you'll get gains on the top end, but unless you get a maf cal, or apr-x1 dont expect huge gains

I am new to doing all these mods so can you explain what a maf cal, or apr-x1 are? I am not sure what these are or what they do.

So are you recommending the afe stage 2?

You already have a cold air intake. Stock is cold air.

Correct. Just get a AFE pro dry s filter and be done forever for $80.
Get a TRD cat back exhaust and get the added sound AND the power your looking for. I just did and really am surprised with the HP increase. I can notice a nice sound and power increase in the 2200 to 3200 RPM.
Hope this helps.

Check out the deckplate mod. Its 20x cheaper and will actually give you mpg/hp gains. Plus, it still gives you a pretty cool sound once you hit 3k rpms.

he has a 2nd gen, and to the op, the urd maf cal, changes your afr to compensate for the intake, and make your truck run smoother. the apr-x1 is a stand alont unit but gives you full control of your engine.

i am still trying to learn what this all means, I am new to doing mods. What is the urd maf cal. Also what is the apr-x1.

It looks like you put an afe cai on yours, is that something you would recommend?

URD = Underdog Racing Development, google them and check out their website. You can search for stuff on their website for your year.

AFR - Air/Fuel Ratio

MAF - Mass AirFlow Sensor

The APR-X1 is a unit which controls your engine. It's fairly expensive but people here say good things about it. Apparently if you couple it with a supercharger you'd have a pretty mean Taco.

if you get an aftermarket intake... get either TRD or Afe stage 2... everything else are not true cold air intakes, otherwise stay stock with new filter
