    I'm pretty new to the MAF Calibrator, and looking for any information on the setup.

    First and foremost, do you guys think this is a worthwhile upgrade for the money? I'm currently at Denver, and the Tacoma certainly screams going over the mountain pass. I'm hoping to free up a bit of horsepower if possible, not sure if I can expect much from this unit.

    I know this unit is tuneable... will I need to get the truck dyno'd to get an accurate tune? I have a cat-back exhaust, and am considering a URD TCAI and would like to dial it all in if possible. Are there basemaps floating around out there to get me somewhat close?

    Is there a cheap way to build a piggy-back wiring harness? Unfortunately, the MAF Calibrator is a splice-in kit, which I'm not overly comfortable with. You can buy a piggy-back kit from URD at $300 (more than the cost of the calibrator...?!)

    Any more information that you can provide would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

    The Maf Calibrator can be set up with a generic MAP for an exhaust and an intake before its shipped to ya. Best results are with a dyno tune, but I dont think one is required.

    Assuming I purchase a used one, can I download these generic maps somewhere? Is there a posting where people are sharing their maps?

    If you buy one used, I belive you need to make sure its for the same truck. You may be able to send it back to URD and have them program it. You should probably talk to Gadget at URD just to be safe, and see what he says.

    Def talk to gadget and I'm pretty sure they are fairly universal.

    If you want to get the most out of the sensor you are going to want to re-map it. Gadget will probably send you the software. You will need to take the rear plate off the sensor and plug it into your computer (Has to be a PC).

    I love mine. I have it calibrated for TRD Intake and TRD Exhaust. I have since thrown on some Doug Thorley headers so I will get it re-tuned soon hopefully.
