Edge + 10k mod = BAD
A guy I know has a powerstroke and uh ... I'd be lieing if I said he's the sharpest tool in the shed ........ but he bought this Edge box for his truck, spent like $600 for it with the fancy monitor and all that. But he also so all the extra power/boost/smoke I was making with my 5.6k resistor.
So he installed his Edge .... with the resistor in the ICP sensor ..... (keep in mind the edge plugs in there to do the same damn thing) and he completely fried it. He hooked it up to my truck (resistor removed) and it did absolutely nothing, my SES light stayed on, and he said "Dude, you notice anything different???" I said "Yeah. It's friggin stock again" it had a smooooth stock idle and NO smoke to speak of, nothing.
So I thought I'd throw it out there that I don't recommend trying to run a chip/programmer/tuner whatever that plugs into your ICP sensor WITH any version of the 10k Mod. He's not happy he spent 600 bucks on a chip deal and then spent a dollar on a resistor and ruined it.
