What next?

I can't decide what I should do next to my 7.3. I want more power without sacrificing reliability. I was thinking new fuel injectors, or should I buy a HPOP first? Any suggestions to get more power will be appreciated.

more experienced members than me will probably say to ditch the edge and get custom tunes you will be way better of

Wouldn't I be able to just stack it with a custom tuner? Since Edge Juice with Attitude is a fuel module?

camsmell is 100% correct. get rid of that edge crap before it blows out your trans. get a custom tuned chip and you'll have a better running truck. plus when you upgrade larger injectors, the truck will be a new best.

For next mod, i'd get some gauges before anything else. And since you probably have PMR's, i'd stick with a stage 1 injector and call it a day. could upgrade to a 38r turbo and a RR as well. then worry about trans

NO, stacking isn't an option on powerstrokes. that's a cumminGs thing. A custom tuned chip will make it feel like a different truck compared to your Edge

I heard you could stack an Edge Evolution with the Juice though. And the only thing that sucks about throwing out this chip is that I spent about a grand on it.

they can "stack". but, even when they are they still can not out perform a custom tuned chip. trust me, my brother tried to prove me wrong with our identical trucks. I blew him away with my tony Wildman tunes.
I think you might be able to keep the juice for gauges. but custom tuned is the only way to go on 7.3s. espically if your wanting to get injectors

I had a friend with a 2000 f350 that took 2 transmissions out of his truck from running the edge. Read through the forums there is so much to learn on here. I am a fairly new member on here as well and if you take the time to search you will find whatever you could possibly need

So who should I go to for a custom tuned chip? From what I've seen on here while I was a guest, there's quite a few good tuners out there? Who do you like best?
