Smarty vs. Comp

smarty over the edge comp. I have posted a thread on the smarty now im torn bewteen the smarty and edge comp, ive had a EZ with 100 horse injectors and loved it. Im wanting something that had some more kick to go with the sticks, i heard of the smarty with its low end kick and the comp with its good power band. i want to know which would be better to have. i do pull a trailer @12-15k sometimes to the mountains. trans has already been built. ive read the smarty dies off after 2k with its power. so help me out yall

Well the Smarty adds so much bottom end it feels like it is adding 120hp like the comp does. But it won't show up that way on the dyno. In reality the Smarty only adds about 65hp. The Comp is 120, and is adjustable on the fly. So for an all around good box I say go for the Comp. And maybe later in the future you can stack the Comp with the Smarty. The top end of the Comp along with the Bottom end of the Smarty, I have heard is a killer combo.

Are you looking for Tranny Upgrades??? You may not want to get a comp b/c w/o upgrading that tranny you wouldnt be smart to put it past much more power then a smarty will do..and yes the comp is adjustable on the fly, BUT you may find yourself changing you levels all the time and wear it down...for just simple HP id go with SMARTY and it reads codes that helps quite a bit...

i say the comp but make it a drag comp. i had a drag comp on my stacked with a smarty on level 8. runs unbeliveable an it spools up real fast even with a big turbo but when it was dyno it made 70hp less then just running the drag comp by it self. the smarty takes fuels hard on the bottom end and kills you on the top end. the smarty didnt really help my mpg. it all in what you want to do with your truck:agreed:

now own 2007 5.9 6 speed afe stage 2, ppe programmer, 5inch silverline turbo back

traded it in 01 dodge, dual disc, drag comp, head o ringed and studed, stock turbo
