Dear fish-- The ECT on your Toyota 4Runner stands for Electonically Controlled Transmission. It changes the shift points on your transmission from the standard rpm. setting to a higher rpm. setting. You will get a sportier feel starting off and you might also feel a little more power when going up a hill. Remember, however, that the higher setting will decrease your gas mileage and increase wear on your engine and transmission. Good luck from Bovan.
