edge attitude juice platinum 6.0 ??

Just got the kit used from C-list for 350$ a lot cheaper than new, was wondering how safe it is to run on the higher levels stage 4 and 5?? Also if anyone else is running the kit and what they have it set up at for settings for best mileage and all.

Edge attitude platinum
4' true straight pipe 6' powder coated black tip

edge

I have been running the platinum for about 20,000 miles now. Love it, but as everyone will tell you here it could use some help with the trans shifting. As long as you adjust the trans options when running higher it should be ok (not as good as a tunner). I saw about 1mpg gain in level 1. I DROPPED 3mpg in towing mode, and gained 3mpg in level 3. I stay out of 4 and 5 unless it is a friday night, or my buddies rigs are close by. Level 5 is pretty fun. You can call edge tech support and they will help you with adjusting the trans if you need to.

There might be some people tell you to get an SCT because the edge will mess up your transmission blah blah. This may be true but if you dont go over level 3 and drive your truck nice you wont have any problem. I had one on a 10000lb truck for 36000 miles with no problems with the transmission with running it on level 5. The way I look at it is you got a good set of gauges that add alittle power

I am about to experiment with using a 6.0 evolution to program the trans, and then stacking the plat on top of that. Found one cheap on CL and want to see if it will work the way it used to on the 7.3s. Figured for 150 might as well see. If not then when the time comes to get an SCT I will have the evo to use as the gauges.

I would just use the evo to tune the truck. Thats what I used before I got my SCT and it did a good job. Why stack?

i keep mine on level 5 all the time because i get the same MPG on all levels so i figure if im getting the same MPG might as well get throw some fun in the mix... i also have 6 spd so i don't have to worry about my tranny... when i decide to play around or show someone what it'll do i never push my go go pedal to the floor, i go down about a lil over 3/4th throttle and i NEVER let me engine rev over 3,500 RPMS to keep from building up too much cylinder pressure amd blowing a head gasket(i don't have studs) But when you set that puppy on 5 she'll roll thats for sure.... i'm saving up to get an SCT with custom tunes- they're way safer for your engine and everyone says they put out amazing power...

I had it and I really liked it while I had it.

If you are giong to keep the edge then do this...

put hard shifing on so your trany wont slip as much, trans slip protection on, tc lock up on, 100-60% defuel 100 would be better but this is a personal prefference, I like it at 70.

think about this... the only way you will shortin the life of the trans is if you extend past stock numbers. You also have the ability to put it on hard shifting which will lock up harder, now you can go past stock HP and still be good, to an extent, knowing that extend is hard to tell. This is conserning WOT.

you can be on level 5 and never exceed past the trans limit, by your foot.

I ran it on level 5 (for eco) with "low boost adjustment" on 1 because 2,3,4,5 is just waisting more fuel by making it more ajile and smokey. this was for DD not for having fun...

I tow 10k and cruzing I had it on 4-5. Once I got to a hill it went on level 3, then on a bigger hil level 2. I never let the egt's get past 1,200*

I like having the adjustable levels, and as far as I know the evo is a tunner and not selectable. Correct me if I'm wrong. If so then yah I would just use the evo.
