did you change your programmer setting? Could be normal, but I'm not real sure with the LLYs.

Does anyone checked how accurate the boost guage on these edge boxes really are I have the juice w/att and mine has showed 34# a couple of times I dont think it is really that much, but I could be wrong how much can a stock motor handle before issues? seems like 34# is a too much to me and that was on level 4 scared to run 5 or 6 till I spend some jack on a suncoast convertor and tranny upgrade

I would agree with acarrpenter....I have heard from Numerous people that have Edges that they are inaccurate and cause problems. They say it's nice having all that digital info...but the tunes are awful and the guages are not reliable. Just what I've heard.

I have not had any problems with the unit I was just wondering if this boost readout is close and if anyone was running a mechanical guage with the edge.

I heard banks finally got their stuff for the lmm straightened out hopefully edge gets you fixed up it has to be frustrating they both were doing the same thing from what i understand

I thought that the edge module worked by fooling the factory computer into thinking the boost is lower than it really is. Thus the factory computer will purposely overboost to compensate for the lowered boost data given by the module. So I heard not to fully trust the reading coming from the attitude module. I am going back to mechanical gauges soon.
