I just installed an Edge EZ module not long ago. Its the only module on the truck, but I plan on stacking it with a Smarty after I upgrade my trans.

I've heard, over on DTR, about the EZ causing injector problems on the 3rd gen CR's. Can someone elaborate on this? I don't want to crack any injectors right now as I'm saving for my transmission.

Other Q's--
1. Is the EZ just a pressure module (for 3rd gen.) or does it have timing as well?

2. Does it do any boost fooling? Should I get a boost fooler for now or wait for the Smarty?

Thanks in advance,
Kevin

I am fairly sure on the 3rd gen, and more sure on the 04.5+, that is the Edge EZ is a pressure box. Too much rail pressure can cause injector to crack. The best well to monitor that is with a rail pressure gauge, quadzilla makes a fairly economical one. JMHO but you won't get a lot out of the boost fooler without some more fuel like the smarty.

Thanks Dennis,

That's it? Nobody else has anything? Is it safe to run alone, or should I remove it?:popcorn:

How about some horror stories?

Don't turn it all the way up, until you get a RP gauge. There are problems with some injectors (around '06) that were blowing out with too much pressure. You have a pyro..that would be my only concern when running the lower levels. Like rufushusky said, it's pressure only. And unless you plan on a bigger turbo, don't waste your money on a boost fooler :thumbsup (unless you are having problems with full throttle EGTs...)

Another problem with higher pressure boxes is the fact that any particles that make it by your fuel filter are now getting throw into the injector at a higher pressure. Now I ran a baldwin PF7977 filter in my truck with a pressure box for 10,000 miles and it ran just fine. For added peace of mind I added a Cat 2 micron filter. Just a heads up, but if you are good with your fuel filter you should be fine.

I did run it hard on level 3 for a couple of runs right after I put it on but not since. I'll just keep it on 1-2. I do plan on a bigger turbo in the future, but that's a ways down the road. Thanks, Kevin.

That makes sense rufushusky, right now I just have the stock filter, but plan on an AD150 set up soon. Thanks again.:thumbsup

Like rufushusky said, it's dirty fuel that causes the biggest problems. Until you get the AirDog, you should pick up a Baldwin (PF7977) factory replacement. It has the lowest micron rating of all factory style filters...

Where can we get the Baldwins? And they are just drop in replacement filters for the OEM filter canister? I know I'm sounding like a complete noob, sorry.

I don't know if any of the vendors here have them, but I know associated Diesel, Inc in Boston has them. Yes they are a drop canister filter that goes in the OEM location. Google them, they do have a website. The filter name is PF7977 I think.
