Edge Programmer? thoughts/concerns

I just bought a 99' 7.3 and the previous owner put on an edge evolution programmer. I didnt like the way the trans was shifting under the second tune. What are the thoughts on this programmer? should i just sell it an get a better one? if so what one?

as of right now i took the program off and im running stock. Trans shifts nice now but its sluggish as hell.

Also the previous owner put in a K&N airfilter. What are thoughts on that? my buddy has a 04' cummins and he says K&Ns are no good. Is it the same on powerstrokes?

ditch em both, edge will definitely damage your transmission and the K&N may dust your turbo, get some custom tunes from php and a DIY intake and you're much better off.

Put on a DIY intake, turbo back exhaust. Read into the evolution before you rule it out. I have been running mine for a year without any problems. The evolution is a good tuner for stock trucks. If you want injectors or turbo, get a custom chip.

What is wrong with your shift? I run the edge with stock shift setting and a transgo tugger kit. I love my shift.

I heard the Edge with Attitude will beat a transmission up because it doesn't make any changes to trans, but I haven't heard too much about the Edge EVO. I have been running an Edge Evo on mine for a while now and haven't had any issues, almost @ 200k now. 4" exhaust, DIY intake, and the Evo, no complaints. Plus it retrieves/clears codes, and has several PIDs for monitoring, can't beat that. If you got the money, get rid of it, buy custom tunes, get yourself some gauges, and pick up a good code reader, or just stick with what you got.

For anyone that has an Edge with attitude, don't flame on me, I have never had one just going by what I found when I was researching Edge products.
