Default How to rest the ECU???

I know this has been posted before by one of the tuners here- Not sure if it was shiv. It seemed that these steps can make a stock WRX gain a little HP at least for a short amount of time

THe steps I do remember were

1) Disconnect bat
2) Step on brakes for some amount of time
3) Reconnect bat
4) Cruise at like 30-40mph at low revs while keeping a load on engine- Tricks the ECU

Does anyone have that info or a linky to it? I'd like to give it a try

Thanks

I think you got it with steps 1 - 3. Not sure what step 4 means.

4 is shivs way of getting the ECU to set itself to the most aggressive state of tune to start out with. What you do it get the car to 3k or so....slightly hold the brake and gas to get the car to boost a few psi without accellerating but maintaining rpm. I forgot how long to do this for but it's not very long.

i think you are looking for this??

I could only find reference to it on that forum.

It sets the IAM higher than normal for a re-set ecu. If you have an ecutek from vishnu that is like less than 3 montsh old, you don't have to do it.
