    Default New MAF sensor... ECU re-program needed?

    Just picked up a 3rd party MAF from Unipart as mine is faulty.

    It's branded as Fuel Parts UK and there's a seal on the box which says "ECU may need to be reprogrammed"

    Anyone know what this is about? I thought it would be just a straight swap...

    Just a generic warning as manufactures some need you to reset the learning curves.

    Won't cause a problem. Engine may feel a little jerky for a while when it's learning but that's it. Nothing to worry about.
