Evolution Edge EEF1000

I purchased my truck and it already had an edge chip installed.
I used it in tow mode a couple weeks ago and I didnt notice any real difference in mileage or performance.
Question is, when I am not towing, I currently have it in emissions mode, should I have it in stock mode or emissions, what are the pros and cons?

Thanks

Dean

What is EEF1000? Is that the product name? I know it is an Edge Evolution, but IDK what the EEF1000 is. I used to have the EVO. It is technically a programmer, not a chip. A programmer you plug into the OBDII port and reprogram the PCM when the truck is off. A chip is just that, A computer chip installed in the PCM and has shift on the fly capabilities.
What files are available on it?
I used to drive around in my top setting

Its called a Evolution Edge tuner, you are right its a programmer, not a chip, still trying to figure this out.
It has the following modes:

Emissions
Stock
Tow
Race

Just wondering if there is a difference between Emission and Stock modes, whether you would get better mileage without a performance hit.

To be honest, mine only had three settings. I didn't have an emissions option. I always drove around in race It gave me the power when I wanted it(which, frankly wasn't much). I can't remember what I used to get for mileage with the Edge, it's been so long.

I will say this though....If you were to get yourself a switch on the fly chip custom tuned by any one of the custom tuners around, you will be much, much, much happier with your mileage and your performance. If you like the programmer or you simply don't need the switch on the fly capabilities, you can contact Bill Cohron @ Power Hungry Performance and he can rewrite your Edge Evo with custom tunes.

I guess I dont know what to compare against as this is my first diesel, I will say that the exhuast brake that was installed aftermarket (the previous owner did some mods to this truck and paid quite alot for them! - he kept all the bills) is probably the biggest difference I noticed in towing vs my old BBC (454).

I am getting around 14 mpg and as low as 12 when towing, but, we are climbing alot of hills where we go.

Yes aftermarket exhaust brakes are expensive. There is a way to DIY it, but you don't need that since you already have one.

I'm getting around 14 mpg right now too

Cool, well, it sounds like my mileage is normal.

Doing another trip this weekend without the trailer and will track the mileage to see how it goes.

I am loving the 7.3 PowerStroke
(except for the stupid door locks.....!)
