PERFORMANCE ENGINE SOFTWARE, LLC
BMW 335, 535 INSTALLATION MANUAL
Thank you for purchasing PES software. Please take the time to read all of the following instructions very carefully before proceeding to the next steps.
The PES computer has been designed to fit your car and work perfectly with no guesswork at all. We have found that most problems arise when the manual isn’t followed, or a careless mistake is made during installation. For this reason PES highly recommends the installation be performed by a PES install center or a qualified professional mechanic with diagnostic equipment.
Remember; we are here to support you and help with any questions you may have. Just call and ask! If you are installing the kit yourself and have a problem it may be impossible for PES to help diagnose the problem unless you have the proper diagnostic equipment.
Your OBDII system remains fully functional with this system.
The manual is written step by step from the average installer’s point of view. Most steps have a corresponding image number(s) in high resolution. Some of the simplest steps do not have an associated image.
The photos used in this manual were taken during the installation on a 2007 335 coupe.
1) Remove ignition key.
2) Open the hood. On the passenger side of the engine locate 2 solenoid turbo control valves. There is one to the front of the engine and one to the rear.
3) There is a rectangular “hood” covering a hose barb on each one. These must be removed. First disconnect the small vacuum hose just to the left of the hood on white portion of the valve. The best way to remove them is to grasp the cover with pliers and rotate/pull in a counter clockwise motion. This part has some internal plastic retainers which you may hear click during removal. This will expose a large black hose barb.
4) Replace the vacuum line you removed from the white hose barb.
5) Repeat step 3 & 4 on the other valve.
6) Remove 6 8mm bolts from cabin filter housing and remove.
7) Remove sensor on passenger side as shown. First push in button with small pick tool, then rotate upward. Remove from plastic housing, and unclip wire retainers. A similar sensor on the driver’s side will just need to be unclipped from the wire retainers.
8) There is a black cover on both the driver and passenger sides that must be removed. First peel back the rubber grommets. Next, unclip the box from the front and rear tabs and remove it. Repeat on the other side.
9) Unclip the harness cover by pulling towards the front of the car
10) Unclip the underlying harness by releasing the tabs with a small screwdriver and pulling towards the front of the car.
11) Remove the cover under the cabin filter housing by removing 2 8mm bolts. One on the passenger and one on the drivers side.
12) Next open the weather proof housing where the ECU is located. Note that there are 2 tabs with lock indicators. Slide the tabs to release. On the opposite sides there are clips which are released by prying outward on the underside.
13) Locate the large plug on the ECU
14) Pull the tab outward to release the plug from the ECU
15) Release the black section of the plug harness by releasing the tab.
16) Slide the black connector out of the plug.
17) Locate the numbers on the plug. On one end there is a (1) and on the other end there is number (22)
18) From the side marked (1) count inward to the #10 pin. It will be a solid yellow wire.
19) Using a pick tool press on the release tab of the pin and slide the wire out of the plug. The wire should easily be removed.
20) Insert the green wire from the PES box into the #10 slot where you just removed the yellow wire from.
21) Slide the black connector back into the plug. NOTE that there is an arrow on the black plug that should be pointing inward.
22) Re-connect the plug to the ECU by pushing in the tab which will draw the plug onto the ECU.
23) Slide the supplied heat shrink tubing onto the yellow wire.
24) Plug the male yellow wire from the PES box into the female yellow wire that was removed from slot #10. Heat the tubing with a hair dryer to shrink.
25) Run the black wire from the PES box around the main rubber wire harness and connect it to the ground on the inner wheel well inside the engine compartment.
26) Fish the longer hard vacuum line marked “F” through the front rubber harness into the ECU box.
27) Connect the side that has the rubber connector to the front solenoids black hose barb you exposed in step#3.
28) Attach one of the supplied hose connectors to the hard line and connect it to the PES box on the center hose barb marked “F”
29) Run the shorter hard line marked “R” from the rear solenoid hose barb through the harness and connect it to the PES box hose barb marked “R” in the same way you connected the front line. (NOTE: IT IS CRUCIAL THAT THE FRONT AND REAR VACUUM LINES ARE NOT MIXED UP. DO ONE AT A TIME TO PREVENT A MISMATCH)
30) Rest the box in an open area making sure that the vacuum lines are not kinked.
31) Neatly zip-tie the hard vacuum lines close to the valve cover. Do not make the zip ties tight where they could pinch the vacuum lines.
32) Now you can reinstall the ECU and engine covers in the reverse order they were removed.
33) Start the car and let idle for approx. 5 minutes, then, drive the car at normal load until the engine oil temp. reaches full operating temp. The factory BMW ECU will not allow full boost until the oil achieves operating temp. The PES computer retains that feature. The car can now be driven as you wish, enjoy!
USE ONLY SUPER UNLEADED FUEL (Minimum octane 91)
Race fuel (100+octane) should be used on track days.
We hope that you enjoy your new PES software. We greatly appreciate your business!
