im looking to get en exhaust and a cold air intake soon and then a either edge juice or smarty. it seems like everyone on here swears by smarty. i know i will also need to get gauges if i go with the smarty, is it really worth it? also i do plan on getting my auto trans done after that. so will i be ok running the smarty on 3 till i get my 47re upgraded? or should i wait to get my trans done before i get any upgrades?
thanks for advice in advance-joe

Edge Juice is much much better than Smarty on the 2nd gen trucks.

Smarty is only rated at 65 hp.

Definitely get the Edge Juice.

adrenaline for sure....
x2 I have put a couple on a few trucks and I would would definatly say adrenaline, or the edge drag comp hot, you can stack the smarty with that but only gain 20 extra hp, but first hit the tranny issue and lift pump, then you can go all out.

ive heard that adrenaline can cause too much boost for stock turbo is this true? because im not planning on doing the turbo any time soon. but to answer kmkdiesel i already have a glacier fuel pump that is putting 20psi at idle and 15psi at full throttle thanks for the advice guys:thumbsup

Good point Chris, using the safeguards put in place using the defueling paramaters, boost should be ok. I can't wait.. then I will see it first hand. Thanks

smarty tst adrenaline and edge is how i rate them, personally i'd go with upgrading the trans first, then do a programmer or 2. if you plan on doing any towing i'd go with the smarty cuz i've pulled with both the smarty and adrenaline and the smarty had lots more grunt at low end for towing.

ive heard the edge is better on the 2nd gens, and i think the adrenaline is better than the edge, just by the 2 trucks ive ridden in. ive heard the tst is pretty crazy too. your trans will defenitly need the upgrade whatever you do.

Definitely get the Juice, It'll be way more bang for your buck on a 99! Juice is rated over 100 H.P and comes with guages. Smarty is like 65 h.p and doesn't come with guages. As far as I know they're both pretty close in price. Hmmm, now the decision doesn't seem so hard does it?

the adrenaline will, at least felt like it, out do the smarty but not for towing. the edge juice w/attitude is a very good unit and comes with gauges. good luck with everything.

what programs are you guys running on your adrens, they 3000 is the best so for from what I have seen and I heard there is a 4000 also they must be just beta testing it though, but the different programs you download are alot different and I think they claim 180 hp for the adren not sure I might have to look it though

Go with the adrenaline,it comes with gauges to.It will be a lot faster on top end for smoking ricers.Not unless you want to smoke them off the start, go with a smarty.
