i think the only true module, as far as chips go, that will actually amount to anything is the urd maf calibrator. there really arent any "chips" for the newer tacomas. i cant really comment on the unichip, as i havent heard enough about it, but there is alot you can do with the maf calibrator. not saying the unichip doesnt work, just havent heard anything about it, and have heard lots of good about the urd product.

With other mods you might unlock enough extra with a MAF Cal or the Unichip. But as a source of massive power gains...The chip alone just isn't it.

You need to do some engine/systems work before you get outside the stock ECU's capability to compensate with the changes. (Like a complete air, fuel, or electrical system rebuild- forced induction for example) or new engine components- like cams valves, injectors)

If you are planning on making a big prohect out fo it...Unichipo might be for you. My last truck had a SC and I used seperate piggy back fuel systems and a boost timing retard system. But it was a Dodge around 250cshp stock....and a 450rwhp when I got done.

Figure out how much you want to put into the engine and go from there...

When it comes to performance and the 4.0L 1gr, the unichip is low on the suggestion list.

If you are wanting the most power out of the engine the APR X-1 controller is the best route. The next in recommendations would be the Map 2 ECU. Then for n/a vehicles just looking to make sure the air fuel ratio is solid, and picking up few extra hp the URD Maf Cal is a good product.

Ya that's a tough one to do... building low end torque. Forced Induction is a good way to build a bunch of low end.
