Yes, you should always reset the ECU after a HP changing mod. It doesnt matter if you have a CEL or not, it resets the ECU so it can learn to the new mods.

Go do that and see. Take off negative terminal on Batt. and let it sit for about a minute. Your car is gonna be retarted for a little bit and will clear up and run great.

isnt the ricer sound at 2500-3000 around there.? i know thats how my car is.. then after that its fine. even when i didnt have headers and just had exhaust it was around the 2500-3000rpm range..



yea u prolly gettin up to the 3000 rpms a lil faster lol.. i was gettin better gas milage when i got my exhaust. i was gettin anywhere from 22-26.. now with headers install i get 20... nothing more nothng less..

no below 3000 rpm it sounds deep and mean, above 3000rpm its like someone is grabbing the balls and squeezing them, i hope my magnaflow cat comes in by next week, its killing me not being able to floor it and really hear how it sounds
