Ok guys I have a question. So Ive been reading about the Unichip for the 2000 Tundra and man would I love to get one but the price is rediculous. Has anyone looked at ebay at the chips they have for example the G BOX? I have looked at the ads, read the feedback, and pondered the idea. I certainly am almost 100 percent sceptical of buying one for I do not want to harm my engine over a 150 dollar chip some garge mechanic slapped together. Has anyone out there have a chip other than the 900 dollar unichip? Is it safe? Is it noticable? What are the pros and cons? Let me know I am really curious I dont have 900 dollars for something I cant even see.......but is the diffrence worth it if I did have that amount to blow (and if I can sneak it in past the wife!ha ha ha)

Thanks

its worth it, i mean its not like s/c or turbo gains, but its something you feel, mostly in the upper rpms. if you goto the unichip sight they have a dyno. 900 bucks was kinda steep, but you get what you pay for. if u ever get any other mods, you can just tune it, although unichip tune shops are far and few in between. another option is the jet chip although i havent heard of anyone here having it. i understand you have to send your whole ECU in to get reflashed and every time you get a new mod it has to be done again. 500 bucks cheaper, but more down time, plus the s/h and insurance. good thing about the UNI is if you ever want to sell your truck, you can just remove it.

back in the day, Jet chips didn't really show improvements for the older Tundras...not sure why.

The Unichip shows gains through the entire rpm range...it's a big gain at peak just by itself, add headers+exhaust etc. and it really moves. Buy it before you buy anything else for power--ie intakes, exhaust, headers and stuff.

Power doesn't drop off much after peak anymore...it runs hard all the way to redline, grabs a gear, and keeps pulling...even with 35s and stock gears. Add long tubes, exhaust and cold air with a ram kit, and it really gets up and moves, especially on the B map with midgrade fuel.
