Thanks. That is what I thought. Just surprised at the title for this thread. Makes Edge seem to be some kind of tune/program. To me a programmer is a sort of tuner. Edge is primarily a monitor with that regeneration inducement ability.Captain , Edge does not do any of that , it only displays info collected from sensors on
the truck , that the ECM uses to establish how it controls the Engine , just show info , only exeption
is the ability to tell the ECM that you want the truck to trigger a regen on next start-up ,
everything else is just ability to "view " a few of the parameters usually invisible, stuff like :
-ability to change tire size that the ECM uses to display proper speed on speedo
-what gear your transmission is in
-temperature of 4 EGT temp
-is torque converter locked
-actual soot level in DPF ( used to determine trigger of next regen )
......all stuff that is not displayed on EVIC with stock tune , or even Gde tune .
It was only the full delete that got them in troible. Tuning is not necessarily illegalA few years back the EPA fined Edge Products $500k for defeating emission controls. I did a quick search and didn't see any Ram hemi tuners/programmers on their website this morning just a bunch of monitors, cold air intakes, and other accessories. It's interesting if they are getting back into diesel tunes after getting some EPA religion.
A tune can be accomplished without any modifications to emissions related components as least to the best of my knowledge.
But isn't the ECM itself considered part of the "emissions related components"? If not, why did FCA (and VW and Mercedes, et al) get in such trouble over changes to the engine control software?A tune can be accomplished without any modifications to emissions related components as least to the best of my knowledge.
