Just installed URD MAF calibrator!!

I just installed the URD MAF calibrator with the wiring harness. Had a minor issues with wires I switched up at first, but got it sorted out and it runs awesome! Thanks Gadget for helping me out

yeah there's not a big difference, but noticeable. It makes a hissing sound at higher RPM when the intake is sucking in more air

Do you have any pics on what the MAF looks like wired into harness? It might help someone in the future if they can see what wire goes where.

Depending on how your truck was running before, and how the new tune is you could see a very drastic change in performance to a very subtle change.

I don't think the engine is sucking in any more air than it was before due to the fact that the engine is a mechanical air pump and displaces the same as it did before. I do think though, that it probably helped lean out the AF a little to give you a leaner burn


Anyone have some before and after dyno numbers on this thing?

What is the easiest way to get it retuned?

I had it tuned for intake and exhaust and now I have headers so I'd like to get it retuned.

I was thinking about getting one for my 2TR, mostly to help mileage a little bit.

I went and got some quotes about tuning it at some local speed shops, everybody said around $250-$300 to tune it.

Was wondering if it was really simple to tune like the URD site says.

^ search around this forum. this urd maf doesnt do all that much for our 2tr's and is definetly not worth 500 bucks out the door with a tune... thats my 2 cents.

Wasn't going to get the timing one, just the MAF sensor calibrator, its only $250 vice the $500 one for boosted engines.

Like I said, I'm trying to squeeeeeeze MPG's out, not horseponies. I get approx 25 on the highway.

I want to take some road trips this year

I think my motors running rich, as it makes little popping noises from the exhaust upon deceleration.

no its not only 250 because you just mentioned its another 250 to tune from a shop that you got a quote. 250+250=500 bones

i dont think alot of 2tr's run the calibrator because it doesnt seem to benefit our engines in any way

I see what you're saying, that's why I asked if it was easily tunable, to avoid the other $250 for the speed shop tuning.

oh my bad. you can tune it yourself. urd gives you the software and you can do the tuning yourself on the street. street tunes are better than taking it to a shop anyway and having them dyno tune it.

it would probably be a good idea to get someone else to do the driving so you can keep an eye out on the software and the different characteristics of the truck so you can optimize your tune. i think there is a how to tune on their website or on gadgets wedsite.
