    The ECU doesn't need to be reset at all - changing the exhaust pipe is a straight swap over when done correctly. But in this case, I bet that the exhaust fitter damaged one of the lambda sensors on the front section when doing the work.

    Time to go back and remonstrate with them.

    And BT W - This is an exhaust problem not a Scottish problem, so wrong forum
