Edge MFG Response
I talked to Edge today - makers of EVO2 programmer. I told them my interests were two conditions:
1)Economy while towing my 19' boat (3200#) with my slide-in camper (3400#) installed
2)Economy while unloaded in the city & highway.
I told them that I was upgrading to a Tymar/Donaldson intake system, a 4" turbo-back exhaust and their EEF1120 programmer.
I asked- if these are the primary driving situations, should I use a 3.5" or 4" downpipe?
Edge responded that for the towing & economy mode (my situations) the
3.5" downpipe might give better overall performance as opposed to a 4" downpipe with respect to turbo spin up time and acceleration at low speeds.
Note that my primary focus is on fuel economy and towing for my load conditions. If I wanted top performance in acceleration and speed, then I would choose the 4" downpipe.
I also talked to the people at Magnaflow. They had a general comment of using a 3.5" with the stock settings and a 4" with a chip (performance). They had no opinion they were willing to share about economy settings with a programmer.
I'm not trying to cut myself short, just trying to match what's available to my driving needs.
Thanks for all the responses.
