Which Programmer is Better

1.) Edge Products Evolution Programmer w/ BD-Power Technology #EEF1000
2.) Superchips 1705 Max Micro Tuner


Or is there something better? Plus do you need anything else with these programmers or are they ready to be use to get power???

I have a superchips 1705 and like it. Why do you want a tuner? The reason Im asking is there is other options such as a custom chip also. With you having the OBS a custom chip with custom tuning from somone like Tony Wildman would be the ticket.

I ran a 1705 for years and liked it. You do not have to have any thing else to use 'em. The mods you have now will allow you to get pretty good results with a tuner. I have heard may good things about the Evo also.


But, like Vital said, call Tony wildman and get a custom chip. The price is about the same and you get way better tunes.

A chip will allow you to change programs instantly, while a programmer takes a few minutes. You get more tunes on a chip and custom tunes will make the most of your mods.
