Question edge products

This summer I purchased a 99 drw cc 4x4 with an automatic behind the early 7.3 (august 98). So here's the question. Being new to this site, but not new to the psd, I wanted to make it run a little better, but not burn the tires off of it. It doesn't get driven everyday, just when I need to pull a load, or room for the wife and kids. I talked to a friend of mine who has been a mechanic for the last 30 years on diesels. He recommended the edge evolution programmer, an afe intake, and mbrp 4" turbo back exhaust. Now I read that the edge programmer will ruin the tranny, that was just rebuilt 4 months ago. I want to stiffen up the tranny a little bit, as well as make it run a bit better. Could someone enlighten me why this is such a bad choice?

Edge doesn't tune your transmission it just tricks all your sensors into adding more fuel. save your money and get a custom tuned chip. TW, DP, PHP, swamps, beans, tyrant, gearhead. All theses companies tune your transmission to handle the extra power you're running and correctly tune the vehicle not just trick everything. And custom is alot more tow safe.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.

I just ordered my PFP FU chip. Looked like the best deal IMO.

Now that I learned this, the edge evolution is already in the truck. Is it possible to leave in the truck, to read the egt. and change the programmer,chip? If so, what kind of funds is this going to cost?

Im not familiar with the progrmaer, I only bought the Edge Insight CTS which is just for monitoring. But im sure you can just set it to stock setting and run the chip. Not positive, maybe someone on here with that unit can help you or call up one of the places that sell the chips and ask them.

Thanks for the info! I know everybody out there has opinions, but I would need some advice on what to buy as far as a chip. Any suggestions?
