Back to back or turn off key between proceedures?

Not sure. I should have copied and pasted it into a file, but I didn't. If I run across it again I'll post it up.

Found these:

With the vehicle at a complete stop, set the parking brake.
Put the gearshift in neutral, turn off all accessories.
Turn on car without starting the engine.
Wait till the dash lights stabilize (some of them will turn off)
Step on the gas pedal in one smooth and steady motion
Once gas pedal hits the bottom, let go.
Turn off car and wait 4-5 seconds.
Turn on the engine.

Recalibrating the gas pedal and throttle body:
1- Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine(dashboard lights come on and chime sounds).
2- After the chime stops, smoothly depress the gas pedal to the floor while counting 1001-1002-1003.
3- Release the gas pedal using the same procedure in 2.
4- Wait 6 seconds, and turn the ignition to OFF.
5- Wait 6 sec., and repeat steps 1-4 two more times.
You can here ticking when you do it and then the engine light blinks when your done.

Oddly in both forums people reported a benefit.
