Resetting the Computer
From: Jordan Checkwood

My car is a 1994 Integra GS-R with some basic bolt on performance mods. A DC DAC intake system, A DC Ceramic coated header, and a Brospeed (RustSpeed) cat-back exhaust system.

After the installation of the DC header which my buddy and I did (a 45 min job) The idle of my car has dropped from the usual 750-900rpms to around 300-600rpms. So following the advice of some fellow Integra Page editors and a few people from the Honda Performance List. I tried Resetting the Computer. Since there seems to be widely varying opinions on how to accomplish this I did the following which made the most sense to me.

  1. Disconnected the Positive and Negative wires from the battery
  2. Waited like 3-5 minutes to be sure
  3. I reconnected the Battery and started up the car...making sure not to hit the gas, as many have advised. I let the car run like 3 minutes. Then I turned it off
  4. I restarted the car and to my surprise It does Idle better and now at around 750-800rpms Still not Ideal In my book but better.
  5. I then took the car out for a little ride.
Overall I would say that Resetting the computer after adding performance modifications is a worthwhile and easy thing to do.
