tunings-disconnected battery

for some reason the "instructions" for my s&b intake install said to disconnect the battery. I assumed at first it was for safety's sake, but then thought maybe it was to reset the computer. If that WAS the case, did I loose my tunings?

I do know for certain that the TCM forgot what the Fk it learned... Do I need to re-load stuff?

I would think that the tune is still there but if your worried just reload the tune.

No, the tune will not be gone if you disconnected the battery. And there is absolutely no reason to disconnect the battery for an intake install....maybe on a stock truck, but not a tune truck.

I believe they are saying that because you are removing/disconnecting MAF sensor on the intake to move it to the new one, I never diconnect the batteries for that kind of stuff, but I guess you are "supposed" to.
