Edge

Just installed the Edge EvoHT. Very easy, great boost in power. I had a 2012 Ecoboost KR, SCT and a Y-pipe. It ran great!

The F350 now feels the same on the Extreme setting as The EB. Regens about the same and you can turn TM off. A real plus.

Anyone using this tuner?

only people who don't know about REAL tuners.
Wait till it plugs your DPF and leaves you with a $2000 bill

Two questions, what is TM? And how can it clog the DPF up if it has sensors to monitor it and clean it? Wouldn't it just regen more instead of stopping it up? I understand that with more power comes more soot, I just figure the truck would see more soot and clean more if that were the case. I don't know, don't have a tuner

The DPF is designed to clean up stock levels of soot. Increase soot ,increase regens , before long, DPF failure. Do some reading. Boat loads of DPF clogging issues. Due to the cheap off the shelf crappy tuning . Happened to me long long ago,with my 08 and bully dog it clogged my dpf, i replaced the dpf and switched to edge , dpf clogged again.then I deleted it with spartan, went 170000kms with no more issues. Also Happened on my 2011 because edge was the only tuner available at the time. Clogged the DPF. Per ordered H&S and never looked back. 190000kms and counting.

Two of my friends had exactly the same issue one has a dodge the other a powerstroke . And plenty of other people as told by my uncle a service tech at a local dealer

I'm not doubting you at all. I was just looking at the other side of the coming that is all. Your explanation makes sense. I want to tune mine, but I don't want to delete. So most likely I just won't tune. There is a guy on here that said he had a banks autominder on his 6.7 for 10000 miles so far with no issues.

TM is torque management. Truck runs much better when you get all your power in the first 3 hears.

My plan is to run the Edge through the 36,000 warranty and then make some changes. Edge is not a cheap tuner nor are they a newcomer. Time will tell. I appreciate the warning on the DPF clogging.

Browsing this forum is really going to make me end up getting one too. I'm going to wait and see more of your reviews on the edge though

If you believe the hype in there marketing go ahead. They are just your basic cheap cookie-cutter tuners with weak power gains and usually high egts. Waste of $300 for 80 hp

I understand that you don't like them, and they aren't for everyone. But some of us don't want to tune/delete our trucks but do want to get a little more out of them. I did a search for clogged DPFs and found quite a few threads. And over half of them didn't have a tuner at all. Sure a tuner may clog the filter, but it may not. Everyone has different results. But in my case I also said that I was going to wait for more reviews and see how they are doing on peoples trucks. Just to make sure I get a good product. And also tuners change all the time. In 2011 they may have clogged the filter a lot. But as companies do more R&D they work out the kinks and problems.

This is an interesting thread. Can someone explain how the tune is resulting in a clogged DPF?

There is a sensor that detects soot build up. Once a level is reached, the truck regenerates the DPF.

What is different with a tuned truck that causes a DPF failure? Are you saying that the sensor is not sensing the soot because of some reason? Help me understand.

As far as tunes resulting in more soot, I think that really is dependent on the actual tuner/programming, correct? Some people run tunes (DPF off) resulting in lots of black smoke (wasted fuel). Others have clean tunes. Banks is adamant that they have programs that don't result in more regens (DPF on). In fact, one thread on here has experience from a user.

I am just curious...because honestly....I like cleaner air.
