Ya that would definitely be the route I would take. And I get discounts on all toyota stuff =) Sometimes I love working for a dealership! Employee discounts like crazy!

I had a Superchips for my V-8 Dodge Dakota. Yes, I could really tell a difference when I ran it on performance mode. Wish they would make one for our Tacomas.

If u can toggle the signal to the urd maf calibrator, u would have the same thing I think.

Supposed to be good for up to 15hp roughly.

I wanted to do that so I could turn it off when climing this/that grade, especially when its hot out.

After you spend your money and drive it for a few weeks the thrill will ware off. Gas engines are at about at their max a chip will help the excess weight in your hip pocket nothing more.

the added benefit of leaning the mixture some decreases the bogging effect that these things seem to run into (automatics)...when at 65 or so and u go from partial throttle to the floor, sometimes the trans does NOT kickdown all the time like u would expect and the engine basically drowns itself. and it can be dangerous when u rlly need to move outta a sticky situation and the truck falls on its face.


an intake and exhaust will not change that either....been there done that.

actually an aftermarket intake generally has a "whoosh" sound a second or so before the engine responds. This is very evident on the URD intake, K&N intakes, and IIRC the AFE stage 2 Si did it.... But once I installed the MAF calibrator, the engine responded immediatley and that silly "whoosh" sound was replaced by the engines rpm climb.

I do have ADHD and pickup on the little noises on my vehicles, so YMMV, and if ur a manual, u may not have the bogging issue since u should be able to select the right gear quicker.

Im not gunna get into hp claims as Ive never been on a dyno........but the kickdown issue I def remember. U can find dyno proof of performance changes on n/a and f/i elsewhere

The computer does not learn it has no intelligence it “adapts” it does not learn. Unless you can rewrite the look up table it is fixed to a figure at both ends it cannot go beyond the upper or lower levels. You may be able to trick the computer into adapting to a different value by changing the resistance of a part but it will not go beyond what is written into the EPROM. The general effect is higher fuelling so if you care about economy or spewing emissions it’s best to leave it alone the gains are minimal.
