hello to all,
this is my very first post and figured this would be a great place to do it. anyways my edge install was without a dought worth the money. I'm running a magnaflow catback. I just have the edge on # 2 setting and I'm more the happy. I do have one question and hope someone would know the answer. Can you just go into settings and tweak the shift firmness without starting all over? Thanks,Mike

I also went to the web site, and for some reason I can't get the usb drivers to install. It says preinstall drivers, and when I go to hook up the programmer, it doesn't recognize it.

FYI - New update is out dated today (v18a) appears to have:

Custom Options now determine correct Tire Size and Gear Ratio from VID block instead of flash.

Support for additional calibration families.

Addresses Level 2 "No Start" issue on OKAP9 family calibration

Fixed Level 3 performance issue on all 5.4L vehicles.

Address 4th gear shudder that usually occurrs when transitioning from zero to light throttle.

do you just go to the download section and open the update and replace the lightning software with the new update? or do you hook up the edge and click on check for updates and it takes it from there? sorry for the above questions, i just need some guidance.

Thanks....one More Thing, I Am Sure I Can Read About This In The Manual, But Since I Am Here, Do You Return Your Truck To Stock Before You Plug In To The Computer??? Thanks Again...

Another Question....what Stage Are You Running? I Want To Know What The Best Custom Set Up Is With The Level 3 Program.


Hopefully This Update Fixes My Level 3, Everytime I Load It, My Truck Goes Into Failsafe Mode And Will Not Allow Me To Go Beyond Idle.

I'm running level 2 and have not customized any parameters yet. I'm just starting to experiment with the tuner. I'm mostly interested in increasing performance when towing boats, trailers with ATVs, etc.

Ampg = Average Miles Per Gallon. Mine Says 42, Definitly Wrong Unless Ampg Means Something Else.
