Video Transcript for Review of Edge Performance Chip - Programmer w Monitor - EP85450

Today we're going to take a look at the Edge Gas Evolution CTS-II Performance Tuner with the five inch color touchscreen. Now this does fit many different vehicles. What I would recommend for you to do is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show if this will work for application.Also, on the product page of this part number at the very bottom of the page, it'll list many of the vehicles and the engines they have that this will work on. Now, it does include everything laid out here on the table. The CTS-II tuner, the suction cup mount that you can install onto the back, the OBD-II HDMI cable, the USB cable, some cable ties and a nice owner's manual and quick install guide to show you how this installs and how it operates. Now this is a performance tuner that will let you reprogram your vehicle's OBD-II engine control module for improved horsepower, torque and fuel economy.Connects in minutes to the OBD-II port in your vehicles manufactured in 1996 or later.

Does offer four preset programs; economy, towing, performance and extreme to maximize your engine's potential. Does have a transmission only setting which will provide firmer shifts without modifying your air, fuel mix. It will display parameters and diagnostic trouble codes, reads dozens of parameters supported by your vehicle and it will read in clear the diagnostic trouble codes and include the full text descriptions.It is a five inch. Let me just measure that for you, corner to corner. High resolution, full color touch screen with scroll and swipe that'll let you choose your menu options quickly.

The user program parameter alert system will help you save fuel and protect your engine.

You can download background images and change gauge colors including a custom color mix and you can retrieve recorded data. Has a built an accelerometer to measure G-force and vehicle pitch and roll.

And I'll even let you track routine maintenance with programmable mileage inner role alerts.Includes zero to 60 acceleration, quarter mile and engine horsepower test and included mileage coach app will help you monitor MPGs and develop fuel efficient driving styles. It is designed to work with the Edge backup camera and the EGT thermal coupler.

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

Review from a similar Edge Evolution CTS2 in Performance Chip


Unfortunately it hasn't worked well for my year truck. 2007 2500HD. The problem is it randomly goes into reduced power mode for no reason. I've been working with the manufacturer but they haven't been able to come up with a solution. Apparently it is a problem they can't fix right now. 284851

Do you have a question about this Performance Chip?


  • Tuner for 2012 Ford F-150 5.0L with Aftermarket Cold Air Intake and Exhaust
  • Edge has a section in their instructions that states you should not stack performance products and use their tuners so I do not recommend them since you have aftermarket cold air intake and exhaust. I recommend the Flashpaq # SU4845 for your 2012 Ford F-150 5.0L. It will do everything you are looking for and it works well with aftermarket exhaust and cold air intake.

  • Do Horsepower Gains Stack From Tuner, Intake and Exhaust on 2018 Chevy Silverado With 5.3L V8
  • While you can add a performance tuner, exhaust mods and cold air intake to your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 5.3L V8, the horsepower gains will not necessarily stack. These components can all add horsepower but it will likely not add up per component. So if you added the Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450, MagnaFlow Off-Road Pro Series Turndown Cat-Back Exhaust System # MF17148 and Airaid MXP Cold Air Intake System # AR200-285 the only way to know for certain the...

  • Tuner for 2001 Chevy Suburban That Improves Power and Gas Mileage
  • We can check off most of what you are looking for with the Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450. Though it will not adjust on the fly, what it can do should make up for that. The Edge CTS2 will add up to 33 HP and 38 torque, improve your gas mileage, and can be mounted in the manner you want by using the Custom Dash Pod for Edge Monitors # EP28500.

  • Recommended Performance Tuner for 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 5.7L V8 HEMI
  • I highly recommend going with the Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450 because it couples the most potential horsepower and torque upgrades possible for your pickup with the largest screen at 5", plus it is legal in all 50 states. The larger screen makes it easier to see the adjustments and parameters that you have set up as well. If you're looking for something that is a little more cost-effective then I recommend the Edge Gas Evolution CS2 Performance Tuner # EP85350...

