All I can tell you is I love mine, I noticed a boost in power from stock to adding CAI & Exhaust, then another boost in power with chip. (It's a piggyback system so I can flick the ON/OFF switch whenever I want. everything together was about 1000$ from autoanything shipped up to canada. Thats including the 15% Black Friday discount last Nov when I ordered.

One day I will get a Dyno and first place I'll put it is TW.

URD makes a MAF CAL "chip", it hard wires into your ecu and you can have it programed.

Uncertain, your best bet is to call Unichip or URD directly to ask them.

why does everyone think they're going to drop a piece of plastic in their truck and suddenly get better MPG and horsepower. HOW DO YOU THINK THAT'S GONNA HAPPEN? don't you think they would have designed it better from the factory? why would they design a vehicle that could easily be upgraded by a cheap piece of plastic? it's a ridiculous idea either drop on the supercharger or just enjoy what your truck already is, a formidable, reliable vehicle

Biscuits- it makes sense when you take into account that the chip is basically designed to maximize performance in your aftermarket mods. Not a stock engine. They do work, because they allow the mods to work with the engine, not against it. From what I understand... I know they work cause I live in santa ana with all these giant ass lifted trucks and they all have these chips haha

What a lot of people refer to as a "chip" is actually a re-programmer. Talking to the Mustang guys, they'd say they "chipped" their car, when they used a Diablo, which is actually a programmer. Most actual chips are useless, while programmers do make a difference.

oh I don't doubt the use of aftermarket calibrators that will tune the engine to account for extra goodies like intakes and exhausts, but a lot of guys assume they can buy some magical chip and their stock engine will suddenly become more powerful and get more mpgs
