Just had the FSE fitted yesterday :)
Obviously I've noticed an increase in "nippyness" and will notice more when the full-flow on.
I wondered if I need to reset the ECU though or if it isn't necessary. If so, which fuses do I need to remove instead of disconnecting the battery ?
Thanks in advance,
Steve

Coming soon...... :santa:

Its the 3a on in the engine compartment fuse box, Take it out leave it for 10 mins

For reseting the ECU its best doing it from cold

Leave the engine to idle until the temp is at normal working temp

Once it has warmed up hold the revs at around 1200rpm for 1 min

Then go for a drive, Try to drive under various conditions (no load, lots of load etc)

:thankyousign:
Thanks mate, but do I need to do it, or am I ok leaving it as it is as it does seem much nippier (especially at 4 and 5000 rev changes)?
---------------------------------------------
As for the fitting I didn't do it mate, but I gave a bloke I know a tenner to do it so I don't think so (I'm $hite with cars and only do *really easy things miself! ;) )

don't qoute me cos i am not definate, but i think that pulling the fuse speeds up the relearning process. Not pulling it just takes the ecu a bit longer to figure out whats changed, but like i say i am not sure about that?
