I thought T35 only exclude a large majority of factors below 35 digits so that it makes more sense to search for factors with 3540 digits? Someone knows more about ECM can correct me.

If a bit level has been TF'ed, then if a factor is in that level, the probability of discovering that factor would be 100%.
