The Evolution CTS3 includes all of the great features, benefits, and extended coverage from the CTS2 product line, all while adding a sleek, new exterior and cutting-edge screen. The best look in the industry delivered via a revamped, slim case design and a 5" full-color capacitive edge-to-edge display with true swipe screen technology. Not only is the display sharper, but the higher resolution screen delivers a tremendous pixel ratio and top-notch graphics. New screen layouts, faster processing speeds, and WiFi update capability are just a few things that set the Evolution CTS3 apart from all other competitors.

The Evolution CTS3 reprograms your vehicle's stock computer through the OBDII port of the vehicle. The Evolution is used to save the stock files from the vehicles computer and then upload the Edge calibrations into the vehicle's computer. This product comes with multiple power levels custom tuned by a whole team of engineers, and can be installed in minutes without ever popping the hood. The Evolution greatly increases horsepower and torque and not only does it re-tune your vehicle, it stays mounted in the cab of the vehicle and features real-time, monitoring of vital engine and vehicle data for a complete gauge package.

If you're looking for a product to improve throttle response, that extra power when towing, race down the track, increase fuel economy, or to just improve the overall driveability of your truck then the Evolution is the option. Not only do you get these increase performance features but you get a monitor that offers a clean simple solution for gauges like EGT (exhaust gas temperature), boost readings, transmission temp, load percent, percentage of fuel left, and more with the expandability to even add more with our EAS (expandable accessory system) or Edge's backup camera.

  • Do Tuners/Programmers Leave any Trace Even After Returning Truck to Stock and Removing Tuner
    It is possible that the presence of any programmer can be detected on any vehicle if the equipment running diagnostics is sophisticated enough. While unlikely that it would be detected on a vehicle returned to stock it is still possible. The Edge CTS3 Evolution # EP96TR is the most popular programmer/monitor for your 2012 Ford F-350 6.7 liter diesel. It provides up to 157 additional horsepower and has a touch screen display. You are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act...

  • Does Edge Evolution CTS3 Programmer # EP96TR Affect the Warranty on a 2007 Ford F-250/F-350
    The Edge Evolution CTS3 Programmer, part # EP96TR, will not affect warranty coverage if installed properly. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. This Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually caused the problem. You have strong legal protection as a consumer in regard to your vehicles...

  • Changing Units of Measure on Edge Evolution CTS3 Programmer from English to Metric
    To change the unit of measure for the speedometer function, go to the menu. Under options, choose units. From there, you will have the option of switching between English or Metric units. I have also linked you to a copy of the install instructions/owner manual in case you need it.

  • What Does Edge Programmer Error Message Locked to Another Vehicle Mean
    That means the programmer you have was installed on a different vehicle and wasn't returned back to stock before you got it. These can only be programmed to one vehicle at a time, so you'd have to track down the original vehicle the programmer was used on, return it back to stock, and then you'd be able to program your current vehicle. The reason the programmers are designed like this is so that one person couldn't buy a programmer and then tune all of his buddies' vehicles with it. The...

  • Is the Installation of the Edge Evolution CTS Programmer # EP96TR Difficult
    The installation of the Edge Evolution CTS Programmer # EP96TR that you referenced is very simple and I am confident you could do it yourself. It basically just requires running the cable from the programmer to the OBDII port under the dash of your 2002 Ford Super Duty with a PowerStroke diesel.

  • Is Edge Programmer for 2015 Ford F-350 Diesel Easy to Install
    Edge Programmers like the CTS23 part # EP96TR are very easy to install. You would have no problem installing it as long as you follow the install instructions that are included and basically just follow along with the menu prompts as you install the unit. You would not have to go with bigger exhaust either. Your stock exhaust will work just fine. This will give you quite a bit more power too. It will give you up to 109 horsepower and 234 ft lbs of torque depending on which setting you...

  • Is Manual Exhaust Regeneration Option Included in Edge Diesel Evolution CTS3 Tuner EP96TR
    Certain capabilities of a performance tuner like the Edge Diesel Evolution CTS3 Performance Tuner # EP96TR depend on the information sent to the unit by the vehicle OBD-II port. Edge does make tuners for other trucks that do allow manual adjustment of the exhaust regeneration cycle, but this tuner in your truck will only display the preset ERC, not change it. My contact at Edge confirmed they offer no tuners for your particular truck that allow that adjustment.

  • Will Edge Programmer Void Warranty of Ford Truck
    Installing the Edge Diesel Evolution CTS3 Performance Tuner # EP96TR will not void the factory warranty on your Ford F-250/F-350 under most circumstances. Consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss warranty act that states, in part, that unless the part added actually causes a problem, then installation and use of the part will not void the warranty. We recommend removing the programmer before going to the dealer for any warranty work just to prevent any possible issues. Most dealers...

