Edge Products Juice with Attitude

A few months ago we needed to free up some ponies in the Duramax diesel engine of our ’05 Chevy Silverado. We accomplished this by installing the Corsa diesel performance exhaust system, as well as the Advanced Flow Engineering (AFE) performance intake and air filter system-both designed to help the truck breathe easier. The results were impressive to say the least-freeing up a full second of time in the 0-60 range – but the brute-power bug bit us, hard.

The next logical step to feed our horsepower habit was to look into a diesel performance programmer. Keep in mind that squeezing power out of a turbo-charged diesel isn’t all that unusual anymore, particularly when it involves reprogramming the computer system. There are a number of companies out there that can squeeze hundreds of horsepower out of a diesel engine, but we were looking for someone that could do it reliably, safely and intelligently.

Our search led us to the doorstep of Edge Products -a slightly lesser-known company in the diesel performance industry, but one that makes highly sophisticated, reliable and very intelligent products for your diesel performance needs. After a conversation with the technicians at Edge Products, we decided that a Juice Control Module and an “Attitude” system controller were the right instruments for our “operation.” The power statistics were as impressive as many other reprogrammers on the market, but the foresight of the system designers is what really sold us. The Juice with Attitude performance combo is designed to provide the driver with five power settings that can be adjusted while driving, but it’s done in a way that is specifically designed to protect the motor and drive train.

Before we get into the performance gains, it’s important to know that the Juice with Attitude performance combo is designed to provide the driver with five power settings that can be adjusted while driving, but it’s done in a way that is specifically designed to protect the motor and drive train.

The Juice with Attitude combination provides a vast array of configuration and display functions that enable you to configure, tune, and tweak your ride just the way you’d like. There are also a series of settings within the Attitude module that allow you to set maximum points of interest to protect your engine and drivetrain. For you racers out there who throw caution to the wind, you can disable just about every function. Below is an outline of the display functions that can be set up, as well as the settings, configurations and performance tests that can be changed also.
