Edge nozzles

would stage 3 nozzles be good for some stoplight racing and towing (but not much towing). i plan on stacking with a hypertech, not the best but thats what i got. so the just of this is, are stage 3 nozzle ok for just daily driving and whats the smoke level like on a scale of 1-10. or should i consider some thing else? i am not going for all out power cause i just dont need it, but i would like to bet some people from the stoplights:evil: . and this combo proably anit good enough to bet an 05 is it? sorry bout all the questions but any feed back would be great:bow: :

That depends on what the 05 has done to it. stock or limited mods sure it will beat it. 05 with some fueling mods then probably not. Have you done anything to your trans yet? and what do you mean by not much towing? Not towing a lot of weight or not towing often. If you aren't towing a lot of weight these nozzles should work fine. My friend ran them his truck combine with an edge comp and destroyed his trans in very short order. So if you still have a stock trans, don't expect it to last.

I really just have the edge juice with attitude, but i can still beat an 05 on level 3... and this isn't 100 horse additional. The 2nd gens have plenty of potential, they just start out lower stock than an 05 or 06

o yea and if you want to race off of a light, powerbrake it and build some boost before you take off, if you didn't already know, it makes a world of difference.

sorry my thread wasnt very easy to understand. the 05 is my dads and its totally stock. what i ment by not towing very much is that its a 16ft flatbed trail with fourwheelers, and maybe a 18ft cattle trailer once in a blue moon and its not more than 50 miles . ya i did know that you can boost and take off better i just didnt say it. soory about the confusion next time i will try to be more clear. any way thanx for the info. and the tranny is still stock, but that shouldnt take long . and yes i will have gauges (egt, fp, boost) before i do this. about that fuel pressure gauge i read that it cant be mounted inside the cab, is this right??

fuel pressure gauge can be mounted inside the cab, but you'll want to get either an electric gauge or you'll need an isolator. I had a leak on mine, outside and it dripped down the line and came in. I definitely wouldn't run fuel inside the cab though. But there are options so that you can mount your F/P in the cab.

The stage 3's are pretty good for just a little of everything, a buddy of mine had the edge stage 3's with an edge comp and level 4 and 5 it will blow some nice smoke, 1-10 probably like a 6 or 7, And towed his 5th wheel camper with them, and also ran 9.9 in the 1/8 mile with them.

Well if you have and auto you have the HY35, which is the same turbo my buddy has and he is running alot through it and it is holding up really well, for that small of a turbo but it does get hot pretty quick. But it should be fine for a little, and make sure you get gauges soon! That should be one of your first mods.

And the time he had was with the comp on i'm not sure if it was one level 4 or 5. But it was on. The 0-60 time i don't know off the top of my head, i'll ask him next time i see him or maybe he will chime in here (he is akapparos on here) And his time of 9.9 is OK (no offense Alex) if you think about it, it's probably about 16-18 in the 1/4 mile give or take a little.

Stage 3's will be no problem at all. Stage 4's will be fine as well. The weakest link you have is the tranny. It won't hold very well with mods. The stage 3's with the comp on level one was enough for my tranny to slip. It had 175,000 on it at the time. I would do a t/c and v/b before going above the stage 3's. You could maybe do the stage 4's with the hypertech because of the difference between it and an edge. Put in your gauges, turnbuckle the turbo, and keep an eye on your egt and you will be fine. I am putting in a set of stage 5's and I don't think I will have any problems towing. You just have to feather the right foot according to the terrain.
As far as racing goes, I was on 5x5 and 4x4 at the dragstrip and was turning in the same times more or less. I broke the tires loose on every run and had to stay light on the throttle the whole time because the tires came loose on every shift. With a 4wd your times would have been much better. You will definately kill the 05 with the nozzles and hypertech if the tranny will put it to the ground. GOOD LUCK!
