Pack it back in the box and send it back for a refund.

If you actually bought the Edge EZ and didn't get it for free, you just wasted money. It's nothing more than an ICP fooler. For less than $3 at Radio Shack, you can do the exact same thing yourself, and it's just as easy as installing the Edge EZ.

The EZ is just a resistor mod that tricks the PCM into thinking the pressure at the oil rails is too low. As a result, the PCM commands higher oil pressure from the HPOP to compensate. A simple resistor inline to the ICP sensor does the exact same thing. In fact, the EZ plugs into the ICP sensor too. This is why I say send it back for a refund. Edge charges way to much money for this simple mod.

Actually it's not really that good of an idea. It only gives you very minor power gains, and does not address fueling, timing, transmission adjustments, etc. A chip is a better way to go, since it can control all of those parameters, giving you much more power, while still keeping the truck very well mannered on the street.

I tried an ICP fooler back years ago on my truck. It was fun for about a day, and that was it. Wasn't really even worth my time compared to what I gained by putting a chip in.

There are instructions for an ICP fooler floating around here somewhere. Do a search for "10K mod".

Return the Edge for a refund and forget the fooler. Get a chip instead. In your other thread someone suggested DP-Tuner. That's one really good option (I also run DP-Tuner in my truck). Another popular choice here is Total Diesel Performance.

Hate to burst your bubble, but your Powerstroke isn't going to smoke like a Cummins will (even when its tuned)... Unless you have a really, really, really dirty air filter.

fuel injector system. The powerstroke uses the HUEI weheras thee common rail use high fuel pressure to run the injectors. The Injectors are smaller compared to cummins, duramax's. IIRC like 90cc but it smokes with Jody's tunes but F the Edge ANYTHING!!!!
