do you have your heart set on the Edge...Superchips or Diablo would be a better choice..

Not looking for just a flash programmer. I would like to see real time results. I have been told to stay away from bullydog. I want to see the improvements I will get. I don't want to plug in and flash and then guess, if that makes sense.

yea i get what your saying since the edge mounts by the pillar pod. you could do the same with sc and diablo but its more of a handheld instead.. you see more mention of them because they do perform better, I've seen guys that had an edge later upgrade because they add the bigger mods like a cam which needs a more custom tuneable setup

If you're willing to spend a bit more money, you can look into a Trinity, this has the tuning capabilities of the predator WITH a digital guage screen and real-time data management/capturing; and again, would be a much better tuner than the evolution. If you had a cummins, then the CTS Juice w/ attitude would be a great option, it's just not the best tuning programmer for the gas engines.

Well Guys, I have the Edge Programmer installed now. I did a comparison on fuel mileage and going 100 miles stock I average 16.1 mpg, With the edge programmer on level 1 (economy mode that apparently adds 6 HP and better mileage) Going 100 miles my averaged 18.4 mpg. The other Bonus was the trucks shifts a lot better (not sluggish) it has crispier shifts now. Dual exhaust is next week as is the new air filter I ordered. I am not going with a K&N filter, I went with an AFE Filter. It flows as well as a K&N but does a better job of not letting as much dirt through.

I forgot to add some Pictures. The Driver and passenger windows are now tinted, and I added vent visors on all doors. Took the pics on the day I got it!

I guess I'm a little confused. You asked for help regarding the Edge programmer, and received multiple responses (in 2 threads) pointing you the the direction of DS and SC; none in the Edge direction.........The purpose of asking the question was?????

Don't get me wrong. I'm absolutely not slamming the Edge. As a matter of fact, I am very interested in your user experience as the Edge tuner is not on the most recommended list, and who knows....maybe it's a diamond in the rough.

But asking for help, then going in the other direction is very confusing.
