Tuner on tuner question?

I've currently got a edge juice with attitude monitor. It has my egt on it. Can I turn it to 0(stock setting no tune) and upload a sct tune? until I can afford a eas probe.thanks also, can you clean out a oil cooler? soak in solvent, blow out with compressed air out something?

Yes you can set the Edge to "" and run SCT tunes on the truck!

That is actually what most people do because the Edge is a great monitoring solution to our trucks. No need to get anything else if you already have it





The oil cooler "can be cleaned out but it is 99% sure (has been tested by others) that is will clog REALLY soon after that again. So, in reality... No they can not be cleaned because the passages are so small.

A bad oil cooler is a bad one! And after going so far into the engine to get it out IMO it is such a better idea to put a new $250 cooler in there anyways.

I will eventually sell the edge juice. Thinking I should probably change my oil cooler soon as its at 11* delta.

What coolant are you running?

Do you still have the EGR cooler?

Did you use Restore and restore+ when flushing?


i guess the flush might have clogged your cooler like it did mine



I would change out that oil cooler quickly before rupturing your egr and sending coolant into your cylinders


I didn't believe the guy that told me that when I was in your place...

I wish I took his word and did it ASAP!!!

Sorry to say it man, but the flush almost certainly did screw up your oil cooler. When you do the coolant flush, a lot of the crap that is loosened up in the flushing process will get caught in the tiny passages of the oil cooler, and once the cooler is clogged, there is really no way to unclog it. That is why I don't understand why so many people are telling every one to flush the coolant system when deltas are looking fine! If your oil cooler is healthy for God's sake just leave the sleeping dog lie!

Sorry, just had to get that out. I would say you probably should look at replacing your oil cooler. And, yes the Edge juice is fine to leave in onthe stock setting for gauges

I just got my insight last week. So I had no idea what the deltas were before. Just the thought of that coolant scares me. But makes sense to not flush.
