Ford F-150 Performance Chip Questions and Answers


  • Can Edge Evolution Programmer # EP15051 Be Used With Cold Air Intake and Cat-Back Exhaust
  • The Edge Evolution Programmer # EP15051 for the 5.4L Ford Triton is intended for retuning engines that are in their original stock condition with known settings and characteristics. Addition of an aftermarket cold air intake could potentially cause the MAF (mass air flow sensor) to deliver incorrect oxygen level readings and result in a too-lean condition. An aftermarket cat-back exhaust by itself will not interfere with the tuner since the changed exhaust will not significantly affect...

  • How Will an Edge Evolution Programmer # EP15051 Improve the Towing Performance of my 2007 Ford F-150

The transmission settings are adjusted so that the proper amount of power is transferred to the rear axle to tow easier. When going uphill with the factory transmission settings, you may feel the truck shift and lose power. With the tow transmission settings, the truck will stay in a gear for a bit longer when going up hill so that it will...

  • Should I Turn Off Overdrive if I am Using Tow Mode Pulling a Trailer with my 2004 Ford F-150
  • It depends on the situation and how much weight you are towing. Generally speaking, if you are towing a heavy load and are finding that your vehicle is shifting in and out of overdrive pretty frequently, then it would be a good idea to turn your overdrive off. I usually turn off overdrive if I am towing a trailer through a hilly road, or through heavy traffic. However, those are not the only times it would be a good idea.

  • Important Temperatures to Monitor When Towing and How to Lower the Temperatures If Needed
  • The key temperatures to monitor when towing are the transmission fluid, engine oil and coolant temperatures. Each of these fluids will have different ranges that you will want to stay within. For transmission fluid, the ideal operating temperature is between 160 and 200 degrees. If you find that you are running over 200 degrees, I would recommend installing a supplemental transmission cooler, like part # D13504, if you do not already have one. I also recommend using the Ford radiator...

  • Why is 91 or Higher Octane Fuel Required for the High Performance Setting on Edge Programmers
  • When using the High Performance setting on the Edge Evolution Programmer, # EP15051, you will need to use 91 or higher octane fuel because the ignition timing is increased and the higher octane fuel ignites more quickly than lower octane fuel. That quicker ignition is what the high performance setting requires to function properly. I have included a link to the installation details for the programmer below.

  • How Will an Edge Programmer Help a 2007 Ford F-150 Tow a Trailer
  • First, there are some configurations of the 2007 Ford F-150 with 5.4 liter motor that have a lower towing capacity than the gross trailer weight of your trailer at 7,800 pounds. Check the owners manual in the towing section to make sure your specific model is rated high enough for the 7,800 pound trailer.

  • Are Tuners Available That Do Not Require Higher Octane Gasoline
  • Yes, there are tuners available on the market which will function with 87 octane fuel. For example, the Superchips Flashpaq Performance Tuner, # SU1842, offers a tune for this and can be used on your 2003 Ford F-150 5.4L. Although this tuner will work when running 87 octane fuel, sticking with the lower octane will limit the benefits of the tuner. Basically you wouldn't be utilizing all that the Flashpaq has to offer.

  • Best Tune Setting To Use with the Bully Dog Triple Dog GT on a 2006 Ford F-150
  • The highest setting (the premium setting), would be the setting you would want to use with the BullyDog Programmer # BY40410FL on your 2006 Ford F-150. This setting requires the use of a minimum octane fuel of 91, but it will provide you with the best power gains. In most situations the stock shift points are the best to use, but after doing a little research it looks like letting the truck shift at 500 higher rpms than stock is the best setting for wide open throttle shifting.

If you were to change the intake for example that could cause a problem because it might create an overly lean air/fuel ratio. But with the different exhaust there shouldn't be any issues. I would start off on a lower setting just to see how the truck responds. Then you can work your way up. Better safe than sorry!