  • Can Cold Air Intake be Added when Using an Edge Evolution CTS2 on a 2005 Ford F-250 Diesel
    Edge has told us that using a programmer such as # EP96TR with cold air intake is perfectly fine. However, it could still produce an overly lean condition (more air than fuel) so if you notice the motor running differently that would be why and adjusting the air/fuel ratio can fix that issue.

  • Recommeneded Edge Performance Tuner for 1996 Ford F-250 with 7.3L V8 Diesel

  • Can an Edge Evolution Programmer be Used on More than One Truck
    The older programmers only worked on one vehicle at a time to prevent people from just passing around. To move it to a different vehicle, it had to be unpaired from the old vehicle and then had to be re-registered with Edge for a fee. Programmers like # EP96TR, and many from this generation, have the ability to add vehicle licenses to tune multiple vehicles with 1 product. Both vehicles would have to be compatible with the tuner.

  • Can Edge Programmers be Unplugged After They Are Done Programming PCM
    Once you are done programming your vehicle you could unplug the Edge Diesel Evolution CTS3 # EP96TR from your truck and the tune would stay on the vehicle. You will need to be sure that the programmer is completely done programming the PCM before you unplug it though. I attached an install video for this programmer as well.

  • Can a Used Edge Programmer from One Truck be Used on a Different 2004 Ford F-250 Diesel
    You can use the used Edge programmer you bought from a friend. You will need to re-register the device with Edge for a fee so you can use it on your 2004 Ford F-250 diesel. It is designed to be married to one vehicle at a time. This is so 1 programmer can't be passed around which would allow people to tune their vehicles for free. The newer Edges like the Edge Diesel Evolution CTS3 Performance Tuner - Color Screen # EP96TR have the ability to add vehicle licenses to tune multiple vehicles...

  • Does the Fusion Software Need To Be Installed On the Edge Diesel CTS3 Tuner Before Using
    The Edge Diesel Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuners like part # EP96TR will work straight out of the box just by plugging into the vehicle. That said, I do recommend following Edge's recommendation of updating the tuner beforehand via plugging it into a computer which is what is referenced as the Fusion Software.

  • Recommended Tuner for Improving Gas Mileage on 2002 Ford F-250
    The Edge Diesel Evolution CTS3 Performance Tuner # EP96TR referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2002 Ford F-250 7.3L Diesel. I can't be certain what your local shop is referring to with regards to an existing chip on your truck but most likely it is some kind of tuner. If there isn't anything currently plugged into the OBD-II port on your F-250 then it may have been one that can be removed after setting the tune. Either way, if there is a current tune on the truck it will...

  • Performance Tuner Compatible with 1999 Ford F-350 Powerstroke Manual Transmission
    I reached out to my tech contact at Edge and the Evolution # EP96TR will be compatible with your standard shift transmission. He said the unit will pair to your 1999 Ford F-350 and will most likely have a screen that will appear asking if it is a manual transmission, you simply confirm, and it will set up for your vehicle. There are no extra parts needed. I've attached some videos of this product to give you some of the installation help and setup.

  • Are Modifications Needed for a 1996 Ford F250 Powerstroke To Use an Edge Performance Programmer
    I spoke with one of my colleagues that is more up to date on performance programmers and he said that with a diesel engine, performance programmers really do provide good power gains over stock programming, even with stock intake, exhaust and injectors on the vehicle. For the best power gains with a programmer you will need to do some modifications. Anything that will help the engine breathe better will help the programmer and your engine produce the most available power. So an upgraded...

    We do sell programmers/monitors for your 2007 Ford F-350 6.0 liter diesel that will give you increased power and give you a few more miles per gallon depending on how you drive. I would recommend the part # EP96TR as it is both a programmer and monitor which will give you the increased mileage as well as a coach that will allow you to use driving habits to increase mileage.

  • Why Would an Edge Product Installed on a Truck Not Have Power Level Adjustments
    Since you said you couldn't find a power level option on the Edge programmer you have on your 2008 Ford F-250 there is a great chance you actually have an Insight Monitor like part # EP84030. This product only allows you to look at various engine parameters and has no programming capabilities. If your truck is a diesel you would want the part # EP96TR for a programmer/monitor.

For a programmer that will increase your horsepower and torque, you will want the Edge Evolution CTS3 Programmer, # EP96TR. This programmer can provide gains up to 120 HP and 315 ft/lbs of torque. This is also a monitor and will display different parameters for you to track while driving. I have...
