    So I take it you ordered one? If so, could you update us on how good/bad it works?
    Does the URD have an "auto optimize" to it or do you have to tune it?
    Sorry, don't mean to hijack this.

    I understand. Let us know if the set of your pants feel and increase in performance.I have been eying this for a while. I have the TRD exhaust and Volant CAI with the ram air attachment. Other spending on headers or SC, I would like a little better HP and or gas mileage.
    Thanks

    Of course they say their chip works. Would be hard to sell em otherwise! That's the beauty of the off-road only label. You can pretty much claim whatever and no one gives a crap otherwise. And with statistics, you don't even have to fudge the numbers to make it look good.

    That must be a real bitch getting those into 'boost mode' at freeway speeds.

    Joe:
    "Yo' BOB, we going to boost past this fool!"

    Bob:
    "Yeah man!"

    Joe:
    "Well hit the boost controller"

    Bob:
    "OK!" (Crawls out window and starts tugging on the rip cords...)

    Haha!

    @Chip post

    I personally prefer bake lays dill pickle/ketchup or dorrito sweet chili heat.

    @OP
    Chips for gas engines don't really work. Diesels on the other hand (Correct me if I am wrong) change the PSI which the electronic waste gate opens thus given you more boost giving you more power. Neat thing about those is you change how hard/soft your shifts are :eek:

    Gas engines chips will get you very little gains no matter what you put them on.
