Shiv,

I just tried out the new maps/firmware.

This is what I was hoping for. The boost 'hits' very quickly now and makes the car a lot more fun to drive.

Thank you!

Good to hear. Pretty easy change. We just rescaled the throttle response adjustment range and made some minor supplementary changes. It's funny how subjective things are getting at this point. Some will want max response. Some like it more relaxed. Hence the idea of it being fully user adjustable Keep everyone satisfied.

Nice, can't wait to try out the map once i get home.

Shiv quick question for ya... I'm getting a FMIC installed today and was wondering if I can up the user torque on stage 1? I just have DCI installed at the moment and will be adding downpipes once VK finishes production. But with DCI and FMIC, can I run stage 2 or somewhere in between?

Agreed. The car probably isn't any faster, it just 'feels better' to me.

But Hey! that's why we're driving these cars instead of Camrys or the Toyota 'Pious'...driving as a fun experience versus chore/utility.

I have catless DPs and DCI...run Stage II w/UT set to 75%.

It feels a LOT stronger than the Stage 1 maps.

Since I'm also on CA faux 91 octane, that might work for you too.

I will try full Stage II once I get an upgraded FMIC.

Well, it's definitely faster since it recovers boost between gears so much quicker. And it also comes closer to hitting the boost target in the lower gears where as before the engine would tend to outrun the turbo and not see full boost. So you aren't imagining things

Try running both Stg1 and Stg2 and see what works best for you

The auto-tune feature would eleiminate this guess work, and those with ADD on here would rest easy knowing their car is doing the best it can with the PROCede instead of them wondering constantly if they are running the max-performance they can run and keep switching back and forth but always in doubt. Any ETA on that?

Excellent! Going to load maps now so I can drive on them tomorrow morning. Looking forward to the new reader software and documentation.

FWIW, the documentation is already up (although not 100% done)

Yes, using all that juicy high-speed data extracted from the CANbus network, the PROcede will automatically dial-in User torque% and ignition correction% to suit your mods/conditions. Basically, a free custom tune for everyone

Small steps...

Yep. I'm interested in the "coming soon" additions.

Also interested in the meth hardware, auto tuning, etc. Great work.

Questions Shiv; If I'm already running the stage 3 beta 5-22 map; Would it make a difference if I run the 5-29 stage 3 map and firmware 115?

Shiv,
I presume it was intentional setting the Stage 1 maps with a default UT of 75% (vs 70%)? So far, this map does seem smoother than the 5-08 beta map. But, I haven't been able to jump on it because it's raining here in So Cal...
