Exhaust/ECU Upgrade 997 Turbo

Vehicle Information: Year: 2008; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6 TT Stock ; Total Mileage: 900;

Can you please explain the connection between the exhaust and ECU parameters? That is, I'm thinking about upgrading the exhaust with hi-flow cats realizing that a significant reduction in back pressure will result and, hopefully, increase performance. I'm wondering if the stock ECU parameters need to be modified to "match" the more free flowing exhaust system? Or is there no connection between back pressure and ECU mapping? Thanks,Dave

performance air filter versus cold air intake system

I am considering a GIAC ECU upgrade. I am interested in the difference between installinga performance air filter such as BMC or AFE. Will there be a performance difference from installing a cold air intake such as from EVOMS? I prefer to preserve the oem air box.Collin

Readiness Monitors Won't Reset

Vehicle Information: Year: 1997; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6 TT no mods; Total Mileage: 41000;

After a tranny rebuild by my dealer (broken shifter fork), I got a CE light, with code 1140. Dealer adjusted throttle cable and reset codes, but six weeks and 350 miles later, (all local driving) with many heat/cool downs my readiness monitors haven't reset.Shouldn't the monitors have reset by now? What needs to be done? My plates have expired and I cannot get it smogged until the monitors can be read.

2001 Turbo - Coolant Expansion Tank

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6 tt; Total Mileage: 16300;

The coolant expansion tank is turning yellow. Is that an indication that the plastic is breaking down and be replaced as a preventative measure? If so, it looks like the engine needs to be dropped.
