AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS AND YOUR VEHICLE’S WARRANTY
Many of our customers ask, “Will your product void my vehicle
manufacturer’s warranty?” While the answer is straightforward from a legal
standpoint, we also want to educate our customers (and after-market
consumers) on some industry realities and offer some common sense
precautions to minimize your risk.
Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by The Federal
Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on
your car and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your
warranty unless they can prove that whatever modifications you have added
to your car actually caused the problem. Please keep in mind that towing in
anything higher than level two and hard driving in levels four and five are
not recommended.
While as a consumer, you have strong legal protection with regards to your
vehicle’s warranty, there is also a practical reality that different automotive
manufacturers and dealers have greatly varying views on aftermarket
products, in particular those that produce horsepower, such as performance
enhancement chips, modified intake manifolds, or aftermarket exhaust
systems. There are dealers and manufacturers out there that will use the
presence of a horsepower upgrade to void your vehicle’s warranty. They
will do this regardless of whose product you are using. Any aftermarket
company that does not acknowledge this is misleading you.
The bottom line is that while the law protects the consumer and provides for
enforcement of the warranty, it is very difficult for most people to hire an
attorney and fight a voided warranty. Edge recommends that you always
disconnect and remove your module and monitor when you take your
vehicle to a dealer for warranty work in order not to interfere with
Diagnostic equipment.
This warranty is void for any new products purchased through
auction websites. Warranty is valid only for new products purchased
through Authorized Dealers (proof of purchase required for all
warranty claims).

IMPORTANT NOTE:
All Edge modules and programmers are built to operate with OEM
calibrations. When you take your vehicle to a service center they may, by
your request or otherwise, update your vehicles calibrations. Therefore it is
important that you return your vehicle to stock before taking it in for
service. Edge updates its active products (i.e. those currently being
manufactured) to work effectively with updated OEM calibrations.
However, this process can take some time as Edge is not always made aware
of calibration changes made by the OEM. In the case of discontinued
products, Edge cannot ensure that your unit will work effectively if you take
your vehicle to a dealership and you are given, by your request or otherwise,
a new calibration (This only applies to discontinued products).

About the Chevy/GM Juice
Thank you for purchasing the Power Edge Juice Module for the Chevy/GM
Duramax Diesel®. The Juice module has been developed and produced
from the highest quality materials available to ensure the best performance
for years to come. If you have any questions, please contact Edge Products.
We will be very happy to answer your questions about our complete product
line.
The Juice Module is an add-on Engine Control Module (ECM) for the
Duramax® Engine that offers additional features not available with the
factory setup. Since it is an add on ECM, it uses all the factory data, and then
enhances the factory settings to optimize your truck’s performance. These
features include:
• Engine temperature monitoring and power increase from the Juice module
as engine reaches operating temperature
• Four selectable power level settings for Normal and Tow/Haul
transmission modes (5 on-the-fly selectable power settings with the Attitude)
• Transmission slip monitoring - If any transmission slip is detected power is
decreased to eliminate transmission slippage
• Smart power control during torque converter lockup to allow a smooth,
easy torque converter clutch lock-up
The Juice module offers a large power increase over stock throughout the
rpm range, but the power is most noticeable in the midrange rpm’s. This
greatly improves drivability and towing performance. Transmission
downshifting is greatly reduced, especially while passing or towing.
The Juice also regulates power delivery and timing based on engine
temperature. This means that while the engine temperature is below 160° F
no additional fueling or timing is delivered. At 160° F the module begins
delivering fuel at 50% of the calculated additional fuel, and the percentage
increases as the engine temperature increases, until at full engine
temperature (174° F) the Juice delivers 100% of the calculated additional
fuel. At full engine temperature the Juice also starts modifying timing.

