Just installed new Edge Juice Platinum.

I just installed the edge platinum I got from my wife (my hero) over the holidays. Things I observed on my otherwise 100% stock 03.

1. EGT's seem good (probe on rear drivers exhaust manifold) considering no exhaust or intake.(speed on flat steady state road 10 x speed so 70 mph = 700 - 750)

2. Transmission shifts are flawless with more control features than you can figure out in a week. I also have a modified Lightning and can appreciate a good tranny tune.

3. Boost seems low compared to other tuners (max I've seen is 23 psi registered on attitude monitor). I am at 3000ft elevation and test was done on flat road and empty truck. After checking other inputs online, this seems normal for the platinum. Maybe to combat the puking issue which mine has never done it's whole 40,000 miles.

4. Tire smoke is not instant but I didn't expect to light them up from a dead stop with no other mods. I thought the lag would have been helped more. It will turn them both into 2nd after 1500 rpm but not enough to cause clouds of smoke. I think the exhaust will help with the lag. Looking for any inputs...

5. Exhaust smoke seems no more than stock from what I've seen from the drivers seat.

6. User interface is flawless. I have the attitude monitor mounted in new pod above the mirror. Installation was easy (attitude monitor was more than long enough to reach above mirror). Level changes do seem to happen instantly by observing load% and egt's. When heading up a very long hill I noticed if I bumped up the program level, the load % would go lower, but the egt would rise. To me this says the engine is working easier with a higher heat output.

7. Turbo timer is a good addition also. I have mine set at 350, and it can take a minute or so to shutoff.

Overall, I am very happy. I am sure there is more power that can be added ( I see no need to contact edge for the Hot program code you can get for a 6th level) but added safely is another question. To me, Edge learned from their first Juice release, listened to all inputs, and made one hell of a total package performance system

"It will turn them both into 2nd after 1500 rpm but not enough to cause clouds of smoke." If you are looking for the coulds I know a guy that could help ya out. His name starts with a E, and he is pretty innovative with these diesels.:93C_peelo :Thumbup:

I like it! Did the mount come painted, or did you paint it....

I had the attutude in the same place on my chevy. Very nice out of the way spot, but easliy readable without taking your eyes off the road long!

Thanks!

I painted it myself with Dupli-Color gray plastic paint. Color matches dark part of dash, not lighter part of overhead. Not what I was expecting, but the two tone matches the dash two tone.
