computer reset?!?!?

Recently installed my aFe CAI on my 2010 5.7 CM, along with MangaFlow CAT back exhaust. Saw some posts about people having their computers reset? Is this necessary, or not?

You dont have to reset it, but it speeds up the learning curve. If you dont reset it will be a gradual gain. Few hrs of driving vs few days of driving.

When you say reset your computer. You're just talking about unhooking the battery for a while, right? Or are you talkin about taking ur truck somewhere and having someone flash it?

U have to leave the battery unhooked for 30 mins or so to allow the capacitors to fully drain. Then your truck will be rest, you will notice it will shift differently and some other misc. things.

ok that's what I thought. But just wanted to make sure there wasn't something special that I didn't already know about.
