Procede's now rockin- thanks Shiv!

Today the Procede arrived so of course I had to install it RIGHT that minute!

After a little wiring trouble , shes up and running like a champ. Thanks Shiv for answering my questions and walking me through everything. A+ customer support.

Im not going to bore you all with details since we've all heard it before. I do happen to think some folks over exagerate the effects of this thing hahah. Simply put, its no rocket ship, but definately pulls nicely.

Why does that make a difference? I thought it (procede) was invisible to the ECU.

I'm not trying to start anything, I'm just curious as what is going on here.

Make sure the car's warmed up too... Get the oil temp up. Drive it a couple days. Then report back.

Try "unplugging" the PROcede (without taking it out...ask Shiv) and do a couple runs; then, plug it back in for a couple more runs...~ +55+ WHP and ~ + 90+ lb.-ft. RWTQ...HUGE difference!

Yeah man, get the temp to about 210 or 240, put it in sport mode and activate DTC--f'in rocket ship. Punch it from almost any speed and it accelerates like a super car.

That may have come out wrong. Its certainly faster, its just not a "rocket ship" as some have said. I was trying to be funny.

I did only get to take 2 runs cause the wife was in the car. Let me report back after a few days of driving it around.

To clarify, overall its a great mod, and wonderul bang for the buck!!!

Congrats on your procede.

When I read all of these procede reviews I always wonder what the person was driving before the 335 when they call it a rocket ship. Since you had an M3 I can understand where your coming from.

How can you possibly understand when, according to your sig, you don't even have a 335i or m3? LOL.

Well believe it or not, there's a car or two that are faster than a PROcede 335i . He has/had a pretty modded S2k from what I've heard.

I can understand because I have an E92 335 on order for the past three months and I have test driven it and in stock form it doesn't feel fast at all unlike the 10,000 posts a day I read on here about how it feels like a rocket in stock form. My cousin had an M3 and I drove it a few times (and also raced it a few times) and that also felt on the slow side compared to my last car so when someone with an M3 says that a procede 335 feels quick, but not a rocket ship I can take that as a much more accurate statement then everyone else who just says "OMG my Procede 335i is INSANELY fast, I can race Nasa space shuttles now" . All I was saying was that he had a quick car before so its not like someone else that came from a 325 and thinks that the 335 is fast to begin with. Do I meet your qualifications now for posting without having my cars in my signature?

You might be bleeding boost. looking at your sig, it looks like you have a blow off valve. I would take your car to a dyno to confirm the power gains, Walkedu started a thread on this. I am no blow off valve guru, but it apeared as if his was causing him to lose power. just a suggestion?

You got it RiXst3r... I have a 6MT.

anidjare, its probobly fine. The car is quick as balls, but its just no super car, but I certainly didnt expect it to be. Also, wasnt the boost isue with the DYI blow-off valve? Maybe I am confusing threads.

The car will get dyno'd eventually. I tend to procrastinate with this car, which isnt good. Shoot, it hasnt even had an alignment yet after lowering it. Gotta do that too.

The install was cake...the only hard part was taking off the microfilter cover and ECU cover...if u dont do it right u can snap the black pieces on the side...

I am willing to bet i can install it faster than Shiv's mom..
