He was able to figure it out after learning how the factory ecu functions, I'm sure the ecutek guys are a great resource. If you were running a dyno shop and had to fuss with an ecu that had a dynamic ignition advance multiplier that got set to "0" after every reset and you were resetting it up to 5 times during a tuning session...it would be time well spent figuring out how to optimize that process!
The stuff that hotrod talked about with octane is great too. Right after you fill up with high octane before some motorsports event, do a quick ecu reset in this fashion and if everything else is in proper working order youre basically guaranteed the best performance your car can give
