3. Fuel pump problems (my pump got replaced with a pump that i think might go out again!)
4. Waiting to see if anyone's cars blow up

3. The fuel pump problem is not related to the PROcede, it's a random problem.
4. I am fine with the current experience.

Stop waiting, enjoy what's available. I always can wait for something better or cheaper. I will end up in beeing frustrated and having nothing. Enjoy life !
1. Shiv stated several times that he was waiting on pins and connectors for the harness to come in from out of country... how readily availible are the parts needed to make these wires?
2. Your wireless access requires a laptop to switch to a stock map, i want a switch
3. I know its a random problem, which is why i dont trust this car enough right now to spend too much time/money doing warranty voiding modifications.
4. I agree, the PROcede has proven itself to be safe

Trust me, I really want to buy a PROcede, and start "enjoying life" as you put it... but the above issues are just barely enough to keep me from hitting that order button, and they are not all Vishnu's fault either.

Heres a thread from EvolutionM.net, it shows the process of adding an additional wire to the wiring harness of an Xede. I'm sure the process is similar for a Procede since the connectors on both products are the same?

Ok.

Let's be honest. Shiv develops a very good software tuning solution and utilizes his ECU computer. It is visible now, that the XEDE needs a hardware upgrade to follow up. Wait for the right thing.

Cheers
