Run your Edge on Level 3 and set the EGT limiter at about 1100, and she will run very good. Just bump it up to Level 5 for some fun.

sounds like you have an evolution, when you said a system i think most people assumed you were talking about the juice w/ attitude controller that allows you to switch programs on the fly and monitor boost, egt, and rpms. on the evo your best fuel mileage setting should be your tow setting.

what do you mean it has no trany programming???? that might be the reason why my transmission shifts a little hard... ( suncoast trans )

definitely could be a big part of it, but if you have a suncoast it's probably just the valve body causing it to shift hard alot like a shift kit in a muscle car etc. My trans. shifts hard but it's because i have my predator raising the line pressure so it shifts harder.

Does it feel like the tranny is slipping between shifts or is it more like a quick hard shift?

then it sounds like your tranny is just set up to shift hard, with the evo on a stock tranny it shifts kinda slow and bogs a bit between shifts that why i'm getting rid of the evo on my mom's excursion soon.

I'm gonna put my diablosport predator in there and get a chip from dp-tuner for my truck. I like my predator i just wanna be able to change settings on the fly. Instead of having to reprogram my truck to change power settings.
