From my search, I like this dealio with the ECU learning my habits. Now, for the ECU reset question: (Yes, I searched FIRST) From my search, it says to pull the EFI Fuse for a minute or leave the negative battery terminal off for 10 minutes. But, what's the deal with one guy saying "It'll drive rough for a week"? Another guy was sayin' that if you leave it off (neg. bat. terminal) for too long, the airbag light will come on and you have to get reset? (Isn't that the what I was tryin' to do in the first place? "reset")

I guess the big question is that I want to know what's the best way to reset and the downfalls (if any) from the reset.

As well, I'm in love with the turbo idea. So, just to help my NOOB WAYS, you need a 3S-GTE head w/ turbo manifold, right? I just got off one sight that sells the turbo manifold made to clear all Camry from 1990 to 2000. Is this legit or bs? THANKS ALL!!!

The easiest way to reset the ECU in a Toyota is to pull the EFI fuse... Just make sure you wait a minute or two before putting it back in. The ECU will have to re-learn how to idle and control fuel after that, so if you have any modifications it may run rough for a bit. Don't worry about it and just drive normally.

The manifold from a 3s-gte motor will bolt up fine to a 3s-fe, 3s-ge and a 5s-fe. You do not want to put on the 3s-gte head on to your motor without extensive other work... Just so you know, the manifold is just about the easiest part of the turbo setup - you have a long way to go otherwise before finishing a turbo project... :)

White90DX, that turbo set-up is AWESOME! It looks sweet. How much do you get outta that, hp-wise? What was the cost for the whole deal? You do it yourself?

Sorry for the question, it's just a really clean looking install. I've seen really "busted" installs before.

In anycase, as for the ECU reset, my car is stock. So, do you think the reset will be that big a thing? In otherwords, what am i gonna see diff when I reset? I mean, I just don't wanna freak for no reason.

ohhhh.. side note.. I was drivin' today and I smelled somethin' smokey (I parked the Cam and was at the front end, pullin' my cell out of my pocket) Anyways, I popped the hood and all was norm EXCEPT the "enging coolant" (that's what was on the top of the bottle), the lid of it had popped off. The liquid inside didn't spill, atleast from my check of the ground and the inside of the engine bay. What do you think the smoking smell could be? (I won't lie... I got a heavy foot but it's not ALWAYS down.. I had just passed a slow Hon-duh and a UPS truck to get to the Toyo dealership) Yeah, the car is dealer-bought and I had to take my state inspection test results back to him to process my tags, title, etc.
