    Whats up fellas, i have a 2010 TRD Sport and i just ordered an AFE Stage 2 SI with the pro dry filter. Can anyone clarify what to do about the ECU? Should i reset it? This wont void the warranty will it? (i know installing the CAI wont..)

    I just wanna make sure i do everything correctly the fist time.

    Thanks for the welcome. Ive been lurking around for a little while, but I only found a couple posts about resetting the ECU for a CAI install, there was never a solid answer.

    just unplug the battery for a few hours, there is no flash or anything necessary for a CAI

    neither did I for the first CAI I had, but I heard it here somewhere so I figured I might as well do it.

    Thanks, i heard it was a good idea to reset, but does it void the warranty?
