    I finally got around to putting a catback in. So the exhaust now runs JBA headers, Missing front cat, and a Gibson stainless exhaust. On the in bound side I've got a volant CAI. The question is what whose does the best job on either re-mapping the ecu or piggybacking it to take advantage of the mods I've made so far. I was leaning towards a uni-chip. or going all out and doing somthing like an E-manage from Greddy, but there again I'd like to use a proven map and not screw around with it myself. I hear alot about the URD MAF calibrator, but I think there is more to creating a better map than tricking the MAF. I've also tried to do this smart not cheap so I'm ignoring all the $14.99 chips on E-bay. Any ideas?

    APR X-1. It is the best performance calibrator available for the 1GR motor.

    After that, the Map ECU 2 or URD Maf cal. If you check out Jaxchrisfla's recent dyno, he gained 12hp/32tq by switching from the URD MAF cal (tuned) to the APR X-1. Dyno proven.

    Anything out there with a tune possibly optimized for mpg and possibly lower octane?
