Going to install the new Edge CS racing evolution today

As the title says I'm going to install the new Racing CS with DPF delete today. I am going for mileage and not so much towards the horsepower otherwise I would have opted for another tuner. I will post some mileage results after I do a test and let you guys know how it works.

Well it didnt go quite as planned. The Edge wouldnt program my truck. After a long phone call with tech support they determined that my truck has the factory flame thrower flash still in it and the programmer wont work in conjunction with that flash. So tomorrow I have to go down to Ford and get the updated flash and it should be all good after that.

On the upside the unit looks great in the pod and blends really nice with the look of the interior. It has so many parameters that it will read its going to take a few days for me to decide which ones I want to monitor. So with the DPF out of the truck and the stock programming it still picked up a noticeable gain in power and the real interesting thing is that the lieometer always says 16L/100km avg and after driving about 40km it now says 12L/100km. Even though I am not running any of the race programs just removing the DPF improved performance and MPG. Cant wait till tomorrow when I get re-flashed and install the performance tunes. I will give a full review of the unit after I get everything working properly.

It ran really rough and then cleared itself up on its own. I was suprised it would run at all, maybe it has something to do with that old flash in the ECM. Anyway I hope today to get the updated flash in it and load the Race tunes.

becareful with them updating the new tune in, it may go into a limp mode and i dont know if you can get that out, i would be safe and put the dpf back on if i was you because you know when they reflash it that they are going to start it, at that point its all up to luck

I think it will be ok. It didnt go into limp mode when we started it with the DPF off. They know what Im doing and are mod friendly so I will ask them about it. Thanks for the heads up.

It won't go in to limp mode right away typically. It will when it goes in to regen without the DPF on though. That could take 20 miles or it could take 100 miles. If it did go in to limp mode, you would be able to get it out of limp mode by tuning it.

Thanks 08 Stroker250. I was told if it did go into limp mode I could just pull over, shut the truck down and clear the codes with the Edge. I hope it will be ok on the way to the dealer.
