edge

I am thinking of getting an edge programer but I don't know what one I want. Some people that I work with have edge stuff and they love it. What are some of the better ones. I would like to get something that will give me some good proformance But I drive like 100 miles a day to and from work so if I can I would like to get the best MPG a I can. I just would like some advice on what are the best for the money.

Thanks Torre

The comp box is good, if you have gauges, the juice is the same programming if you don't have gauges it includes it. If you get the comp box, thinking about getting the drag update when you get it so you don't have to ship it back later. The juice just has a hot unlock code that you can get. Either one has the option of turning the fuel down and doesn't always give higher fuel. I personally run the drag comp because I like the look of analog gauges. If you have an automatic Any fueling box will require trans mods to make it hold the added power.

but if your getting a box for pure mileage try the mileage max. If you want the adjustability to go from mileage to making some power then a comp or juice is great. from my experience just go with one for adjustability because you always want more

01 quad cab 4x4, edge drag comp, 4" exhaust, fass 150, 250 ddps, Jefferson State compounds 683hp so vp 11.91. AMSOIL front to rear. now back to stock 95 fummins in the works

It depends on how fresh your trans is, and how much power you want to hold. If you're just going to leave it at having a fueling box, a good torque converter and valvebody will make all the difference in the world. Those will actually put the power to the ground, and keep your trans from killing itself. If you want to race or do anything of that nature, or run big injectors etc... you will need more upgrades. My stock trans lasted 50k with the the edge drag comp and small injectors though, it really depends on how you drive it, and what shape it was in to start with.

A guy that I work with told me that if you get the attitude you lose like 40 horse power compared to just having your own gages. Has anyone else heard that? He does have a power stroke, but I just wanted to know if anyone else had heard that.

If I don't do those upgrades on my transmission how bad is it for the truck? What I am after is just some good power when I need or want it and trying to get some better MPG. At this point I am not going to do any racing, sled pulling or anything like that. I just want to know if that is something that I need to do if I am not going to be doing any of the above. My truck is an 02 with just about 57000 miles on the original transmission.

thats pretty funny about the power loss. it's supposed to be just like the comp box only it has the abilty to add the attitude monitor for all the parameters. I run the juice and I like it. You can get the edge box either one and don't really run it above the 3rd setting and it should be fine for quite a while. Just get a deep pan for it and keep the fluids up to snuff and it will last. you can run it up higher now and then so you can show the guy at work how the attitude runs. from what I was told 80 hp above stock is all the the auto can take.

i agree totally with 01quadcab the worse thing on the tranny is heat and it destories the fluid deep pan keeps more fluid and makes the tranny run cooler i thought i heard u can 100hp over stock and tranny should be just fine but if u have the pan off u could always do a shift kit or valve body if u wanted to
