    Default confused...(again)

    Ive seen quite a few threads about the air box mod and k&n filter lately, some of them are saying its best to disconnect the battery for 20 mins so the ECU can reset and "start afresh" with the new filter and increased airflow. I didnt do this when I did the mod, but have noticed improvement in the car and the way it drives...

    what I want to know is..after a few miles does the ECU reset it self when it realises theres more airflow...?? or should I disconnect the battery etc....

    thanks in advance...
    Bob.

    Never disconnected the battery on mine since i've had the car. I've fitted a number of tuning boxes to it as well over the past year. I think the ECU adapts itself anyway. Might be wrong though

    I did the airbox mod and haven't noticed any difference. Might try disconnecting the battery and try again. Will get back with results...

    a short time with the battery disconnected will not affect whether or not the ECU retains the keycodes...
