You can do the same thing for your "butt dyno." Just make sure the oil temp is about 180. The tune only becomes active when the car is warmed up, no matter what map you are in.
I've been thinking the same thing, I'm going to test the following combinations on the same day and dyno: Stock tune and exhaust, Stock tune/gintani catless x pipe, procede/catless, procede + meth/catless. I really like that..

Any ideas where to tuck the Procede away if you have a DCT and NAV car? I'm assuming that's why all my slots in the ECU box have been taken up.

Attached picture for reference.

Thanks for your input...I'd appreciate it if those with other tunes would refrain from suggesting that I should have just gotten a flash.

Shiv just told me there's enough room if I just lay it on top of the slots so I guess I'll give that a try and it that doesn't work I'll try moving the relays.

Hopefully you got it installed. What does your butt dyno say in terms of performance? Does the car feel faster through the entire RPM band?

10-15 whp? Would the dealer be able to detect this, or do you simply unplug and you are in the clear? Is this more dangerous than other tunes? What about the tune settings, are they preloaded? Or do you have to custom tune it? I wish Vishnu would chime in, as I'd buy a non meth kit today if all my questions were answered.

Rekrul, all the answers you want can be find by simply reading the other thread on the Procede. Ive seen the answers myself so it can't be too hard.
But basically the answers to your questions are No, just unplug it. No, Yes, No.

Ok thanks my man! Why on earth isn't there more buzz around this? Seems like a better option that flash tunes!

I'm curious too, it seems like a good option from an experienced tuner, albeit not with m3s. Even so, I ordered one with a meth kit. I don't really like the idea of fitting it since I have dct and nav as well, but whatever.

My last car had a flash tune, it was Dinan and very conservative with hfc. I'm glad to hear there should be a significant difference. I decided to spice things up a little by going catless/vishnu meth because a SC currently isn't practical for my budget, I just hope the M3 crowd isn't too far on the back burner.. we are a small community and I have yet to receive mine. I'm not complaining, just saying that I hope we're being taken seriously. Their customer service rep. was friendly and assured me they didn't forget about us. He said they are just making final tweaks to make sure it's right. Thats perfectly fine with me, just a bit disheartening that I ordered a bit under 2 months ago and their web site says the approx. lead time is 1-2 weeks

I also hope Shiv doesn't take too long to program delimiter software, he assured me when I ordered that it would be done within a short time period. All in all, I still can't wait to slap this on my car and see what everyone is talking about, and more importantly, what my vbox says.

What if you didn't want to use meth? Do you have to splice and wires etc? I mean will there be a trace of this piggyback if you took it to a dealer?

Even with meth, if I remove the proceed and meth it's 100% reversible to stock.
