Just installed Edge Comp box - Got questions

Recommended Posts

Guest

I just installed the Edge Comp box last night on my 98.5 Ram. What I'm truely hopeing for is better mileage. It seems to be the only piece that I was missing that most other guy's getting great mileage seem to have.My question is this ... What setting would be best for getting the best mileage increase? Right now I have it set at level 3 with a low boost level also at 3. Where do you have your's set at?Thanks in advance !! ;)

I have mine set on 3x1, but I am running in EZ mode. I have not had an opportunity to check mileage, but it seems a lot better than before.

According to Edge Tech's....If you looking for MPG's out of the product you must run a higher level and sub level. The main level dictates how much the total fuel and timing advancement will be. But the sub level dictates how soon you see the fuel and timing.So highier main levels will give more fuel timing...But now here is the trick...Your sublevel must be a 4 or 5... Reason being while your cruising you boost will fall back under into defuel mode and cancel out the timing and fueling. Just got to drive like a normal human and your MPG's will rise! Don't drive it like you stole it and smoke the neighborhood out...So as for me I'm running 4x4 mode and my 2 cycle oil (128:1 ratio) and getting 19-20 MPG without looking twice... :thumbsupThe sub number is how quick it will get to maximum fuel rate by boost pressure. Higher the number the less boost required to get to full fuel rate. This also might create black smoke during acceleration. But the higher the more timing and fuel comes quickier!Sub Level Fuel Rate 1 33% of Fuel is supplied until 20 PSI of Boost then 100% is supplied 2 50% of Fuel is supplied until 15 PSI of Boost then 100% is supplied 3 67% of Fuel is supplied until 10 PSI of Boost then 100% is supplied 4 adds less fuel than Sub-level 5 5 adds the most fuel at low boost Like shown here... You never get any bonuses of timing in 1-3 till you exceed the boost limit... I don't know about you but my boost is at about 2-5 PSI at 65 MPH so I've got to run 4x4 mode...Main number controls the maximum fuel rate. This it the amount of total fuel at WOT that will be used. Higher the number the more fuel at WOT. Higher levels give more MAX timing and fuel...Main Level Horse Power 1 40 2 60 3 80 4 100 5 120

Thanks for the info !!I was trying to keep my Comp box either at or below level 3 as a main setting only because I didn't want to put any excess strain on the tranny. It looks like level 2 of the main setting is the same as level 3 on their EZ box which they claim is perfectly safe. I was also told not to tow past level 2.As far as the secondary settings I wasn't really quite understanding it fully, but you did an excellent job of explaining it better. Right now I have my Edge set at level 2 main and level 3 sub. We'll see. I think after this, I'll bump up the secondary to 4 just to see what happens. After that, I'll bump the main up to level 3 with a secondary also set at 3.So on and so on ...It going to be a long haul test for sure, but hopefully I'll find that saweet spot in there somewhere that'll give me the best overall mileage.

Ok...So run a 2x4 setting... That will limt the main fuel and timing to a safe level for the trans. But the seb level 4 will allow for full timing and fuel when you need it. Remember the main level is the limit of how much fuel and timing total you'll get... But the sub level is how fast you'll get to the max fuel timing... :coal <- Even on 2x4 you'll get a good cloud!HIDDEN SECRET - Diconnect the MAP sensor and you'll have full fuel and timing regardless of settings! It's like having a sub level 6... 8| :wow

I have a feeling already that 2x4 is going to feel better. My Ram still kinda feel like it lugs a bit off the line ( not racing, but just leaving a light or from any stop )I remember your hidden secret from before. didn't you say that it'll throw a code though.

Yes it will throw a code... P0236 - MAP Sensor too high too long. It will not throw the CEL light at all nor does it de-fuel the truck. The code will remain on the ECM/PCMs for a while and clear on its own. Thats after you re-hook up the MAP sensor...
