Ok, I just sold the Trinity. Picked up a Turbo Back system, and an AFE Intake. I am either going to go with a Black or Mini Maxx, or EFI Live. Question is, by the time I order the EFI Live DSP5, and pay for the install, and buy a EDGE CTS to monitor it, what is all that going to run? I have not done a transgo yet, so I would likely only run an 80 tune. Without having some major upgrades (Tranny, Turbo, etc) is the EFI Live an overkill? I am never going to dump 5k to build a tranny so I can go a little faster. If I want to go that fast Ill jump on the 14 or in the Vette.

EFILive is never overkill even on a stock turbo stock trans truck due to the way we are able to tune. we can make the drivability, mileage, power, etc and everything much better with fully custom tuning.

we have several different options to get EFILive for alot less that the price of purchasing the v2 with tuning and switch.

if you would like to give me a call tomorrow i can go over several options you now have bud :drink

^Let Dustin hook you up man.

Their tunes are the best of the best and their customer service is top notch :thumb

You can't get any better than EFI man, even if you choose to go the pre tuned ecm w/ dsp2 option you will never regret it. (cheapest all around option)

EFI Live is the way to go. I run EFI with Rob's tunes stock improved - tow-60-80 and 160 with the DSP5 on my stock trans (won't run bigger until I upgrade the trans). Never had issues in a year running the tunes. I use my 80 HP tune for all my daily driving and still get 22-23 MPG on the highway. I use the edge CTS for my gauges, I reallly like the EFI/EDGE set up, works well, very streetable.

Another thing to look into is that new set up duramaxtuner has that meyer diesel sells. If I was to do it again I would go that route. For the money you cannot go wrong.

I"m curious about the EFI / Edge CTS combo--where do folks mount it and whats involved to get the CTS to monitor the EGT and boost?

Is the thought behind the CTS the fact that it is multiple gauges in one, or something else?

thanks

The EFI live and CTS Insight is one of our best sellers. The CTS includes a winshield mount or you can get the optional dash mount. The CTS will monitor boost via the ECM, for egt's you install the thermocoupler into your manifold and plug it into the CTS.

Most people like the ease of install on the CTS and the fact it can monitor anything you want.

If I can help with anything let me know.

thanks Tyler--GM should have given the LMM's a boost gauge from the factory--not sure why they didn't frankly!
