Workshop - Tech sheet AU ECU start up

Just reading this tech sheet/ I have heard about the benefits of doing this..

Does the mentioned way in the tech sheet speed up the process and guarantee that the ECU will re-learn?

I was under the impression that the ECU will re-learn itself after the modifaction has been in place for a while? simialar to how the adaptive shift works...

Re: Workshop - Tech sheet AU ECU start up

The ecu doesn't need to be disconnected to re learn.

A quote from autospeed :

The fact is, every EFI car made within the last 10 years has a self-learning capability and the scope for extra power built into its factory ECU. Most cars can make up to around 20 per cent more power before they start to encounter ECU problems. And cars with mass airflow meters are even more tolerant of an increase in power.

This was discussed in a thread - i think - in the Inline 6 section not long back.

The ECU always learns, the start up is just to help it quickly learn how to idle reasonably well.
