Edge Evo vs. Evo II

I was looking in to a "minor upgrade" for just a bit of power and some better economy. My local shop told me to get the old Evo and stay away from the Evo II and I would have less hassles and better MPG. I was trying to get the advantage of the gauges as part of the Evo II. I know there are a lot of opinions on 6 pos chips, etc. but for just a comparison between the Evo I and the Evo II, what do you think? any better economy on either? less problems? power comparisons? etc?

your local shop is wrong on this one... they are exactly the same tunes as the old evo...i would highly recommend the new Evo 2 esp if you dont have gauges... as for better MPG i have seen my best gains in the second setting on my evo.... let me know if you have any other questions

I concur that Edge says the tunes in the Evo and Evo II are the same, the only difference is that the Evo II will allow more customizing of various peramiters but that is even limited based on the year of the truck. The newer the truck (i.e. 03 7.3) can be adjusted considerably becasue of a better PCM system (I can't explain that). But as far as just downloading the standard Evo tunes they are the same. If you don't have gauges then the Evo II is the way to go.

Thanks for the tip. I ran the extreme setting on a recent trip, and was a little dissapointed. I expected more mpg gain than i got. I am leaving back out again today, so i will back the tune down to the middle setting and see how it goes.
