Just curious--what's the problem with Edge products with regards to the transmission? Is it because they don't allow for a transmission tune to handle the additional power?

Anyone with real and factual information on the trans issue want to pipe in? Everyone keeps telling me my trans won't last, how do you know?

Depending on which generation of tuner you have - it's possible.
As I understand it - the early generation tuners for the 7.3 did tuning just for the engine and did not have adequate tuning for the trans to increase fluid pressures,
and so you would end up with more slippage and burned up trans clutch packs.
The later generations (either the evolution or Juice /w attitude (forget which at the moment)) started to have better tunes and transmission updates.
Hence why Jer-1 has had no issues. The tuners for those were 2nd or 3rd gen at that point by the time the 6.0's came out.
