    Pioneer Avic Z2 navigation with ipod and bluetooth, K&N 77 Series intake, DT Headers, Flowmaster 50 exhaust, All Weather Mats, Fog Light Mod, Debadged, 20% tint all around, custom blue dome, maps, steering wheel, shifter lights, and cluster, Midland CB with PA, XD Series Revolvers wrapped in BFG AT's, black mesh grillcraft grill
    So im stoked with my new intake, headers, and exhaust but I figured that now that I have it all, I should probably tune everything for optimized performance. Any suggestions? Ive heard that the URD MAF Sensor Calibrator was a good thing to use. Does anyone have this that would like to share how it worked?

    Many people throughout the forums have the MAF calibrator. If you want it tuned perfectly though you're either gonna need someone who's familiar with the split second software or do a bit of learning. The calibrator does work well as far as power gains though and i wouldn't really recommend anything else.

    So how does the MAF calibrator work? Is it an easy product to use or do you really need to know what your doing?

    it hooks up by splicing into the ECU wiring behind the glove box. As far as tuning it, it needs to be hooked up to a laptop and the program can be learned with some patience, but it would definitely take a bit a time to make sure you know exactly what you're tuning. It's not something you'd want to make a big mistake with because it controls your air/fuel ratio to give you maximum power