Chevy/GM Juice Getting Connected
Supplied Items:
1. Power Edge Juice Module
2. Three Wire Ties
3. Two Velcro Strips
Required Tools:
None
Please read these instructions completely so that you understand each step
prior to installation.
The Power Edge Juice Module
This picture shows the Power Edge Juice Module with the harness cable and
Edge Attitude Display wiring (Attitude instructions on pg. 13)
Connected
This cable is
where the
optional Edge
Attitude Display
module gets
connected.
These two
connectors are
EGT
thermocouple
connections.
8
Harness Connector – Your Juice module may be equipped with a
harness that can be disconnected at the Juice module itself (See figure 1A).
It is important to make sure that your juice module is always connected to
the harness when the wiring harness is connected to the truck, otherwise the
truck may not run properly, or may trip engine “codes.”
FIGURE 1A
Mounting the Juice Module
1. The Power Edge Juice Module can mount on top of or to the side of the
black plastic fuse box cover located on the driver’s side fender. Adhere the
module using the supplied Velcro, allowing enough harness movement for
removal of the cover.
Connecting the Harness
2. Disconnect both stock
connectors by squeezing the ears
on the backside of the connector
and pulling the gray lever.
3. Gently insert the Juice
connectors and lock in place with
the gray levers, and then gently
connect the stock connectors to the
other end of the Juice connectors.
9
Notice: Use caution when inserting connector bodies. If the connector does
not slide smoothly, remove the connector, inspect the pins, and retry
installation.
Final Inspection
4. Recheck all connections for a properly secure installation. Using the
supplied wire ties, secure the wiring harness to prevent possible damage.
5. Start the engine. The engine should start and run like a stock truck. If the
engine does not start or run properly, turn off the motor, remove the keys
from the ignition, then remove the juice module and inspect the pins inside
both connectors. Straighten pins or clear foreign material from the pins and
connector surfaces, then re-install the connectors. If failure conditions still
exist, contact your dealer or Edge Products, LLC. When trying to restart,
make sure that the key has been turned off for at least 10 seconds before
cranking the engine.
10
Using the Juice
Adjusting Power Levels
The Juice has four power levels. The Attitude module allows five levels.
The Juice module was designed to allow the user to select a power level for
Normal operating mode, and either the same or a different power level for
Tow/Haul mode.
NOTE: If you have the Attitude installed, the following procedure does
NOT apply. Power levels are changed using the Attitude.
1. Set the Parking Brake
2. Turn key on without starting the engine (engine must not be running).
3. Select the desired transmission mode to set the power level for (Normal or
Tow/Haul).
4. Place gear selector in the gear corresponding to desired power level (D=4,
3=3, 2=2, 1=1, R=stock).
5. Press accelerator to the floor two times, completely releasing the pedal
each time.
6. Return gear selector to Park and start the engine.
7. Press the Tow/Haul button twice. This causes the Juice module to
“remember” the level setting for the mode.
Power Level Confirmation
To confirm the power level that is selected:
1. Place gear selector in Park with your foot off of the accelerator while
engine is idling
2. Set the Parking Brake
3. Select Normal or Tow/Haul mode, depending upon the transmission mode
power setting you wish to confirm
4. Place gear selector to reverse, neutral, reverse, then back to park. P-R-NR-P
5. The engine will rev to coincide with the power level selected, revving 4
times for level 4, 3 times for level 3, and so on
11
It is recommended that you use the Tow/Haul transmission mode while
towing. This provides torque converter lockup in gears 2-5 reducing
transmission heat, and also raising the shift rpm threshold to keep the rpm’s
higher. It is recommended that you maintain engine rpm above 1800 while
towing. While towing, the Juice module allows the engine to pull many
grades in the mid rpm’s rather than having to downshift and pull them in the
high rpm’s. This provides for lower EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature) with
the same power output. EGT rises significantly with rpm--especially above
2500. It is highly recommended that you install an EGT gauge while using
the Power Edge Juice. You can also opt to limit the EGT with the Attitude
monitor to maintain lower EGT levels.
It is recommended while towing you use power levels 1
or 2 due to EGT and transmission stress

Power Gains
The following power gains are representative of an actual test vehicle.
These gains were measured on a Super Flow Dyno at an altitude of 4400 ft
above sea level, and represent power delivered to the rear wheels of the test
truck. The only modification made to the test truck was the addition of the
Power Edge Juice module. Power gains may vary somewhat on a different
vehicle or in different geographic settings.

