Question MAF Tuning

Ok, so I'm at the point of either renting the tools needed to tune my truck, or take it to a performance shop and fork out some cash. Anyone here self tuned their truck with satisfied results?

What are the steps, and what am I looking for? I uploaded the software on my laptop and no dice, cant do nothing with it. Or, do I need to hook it up to my OBDII port for it to actually become active.

Hey, install is easy and the MAF Cali does have possitive effects, but where is my guidance if I never even tested normal ranges of AFR for any vehicle.

Some, any guidance would be helpful. I will do it on my own if it's cut and dry. Trial and error leads to bad days..

Thanks in advance...

Nah. I havent tunned yet, but when dealing with pulleys; you are basically reducing drivetrain drag, rather than effecting the Air/Fuel ratios.

Anything dealing with internals ie... compression, AFR, exhaust would need tuning.

Belts drag and all would just start effecting power. Good for increased Throttle, but if not careful, you can start reducing alternator performance and all. But I would not worry to much because NST seem to have a good rep on the perf market. And seem to be comitted to producing some quality mods for the Tacoma.

Yup, guess I will be tuning at a shop. That PDF was foreign to me. I will stick to Bolt ons but tuning will be the job of qualified Techs.

Thanks for the link though...

No problem. I'm hoping I'll have the cash for a MAF cal and other goodies next year.
