There are no traditional plug and play tuners for Toyotas. Look at the URD MAF which only works in open loop mode(full throttle or high load situations) or a fully piggback ECU like the UCON-EMS or Unichip piggyback unit.

Good stuff whippersnapper. Edit on the MAF cal though. Open loop, instead of Closed loop.

Another good point about the UCON EMS, from www.urdusa.com, is that is comes with exhaust cam gears, and a cooler than stock thermostat. The benefits of those combined, is that your cylinder/combustion chamber temperatures will run cooler. Thus, a little more timing can be safely added to the tune, and you will pick up HP/TQ. That is only one feature of the ucon.

As compared to say the unichip, which has neither thee t-stat or gears, and adds some timing. (Preferably after tuned by a professional, and not Unichip's base map.)

Will the URD MAF Calibrator Sensor affect the warranty on the Tacomas?......

Just an FYI----

The unichip controls the fueling exactly the same way as the URD MAF Sensor Calibrator. Also, the unichip cannot alter fuel mixture in closed loop mode like we can do with the URD O2 or AFR Sensor Calibrators, or the UCON-EMS.