Making Sense of It All
This section is designed to help you
To understand how the additional power will change your driving
experience as well as help you figure out what power level will best suit
your driving style;
The first thing you will probably notice, especially if this is your first time
driving a diesel truck with a performance module, is that this is a whole
different animal. You will experience more power, quicker take-offs, better
passing and acceleration, and even better fuel economy. Power level one is
specifically designed to maximize fuel economy improvements. (if you can put
off the little guy on your shoulder telling you to ‘step on it hard’).
If you are towing, the beauty of the extra power the Edge module delivers is
that not only will be able to maintain speed going up a hill, but the added
power will also keep you in a higher gear, so your transmission will not keep
“hunting” for lower gears. We recommend level one or level two for towing
applications. Only use level two if you are towing a light load.
The remaining power levels are designed to match fueling with any
additional upgrades you may have done to your vehicle. Level 3 is as far as
you should go on a stock truck and should never be used while towing.
Level 3 is designed to take advantage of the built-in safety margins the
manufacture needs to add in order to make sure your vehicle can tow at its
maximum capacity. When driven responsibly, and used with an EGT gauge
or the Attitude monitor, level 3 will not stress the stock engine or
transmission as long as you are not towing.
Levels four and five are race levels and are designed to be used with
upgraded drive trains. If you have modified your injectors, upgraded the
transmission, changed turbos or performed other similar enhancements,
levels four and five will match fueling to the additional performance created
by these upgrades. On a stock truck, it is possible to overstress the engine
and transmission while driving in levels four and five.
14
EGTs: What they mean and why
EGT stands for exhaust gas temperature, and is the single most important
indicator of how a diesel engine is performing. Unlike a gasoline motor, a
diesel motor will continue to make power as more fuel is added. As more
fuel is added, heat will be generated until the motor just gets too hot and
things start to melt. This is a situation you want to avoid. Exhaust gas
temperature is the ideal measurement of how hot the motor is, since
temperature fluctuations in exhaust gas are almost instantaneous. Just so
you know, it is possible to generate excessive EGT on a stock truck,
particularly if you are towing. This is why we always recommend installing
an EGT gauge and we built the Attitude monitor, which monitors EGT and
will automatically defuel your truck when EGTs get too high.
In our experience 1350 degrees is about as high as you want to let your
EGTs go. Keep in mind, the stress on your engine created by the heat is a
function of both temperature and time. A brief spike to 1400 that lasts a
second is not that big a deal. Pulling up a hill for several minutes at 1400 is
far worse.
As you drive your truck in the various power settings, keep your eye on the
EGTs. Depending on how you drive and where you drive, you may find a
particular power level is more suitable to your power needs.
The Juice Module and your Transmission
The automatic transmission has a fluid-filled clutch-like device called a
torque converter. This device uses the spinning motion of the motor to drive
the transmission which drives your wheels. As the truck speed stabilizes,
the torque converter engages a mechanical connection which locks the two
halves of the torque converter, so the output shaft is going the same speed as
the input shaft. This mechanical linking of the two halves is called
Transmission Lock-up. If the motor produces too much power, this
mechanical lock-up can start to slip. When this slippage occurs, the Juice
module reduces the power output to allow the transmission to function
properly. This is a great future that provides an extra level of protection for
your vehicle. Please keep in mind however, that if you run in level 4 or 5,
the additional power is so great that it is possible to overstress a stock
Allison transmission if you drive too hard.
Technical Support
Edge takes a great deal of pride in the quality of our customer service. If
you have any questions or concerns about your Juice module, please feel
free to call us at 888-360-3343.
15
Transmission Relearning
The Allison transmission is a “Smart” transmission. That means that it pays
attention to how smoothly the transmission is changing gears, and modifies
the shifting to improve drivability. When the motor delivers more power (by
adding the Juice module), the transmission has to ‘re-learn’ how to shift.
After first installing the Juice module, you may notice rough shifting. The
best way to re-teach the transmission is to set the truck in the power level
you will be using most of the time. Then set out to drive, some city, some
highway, varying the driving and the speed. Make sure that you shift
through each gear 20 to 30 times. A good rule of thumb would be 100 to
200 miles. Remember that the truck must go through each gear 20 to 30
times. You will notice the shifting becoming better, and your truck
responding better to the additional power as you go through the learning
cycle.

