Exhaust mod

i am thinking of getting this downpipe and catback combo. its much cheaper since its off brand, and sounds like it will do the job just fine. what am i going to need to do computer wise to my rex? do i need to just reset my ecu or reflash it? what are the differences b/w those 2 and how much is it to reflash. any other things that will need to be done for this mod?
thank you for all info
Jeff

You don't have to do anything to the ECU when you put on the turboback exhaust.

Don't forget to use either OEM exhaust gaskets or some higher quality ones. I heard from NASIOC that ERZ's gaskets aren't that great.

correct me if i am wrong, but isnt the only time you really need to reset the ECU (unplugging the negetive for like 10 minutes) is when you do stuff with intake.. not just air intake but like turbo inlet and stuff that, that is considered coming and not going (ie exhaust)

i am probably wrong with that but i know when i had my integra years back that when i got my intake i was told to reset the ecu so it can kinda recalibrate whats happening.

keep it in the dirt.

Yes that is a TBE in the link you have.
The downpipe you have linked is almost a exact replica of the Helix downpipe. I have owned both Helix and ERZ downpipes, but I perfer the Helix. Reguardless, for that price, it is a steal.
