FICM/ECM programming or EDGE product....:dunno:

Hi everyone, I have a 2005 F-250 with 102,000 miles. I probably spend 95% of my time using the truck as a daily driver with light tow/hauling and 5% making the truck work (towing heavy). I have upgraded my turbo since the original one started dying around 90,000 miles. But other than that the truck is stock. I eventually would like to add an EDGE CTS with juice, not sure if I can do that legally since I live in the "People's Republic of California"......but if I can I've been told it would pair well with the aftermarket turbo I have. My question is, which would be better to do first, the EDGE CTS w/ juice, or FICM/ECM programming? Would there be any reason or advantage to do one vs the other? I have read through the PHP website and it sounds very promising, but am not sure if it would be cost effective. Thanks for any advice I can get! I figured the experts on here would be the best route for advice!

Most people would say dot use Edge for tuning. Use SCT custom tunes

I hate my Edge. I just bought a 2005 F350 and next I am getting a SCT. You should not get an edge go with custom tunes instead.

We no longer support the CS or CTS due to issues we have run into with the fusion software.

If you want something that can program the FICM and flash the ECM, I would recommend our FICM programmer. It will do everything you are looking to accomplish.

If you would like more information please feel free to PM me with your contact information. I will get back to you quickly

Thank you
Jay

If I read about the two products correctly they sound like they do different things, but assist each other? So SCT is a better product than the edge? Is there a specific order in which they should be done to maximize the efficiency? Thanks for the help.

Jay I PM'd you.

Yes, the SCT is better because you can download custom tunes specifically for your truck while the Edge is just a generic module that can cause many problems.

If you purchase our FICM programmer, we can do an ECM flash that will work every bit as well as an SCT programmer... Only the flash will cost less than half what an SCT x3 does.

It is midnight here, I will call you around 11 am if that is ok with you. We can discuss the details then

Jay

Go with the edge. It is hands down the best! Trust me.


Also another plus is that the edge is super good for the transmission.

The sarcasm in that is running off like a river!

Thanks Jay for the phone call and information. It helped a lot. Thanks to everyone else for the help and advice!
