The Excursion came with an Edge Evolution programmer when I bought it. I didn't like how hard it caused the tranny to shift from 1st to 2nd, so I put it back to stock and went with a PHP 5 position chip instead. (Much better!) The tranny still shifts hard from 1st to 2nd but not as bad now. The previoius owner had the transmission rebuilt by some performance shop in B.C. Canada (spent almost $5000 on it!!!) and I dont know exactly what kind of tranny is in it now, but shifting from 1-2 is hard, the rest of the shifts are nice and firm so I dont get it.
I still need a monitor, so I bought the Edge Insight CS, hoping the Evolution EGT probe connector would work with it but it doesn't. The Insight has a 6 pin connector where as the Evoloution probe is a 4 pin. So long story short I need to remove the EGT probe to install the new one.
Funny cause when I called Edge, the tech on the phone told me the probes were compatible with the Evolution and Insight, but when I got it, it obviously wasnt. I called them back, got a different tech on the phone, and he told me they weret compatible and that I had to buy a new probe for the Insight.
So I am hoping I can remove the old one without any issues!! The threads better be the same for both or I will have to plug the hole and drill and tap a new one.
