in a way your right, all it does is clear the ECU of any error codes

as its a self-learning system though, its constantly adapting to different conditions (air flow/temps/etc) so resetting it will really do naf all!

pretty much spot on realy! best thing you can do is bin it!

just a case of unplugging it, then just blank off the valve on top of the manifold & the vacuum lines on the lil sensor thing which is just behind the secondary air pump...

found some pics of when i did it...
