Smile Edge Tuner??

I just got my 07 Ram Hemi QC 4x4 last week and of course i want to start working on it. So I love the power out of the truck and i already want more. But i'm not into extreme customizing of the Diablo's capabilities. Anyone running the edge chip and any comments Good/bad? I've heard nothing bad so far from reviews and such but i'd rather have your comments. Thanks!!!

I've owned two dodge's in the past and loved them. Went to a GMC Sierra for 2 years.. DUMPED money into it since it broke all the time, traded it in for this and i never looked back. I am now for sure DODGE FOR LIFE!

Well, I swear by the predator. I have since done more mods to it that needed more in-depth tunes, but when I first got it, the 89 octane tune was great for the power boost and mileage returns.

When looking for tuners, my choices were between the predator and the Edge as my father has the Edge juice on his cummins and loved it. best reviews put the predator ahead just as a basic tuner.

if you don't want to go as far as the predator...at least do the superchips 3865, they are doing some amazing stuff right now. The edge is ok but has limited options...

Think the Predator is your best choice . You have a rather large group of people here who could help you with any question or problems you could have .

Thanks guys for the input. I'm still working on getting it all planned out. But i've only owned the truck for two weeks. I have already cut the resonator off and put in a straight pipe in place of it. Turned out nice and is a bit louder.
