Get at least a transgo and run it on 5 all you want. Then call him back out for some more. You just have to watch your 4to5 upshift, with stock tranny!!

Did it limp during the 4-5 shift? How long have you had the Edge? I've had mine for a couple weeks and have run it pretty hard on #5 and have not limped it yet. I have it set to defuel at all shifts and low boost on 5.


I read somewhere that if your trans is a little week to start off on 5 and reduce power to 3 before it shifts to 5th gear.

I have had the attitude sice it first came out.. so the trans is used to it.... it wont limp it on 4... but 5.. forget it from a roll....will try defueling at all shifts to see if that helps

The ford MUST have had something good!


I had a 6.0L and guarantee the Dmax with juice on level 2 would spank it stock! Level 1 maybe...

A friend of mine with a 6.0L has some nice upgrades. He has a true 4" from the turbo flange back. He also has a bully dog module and a afe intake. Claims it was dynoed ar 400 rear wheel horepower? How much of an advantage do they have over us by being able to replace the down pipe? Has anyone ever really tried to replace the dmax down pipe, or is just impossible with out moving the engine forward or cutting a hole in your fire wall? Is it nessacary?

Its to tight for anything bigger, but even though you have a smaller pipe there its not that bad. the main restriction on those is the plugged muffler!!!

The down pipe issue has been acomplished awhile back.
