Hooking up the Edge box consists of connecting a couple factory-style connections into the existing engine harness. By just plugging the harness in, you can add five levels of adjustable power, ranging from 40 to 100 hp and increase torque up to 250 lb-ft. The Juice greatly improves responsiveness and driveability, while at the same time increasing fuel economy. The hardest part of installing the Edge box is drilling the exhaust manifold for the EGT probe, and that's a simple task with a drill and tap.
When used in conjunction with the Attitude monitor you can control the five power levels on the fly from inside your truck. The Attitude displays all the information a complete set of gauges would, and will automatically monitor and display exhaust gas temperature (EGT), turbo boost, and transmission slip. It also defuels the engine to prevent excessive EGT, boost levels, or transmission slippage. As an added bonus, it also displays 0-60-foot times, quarter-mile times, and actual speed if you are using nonstock tires, as well as a host of other parameters.
The following power gains are representative of a 5.9 Dodge Cummins (600 Series) equipped with the Juice module with an Attitude monitor:Level 0: StockLevel 1: 25 hp - 80 lb-ft of torqueLevel 2: 40 hp - 120 lb-ft of torqueLevel 3: 60 hp - 150 lb-ft of torqueLevel 4: 80 hp - 200 lb-ft of torqueLevel 5: 100 hp - 250 lb-ft of torque
This month, we substantially increased the power output of our '04 Ram. Is there any more power left? Tune in next month when we dip into transmission modifications and upgrades, and dive into some turbo changes. All I can say is, anyone need a house moved?
