You will not believe how well the 335 drives. It filters out the crap, but allows the good sensations to reach your brain. It is quiet and smooth, but thrilling. The big problem is how easily high speeds are obtained -- going 90 in a 335 feels like 45 in a honda civic. It is an autobahn burner supreme. It is made to cruise in relaxed fashion at 140+. No fuss, stuff just goes by the window fast.

Stress...you are going from a 323 to a 335...you will truly be able to appreciate it!!! What a huge leap in performance...almost 70% increase for you in HP/torque!!! Cool!

I was so close to getting a ZHP when they first came out. The only thing that stopped me was my wife cancelling a business trip to Budapest, an excuse for me to go ED!

But yes, it is a big jump. The biggest difference that I notice is how smooth the 335 is. Stealth speed. My 323 lets me know loud and clear when I am pushing it; the 335 is turbine-smooth & quiet, no fuss. Very dangerous if the law is out looking...

If the dyno guys are right about the conservative #s for the 335, I am going from 171 bhp to close to 320, almost a 100% jump.
