    Oh Yeah!!!
    Ok here's the deal.

    Been studying up on the URD MAF Cali. I really want this damn thing. But after looking at the install, I rather buy the plug & play set up. But that will run about $500 plus. Putting me way over budget, and that also means I would run stock Map program since tuning with scan tool or Dyno will dig deeper in pocket.

    Well there was one other thing I've been researching. Tom Woods one piece Drive Shaft. Looks about $300. Does anyone with 6spd Manual have this. I read good things on it, and was wondering if it's worth upgrading to a one piece. Right now I am running front level with 285/75/16's. And putting pretty good power to the wheels.

    Future Mods will be 3" coilover supension, re-gearing to 4.56, and yes the MAF cali tuned to my set up.

    Any thoughts if the TW drive shaft would be a good improvement to my truck?

    Thanks.

    I would do the suspension stuff first (coilovers) so you can determine if you need the TW.

    Thanks man...

    I need to think this one out. The install really bugs me. But if you are good with that kind of stuff, I'm up for the challenge.

    And I totally agree on the HP to the rear tires point.

    Which would you do if you had to choose as far as bang for the buck.

    By the way, want to thank all for helping out...

    if u have any DS vibes or clanking fromgears or anything, i'd go for the DS. urd also has a performance calibrator i think is different from the maf one...and it comes w/ a disc to put in a laptop and connect to it to tune it however u'd like. thats what i soldered in chad's truck.

    No real probs w/vibes, but do hear clanking when back end pops over big ol speed bumps. Not sure where the sound is coming from though.

    Cool. The MAF Cali is the same, except his was ment for SC units, basically alowing him to adjust A/F Ratio & Timing.

    The one I want should be just as easy, or easier to install.

    Hey I'll call you later this week, sounds like you mite be able to save me from a giant headache. But yeah I will talk to you in a couple days when I figure out my final plan..

    Thanks.
