...you have to unhook the negative cable on your battery for about 15 minutes....hook it back up. Key in...let the needles do their swap and then start up the car. After that the computer is gonna learn how you drive for awhile. Try some slow and WOT runs.

As far as the noise.....might be suspension related.

since the popping only happens when you break, i would guess it is a problem with your brakes or suspension, but i am no expert. you might be able to get more help in the suspension forum.

as for reseting the ECU: take Super V's advice.
