Some of the great new features include full color screens, multiple power programming options, monitoring data from your vehicles computer with an in cabin color display, reading and clearing check engine lights, graphed performance tests such as 0 to 60 and quarter mile time runs, custom tuning options, back up camera, customized accessories, state-of-the-art mounting options, and Internet updatability. To get just some of these features individually you would need to buy a power programmer, diagnostic tool or scan tool, gauges, mounts, and more costing you more than double the price of the Evolution CS or CTS. 01:10

Both the CS and CTS models feature the full color high resolution screens. The CS has a 2.4 inch button controlled screen while the CTS model features a 4.3 inch touch screen. Both have a light sensitivity meter that will automatically adjust brightness as it gets darker. The CS and the CTS come packed in a new style all black ruggedized case with a universal system for window mounting.

The bottom line is that the Evolution CS and CTS models just flat out look better than any other product on the market today. The Evolution CS and CTS is loaded with several different power programming options. Each power level is tuned specifically for different driving situations. The level names are reflective of how each level should be used. 02:15

Economy. The economy level usually creates less over all power than other levels and is specifically tuned for optimum fuel economy. The economy level is great for daily driving. Towing. The towing level is designed for towing and has been optimized to provide power where it is needed most in order to move a load without over stressing the transmission without excess power. Performance. The performance level is a high power level in which fuel injection and timing strategies are tuned semi aggressively to extract substantial power gain from the vehicle with out sacrificing drive ability or durability. Extreme. Extreme is the highest setting for the evolution in which the fuel injection and timing strategies are aggressively tuned to extract to have a high performance from your vehicle without sacrificing drive ability or durability. The Evolution CS and CTS communicates with your vehicles computer and displays a wide variety of important information about your vehicles performance. The screen displays can be easily changed and configured to allow each user to view the data most important to him or her which include customized gauges, alerts, and safety features. That means not only can you monitor important engine data such as the exhaust gas temperature, but you can create user defined safety alerts that will audibly and visually let you know when you are reaching your predefined boundary. This advanced monitoring and alerting capability helps you use the added power safely to protect you and your vehicle. The Evolution CS and CTS can monitor dozens of engine parameters which include miles per hour, boost PSI, battery voltage, transmission fluid temperature, engine coolant temperature, and many many more. The Evolution display can be configured to display three analogue style gauges, two digital gauges, and the current power level setting. Or two, four, six, or eight digital gauges as seen here. All of these data parameters can be changed by simply touching the parameter and ing a new one. Edges simple yet powerful and unique design makes it effortless for individuals to tailor the Evolution to monitor your vehicles performance based on your specific need or preference. 04:34

The Evolution CS and CTS allows you to test the performance of your vehicle by timing 0 to 60 in 1/ 4 mile runs. Equipped with a built in drag strip Christmas tree light system.

Diesel truck customers can also check injector balance rates. If you experience a misfire, knock, excessive smoke, or rough running condition with no electrical DTCs the injector balance rate option can help identify faulty injectors. The ability to view and clear diagnostic codes and detect other vehicle problems with the Evolution saves time and money.

I Bought this tuner for my 02 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD 6.0 and absolutely love it. This tuner gives you the power you need in any situation. The Economy tune is letting me get 18 miles to the gallon in this hog. 6 mpg improvement!! The towing tune is great. Allows me to pull my 27 ft toy hauler up any hill like nothing. Has a few different gauge setups to fit your style. I think This product is overall the best one out there. Very recommended. 62679

I've used it for 3 months. The mileage calculated by the device is consistently high. After checking mileage by the old fashioned method in average terrain (not flat), I have concluded that economy mode will yield 1MPG better on the road and no improvement around town. Extreme is fun to use but on the road mileage will fall to about 10-11MPG (from 12-14MPG average) even if you drive somewhat conservatively. Trailer towing mode consistently yields 1MPG improvement. I was getting about 8.1-8.2MPG towing my 8800lb 5th wheel before Edge. With the Edge in towing mode, I get 9.1MPG and the shift program makes it a lot easier to drive in the hills. This device will frequently indicate average 18MPG, but it is not realistic and does not even match the factory mileage computer which is about 0.5-1MPG high. The absolute best I got in the economy mode, unloaded, on average terrain was 15.4MPG. I would normally get in the mid to high 14MPG range at best. I am pleased with the Economy mode and I certainly appreciate that 9.1MPG while towing. If I were buying again, I would not pay extra for the touch screen. If you are an amateur radio operator, you need to be prepared for RF interference in the 2M band. It reminds me of the garbage you hear when you get near the LED traffic signals. It will overwhelm your APRS signals or weak simplex signals because you will need to raise the squelch so high to get above the interference. 87480

  • I contacted our representative at Edge and he informed me that they are getting gains of up to 35 horsepower and 35 ft/lbs of torque added to a stock Ford F-150 using the Edge Evolution CTS Programmer, part # EP85250. The gains on your truck could vary slightly. In addition to a programmer, adding exhaust and an aftermarket intake will also help in performance gains on your 2002 Ford F-150.

In the Towing setting the engine is tuned to provide optimum power when it is most needed to tow a load.

Others have gone as far to say that they have seen 28 mpg on the highway. The driving conditions, terrain, speed, driving habits and other variables factor in to fuel economy.
