IMO,.. nowadays K & N is just a name/fad,.. but in answer to your ? Yes reset your computer,.. because there is more air coming into the engine now.

resetting as in just pulling the fuse, going through the turn process and replacing the fuse?

resetting????? our system is speed density, everytime it takes in air and makes a mixture it makes a calculation, we have a MAP sensor that helps measure airflow into the engine, the pcm makes calculations based on MAP, TPS, IAT, and fuel mixture resetting your pcm is not going to do anything to MORE accurately measure airflow.

Your absolutely right. But what it does is speed up the process of your PCM adjusting to new mod, in this case cooler air.

thats what the IAT is for, and the IAT sensor will change timing and mixture due to the "more dense" air, the coldness isnt what the key is, its the more oxygen in the colder air, ive taken capstone courses from chrysler lol im telling you every time a fuel mix is made the computer makes a calculation, resetting the pcm is not going to do anything lol
