  1. Just replaced the OEM battery on my 2015, got 7 years out of it.
  2. Seeing the issues with lifters on the 5.3 and 6.2 starting to pile up. Is this something to be looking for with the 6.0 in the HD's?
  3. I use the Edge CS2 for gas. I went into not expecting lots, and was ok to see only minimal gains. This unit has far exceeded my expectations. I have been towing with it on only the stage one program, and still using regular gas. To say it's a night and day difference is an understatement. The removal of the majority of torque management, especially in the one, two shifts , is a game changer from a dead stop. Unloaded, milage has picked up.
  4. Just to answer some of the specific questions. Yes it will datalog, change tire size, gear change, top speed. It does just a trans program too. Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  5. Let me look into it more [emoji106] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  6. I'm pretty sure that you can. Just to be clear, this is no Black Bear tune. This is no where in that class. However, if you're looking for something better than what it is now... then this would be a great option IMHO. Probably my biggest gripe with the factory tune was the incredible amount of torque management off the line, and on the 1-2 shift. It's gone enough with this that I'm happy. I really can't wait to pull our trailer to see the difference. I'm running 35's, and even with the TC and ST off, it wouldn't even come close to spinning the tires, it'll do it now..

  7. A week and a half into this, and I'm still really happy with the tuner. The driveablity of the truck is just soooo much better, the truck really should have come like this from the factory. Messing around in the settings of it the other day and found a gauge that shows what Gear your in and weather the trans is in lock up or not. I find that one really useful. I'm also surprised how much it is locked up. Pretty much all the time. Cool! Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  8. Pretty much. I went to edge's website and download the updater to my laptop. Plugged tuner in to the laptop to check for updates, there was. I updated it, then plugged it into the truck. It said, "this isint the same truck as before, do you wish to erase the other truck? " Yup, it did, and then it was ready to tune my truck. Picked the tune I wanted and hit enter [emoji106] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  9. Agreed, 100%. I wasn't looking for much, and what was delivered exceeded my expectations. For the price I paid... put me in the satisfied column. I understand and appreciate why there is torque management, so I also wasn't looking to remove all of it either Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  10. Wait.... I'm the only one doing that??!! Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  11. Ok... I have been wanting something extra for performance for my truck since the day I bought it. Sure, it's worked absolutely awesome and been dead nuts reliable, but the engine nannies leave something to be desired. Truck is a 2015 GMC 2500 Sierra with the 6.0l gass. I've always been looking at the tuner options, and it seems to be always the same thing. "Get a performance tune, like black bear, forget a canned tune, they're junk and don't expect much out of the 6.0l anyway " Well, over all, I wasn't looking for much. If I was to get something... anything... noticeably better than stock, I felt I'd be happy. I'm also some what stingy with my cash, I'll spend, but only once I'm convinced it'll be worth it. So, looking at the canned tunes, here in Canada, the good ones typically run in the $600 range. So I've been looking at used ones. Today I picked up an Edge 85350 used for $175, I felt that for that price, I was ok if it was a bust, and would be really happy if I got anything remotely noticeable out of it. Holy crap [emoji15] I plugged it in, set it to 87 performance (regular gas) and I'm sorry.... What a difference!!! I can't wait to see what the tow and 91 performance tune will do. My biggest beef with the stock was the amount of torque management, especially off the line and on the 1-2 shift. Gone.... I have 35" tires, and they were now starting to break loose from a dead stop and punching it. The 1-2 shift is snappy, with almost no torque management, and it pulls nice through all the gears. If you can get a used one for a good price, I highly recommend it [emoji109][emoji41] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  12. This.... This is why I like to be on fourms. This is perfect information and a great upgrade!! Thanks for sharing [emoji109] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  13. I'm very interested in the updates on driveablity and fuel mileage Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  14. We're about as redneck as it gets here in Alberta.... We don't have vehicle inspections [emoji6][emoji869] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  15. I have a '96 Sierra 1500 4x4, and would love to swap the steering wheel for a style that doesn't have an air bag. What would have to be done to keep the air bag dash light off? Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  16. I'm leveled running 35's and tow our 35' travel trailer all the time, especially down crapy gravel roads, and the Bilstien 5100 were one of the best additions I've done to my truck [emoji869] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  17. A 2017 that's at the end of its life??!!! [emoji15][emoji15][emoji15] WTF?? Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  18. Welcome to GM engine nannies gents [emoji2369] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  19. I used to have the actual PDF of those measurements from GM....alas they're buried in the depths of my phone somewhere [emoji31] I did find this from the duramax forum though.. Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  20. Yeah [emoji16] Now, if you put it there from a stop, ya... it won't want to shift up [emoji6] Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  21. That's just it, it doesn't go to first gear, the truck will do what it needs to to hold the speed you're at once you put it into that "1" position. It'll drop gears as it feels necessary from the current gear you were in, to hold your speed Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  22. Dude.... If you got your hands in there and managed to change the bulb.... You have the hands of a child. There is no way I can get it done, spent hours trying. My understanding is it can be done if you remove the wheel liner, I'll see this summer Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  23. Grade braking control. If you're going down a steep hill while towing, put it into that "1" position. The truck will work it's hardest to hold whatever speed you were at when you selected that position. Expect for some high engine revs[emoji6] But it truly works brilliantly Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
  24. Sierrahd17 has it right. It works amazing as grade brake control. I use it often when towing our rv Sent from my SM-N975W using Tapatalk
