What Level Can I Safely Use?

Finished the install on the Edge Juice w/Attitude last night. What an excellent setup. The buds and I went out for a ride last night after we installed it and it was a blast!!! I kept it at level 3 for the fear of breaking something, SO, looking for some honest, Good advice on what I can and CAN'T do. I have heard level 4 is ok, and then that is countered by only level 3 is ok. Stock tranny as for now. Not pulling anything heavy everyday. The max weight being pulled right now is around 1,500 lbs and that is not every day. It varies. So, a little clarification, level 3 or level 4 when not pulling anything??? :shrug:

Thanks much

It just depends.....you can run level 5 empty, but you might put your trans in limp mode. I normally ran 3 when empty just because it is a nice middle of the road tune, you have enough there but not too much, and if you gotta smoke someone just jack it up to 5 quick.