  • Can the HaulGauge Monitor Different Functions of Tow Vehicle
  • I do have a solution for you to keep an eye on various stats for your 2008 Chevy Tahoe while you're towing but the HaulGauge Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale # HG103 is only designed to determine weight ratings for your towing setup and it doesn't have the ability to sense and display anything else. If you are only wanting to monitor those things then I recommend using the Edge Insight CTS2 # EP84130 which is a monitor system with a touch screen for easy navigation. This product...

  • Recommended Tuner and Cat Back Exhaust for 2016 GMC 1500 5.3L
  • On your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 with 5.3L, the addition of cold air intake and programming chip won't change the life expectancy of your catalytic converters or the oxygen sensors. The oxygen sensors will have the parameters changed slightly by the tuner, but nothing that will be noticeable in life expectancy. For your vehicle, we unfortunately don't have a confirmed fit at this time for a cold air intake system. For a tuner, I recommend the Edge EvoHT2 Hand-Held Performance Tuner...

  • What Performance Gains can be Expected With Edge Gas Evolution on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado?
  • The Edge Gas Evolution CS2 Performance Tuner # EP85350 will give you up to 21 HP and 30 foot pounds of torque on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500. There is not a set number in terms of fuel efficiency because the gains are going to vary depending on a number of factors like driving habits. The Edge Tuner comes with four pre-loaded tunes - economy, towing, performance, and extreme - and has performance tests that show you real-time stats such as 1/4 mile time.

  • Programmer Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 for Maximum Horsepower
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 with the 3.5 liter EcoBoost I recommend the Edge CTS programmer part # EP85450. This programmer can give you up to an additional 114 horsepower and 104 ft lbs of torque which will be very noticeable. I also recommend it because it works as a gauge display that will allow you to view several engine parameters in real time. It also has a larger touch screen plus a driving coach to help you maximize your fuel mileage by adjusting driving habits.

  • Will Edge Tuner from 2006 GMC Sierra with 5.3L Engine Fit 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
  • There are a few Edge tuners that fit both a 2006 GMC Sierra with a 5.3L V8 engine that will also work on a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 with a 5.3L V8 engine; I will link the ones that will fit both trucks for you so you can compare them to what you have: - Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450 - Edge Gas Evolution CS2 Performance Tuner # EP85350 - Edge EvoHT2 Hand-Held Performance Tuner # EP26040

  • Does Edge Evolution Programmer have Towing Tune and Can Shift Points be Manually Adjusted
  • The Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450 does have 4 pre-programmed tunes on it: economy, towing, performance, and extreme along with a transmission only setting to firm up shift points. There are some custom options you can select within each of the tunes but manually adjusting when the vehicle shifts is not one of those options.

  • Programmer Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-150 with 3.5 liter EcoBoost Engine
  • I would recommend the Edge Evolution CTS2 part # EP85450. This can give you up to 54 additional horsepower and 68 ft lbs of torque which you will definitely feel, and because the programmer gives you the ability to monitor engine parameters like transmission fluid temperature etc. It's basically a programmer and gauge display rolled into one. It also has a driving coach which can help you find ways to maximize fuel economy if you are interested.

  • Does the Edge Evolution Only Make Changes to the Transmission
  • The Edge Evolution programmer # EP85450 can make changes to the air/fuel ratio for optimum performance. It can change transmission attributes as well but that isn't all it can do! I have also included a link to our help article on programmers for you.

  • Will the Edge Evolution Programmer Fit a 1999 Ford F-250 with 5.4 Liter Motor
  • The Edge Evolution CTS2 programmer # EP85450 is indeed a fit for your 1999 Ford F-250 with the 5.4 liter motor. My favorite feature of this programmer is actually the large touch screen display. With a lot of programmers the displays are fairly small and can be hard to see. This one has a 5 inch (diagonal) display so visibility is not an issue. You can also add a custom dash pod # EP18500 to make the addition of the programmer appear more like a factory component.
    view full answer...

  • Does Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner Need to be Plugged In for Tunes to Work
  • The Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450 does not have to be plugged in at all times for your tune to work; you can unplug it after you have selected and installed your tune. You just will not be able to use the screen for monitoring parameters when the tuner is unplugged.

