edge laggy? i have the hot unlock and it fuels hard...i have lag but i got a big single...were you pushing too much fuel? i doubt it but i know that my 240+ injectors and the box w/ low end settings all the way up put out the fire...never heard of the edge being laggy though...did you tap the vp with it?

Im running the powermax 3 now and im pretty pleased with it. it only fuels when there is boost so its laggy from the start but stacking it with a smarty is what i plan to do to fix that!

the tst comp is a clean running box! it builds great power, and stacks awesome with a smarty! too much fuel on the bottom will be from the smarty not the comp! it hooks to the map, injector pump wiring harness and a key on 12v source!

the adrenaline is pulls hard, but is not as smooth as the tst, smarty stack

With the smarty You don't really need the comp upgrade on the tst. The powermax 3 with remote and the smarty stack is about as smooth as it gets, off the line or top end either it just can't be beat.

hmmmm.....true, you don't need it, but i'd like to get the extra HP out of the COMP on the topend...

i will agree with ya though....even just have'n the EZ/TST PM3 stack, it's very smooth...

Corect Me if I am wrong, but doesn't the comp upgrade just raise the rev limiter? The Smarty does that also.

How much power does the PowerMax, PowerMax2, PowerMax3, and PowerMax Competition add?

The non adjustable PowerMax has a power level of 65 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque above stock at the ground. The non adjustable PowerMax2 adds 90 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque at the ground. The non adjustable PowerMax3 adds 120 hp and 360 torque at the ground.
The adjustable PowerMax3 is adjustable with a remote. Level 0 = stock power, 1 = 20 hp and 40 lb-ft above stock at the ground with each step up equaling about another 15 horsepower (tapering down at the higher levels) and 40 torque at the ground.



Power Level HP Torque

0 0 0

1 20 40

2 35 80

3 50 120

4 65 160 Max for stock automatic trans

5 80 200

6 90 240 Max for stock manual trans

7 100 280

8 110 320

9 120 360



A good rule of thumb is about 120/9 = about 13 HP increase per level.



The PMCE (Competition) adds 180 HP and 450 lb-ft Torque (on level 9) for the standard engine. The HO (High Output) engine (2001-2002) already has 245 HP and the PMCE (Competition) does not make as much of a difference and adds 80HP and 310 lb-ft of Torque.



The PM3 starts cutting back at 3000 RPM. The PMCE (Competition) starts cutting back at 4500 RPM.
