It must not be hooded up correctly or it is just bad. You should ditch the edge anyways they are trash, save yourself a trans or two and get some custom tunes and a good set of gauges.

Will my edge evo on the 80 hp setting I can push it to 30 psi on an uphill entrance ramp. Crusing at 70 I got about 4 psi and it will climb to 8 or 9 going up hill. Taking off at around 2000 rpm shows about 7-10 psi
