    URD MAF Calibrator. Works wonders with other bolt ons. Without other mods it's kinda pointless.

    Yup. It's a little unnerving cutting into your ECU but there is a good power gain for the price you pay.

    Key words being "won't break the bank" lol

    APR X-1 is a great unit but it's like $1500.
