why are u trying to reset your ecu for? I also own an 04 si. The only time i really reset my ecu is for after installing a new part that effects the ecu. But if you were to do this i say at least for 10 minutes.

I went with stock, as i had a hard time finding a good aftermarket one for a comparable price to the stock one. Still undecided on my goals for my car and what id like to do next. I have drooled over yours many a time

you won't pass inspection if the ECU has just been reset. They'll hook up the computer to check it and they'll tell you you have to drive around more first.

Depends on the inspectors attitude. He/she may not care. I'd say you're probably fine then since you've already driven 75 miles.

well seeing that are putting back on a stock cat it really shouldn't matter about resseting the ecu then.
