Default Edge Evo settings

OK so allot of us on here have an Edge Evo for our 4.6/5.4 F-150's. There may be ppl on here(including myself)that are new to the tuner world and may not know why is it better to change shift points,standard shifting,torque locker converter and so on and what is has to to with the Edge and our trucks in extracting the most gains from our Evo's.

Allot of also have the same set ups on trucks as other members(example,35's,leveling kit,gots mod/CAI and duel exhaust)Maybe allot of this stuff plays into effect with our Evo and some of of may not know to account for all this.

So my hopes in creating this thread are to get the more experience guys with Edge Evo's to share there knowledge and what they have found works for them and there set ups and share it with us.The guys who may not know much and why shift,torque converter lock matters

So please share your set ups,(tires,leveling kit,lifts kits,gots mod/CAI,dual exhaust and so on)N let us other member who might have the same set up as you in what settings you are running with your Evo.

Hoping this catches on

Is it because ya don't know everything about your trucks transmission and how the Evo works with it?Or just because?lol

Ya hopefully it catches on.I'm sure there are other members like me on this forum and knowing a whole lot about the tranny and the evo working together in settings

I don't know what to change, and don't want to screw something up.

I agree 100%. I just got my Evo about a week ago and I have been running it on level 2 but the only thing I have changed is the tire size.

Why only the tire size because I don't know about anything else. It's not because I don't want to learn but the owners manuel does not explain anything in detail and I have not seen any good information when it comes to the settings. I have done plenty of searches also. The other thing that interests me is the alarm capability of the Evo but once again I don't know how to use it so I haven't touched it. When it comes to the alarm settings I would think you need to know what is a normal temp. and what it should be set at to let you know it is too high etc....

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ill tell you this:

I have fairly extensive tuning experience with cars. Most handheld tuners iv run into dont posses enough setting adjustment for you to mess anything, to bad. There is such a liability risk that they really water those things down. Thats why internet ordered tunes are never all they could be also.

As long as you dont mess with the fuel settings(unless using a WIDEBAND o2 sensor, not the narrowband POS lightshows) you will be fine.

Adjusting timing is brutally simple, and more times than not is just time consuming. Timing adjustments are where you get the majority of your power gains. You can sneak out some power with the fuel settings, but more times than not fuel is used as your safety factor.

If you want some more power, start increasing your timing. You will know when you add to much when you hear something that sounds like marbles rolling around into each other in your motor. That is called ping. When you hear that sound, back the timing down .5*-1* and you will be set.

I encourage you all to read this book:
Greg Banish, Engine Managment Greg Banish, Engine Managment
This is an excellent quick read on what exactly "tuning" in tales. Its really not as difficult as the dyno tuner makes it sound.

If you have some questions on anything, give me a holler. I will help to the best of my abilities.

i have eberything up as high as it can go except the timing and the tranny firmness ( i have that at 18,18,12) I run in the level2-towing. Truck is a beast and WOT is awesome.

But like the above post, these do pretty minimal changes to the engine because like me and most people we dont know everything about engines. But i maxed mine out anyway.

JCP281, am getting that marble sound when truck is cold at low rpm's. i have a couple of mods, gibson exhaust, CAI, and of course the edge evo. i maybe mistaken the sound for something else but it sounds like electricity or marbles dont really know but its sure a strange sound. the only changes i did on the evo, tire size and gear ratio. my question is, is it because the evo was made to work on stock F150. i know you can get custom tunes but my thing is how can i get around by not sending my evo for custom tunes and doing it myself, am sure there has to be some one else with my setup its pretty much a common set up. i like the programmer but they should of made another setting for common mods. am trying to not run lean. is it a good idea to have a air/fuel ratio gauge (wide band)?

Its definitely not "ping" if you havnt advanced the timing yourself, especially at low RPM. I have yet to find a realistic advancement value that will make my 4.6L ping in low RPMs. You might just be hearing valve noises.
