Black Smoke

I'm hooked! Installed an Edge Attitude with Juice; what a difference! The only problem is when I try to run level 5 my egt start to climb kinda fast. The Edge has an automatic backdown but I suppose that I need to install a larger exhaust to run at that level safely? :drive:

An open intake and larger exhaust will help yes

Thanks for the info. I have the backdown set to cut fuel when the egt gets to 1300. Does that sound right? Too high or too low?

1250 seems to be the magic number sustained for short bursts.

You can run all day at 1250 and not hurt a thing (pre turbo!!!)... You can top 1600 for up to 10-20 seconds and not hurt a thing too...
