Custom 335i Tuning in Florida

For those of us in the Sunshine State who are already looking at adding more power to their 335s, you probably have been following Vishnu Tuning's thread on their Xede device. The link to the thread is worth your time if you have not yet seen it. In short, Vishnu tuning has successfully developed a software upgrade that has the 335 developing over 335 bhp [i]at the wheels![i]0-60 in 4.2sec, 0-100 in under 10sec. Vishnu Tuning is well respected in the Evo and WRX turbo tuning fields and their developer-Shiv-is extremely knowledgable and highly respected in the tuning community.

If you are interested in the Xede then the optimal setup involves a few hours worth of custom tuning on a dyno after the installation of the unit. Vishnu Tuning is located in Northern California and, since most of us would rather not drive there, Shiv will perform local installations and custom tunes if there are 5 or more cars to be completed in the same place on the same trip.

Check out the thread and send me a PM if you want to get on board. I am in contact with others who are interested and Shiv as well. We are looking at mid-December as a target date.

We will see, depending on interest, when we bring Shiv down for the custom tunes.

BTW, the actual power output should read "335 rwhp" not "335 bhp" since the numbers were achieved on a chassis dynomometer...

As of now we have enough interest for a mid-December group to get installed and custom tuned but we can put another group together for January or February, most likely. The specifics are subject to change after 01/01/07 but for December figure $1500 for the modification. For those who are interested, Vishnu will also be offering an exhaust for the Xede-tuned 335 that is being developed specifically for this modification and can be added after it goes from it's current prototype stage to production-ready. Pricing TBA for this mod.

We have surpassed the requisite five but I am keeping the roster open until Dec 10th since there may be some later deliveries. Just PM me if you have an interest in making this modification. The install days will be 12/16-12/18 so people still have time...

Also, I plan on trying to get some (at least semi-) scientific testing done on at least my own vehicle after this mod and will be posting the results here. This will include the benchmark 0-60, 0-100, and 1/4 mile times. These will be performed at Moroso, most likely. Any other suggestions? Let me know...

any chance of vishnu franchising this tuning procedure and software in florida? Even if I had my 335 in time, I'm in Jacksonville. Yeah Miami is closer than Cali but its still waaay too far for me to take time away for an upgrade.

Interesting thought...I have wondered the same myself...

In other threads you will see that Vishnu has committed to the development and distribution of a direct-order Xede that can be installed by the owner or a local shop, if you so desire. The website is http://www.vishnutuning.com

Check it out.

Absolutely.

Go to http://www.vishnutuning.com

There you will find a mail order option. Keep in mind that the Xede unit must be custom tuned to your car, using a dynomometer, in order to get the most possible gains. However, the Xede standard program should still be good for 40+ whp, depending on fuel octane.

To clarify, you can order the Xede from Vishnu Tuning and install it yourself, if you are so inclined

It's coming through from Braman BMW, it was purchased through the military discount program. I went to that one BMW dealership off of I-75 and Sheridan and thought they were a bunch of pricks. Vin I'm going to PM you to ask you some questions.
