Thanks for keeping us posted. I cannot wait to get home so I can start putting my mods on my truck. I have been trying to find a piggyback that would benefit me the most but would also not cost me over a grand. Keep the posts coming, you may be my deciding factor on the unichip or waiting for gadget to make a plug and play for 2009+.

Lotek Inc. makes the gauge pod. I havent installed it yet was wanting to wait and have it dyno'd with and without the unichips. But after looking over my truck real good after having the headers and y-pipe installed im not too happy with that shops quailty of work. So I dont think im going to have it dyno'd there now. And its the only shop close. So I believe I may just throw the unichips on it and use the good ole butt dyno for precise measurements of hp & torque gains.

Looks good. I still wouldn't run the pillar pod with my curtain air bags though.

Talking Update!

I know its been awhile been busy with work and other things. But I have an appointment tomorrow at 9am to put my truck on the dyno. I'm going to dyno it without the Unichips and after I install the it. Im going to try and do a couple of pulls before and after the unichips. I only have an hour dyno time so we shall see......will post pics and dyno sheets asap.

So how did it go? What parameters were you able to change and monitor? Very interested in a piggyback since there seems to be nothing for 2008+.

HERE IT IS!!!

Alright guys & gals here it is. Alittle background to start out with. I have had this kit for awhile but I wanted to put it to the test and see if the $600 I payed for it was actually going to do anything.

MOD's: AFE CAI,TRD S/C w/reflash,JBA shorties,URD Y-Pipe & Fuel Pump, Magnaflow Catback.

Pull #1 (1st dyno graph) - This is without the unichips. We did a second pull and made almost identical numbers. Notice how rich the air/fuel is. To be expected coming from Toyota wanting it to be safe.

Pull #3 (2nd dyno graph) - This is with the Unichip installed and running on MAP A which is there "low" setting. MAP B has more agressive timing. On this pull the air/fuel went dangerously lean. Hitting around 13 all the way to redline!! It was running so lean that they did not want to make another full pull. We did one more run on MAP A just running it up to around 4000 rpms still running way too lean. So we flipped the switch to MAP B (to see if maybe it would richen up) and did a light pull again to 4000rpms while keeping a close eye on the air/fuel it too was the same Dangerously too lean. (It did make more hp but lost tq as well)

(3rd dyno graph) - Is a overlay of the full pull without unichips and with the unichips on MAP A.

I contacted Unichips about this and they blamed it on the dyno saying that they are very inaccurate for newer vehicles. And a run on the dyno is not the same as driving it on the street. They were suppose to have one of there "technicans" contact me but never heard back. Also, they said they've never tested a urd fuel pump kit but still sent me a "tune" that was suppose to include it. They didnt inform me of this when I bought it.

(If you click on the dyno runs and go to my photos and click again it will enlarge so you can see it better)

I can't quite make out the numbers. The graphs look good. The frickin torque curve looks great. Can you confim the before and after numbers? Thanks for posting.

Unless things have changed with the pipe bomb, they are know to rust pretty badly. The URD Y-Pipe is made from 304 stainless steel. It isn't going to rust. The older pipe bombs obviously were made out of at best 409. Cheap steel.

If it only takes a washer or so for clearance, the better choice is clearly the URD Y.

I know that Unichip always comes with a pre-loaded map, to get you buy, but have you now thought about tuning it to get the AFRs and timing where they need to be? I am positive that you could pick up more hp and tq with that thing tuned for your specific vehicle.

Odd the comment they said about the fuel pump. Since that is simply there to prevent high rpm lean out. Just keeps the fuel flowing, since the stock one can't.

Ummm... DID you SEE the overlay??? Its crap! With unichip tuned you LOOSE gobs of torque and horsepower BELOW 4700 rpm! All gains are made above 4700rpm! No way its worth it for the few hp & tq above 4700rpm!

The catch with the Unichip unit is that unless you buy the tuning software only Unichip certified retailers can tune it.

Yes I SEEN THE OVERLAY.........If you look at it closer you will see that when it did start to make more power the air/fuel was also starting to richen up from where it was running dangerously lean. So it has potential to make more power through the entire rpm band it just needs to bring the air/fuel ratio down to an acceptable level.
