    with my '99 Tacoma, we would reset the computer (disconnect the bettery terminal) for an hour or so when certain mods were done (i.e. changing the intake). As I just changed to the Afe Pro dryS, I am wondering why some have said there is no need to reset the computer. Have there been changes?
    I will probably just reset mine (nothing better to do today), and as the last three tanks of gas showed actually a decrease in MPG...

    Any input?

    cant really reset the computer in the newer tacomas by unhooking the battery cable. basically, with the new filter, you will have to go thru a few tanks of gas and let the computer relearn the new air flow, then you'll start seeing an increase.:)
