    I got about 200 miles on my truck and some time today. I was wondering if I need to break in my engine a bit before I put it on? If not I am going to install it today.

    So I should have done it when I installed my exhaust? I thought it was a safety thing. I do electrical work so I am in that frame of mind, I was not touching any wires why do I need to pull the power supply. Well I guess I have something to do at work during lunch tomorrow.

    for the exhaust...its really not necessary, since there arent any sensors after the exhaust. its not totally necessary for an intake either, as the engine computer will relearn the new mix.,......but disconnecting the battery cable speeds up the process.
