2000 F-550 with evolution?

i just got a new truck at work...its a 2000 F-550 with the 7.3, anyways...its freakin slow, one of my buddy's has an edge evolution that he said i could hook up. my question is..if i ran it on the 60hp tune would i hurt the tranny or have to worry about egt's? or anything else? last thing i wanna do is hurt it...
Thanks

It's slow because it weighs almost 10K empty

I would avoid the evolution at least until you know some service life on the truck.

I'm not a fan of the off-the-shelf tunes from big corporations, so I would advise you to consider another tuning source.

It probably doesn't have the gears for a lot of top-end speed either...

I have an Edge Evolution. I know it's not very popular on this site, but I like it. It's pretty easy to hook up and it has electronic gauges so you can monitor various temps (tranny, egt's, etc..). I run it on the middle setting, 80HP 140TQ, and I havent noticed any issues. Temps are good, truck shifts great, etc...

Just my 2 cents.

Just get ya some gauges and a good custom tuned chip and drive it. It will be money well spent and will pick it up a little.

Why would you put money into a truck that's not even yours? Its a company truck.

Gearing.

It might not go fast @ highway speeds, but I'll bet it would pull your house all the way up to that speed.

It might take it an hour to get there . . .

So the boss will pay for 1/2 the tuning. Do you haul/tow with it?

How fast do you expect it to go?
