    confused cold days is it worth resetting the ecu??

    As the days are getting colder and so the air temperature is dropping is it worth resetting the ecu.

    I know that the car should adjust for it. but would it make that much difference if any

    Just a thought

    waiting for a sea off no

    First no from me then. Can't see it making any difference as the car will know the temp and adjust.

    The MAF has a temp sensor in built so the mass of air can be calculated.

    Fuelling will be adjusted as normal.

    i never bothered resetting the ecu after the caterman T box mod. Is it worth doing it now 6 months on or has the ecu already changed itself??
