Best Tuner?

I'm looking for a tuner, I want to blow black smoke, and I was leaning twords an edge juice with attitude but I'm not sure, I also have a cummins 6.7 and I run an h&s xrt tuner on there and I get great power and lots of smoke.

I heard to run a 6-position chip but I'm unsure how it hooks up and how safe it is to run?

You want a custom tuned chip. Dont blow black smoke all the time, please. It gives us a bad name.

def would not go with an edge juice.. it has no trans tunning... only way to go on a 7.3L is a custom tuned chip.. it plugs directly into your PCM so you have to pull it out... its not too hard...

make sure your running gauges too... i dont see it in your sig...

my choice is a TW 6 pos chip and a set of regular analog gauges..

if you need anymore info or prices let me know

I am running a SCT 3015 with stock tunes @ the moment.

20 mpg on the highway & if I put my foot in it getting on the highway it will chug all the black smoke I want.

I have considered trying some custom tunes, but I have MAC computer & it's not compatible with the SCT tuner.

If you tow I would go with some gauges, they are in my future.

He must be the guy that drives around with his tow mirrors out when he isn't towing. Seems to be alot on Dodge owners doing that. It's like "look at me and my big truck". Must be compensating for something.

I bought the TW 6 position a few years back from Raul. I'd definately say it was the best purchase I ever made.

ive got an edge juice with attitude, but i also have a trans command. i just putt around in mine though, i like the edge because it has the digital readout for boost, egt and whatnot and i have a trans temp gauge. mine stays in 3 all the time.

Edge Evo As well

I bought an Edge Evo II for the reason it allows me to "monitor" various indications on the engine as well. It has only been on the truck a week but I do like both the Tow and Perormance (1 and 2) tunes and there is a noticeable difference in peformance even on a stock truck. Will post agiona after I get the AFE Stage 2 and MBRP exhaust on late next week.

Hmm, well I blow smoke in my dodge because I can and the cops don't care in Texas as long as it's not more then a 10 second stream, and I only do it to little **** cars that cut me off and like to throw trash out there windows, so they throw trash out and I fill there car with smoke

I really want a tuner I can plug into the obd port load it and unplug it like a flash tuner, but I would like something that also does the transmission settings, does the SCT do that?
