Mine will do this and has no programmer but it isnt really bad. Dont know how severe yours is though. To answer your question, Yes, it could be caused by the ICP sensor. I would try disconnecting the edge first and see if it is better. If I remember right, the edge just modifies the signal from the ICP to get more fuel in the truck so it could just as easily be causing it. Also, if there is oil inside the connection of the ICP then it needs changed regardless.

Thanks for the reply ya it seems to do it in the stock setting to but not as bad as if the edge is on 2 or 3. I did take the connector off no oil there also I have my EBPV disconnected bc it was coming in and out of the cold mood making that hissing noise that won't hurt nothing will it also I have a turbo back 4" straight pipe its sounds normal if u rev it in neutral but under a load sounds like there's a flap in the pipe don't know if any of this would change that

I clearly didn't do my research on the programmer cuz after looking around on some post I get the vibe that the edge is a POS lol so thinking about keeping that to use for gauges and get the ts 6 position chip

I wasnt gonna mention the whole "Edge" thing! Lol. Most here dont like them.

As far as the EBPV, it is fine to unhook it. I know what you mean about the annoying hissing sound. Did you disconnect the electrical connection or the mechanical lever? If you did it at the lever, the flap could be flopping around inside there. These trucks have a "flutter" sound in the exhaust that is natural. The 4" straight pipe will amplify that a little bit!

The loping is probably just normal and is exaggerated when the edge is in use.

Those TS chips are the cats *** if you are going to get custom tunes from PHP, TW, Beans, Swamps, and some others that I am forgeting.

What is "ishoodoos"? Lol

The Ts chip is kinda universal. You can buy ome of those with canned tunes on it for fairly cheao or all those companies I mentioned, also use the same chip for their custom tunes. Custom tunes seem to out weight everything but come at a price. Having the 6 speed will help. Do some research on here. There is plenty of info on chips and all the tuners.
