I wouldn't put a edge tuning product if they paid me to do it. I would do ficm tuning or get a sct tuner personally

I had the edge juice with attitude on my 04' and was
not impressed. It never did work right, finally sent it back
to edge they reworked it sent it back and I still wasnt
impressed so I sold it. I going SCT next, just my 2 cents.

I haven't had any problems with my Edge (knocking on wood) but it really depends on what add ons you are going to do. If you are staying mostly bolt on w/o any major internal work, an Edge would be fine. However, when you start doing heads, cam, turbo, etc. the Edge won't reflash the truck, it will only add the extra HP and TQ based on a stock/bolt-on pre made up sort of deal. The SCT actually reflashes your truck based on the mods YOU HAVE INSTALLED. Much more customizable to whatever you can throw at it.

I didn't know this when I bought the Edge, and I plan on doing some engine mods, so I'm going to sell the system and replace it with the Edge Insight for parameter readings, and reflash it with the SCT. For optimum performance and best all around for you and your truck, an Edge Insight with the SCT X3 would probably be the best thing.

I had the Edge on my truck and for the cash you spend its not worth anything i got a sct and i dont know race my truck but i tow with it and after i loaded the sct the truck ran smoother shifted better and towed much better with A 20,000 5th wheel
