Edge Juice Platinum w/Atitude

I currently have an Edge Programmer, and yes, yes I will be changing it out to an SCT.

But for the time being, is there any way to protect the tranny if I am gonna push up the level on the programmer, before.....?

Any info for the Edge would be greatly appreciated while I await SCT and Custom Tunes.

i would say your right foot is the only protection for your transmission that you have. that is with anything.

Actually, the Platinum (despite what most folks will say) has some level of transmission controls, and isn't nearly as tough on your tranny as the older Edge programmers...

I put 80k hard miles on my truck with it, although I hardly ever went over level 3. Just set your defuel setting to 0% -- and drive sensibly.

The reason the newer edge systems are better for the tranny if you want to call it that is less power. They offer a hot unlock with more power but you sign a waiver and pay more. Also I have read the hot unlock is still less power than original tuners though

That is only partly true.

The original had the following settings:
Level 0: Stock
Level 1: 40 hp & 80 ft-lbs of torque
Level 2: 60 hp & 100 ft-lbs of torque
Level 3: 80 hp & 160 ft-lbs of torque
Level 4: 100 hp & 250 ft-lbs of torque
Level 5: 115 hp & 290 ft-lbs of torque

The Platinum has these:
Level 0: Stock
Level 1: 25 hp & 50 ft-lbs of torque
Level 2: 40 hp & 80 ft-lbs of torque
Level 3: 60 hp & 120 ft-lbs of torque
Level 4: 80 hp & 160 ft-lbs of torque
Level 5: 100 hp & 200 ft-lbs of torque
HOT: 115 hp & 240 ft-lbs of torque

So in truth, the Platinum with the hot unlock gives you the same hp power levels plus another, lower power level the original did not have.

The actual difference is torque (which is the real transmission killer). As you can see from the numbers posted, the Platinum actually has 20 ft-lbs more torque in the 60hp setting than the original had but is 50 ft-lbs less in each of the 100hp and 115hp settings...


Your best bet is to stay out of anything higher than level 3 or 4 and set your defuel to 0. If you go up to level 5 or the hot unlock, the trans will not like you and eventually, you will not like it either....

I ran mine hard on 5 and sometimes 6. Think I had 60,000 k when I switched. never had a problem. I now have 120000+ and still no problem. The Platinum isn't bad. It was the original juice that was hard on tranny's.

I run my platinum edge on "hot" whenever I feel like it, but usually daily drive level 3... I've probably put 30k miles since got the edge, and have had the hot unlock for probably 10k miles and no problems at all...
