Hey, i am pretty much a beginner with car electrics. i heard from a few mates that if you un-hook the battery for a day that it resets the computer and apparently "gives you more power" as my mates have said, i was wondering if they were bull sh*tting or telling the truth..

Actually disconnecting the battery for about 10 seconds is all you need. And you dont even need to go to that much trouble, you can just pull out the 20A engine fuse near the battery for 10 seconds. Will do the same thing.
