Hey guys so I'm in the process of researching now. I don't have my duramax quite yet. But was planning on buying an edge evolution as my tuner. Until I learned about water/meth injection.

Can I still use water/meth with an edge evolution? I've read you can but it's not good.

If I can't, what tuner do you guys recommend to use with water/meth? I know nothing about tuning.

My mods wont go any farther than deleting DPF, air intake, down pipe, egr delete, water/meth, and then some type of tune. The water/meth will probably be one of last mods

oh hell yeah! theres a crap load of duramax's up here at tech. not many that are super modded up but just the canned tuner stuff. but there are the cummins and strokers. the cummins don't seem really modded up but the strokers seem like there laying down some power just haven't had the chance to see what they got or talk to them. i did have to change that dsp switch a few times to show off a little :)

Well I'll be running it on an lmm. And I'll look into the edge insight. Haven't researched that one any. I just don't think I want to spend the money on efi live. Plus I think that might be over my head. I don't know where to go to get tunes

I see what you guys are saying now. I think I may could go with efi live. I like how rob will take the info of my truck and then program according to it. So I will then have five tunes that I can control. And then with efi live if I ever get serious I can work on the tunes myself. Or upload other tunes from a library. Then I'll use an insight to monitor everything. Looks like there's alot of add ons for the insight. And I can monitor boost pressure with an optional probe. Which I'll need to do for meth/water. And I can just go with the cheaper stage 2 kit from snow since I won't need their unit to monitor boost pressure.

Where do you guys recommend to go for a tune library?

exactly! thats my set up and insight with efi. but i have a guy here at home whose been building me tunes.

i hear punisher performance is putting together a tune library thats gonna be pretty good but honestly I'm not sure. it all depends what your looking for, once again id talk to rob. he will get you all set up with no problems and if you have problems he will get them straightened out for you
