    urd maf calibrator will be a decent start. full exhaust will yield a little.....and i do mean full exhaust. other than that.....you have stated the obvious and most effective power gains.

    Lots.
    If you want power you don't want to just get a muffler.

    I am yielding definite gains over stock power with:

    TRD Cold Air Intake
    TRD Cat-Back Exhaust
    URD MAF Sensor Cal.
