how much smoke?

I just put a new vp44 and edge juice with attitude on my truck. I was pulling a toyota truck on a car hauler last night and had my edge on #3 setting and when I put er down there was hardly any black smoke and I don't think it has the power it should. would low fuel pressure from the lp rob power? I know it shouldnt drop below 10psi and mine drops to 8psi when I mat it but I just wanted to see how it would pull. I'm ordering a raptor pump asap.

Did you replace your lift pump when you replaced the Injector pump? Have you checked your fuel pressure? You might be killing your brand new pump right now if you're towing with low pressure especially with that edge. Get your pressure checked and get back with us.

I put a new stock lift pump on but it can't keep up, so I just set my low fuel pressure warning for 10psi on my edge until I get a raptor pump. so my truck won't smoke until I put it on #5 setting?

Make sure your low boost fueling is set up to 5 if you want to see smoke
:ditto:8psi prob. wont kill you either, but the 5 at WOT isnt good...get a quality LP like an air dog or Fass...and no, it wont see more smoke w/ them like some people say...it just seems like more because you are able to blast away on lvl 5 w/o much worries, untill your tranny starts slipping...lift pump now, and start saving for some tranny upgrades...

how do I adjust that?
I think its menu, then juice configuration, the low boost fueling or throttle response(something like that, its been forever since i set all of mine to 5), then go to each level 1-5 and turn the setting up to 5.

well, start savin for a DD or TD clutch, and the possibility of fifth gear goin out...:doh::doh::doh:

TD clutch = Triple disc clutch? im pretty sure Dan Vallance is the only one running a triple disc on this forum.

if youre just going to run the edge comp you can easily tow with a organic/feramic or a feramic clutch, as long as youre not towing a ton of weight.

but first things first, get that raptor on there :thumbsup:
