I had the Edge Juice w/ Attitude and used it for about 6 months. I really only kept it on the Tow mode. I didn't have any problems other than everyone kept telling me to get an SCT...it increased my mileage a little but I kept my foot out of it.

I have a juice platinum on my 07 sence it was new and i have sent it in twice to get replaced. First because the fan clutch wouldn't engage truck over heated, I unplugged the edge It worked. Second time the truck wouldn't shut off. I had to unplug the pcm to get it to shut off. Now i am not running the edge at all because its starting to shift bad.

I have a evolution on my 06 and it was a better product from my experience. When i used it for a tuner it had good power and the shifting was good. I only use it as gauges now.

Maybe but Rescue is trying to prove a point to someone about Edge. We gave some guy good information and then someone else said something about it....

Yeah and I'm the "someone"...

I think my requests in the other thread were reasonable. I suspect that those that did have problems (transmission to be specific) were using the Juice ot Juice Platinum with Attitude. I've yet to hear those types of complaints with the Evo. Now that PHP can convert the Evo to a Gryphon and add custom tunes I now will have something to compare against the SCT and it's tunes.

So Goose... I'm really just trying to collect real data and not just drink the Kool-Aid. As I stated in the other thread, All I ever hear is "Don't use Edge" so I decided to investigate. I'm asking a set of specific questions that I hope will both enlighten and better inform me. So I apologize for asking pointed questions about products that are not SCT, but I am curious about this issue and I thought that PS.org would be a good place to get real data... Mybe I'm wrong...

I'm not a newbie when it comes to tuners... I'm running Power Commanders in my past and current bikes and I'm in the process of installing and programming a parallel ECU in my supercharged Miata.

I guess I'll just sit back and read the responses and possible gleen a bit of data out of them.

It is "real" data when it come from experience. I might not have some hard core data to prove it to you but I have driven a truck with Edge and have compared it to my truck that has a SCT with custom tunes. It is a night and day difference. If I have problems with my tunes I can get them fixed. With Edge you are stuck with what you have. Even if the Edge had no chance of ruining my transmission or lifting my heads I still wouldn't use it because I have experienced something better.
