    I'm installing a trd cold air intake on Friday and I wanna reset my ecu before I fire up after install. I searched and couldn't find anything. I figure disconecting the battery will do the job but how long should it be disconected? Thanks guys.

    I want to reset the ECU on my 2007, so I'm also interested in this question. Seems to be a wildly wide range of opinions on how long is really necessary.

    What is the point on resetting the ECU? I have not read anything on this yet.

    Basically, it forces the ECU to re-learn your driving habits. 20 mins should be fine.

    I'm personally doing it because I'm switching to higher octane gas for a while as an experiment, so I want the ECU to start off fresh and not work off of adjustments it's made under the lower octane stuff.
