HyperTech or Edge Juice w/attitude????

Which one is better? My buddy is running a Hypertech in his 04.5 GMC. He insists Hypertech is better. You pay more money for the edge juice w/attitude because of the monitor. So, I would like some input on this one.
Thanks

Thank you, I was pretty much feeling the same way. Still interested in other responses though.

I would have to agree 100% with the above post!:Thumbup:

The Juice/Attitude is a great combination, also looking into getting the overhead mount for the Attitude. It gives it a very clean looking mount, let me know if you would like any pictures of it.

Depends on the truck I think. If you have an LB7 (01-04) engine, the edge is hands down the most popular tuner for them...If I owned a truck and someone else was driving it, a hypertech is what I would buy. The edge has protection built into it, but it can only do so much.
Now, for the LLY (early lly that is 04.5-05), the edge doens't have such a stellar history. There have been many reports of units that didn't work correctly on these engines. (That issue may be fixed by now, I'm not sure)
Personally, I like the predator for the LLY....excellent price point, decent power, and diagnostics too..:Thumbup:

LB7 Edge sure had its problems also, four boxes later knock on wood everything is working great.

I want to get the Preditor of the code reading and to remove the speed limiter!

I think I will pick up both, the predator and edge, and see which one works best for my needs. And see either of the two after testing is complete. Thanks for the info

The mod bug has officially bitten this person! The Edge is a great harness box...if you get the Attitude, you have your gauges. The Predator is a very good downloader, and you can see and reset codes, change tire size and remove the speed limiter with it. Both excellent choices.













































:evil: Should we tell him that he can also stack those two units? I see a trans upgrade coming.... :Thumbup:

I am intersested in getting a Predator.

But what is with all these boxes that need to be unlocked. When we totalled our F250 we got uninstalled our Hypertech at the salvage yard without any problems. Turned around and soldit on Ebay.

Are the Predeators and Hypertechs that much different that they need to be sent out for reprograming? Not trying to be a wise ***** just noticed this since I have been looking for a used one.

Thanks
