Get rid of the edge, and get a custom tuned chip

And gauges if you dont already have them. But i would assume you do with all those mods.

how about dumping that edge for a custom tuned chip so that you can take full advantage of your injectors...

the edge things your truck is stock so it will not give you the best tuning for those injectors.... only a custom tuned chip like the Tony Wildman will do that

let me know if you have any questions

You could look into getting a custom tuned chip from Tony Wildman, DP tuner, or others. The Edge doesn't do anything for the injectors or turbo upgrades that you have. You could also look at doing the IDM mod or buying a modded IDM to help fire the injectors for a little performance. The other limiting factor is that you have a 15* High pressure oil pump, so increasing to even the later model 17*, or going up to the stealth twin pumps or something like that will help a lot.
