How hard is it to install the PROcede? The PWM Meth kit?
Any novice can install the PROcede or PWM Meth kit. The PROcede alone takes 10-15 minutes to install and only requires a 8mm ratchet. The PWM Meth kit will take a novice 1-2 hours to install. Both can be uninstalled as quickly/easily when/if needed.
If I already have a flash tune, do I need to flash my DME back to stock?
The Procede alone will perform as well, or better, than a properly tuned DME flash tune. As such, there is no need to retain your previous flash tune when installing a PROcede. However, if your flash tune is properly calibrated, you can simply install the PROcede "on top" of it. We do not recommend using the PROcede to fix a problem with your underlying tune.
If I run exclusively on 100oct, will I see power gains from PROcede/PWM Meth combo?
Yes. While running 100oct race fuel will render the octane bump afforded by methanol redundant, it does not offer charge cooling effects. The reduction of inlet air temps will provide a healthy power pump on its own. However, running race gas is completely unnecessary (and a waste of money) when equipped with a PWM meth kit.
Will the PROcede alone provide the same gains as a DME flash?
The PROcede will provide similar, or better, gains that a DME flash tune. Even with a standard "off-the-shelf" map. And through optional custom-tuning, even more power can be realized.
Does it cost anything to get new/additional map files?
No. Additional maps and software updates are completely free.
Low long will a full tank last before I need a refill?
Methanol consumption will depending on how the car is driven. Since methanol is only metered under moderate to full load, casual driving will not consume any methanol. Normal semi-aggressive street driving may consume a tank of meth every two fuel fill-ups. Very aggressive street driving may consume a tank of meth every fuel fill-up.
How much does it cost to fill the meth tank up?
Most race fuel stores will sell methanol for just $3/gallon. If methanol is not readily available to you, denatured alcohol (sourced for any hardware store) can be used.
Do I run pure methanol or do I mix it with water?
We recommend running a 70/30 mix of methanol/distilled water. A 50/50 mixture can be used but it will not result in maximum power gains.
When the methanol bottle runs dry, what do I need to do with respect to the tune?
Absolutely nothing. The Procede will automatically adjust mapping when methanol runs dry. It will not run the aggressive timing/fuel settings. There is no need to change maps/settings.
How do I know when the methanol bottle is running low?
You will see a low windshield washer fluid alert on your dash. And even then, you will still have a good amount of methanol left over.
Can i turn off the methanol system and/or PROcede tune when I don't when them active?
Yes. By using the cruise control stalk, you can toggle through different modes to disable the PWM Meth system and/or PROcede. You can do this while you are driving.
How do I read/clear diagnostic codes?
All diagnostic functions can be executed through the Vishnu Command Center which users can easily navigate through using the cruise control stalk.
How do I "hijack" the factory fuel level and oil temp gauges to display useful tuning data (airflow, AFR, Ign Advance, IAT)?
The user can toggle through different display options by double-clicking on the hazard button. Or by selecting defaults display modes through the Vishnu Command Center.
How do I install the methanol nozzles into my air filter (stock or aftermarket)?
Simply drill a hole in the top off your air filter and push in the supplied threaded nozzles. For a reasonable cost, we can also supply a factory-replacement air filter, pre-drilled with the nozzles already installed.