  • Is Horsepower And Torque Affected By Octane Level Of Fuel When Using Performance Programmers
  • I called my contact at Superchips and asked what the breakdown for performance is when using the Flashpaq Performance Tuner, part # SU2845. There are 5 settings you can choose from and they are set for the octane level of the fuel you are using. They said for the lowest level of increase using the 87 octane fuel you could expect and increase of about 33 horsepower and 24 torque increase. They said that is dependent on the engine you have in your truck. You can check the VIN and if the letter...

  • How to Improve Towing Performance on a 2007 Ford F-150
  • You are correct in that replacing the gears on your 2007 Ford F-150 with a taller gear set will increase towing performance. Therefore, changing the stock 3.55 gears in your truck for a set of 4.10 gears will likely help address the lack of pulling power you have while traveling up an incline at high elevation. I am also glad to hear that you are aware of the trade off from doing so as increased RPM's will drastically reduce your vehicle's MPG rating. With that being said I would only...

  • Programmer and Cold Air Intake to Improve Mileage of 2015 Ford F-150 5.0 Liter
  • Best option we have to improve your gas mileage will be a programmer/monitor like the Edge Evolution CTS2 part # EP85450. This will give you a few extra miles per gallon by just making the motor run more efficiently but it also features a driving coach that can help you modify your driving habits to improve mileage as well. That in conjunction with a cold air intake like the AirAir MXP part # AR401-293 will give you the best possible gas mileage you can get in a lifted truck with a V8...

  • Can the Edge Insight CS2 Correct Speedometer of 2012 GMC Sierra to Compensate for Larger Tire Size
  • The Edge Insight CTS you referenced, part # EP83830 is a monitor, not a programmer. It is not capable of correcting the vehicle speedometer to compensate for the increased tire/wheel size, but the speed displayed on the # Code: EP84030 CAN be corrected for the new tire and wheel size. The Edge Evolution # EP85450 will allow you to correct the speedometer for your larger wheels. The unit will also boost horsepower by 25 and torque by 29 foot lbs. This Evolution is NOT CARB compliant,...

  • Yes, the Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner part # EP85450 is compatible with your 2009 GMC Sierra that has the 5.3L V8 and will allow for you to disable the Active Fuel Management (AFM) system. We also have custom dash mounts available for this, part # EP28501 for black or part # EP28502 for grey.

  • Will Edge Evolution CTS2 Programmer Work on 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 with Cold Air Intake
  • Programmers are designed to work with basic bolt-ons like a cold air intake that you have installed on your 2018 Chevy Silverado 4.3 liter. So the Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 programmer part # EP85450 that you referenced will fit and work well. Edge states that this programmer can give you up to 20 horsepower and 24 ft lbs of torque.

  • Programmer Recommendations for a 1998 Ford Expedition with 5.4 Liter V8 Motor
  • You typed 1989 Ford Expedition but the first model year was a 1997 so I assume you meant 1998. Which is good because there are programmer options for the 1998 Ford Expedition. For the 5.4 liter motor in your Expedition the most popular programmer and monitor is the Edge Evolution series, # EP85350 for a color screen or # EP85450 for a color touch screen. The estimated power gains are up to 15 horsepower and 20 feet pounds of torque. You can also view several performance parameters at...

  • Programmer Recommendation for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 6.0 Liter Gas Engine for Towing Mileage
  • The Edge CTS2 Programmer part # EP85450 is confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6.0 liter engine. Normally with the addition of just a programmer you'll see 1-2 additional miles per gallon. Now with towing those results are still there but the mileage will never be great since your moving such a large amount of weight. Another great thing this programmer has is a fuel mileage coach which allows you to see how your driving habits affect your mileage. This can help...

These are tuners without a fancy display. Such items are available too but at substantially higher prices.

The Flashpaq works well with vehicles that have additional enhancements such as cold air intake. If you want to have a monitor then the Edge Evolution with color screen # EP85350 or with touch screen # EP85450 are fantastic options. They just are not legal in California. Any of the above programmers will have various modes for different situations...
