Procede Install & Impressions

Took me about an hour. I broke a clip on the air temp sensor but it still closes. I also dropped the 8mm ratchet head somewhere.

On right hand drive cars, the ground cannot be attached at the location the video suggests as that's on the other side of the car. I attached mine to the nut on the hood shock mechanism as it's right there by the ECU. ALso there seems to be another air temp sensor on the other side of the car that I don't recall seeing in the video.

After that the car started & idled fine. No issues. No faults. Feels much more vigorous than stock with a pronounced THUMP on boost. Doesn't quiet feel like "warp speed" like some of the videos say, but I rate that's due to the smooth mapping.

Oil temps are roughly the same as stock & so far even the gas mileage doens't seem to have changed much.

But the torque in the upper gears is something else. So effortless & yet thunderous. By far a worthwile mod with almost no downsides. I went to a dyno & aldo had no issues, excpet when I went to a loading dyno which threw up the half-engine light, & the car went into limp mode. But then again the guy was loading the car on the dyno & holding it there. After switching off & on it was gone.

So yeah, Procede is an awesome mod & I'm very satisfied with the results so far. Keep up the good work Shiv & thanks for all the help.

Hey man, where do you get gas? On post or on the economy?

By the way, how does it feel?
