I'd recommend it because of what it can do on fuel mileage. As JPonder* said, "The ETH's are just beasts when it comes to fuel mileage"

edge comp is a great one, but as phily said, once you break thorugh about 65 hore over stock you'll hit kind of a dead end
Wat?

More like 300 horse over stock is the wall.

yeah, i agree with mkoth. they will take power adders just fine. as far a fuel economy, mine isnt any better than the SO. but the extra gear really helps when pullin heavy loads up long steep grades.

He means what I wrote when I was "sack riding" from Edge. Edge said going over 65hp the gains start to demish as compared to a ETC/SO engine.

I agree, the gains do start to demish along with my brain cells after reading your posts, "Hook ed on Pha honics work ed fo me."

Well, once again, you are incorrect with your speculations.

Edge deals strictly with electronics...and they honestly don't do that too well anymore.

Hell, my piece of junk made 160 horse over stock with junk injectors, a Van Aaken, and a 5" exhaust. Guess there were no diminishing returns there, huh?

If you ever want to put on your big boy pants, and actually attempt to know the things you talk about, stop talking on the phone, and actually make your own observations.

And quit saying, ETH and ETC. Using build codes doesn't make you look any smarter.

Matt threw the dictionary comment at you, not me. Here is your chance, proof read 2 or 300 times and try, I mean really try this time to post something that actually has some factual information in it, I'm all ears...

I was just quoting what Edge said.
I never even claimed it be correct just because they said it.
I just said, that's what they said. But if you want to take as that. Knock yourself out.

As far as the engine codes go. I just find it easier because if you use HO and SO they can be mistakin for words alot easier than ETH and ETC.
