GOT MY PROGRAMMER!

So I got my programmer today! Its a edge evolution, all I can say is WOW!!! Its way more power than I ever expected and I really get a good amount of smoke! (for stock injectors) I would recommend it anyone looking to get a little more power!

Ya Im pretty easy on the truck... Im doing stage 1's, a 17* hpop, a intercooler, and a dp tuner in the spring. This is just to get me by for now. Just have to keep an eye on the trans temp gauge!

Ya the evolution does show the trans temp. I only had it on the 100Hp setting for a few minutes, just leaving it on the low setting for now. My gauges come next week so I will run the "extreme" setting once I get the gauges.

I have been using the extreme setting a little but I only get on it for a couple seconds... because the evo does NOT have a EGT gauge! Which is pretty much the most important one! lol

You will like those custom tunes with the DP tuner. The edge is fun from a stock truck and then the DP from the edge will be even more fun.
