Ahh, ok. Is that distant dependent, or more time dependent? Like if I intall it and take a trip to Kansas City and back, or OKC, it'll be good after 100 miles?

It'* dependent on time and TYPE of driving. Drive it like you wish you could afford to. That'll accellerate the learning cycle.

custom PCM if there are no chip options.

Wildman, couldnt you just unplug the battery to reset everything? Would that make it learn faster?

I believe it won't make a difference, because it has to learn driving conditions. Will?
