here's the thing. you may have a fuel problem because the edge juice will smoke like CRAZY even on 3-4-5 without the hot unlock code. on 5 my truck smoked like a locomotive. i would consider making sure your truck is up to snuff before modding it anymore, something doesn't sound right.
second. the guys are right, the edge juice is bad for your truck. i've had one, and i can tell you the SCT is WAAAYYYY better for the 6.0 in all aspects.
do not be deceived, edge does nothing to control the TCM or the "learning" of the transmission. all it does is defuel for shifting, but it has no ability to modify transmission controls like the SCT does. trust us on this please. i had the latest edge also, and i now have a 5500 dollar aftermarket tranny/converter because of it. (but well worth the money spent now)
please take this advice to heart and do the right thing for your truck.
