I installed a POP charger tonight. Does anything have to be done to get the computer to realize that there is now more air coming in. The first time I drove it tonight it seemed like it wasn't kicking down into passing gear as easily. After a few miles that seemed to go away.

Shouldn't have to. The MAF sensor will tell the computer about the added flow.

I know that when certain mods are done to our cars, it takes the ecu a day or two to adjust to it. Or, you can disconnect your negative battery cable for 24 hrs or so and it will reset, or at least i believe thats how it works.

You shouldn't have to reset the ECU... It will adapt regardless. That's the beauty of MAF-driven systems.

You'd probably want to reset the ECU to get rid of a nagging check-engine light, though if that were the case, I'd try to diagnose the problem so that it would never come back.

Never understood why people always say just undo the battery. There is a little screw that will do it really quickly. And tell you if you have any problems.

But you are probaly just immagineing things. I did the same thing on mine when i put the pop on. Give it a few days and everything will feel normal again. not only that but make sure your timeing and idle are good in a week or so. that will make the pop and auto feel so much better.

Thats my opinion and I could be wrong

You should have at least gotten a nice dinner first. You have to play a little hard to get.......b4 giving up the goodies.

Sorry the tone was just TOOO funny to resist

IIRC, the ECU takes approx. 500 miles to adjust to the mod. Resetting it just sets the fuel mapping back to a "factory default" setting. It will still take a while to adjust. Just go for a nice, looooooonnnnnnnggggggg drive this weekend!!
