ecu will not need to learn anything. You will notice very little difference actually. The k&n has a very similar flow rate to the standard paper filters anyway. No real gains to be had. Apart from being able to wash and reoil it.

i put a cheap pod on my ef a while ago, all it did was suck 10 times more fuel and need more boot on the hills, then i put the stok gear bak on, then ripped the stok intake pipe off it and put a au intake pipe on it and it made a huge difference
