Anyone running an edge evolution ?

I'm looking at buying an edge evolution and was wondering if it's worth it. or should i just buy a custom burned chip ?

I run the new evolution CTS and my personal opinion is that you should buy the insight CTS and get custom tunes because the CTS is a great device it's just that it's a steep price for the tunes that you get..... for what engine were you looking at it for?

your only really goin to get 1 answer on here... def worth it to just get a custom tuned chip over the canned tunes int he Evo... but you can also get the new Evo with custom tunes from PHP in them... thats the only way i would do it if you wanted the Evo..

that being said you only liked it because of how it looks you can go with a custom tuned chip and the Insight CS or CTS for the gauges...

Just so you don't get your hopes up.....

We no longer support custom tuning on the older Evo 2 programmers with the display on the 95-03 7.3L trucks.

Save your money for custom tunes. I had an evolution on my 02', it wasnt all bad, I mean it did give me power increase but it shift so hard into 2nd and 3rd i would chirp tires. Now I have PHP and its shifts like a caddy. Plus I can just flat out spin the tires instead of chirping.
