    Disconnect the battery

    This sounds like a stupid question to me (probly is) . . . . .
    I have been reading thru a few posts on here and it seems that after most ppl change engine parts they disconnect the battery. if i change to iridiums, and ive put the K&N on should i disconnect the battery to allow the ecu to register more air flow and better spark, or will it learn as i drive it??

    It will learn as you drive, no need to remove the battery IMO.

    there's no point disconnecting the battery unless you've made some fairlymajor changes... spark plugs and air filter aren't even close to being major

    I don't see how you would get the plugs out without unplugging the coil pack but it's best to unplug it seeing as your dealing with high voltage and if someone switches the ignition on while your messing there you could end up with a nasty shock
