      I never really thought about this. Should I reset my ECU for the higher performance exhaust system? I did with my K&N FIPK. I am giving my X an oil change right now and it occured to me. BTW, has anyone forgot to do it, then did it and noticed an improvment?

      Thoughts.

      how long has it been since you put on the exhaust? The computer will relearn slowly if you don't reset it, but if it was in the last 10 days or so, go ahead. You'll probably notice a difference.

      An occasional reset, especially after any engine mod, is a good idea.

      It was done on the 18th of Sept. this year. I guess I should go ahead and do it, right? If so for how long... I hear so many different time spans to leave it disconnected...any where form a couple of minutes to 1/2 an hour and an hour. Thanx guys.

      1/2 hour disconnected, idle with all acc off for 15 mins then go drive it hard for a bit.
