I ran my 6.7 in august with an intake, power pup, edge and meth for about 2 months before H&S offered the 1st DPF delete kit in october. It ran fine with the dpf and egr except it regened lots from the excess smoke. EGTs get pretty hot with the DPF and EGR on. Just watch your EGTs.

He'll see higher than that because he's got a 6.7L

NO THE EDGE IS A BOX, AND THE JUICE IS AN IN CAB MONITOR THATS CONTROLS ALL THE PARAMETERS, AND HAS ALL YOUR BUILT IN GAUGES, PLUS 5 LEVELS OF POWER SETTINGS, YOU JUST PLUG HERE IN UNDER THE HOOD, MOUNT THE JUICE, AND TAKE OFF...

The Juice is the box. The Attitude is the monitor.

I'd add fuel pressure to your list. Mine came out of the box reading F.P. EGT, trans temp, and Boost. Your power level setting will always read in the upper right hand corner.

6.7l attitude won't read fuel pressure, most guys have the regen, boost, tranny temp and egt until the dpf is gone, i am watching intake temps now that i don't need to watch for regen. soon the egr will be coming off and i want to keep an eye on the intake temps to see how they compare.:thumbsup

5.9 GUYS PLEASE LOOK WHERE YOU ARE POSTING. YOU ARE GIVING INFORMATION ON A 6.7 FORUM

You will be fine running the Edge with the exhaust and EGR still intact. Only probe they will have actually put in is the EGT probe. I have my Attitude monitor showing me EGT, Boost, Intake temp and Regen. I have a manual so I cant see tranny temp. It comes with a bunch of different alarms and warnings you can set up. I have mine on alarm for regen so when ever it goes into regen it makes some noise and flashes a screen so i really dont need to see it on the monitor. You will like it. Its pretty nice and works well.

If you put it at 350 your trucks gunna run for a while. With the emision control struff still on, it takes quite a while for the EGT's to come down. I had mine set for 2 min cause it would take up to 10 min for the EGT's to get below 400, if it ever did. With the DPF off it would take about 1-3 min to get to 400. Now that the EGR is gone, I have the timer set at 380 and it's never ran for a full minute.

I would set to 5min on the turbo timer, that way you know for sure it will be cool and for the egts I would go like 1450 or 1500 and one thing very many people do not know about the edge is you can hit the enter button twice in a row and then set a time limit that it will disable all alarms and alerts, and also shut off the defueling features
