Edge Evolution

My friend is offering my a edge evolution for a really good price. What are you guy's experiences with this programmer. I have heard both good and bad about edge. I have a Banks Big Hoss now but I want more power. I was thinking custom tunes but I dont have the money now and the edge deal is almost to good to pass up. Thanks for the input.

$200 brand new in the box never opened. It is $404 new on the edge website. He bought 3 of them on ebay for cheap so he is selling 2 and he has the third on his truck. His truck is the same as mine except I have a Banks Big Hoss and I drove them both and the edge is noticably better with acceleration, smoke, and I like the ability to read/clear trouble codes and change power levels.

I would advise not doing that unless you want to buy another tranny.

Edge products are very well known for destroying transmissions.

My tranny was rebuilt less than 500 miles ago. I have also heard of the tranny issue and I deffinatly dont want another bad tranny. If I drive like I always do and dont hammer on it alot and never sled pull or anything it should be fine for a long time I would think (and hope).

Yeah, it should last a long time. UNLESS you stick the edge on it.

IF you just had it rebuilt 500 miles ago, i definitely wouldn't stick the edge on it. You REALLY dont wanna fry the brand new tranny, cause they definitely aint cheap

i have had my edge for a while(approx.20,000 miles) and have had no problems with my tranny what so ever. it has been a good product for me. me and a couple buddies have them and none of us have had tranny problems. i think those that have had tranny problems with the edge may have had a weak tranny to begin with IMO.
