    Have any of you guys installed "Unichip" on your Tacoma's. I went to 4 Wheel Parts and they said this is the only one that will work on Tacoma's. I have an 05 Double Cab Prerunner. Was hoping someone installed it and can tell me if they noticed any gains or is this a waste of $400?

    IMO dont waste the money on a unichip it is a pain in everyway possible, if you are wanting performance gains through a chip then save up and buy the UCON ems system from URD.

    With those other 2 kinds do you have splice into existing wires? Currently I only have K&N Cold Air Intake. I'm just trying to boost power and towing ability and gain fuel mileage. Eventually I will be getting exhaust but that is my next step. Thanks for all your guys knowledge and help.

    My driving habits are really good. I'm averaging 22-24 mpg on the hwy and 18-20 mpg in the city. I was just trying to get the best gas mileage out of the vehicle.

    Thanks for letting me know. Guess I won't waste my money on a chip
