see what's happening. But if the car has a MAF sensor you would've disconnected it with the plenum so the car wouldn't be driveable. :confused: Guess you'd have to decide how bad you really want to know.

80% is normal. A lot of modern EFI vehicles don't read 100% TPS when they are wide open. GM is similar.
This EE asks, "How do you come to that conclusion?"
And, if the TPS reading is inaccurate in the app, what else is? Can any of it be trusted or is it just for entertainment value?

The torque app "typically" reads the TPS pid. On drive by wire throttle bodies, The TPS reads the throttle blade and it's based on voltage. My understanding is most will read somewhere in the 80%. In GM's it's based on a 0-5v scale, but cannot read 0 or 100%, otherwise there would be a fault with the throttle body. Usually the operating range is between 15-85%. Typically to see a traditional 100% throttle, in GM's, you have to monitor a pedal position, or ETC pid to see it. It's been a while since I've actually read up on it. If you care to google, you'll see a ton of threads about 80% throttle on the torque app. For a few technical threads, I found a few. The torque app isn't inaccurate, the data just reads different than you would expect. 80% probably is WOT.

From the HP tuners forum, GM related, but explaining why 88% in GM is actually wide open.

Feel free to try to independently verify. I'm more of a GM guy and it's completely normal. Just sharing my experience.

Torque Pro App works for me. Reads and clears codes, gauges and tach all coincide with the app. I'm happy with it I've been using it on my 03 RAV4 2wd 2.0