Chevy/GM Attitude Getting Connected
The Attitude monitor connects under the hood to the Edge Juice module.
Follow these steps to install the Attitude:
1. Place your Attitude monitor on the dash of your vehicle approximately
where you want it installed and, with the driver’s door open, feed the cable
through the open door, and into the engine compartment via the slot near the
hood hinge.
2. Determine where you want to attach the Attitude mounting bracket and
insert it into your dashboard. The bracket fits well in the seam of the dash
board by separating the seam slightly and sliding in the bottom portion of the
bracket until it snaps into place (see figure 1). The following pictures
demonstrate how to best mount the Attitude with the new bracket.
The bracket fits well in
the seam of the dash
board by separating the
seam slightly and sliding
in the bottom portion of
the bracket until it snaps
into place.
Figure 1
After the bracket is
mounted, use the supplied
two sided tape to secure
the Attitude to the bracket
Figure 2
3. Connect the Attitude to your Edge Juice module by snapping together the
cables with the green connections (see figure 3). Secure any excess cable to
prevent entanglement with moving engine parts.
20
The Attitude cable
attaches to the Edge
Juice module under
the hood.
This is the EGT
cable that gets
tapped into the
exhaust manifold.
This connection
only exists on older
Juice modules that
were modified to
accept the Attitude.
Figure 3
4. It is necessary to tap a small hole into your exhaust manifold to insert the
EGT sensor. The EGT probe must be mounted before the turbo to
operate properly. Drill the hole using a 5/ 16 or a 21/64” drill bit, then tap
it with an 1/8” NPT tap (see tip on figure 5). Once the hole is drilled and
tapped, run the motor at idle for 10 to 15 seconds to clear the few remaining
shavings from the manifold. Once the engine has been run, screw in the
brass fitting and insert the EGT sensor by sliding it into the hole (see figure
4) and tightening the back end brass fittings.

