Profec / EVC / VPC Question

Going back to my old turbo cars for a minute. I had the HKS EVC and Greddy Profec on a few of my cars. Is anyone going to be installing any of these on their 135i series? I understand many of us will go with the Procede as I myself plan to, I was just curious to see if anyone was going to go with a VPC or Profec in order to control the boost a bit better. High / low settings, overboost control, etc. Any thoughts?

'better' is subjective terminology at this point. It has yet to be determined whether aftermarket boost control is more efficient than stock. Not knowing enough about the stock setup is where i go silent.....

Perhaps "better" was not a good word to use. I meant better as in the ability to control and change boost on the fly. As far as I know this is not possible with the current set ups out for the 335i. EVCs and Profecs have low / high boost settings and peak hold boost / overboost settings that one can manipulate on the fly.
