They are both running the N54, and the PROcede will arrive at the same peak boost for each.

Overboost doesn't do anything for a tuned 335iS. Not being anti-iS here, but it's a fact that a PROcede runs far higher boost than even the overboost function. So activating it wouldn't change power/torque at all.
Another one who doesn't read the posts! My discussion never brought up a tuned 'is' at any point. My point was stock 'is' against tuned N55 and not forgetting the overboost numbers when comparing the two. It keeps it alot closer. And yes, of course the overboost goes away when tuned.
