    i'm looking at adding a cai, dc header, 2 1/2" exhaust and have heard that the sensors have to be recalibrated accordingly. was told by toyota and a couple of others that it was'nt neccesary. any other feedback or info out there?

    The URD MAF Sensor cal. would do the most for you.

    You are send all that money on your mods. But you aren't doing anything to tell your engine that you are doing it. Your engine won't just figure it out. The MAF sensor cal. reworks your air ratio so you get the right amount of air going to your engine. For $250 bucks its worth it.

    i thought the intake sens. job is to notice the increase in air flow and adj. accordingly

    ok, did a little research and a good expl. for recalibrating. the factory cal. is based on air flow and factory intake dia. when you increase dia. your comp. does'nt that so you have to tell it

    Exactly. Sorry I wasn't going to bother with all the technical detail.
