This was for my 06 350 DRW. So far so good. I did noticed better mpg while on the highway. The lie-o-meter did not show it but the fuel remaining in the tank did. I took a trip up to Virgina, 6 hours round trip, and when I got back I still had just little over a 1/4 of a tank. When I did the same trip, pulling the same load, with the 4:30s I would have been on empty. It was expensive to do. $1800. But over the life of the truck, and diesel prices, Im sure it will pay for itself. 90% of my driving is on the highway. Next is the rest of the mods. Tuner,exhaust,gauges and intake. They have been ordered just waiting for them to come in.

good deal Scott I've been thinking a bout doing mine. What did you get for your mods?
SCT,MBRP 4 inch turbo back,quadzilla gauges. I might do the studs in July. I can handle buying them but the install is going to hurt.

they've been having some issues with the commander coming dead from the factory, plus the Edge uses the OBDII port so the only thing you have to do is drill and tap for your EGT probe, with the unit hooked into your OBDII port you can check any function the computer reads

Can it be mounted below the A-pillar handle so I can keep the handle?

I'm pretty sure the Attitude pods will fit the Insight, and they have one that fits below the handle so you can keep it. Talk to Raul at Stealth Automotive. He sells the Edge modules.

Cool deal man. It's funny, If I drove 6 hours I would still be in Texas. Some folks can drive 2hrs and be in another state.
Just on my mind after reading your thread. Sorry I'm a :tard: like that
