It doesnt smoke because it's tuned not to... If you want smoke you're going to have to have the tuner do it or "trick" the truck. I dont advocate a lot of smoke but it can be done, you're going to have to do your own research though.

Why are you typing in all caps?

SCT will make more power than the Edge and is better for the transmission.

i had a Juice w/ Atittude previously. It cost me a Transmission.

When your jumping power levels, the trans cant learn fast enough to handle the power when your back and forth. With an SCT and custom tunes, the transmission is calibrated to handle the power.

No worries.

The short answer is that the Edge does not have the capability of tuning your transmission whereas the SCT does. A lot of 5R110 transmission failures have been blamed on Edge products.
