Discussion Starter #1
While visiting my local lexus dealer and discussing the application of K&N filters on said vehicles one of the service techs said that for the car too utilize the efficiency of the filter the computer had to recoganize that a different filter was being used. To do this it was advised that the neg (-) battery terminal connection be removed for 45 minutes and then reconnected. When the vehicle was then started the computer would recognize that the air was flowing easier and re-set itself for the more efficient air flow thus producing better gas milage and HP. Is this true and would it be advised to do on the SSR if a K&N filter were being used?
Thanks for any replys.

The Newer vehicles have a learning computer on board. It will adjust its flow curve after averaging the differance after a few miles.

Fuzzy and the dealer are correct, I've been told resetting the computer is a faster way of getting the new airflow sensed but the computer will learn the new airflow on it's own after awhile.

With the SSR you can clear the adaptive memory by removing fuse #27 (in the fuse box under the hood) for 5 minutes then reinstall and drive it like you stole it. It will relearn everything including the way you drive.

I'd like to see this in the TIPS thread :jester (or is it already there?)
