Is it required to unplug DSU?If so what is difference between stock ACC.

DSU is not required to be unplugged at all for OP to work. Following i will describe the Pros and Cons for both:

DSU plugged in using stock for ACC:

  • You are able to control the distance for follwing car although there are alternative ways to do it but this is stock
  • Toyota pedal is aggressive which can be optimized so yes you can have DSU plugged in and still have Toyota Pedal working.

DSU unplugged:

  • Car drives slowly due to safe distance kind of like professional drivers.
  • Works with Toyota pedal smoothly.
  • Can slow down at curves will be helpful when HD maps are released.
  • You will get best overall OP experince but do note it will be slow drives if you want to drive fast then you are better of with stock for ACC.
  • You will get cruise faut error where you are forced to by comma power or else it will get annoying
