I absolutely thrashed two stock rated trannys with my evo. Under powered and over-rated. Three options... A: offer him $50 and use it for a code reader... B: Get a custom Chip... C: Both of the above.

This is my .02

I got one for christmas. I like it. I dont like the part that it doesnt do anything for shifting. But i dont hot rod my truck. It makes a difference when towing and such. I was towing my new 3 horse gooseneck and tried it with it on and with it off. Big difference.

If it is the edge evo II and you can get it for cheaper i would buy it and use it for gauges, thats what i was doing till some one decided they wanted it more then i did... all my electronics for that matter.

If you have a manual then i would say the Edge Evo II is not too bad. I would probably still be running it if i didnt have an auto. there is only a slight differance between my custom tunes and the Edge.
