I just installed the Airaid for 2012 like a week ago, I didn't do a dyno or anything but i did see i improvement in power and pickup, I cant wait for the exhaust to get in.

Also i left the lid thing off for now i will put it on during the winter though, and may just put it on a leave it but who knows haha.

Edit: I also have a M/T truck, so i notice it a lot when I shift.

By tune, do you mean dyno tune or like the URD MAF calibrator?

Calibrator or other device since you can't do anything to the stock ECU.

I havent personally dealt with the URD MAF calibrator so I don't really know what it's functions are. I've used SuperChips and Bullydogs in my past trucks, but I don't know what Is all out there for the Taco but, pretty much whatever tells the computer that you have an aftermarket intake/exhaust and tells it to take in more air/fuel and release more air will work. If not, just taking in the same amount of air as a stock setup. Just makes a louder noise(due to no resonator).

So with the URD calibrator, I could program it to draw more air? Could this also be done with the stock intake but new filter and secondary filter removed?

The calibrator doesn't control air flow. What it does is lies to the stock ECU so that it injects more fuel for the available air. It would improve power with the stock stuff. It only works at full throttle and high load situations.

check out my URD Maf Cal Review Here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/per...or-review.html

made a world of difference with my intake. Intakes do make more power than the stock setup, it just depends on the type. Most anyone will recommend the afe stage 2 si (same as TRD gen 1) or the URD one. Both are dynoed by gadget to make an extra 10-15 whp. However the maf cal really brings it out with the correct map

I honestly feel more power at all load levels with the maf cal compared to before. The only thing that really distinguishes itself at WOT, is that my intake will stop resonating since its getting the extra fuel it needs.

When you look at the fuel map provided by gadget in the tuning software, you can clearly see that he has enriched the ratio way before you even reach full throttle. Pretty cool to see how your engine reacts to your right foot when you have it hooked up to your computer...

Any dyno runs to prove the gains besides ones that include other mods.

Don't do it for gains.....sound and a reusable filter makes it worth it (used for a good price atleast)!

More air means less filtration but I'm sure its not a big deal as long as its not generic walmart filters!
