    I would guess 5-15hp, but more importantly, you'll be able to run a tune that is safe for your truck.

    Running a safe tune is the benefit of getting the MAF cal.

    If you install it without tuning it, you will either be running a neutral map, and will see no changes at all (no tuning being done). Or you could have a map that is loaded on there that may not be good for your mods (dangerous).

    So either way, you will need to tune it to make sure it fits your needs.

    doesn't it come already tuned when you buy it from urd with the correct software for the intake system your running on the truck?

    from what i've read, it seems that it does come pre-programmed but to the specs that urd used on an x-runner. and that if you have any additional or different mods you will need to either hook it up to your laptop or take it in and have it dyno'd to get the appropriate setup for your specific application.

    op: on urd's website it says that they dyno tested and gained 15 hp at the wheels. heres the link
