yeh it does

what i ahve always been told is
-Reconnect the battery obviously
-Leave to idle in park for 2min
-Idle in drive, stationary for 2min
-Idle in park with AC Max on for 2min
-Idle in drive, stationary, with AC Max for 2 min

Then take for a drive, hold it in gears and basically just run through all of the functions like demister etc. Drive it hard

Thats what i have always done and it seems to work alright, takes it a couple of weeks of driving untill it is perfect though

there is a learning procedure like mentioned above, but its not really nessesary.
just connect the battery start it and away you go, it will learn its closed loop function as it drives...

The wife's AU on gas has always been really sluggish, disconnected the battery heaps of times for various reasons, always ends up bit sluggish.
Anyway I did the whole procedure listed above about a month ago, massive difference, drives much better, goes harder and is better on fuel. She has even noticed the difference, which is really saying something.
