Sounds like to me you have a tranmission somewhere. It should never ever be a rough shift.

You need traction bars for the rear end hop with those big tires and the rear springs blocked up

Also sounds like you need a power steering pump. AFE stg 2 intake or Tymar DIY kit for an intake. Staight pipe for exhaust. There are many good shift kits out there. Different chips or tunners do different things to your transmission shift points and line pressure. You could try a shift kit and see if that helps. Traction bars will help with wheel hop. Maybe this will get ya fixed up.

I ran the Evo for about a year before switching to DP Tuner, I loved it, and still have it. It shifted hard, nothing wrong with that, it helps reduce slipping... it will change with your driving style, the easier you take off, the smoother the shift, you mash it, then hang on!!

Sounds to me like a torgue converter problem....premature lockup. I guess it could be the programmer but I don't think the Edge has any tranny manipulation in it.
