edge evolution custom tuning

i have an edge evolution, the dash mounted one that has the gauges. i have made a custom tune i made but its basic, i just turned up the fuel, adjusted the idle, raised the speed limiter....i want more

i hear timing is the key to unlocking real power. i want to get the most out of it before i get it sold and get a DP. for those of you who have this and have made good custom tunes, or just know your stuff, can you tell me what i can change to get the most i can. i am in florida and i dont have the truck but if i can help, telling you what settings i can change, i will when i get home thursday or friday. please help! thanks!

Well, Jake, I know you don't want to hear this, but you won't get too much out of the Edge. It's a 'cookie cutter' design where you'll only get as much power as the next guy with an Edge Evo. Just sell it & get that DP. Anything from Banks, BullyDog, Edge, & any 'off the shelf' tuner is worthless for any 7.3 over a mildly modified status.

you heard wrong.

Delivering fuel quickly while keeping your timing in check is.

My timing is set to below stock

PHP can put custom tunes on the evo2. You have to pay for a firmware upgrade and a case switch and then pay per tune. I was debating on that but ended up going with a custom ts chip. I like being able to pull in my 70 tune and if gets a little too hot, reach down and flip it to the 50 tune that is pretty much safe all the time.

the evo2 takes about 2 to 3 minutes to change tunes and that is not too cool. I have forgotten to change from the hot tune to the tow tune a few times just to pull over and have to wait for it to program.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