Juice Configuration
The Attitude allows you to configure the Juice module in a variety of ways.
To change the Juice configurations, perform the following steps:
1. Press the [Menu] button until the Setup screen appears:
2. Select the Juice Configuration option and press [Enter]. The
following screen appears:
3. Select the desired option and press [Enter]. The following are
descriptions of each of the Juice Configuration options available:
Juice Configuration Options
• Max EGT Set Point
• Shift Defuel Setting
• Low Boost Fueling
Adjust
• Tire Size
31
Max EGT Set Point
As the exhaust gas temperature approaches the EGT set point, a percentage
of defueling occurs. This percentage is represented by the backdown value
you can display on the screen. The percentage represents the amount of
defueling that is occurring due to the max EGT value being reached. In
other words, fueling is decreased at higher percentages. When this value
reaches 100% the fueling delivered by the Juice module will be totally
disabled. However, stock fueling will allow the truck to reach its stock EGT
levels which may exceed the preset Max EGT Set Point which you set in the
Attitude.
Important Note: Any other high performance modifications in addition to
the Juice can allow the fueling to exceed stock EGT levels even after 100%
defueling by the Attitude is reached, which may result in detrimental EGT
levels.
The backdown
percent represents
the amount of
defueling that is
occurring when the
max EGT level is
reached.
After selecting the Max EGT Set Point option from the Juice Configuration
screen (previous steps), the following screen appears:
2. Change the Max EGT set point by pressing the up and down arrow
keys to select the maximum temperature that you want the exhaust gas
temperature to reach, then pressing [Enter]. When the exhaust gas
temperature reaches this value, the power delivery will be retarded so
as not to allow the temperature to exceed this set value.
32
Disabling Backdown at Set EGT
There are times you may want to disable the EGT backdown feature for a
limited period such as in a competition setting. For whatever the reason you
can disable the EGT backdown for a period of 1-120 minutes.
Warning: Disabling this feature could lead to dangerous EGT
levels.
To remove the option that backs down the power at a set EGT point, perform
the following steps:
1. Make sure the Attitude is set to view the EGT level as one of the
engine parameters.
2. When you are viewing EGT as one of the engine parameters, press
[Enter] twice quickly and the following screen will appear:
This number is the
number of minutes
you want to
disable the EGT
backdown feature.
3. The number on this screen represents the number of minutes the EGT
Backdown feature will be disabled. Press the up or down arrow keys
to select the desired number of minutes you would like this feature
disabled. (The number of minutes you do NOT want your power
decreased because of high EGT levels.)

Low Boost Fueling / Low End Responsiveness
Adjustment
After selecting the Low Boost Fueling Adj option from the Juice
Configuration screen (previous steps), the following screen appears:
Select the power level for which you want to adjust the low boost fueling
and press Enter. When you press Enter, the following screen appears
allowing you to select the Low Boost Fueling Adjustment level that will be
unique to that level and every time you select that power level the fueling
adjustment will be set to what you chose on this screen.
Adjusting the fuel at low boost allows you to adjust the response and smoke
output before the turbocharger builds boost pressure in the intake. Select
level 1 for the lowest level of response and smoke at low boost, and select
level 5 for the highest level. You will see a significant change in vehicle
response and smoke depending upon which level you select. To leave this
screen, press the [Menu] button multiple times.

Shift Defuel Setting
With this option the amount of fuel delivered to the engine during the shift
point is reduced—thus decreasing torque during the shift point. This will
cause less wear on the transmission—and result in overall improved
drivability.
Transmission Setup Option Descriptions
Defueling at locked (when the torque converter is locked) shift points
reduces the torque output by the engine and allows the torque converter
clutch to lock after the shift.
Defuel all locked shifts
With this option, when the torque converter is locked the amount of fuel at
the shift point is reduced—thus decreasing torque during the shift point and
allowing the torque converter clutch to lock. This will cause less wear on
the transmission—and result in overall improved drivability.
Defuel 4-5 locked shift
This option provides a decrease in torque output at the shift point between
gears 4 and 5, thus decreasing torque during the shift point and allowing the
torque converter clutch to lock. This will cause less wear on the
transmission—and result in overall improved drivability.
No defuel on shifts
This option provides no decrease in fuel during shift points. Power will be
delivered throughout all of the shift points resulting in quicker more
responsive shifting.

Tire Size
If your vehicle has stock tires, there is no need to change the value on this
screen. After selecting the Tire Size option from the Juice Configuration
screen (previous steps), the following screen appears:
The numbers on this screen represent the circumference of your tire. Adjust
the tire size by pressing the up/down arrow keys. The table below will help
you determine your wheel circumference by matching your tire size with the
sizes listed. For example, if your tire size is 285/ 65/ 18R, the value
(circumference) you enter into the Attitude is 2599.0. Another alternative is
to measure your tire’s circumference by marking your tire and rolling it one
complete revolution and measuring the distance then multiply the inches by
25.4 (i.e., 91.3 inches x 25.4 = 2319.0 mm).
