intake and chip

I have a 99 f350 with 109k miles on it. I am looking to get the afe stage 2 and edge evolution chip. The intake is rated at 50 hp max and the evolution is 100 hp max. I have a stock transmission i am wondering running the intake and the evo on max power will my transmission be able to take the power or will it tear it up after sometime?

STOP!!!! Edge does not make any provisions to the trans to help make it live longer with the added power.

The intake will not give you 50hp, it might give you 50hp gain at a different RPM range than before but it will not effect peak to peak power by much at all.


S&B intake is much cheaper and just as good if not better. Get a chip from PHP or DP or TW and you will make more power than the edge ever dreamed of and it will be more streetable as well. Don't forget the gauges, they are a must.

Any time you add power the life span of your tranny is going to decrease. At the bare minimum put a valve body in it.

Do the DIY intake for 4 times less than the S&B or AFE.

TW, DP, or PHP for the tuning.

I like ISSPRO gauges

i like the evo gauge display so i might just buy the edge gauge monitor. my buddy is good at making home make air intakes so he said he can make me one for about 50 bucks all he does is buy a high flow filter from oriellys and pvc pipe haha. I am thinking about tony chip, my buddys air intake rig, and the edge gauge display. with all that running the tw on extreme will my trans last?

With the trans tuning that Tony, Jody and Bill have, valve bodies are not totally necessary any longer. At least that is the concusses coming from John Wood using Jody's tunes.

Don't know about Swamps trans tuning. Sorry.........Talk to Dave or Jonathan when you call to order and tell him to make it shift good for you.
