    Chips are used in forced induction motors (turbos/superchargers) to reprogram fuel maps and force more air in faster. They don't do much for normally aspirated motors. Toyota has pretty much optimized everything already.

    yeah, i was just wondering if anyone had found anything that helped pull out a few more ponies. the only thin i have found so far has been the urd maf calibrater. since i have a exhaust and a cai.

    Since the manufactures have to make all engines conform to EPA standards(lean settings...jetted/injected) then I presume ther is no way to make your injected engine run,more on the rich side....to help decrease operational temps?.You would probably have to install an entirely different/reconfigured ECU?.

    i was kinda thinking that too. for a lot of newer cars ecu chips dont really work. you usually have to get the whole ecu, i have seen a few things that supposedly work tho, and i may give something a try because i want any power i can get, because obviously that 4 banger dont have a whole lot.
