Airaid cai. Bbk 77mm tb. Mpt tune

So I recently installed my new airaid cai and bbk tb. I must say I am very impressed. The car sounds deeper and growls more. I can feel the increase in speed. Previously I was running a 6.1sec 0-60. With the new parts I'm running a clear 5.2sec. Almost a whole sec difference. Now I'm just waiting on my custom tune to Come. I did install SCT's preloaded tunes which increased my 0-60 to around 4.9 seconds. Of course all these numbers are estimates done by a handheld timer. I returned my car to stock after.

Sadly I did not see any mpg increase like people have stated. I recently was told to reset my KAM which I did but idk how that would help. .. maybe some of u can help me with that? Need to gain some knowledge. I did get a vehicle ID block code after but I cleared the DTCs and it didn't come up again. What does resetting the KAM do and when should I do it? After I did it my car seems to be shifting at different points then before and when I brake the rpms go down to about 500 previously it would be at around 900. I can hear the downshifting when ever I brake. Still, finally my mpg has increased. The car does seem a lot more responsive now though.

Aha my bad I meant 73. As I said these were all hand held Timing. Ill let you know the exact time when I can. I was more curious as to what the KAM reset did though.

It has been proven that stickers give hp. My neighbor with the CRX can prove it.

Just teasing.

Hand held timing is difficult to gauge so a better way is to either hit the track or race a friend every time you guys add a mod.
