FWIW, other "chips" are just resistors that "trick" your ECU into thinking its gettting cooler air than it really is. The URD MAF calibrator is the only real tunning system for our trucks.

Most of us just need to figure out how the hell to tune them.

With the right software, you can see all the needed info on the laptop. You really dont need a db guage. Thats only for exhausts.

The BD guage is to see your AF Ratio reading for the necessary adjustments to the MAF calibrator. How you going to know if your running to lean or to rich with no DB guage?

I thought you were talking about "db" as in Decible, I.E. sound pressure....LOL.., yes, the you do need to know the AFR, and most Dyno shops monitor that when you do a run.

So does anybody know the performance gains of the URD MAF?

1/4 mile
0-60
HP/torque curves
MPG

I know its an old thread but from what Ive gathered so far it adds at least 10+hp depending on what you have and the custom tune for it. Also depends on the elements(weather). I dont think it helps MPG. Theres no distinct answer that I can find. Theres a dyno sheet on the URD site on a stock 1GR-FE but you cant tell what it says. (It wouldnt matter anyway cause I dont know how to read em)
