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
If you have used another tuner/programmer on your vehicle, you will need to
program back to stock and remove the device before using the Edge Products
Failure to return to stock may result in PCM failure or engine damage.
FORD Power Stroke 7.3 Liter
Caution: The Evolution employs carefully modified strategies that are designed to be
utilized on unmodified (stock) vehicles only.
Many aftermarket components such as cold air intake (CAI) kits, exhaust systems,
and throttle body spacers as well as forced induction systems (turbochargers,
superchargers, nitrous oxide, etc) alter the calculated airflow characteristics of the
engine. In addition, mechanical modifications to the engine such as displacement
changes, camshaft modification, and cylinder head modification may alter calculated
airflow characteristics.
Using any of these modifications (either alone or in any combination) in conjunction
with the Evolution is NOT RECOMMENDED as it may cause an excessively lean
condition which could result in engine damage.
Edge Products will not be responsible for any damages caused by using the
Evolution on a vehicle that has been modified from a stock configuration.
Programming your vehicle may expose existing defects in your vehicle’s PCM that
could disable your vehicle. It is advised that you do not program your vehicle in
remote locations in case of vehicle failure.
About the Evolution
IMPORTANT: Read all Safety, Warranty, and Installation Instructions
before installing this product. Read through these instructions completely so
that you understand each step prior to installation.
Congratulations on purchasing the Evolution by Edge Products, the leader in
diesel electronics and power gain technology. The following manual contains
information and instructions on the proper use of the Evolution. Please read
carefully before proceeding to program your vehicle.
Note: At the back of this manual, we have included commonly used
acronyms. This should help while using the Evolution.
Stock Program
The Evolution automatically makes a backup of your stock program from
your PCM before writing a new program onto your PCM. This assures that
you will have the stock program if/when you desire to reprogram your
vehicle to its original stock program.
We recommended that you return your vehicle’s computer to the stock
program prior to returning your vehicle to a service center. This will
eliminate the possibility of interfering with any diagnostic equipment.
FORD Power Stroke 7.3 Liter
Tow Program
WARNING Do not exceed your vehicle’s max GVWR as outlined in
the vehicle’s owner’s manual. Doing so may result in loss of vehicle control
and cause bodily injury.
This setting is the lowest power setting. It is designed to provide a significant
increase in horsepower and torque while still being safe enough to use for
towing. While it isn’t necessary, a modified exhaust system will help
improve overall performance and help reduce your EGT (exhaust gas
temperature) levels.
Race Program
If you plan to tow with this program, we strongly recommended that you
make appropriate modifications to your exhaust system and install an EGT
(exhaust gas temperature) gauge to aid in the prevention of potential damage
to your engine.
Note: This setting is legal in California only for racing vehicles which may
never be used upon a highway. For more information, consult a qualified
diesel mechanic.
Extreme Program
This program is not designed for towing. If you plan to tow, program your
vehicle to the Tow program. We strongly recommended that you make
appropriate modifications to your exhaust system and install an EGT
(exhaust gas temperature) gauge to aid in the prevention of damage to your
engine. This setting is legal in California only for racing vehicles which may
never be used upon a highway. For more information, consult a qualified
diesel mechanic.
Power Gains
The following power gains are representative of an actual test vehicle in
factory stock configuration. Power gains may vary from vehicle to vehicle
depending on model year, engine condition, fuel quality or geographic
location. In addition, modifications to the engine, turbocharger and/or fuel
delivery system may significantly affect power output.

Torque Gains
Level 1 (Tow)
Level 2 (Race)
Level 3 (Extreme)
WARNING Do not combine, or “stack” chips (modules) to gain more
horsepower. The chips could be incompatible and result in powertrain
failure or create dangerous conditions (such as adverse running conditions,
high idle, DTC codes, etc.) leading to a serious or fatal accident.
The Evolution is also a powerful diagnostics tool. You can view any
diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) your vehicle may have, which in turn allows
you to fix them. It will also allow you to turn off that annoying “Check
Engine” light when the problem has been addressed (no more expensive trips
to the dealer for a diagnostics scan).
0-60 and Quarter Mile time
WARNING Do not use the Performance Tests feature to break any
traffic laws. Perform these tests only where they are legal and safe.
Another feature often only found on the Edge Product monitors, is the ability
to determine your quarter mile times as well as your 0-60 times.

Update Required:
It is possible that there may be a vehicle that is not currently in our database.
(A result of a vehicle getting the latest file update from a dealer for example.)
When this occurs, the message “Update Required” appears immediately after
storing the Stock calibration. The following display shows an example:
If this should occur, please contact Edge Products for a return authorization
number (RMA number) and return the unit to Edge Products. We will extract
your original calibration from the unit, then reprogram the unit and return it
to you at no charge.
FORD Power Stroke 7.3 Liter
Programming Interrupted:
If at any time the programming should be interrupted for whatever reason,
the Evolution should be able to completely recover the PCM. Simply
reconnect the programming cable into the Diagnostic Port of the vehicle and
restart the programming process. In order to simplify the recovery process,
the Evolution will only program the original calibration and you will not be
able to select any performance options. This is to ensure the complete,
original calibration is returned to the PCM. Once recovery is complete, the
Evolution function will return to normal.
The diagnostics scanner built into your Evolution is a powerful tool that
allows you to view and clear trouble codes on your vehicle. Trouble codes
are the messages your vehicle’s computer logs to let you know there may be
something wrong with your vehicle. The “Check Engine” light on your dash
is activated by the presence of some trouble codes.
If you selected Diagnostics from the initial option screen after plugging in
the Evolution, the screen displays the following message:

If you have no trouble codes, the following screen appears:
Clearing Codes
If you want to clear the trouble codes on your vehicle (trouble codes are what
makes your “check engine” light come on) select the Clear option.
CAUTION: If you do not address the issue that originally caused the DTC,
the DTC will set again and the “Check Engine” light will come back on. If a
trouble code is set repeatedly and does not clear, the user must take action to
define and correct the problem. Failure to correct the problem could result
in powertrain damage. The user must become familiar with the codes and the
potential problems if left uncorrected.
FORD Power Stroke 7.3 Liter
WARNING Some Codes are set as a result of using aftermarket
products. Some trouble codes may have safety implications. Do not clear
codes unless you are familiar with the code and concerns if not corrected.
Use only when necessary, and address all trouble code warnings.
After selecting the Clear option, any current trouble codes are cleared from
your vehicle’s PCM and the “check engine” light goes out. The screen looks
like the following:
Data Stream Monitor
The Evolution also monitors 5 PIDs (Parameter IDentification), often called
‘Data Streams’ from your truck. These values might be useful to monitor,
particularly the transmission fluid temperature.

 TFT Deg. F
- Transmission Fluid Temperature in Degrees
 Line Pr. PSI
- Transmission MAIN line pressure (this is
controlled by the PCM)
 Exh. B/P PSI - Exhaust Backpressure reading before turbo in PSI
Performance Testing
WARNING Do not use the Performance Tests feature to break any
traffic laws. Perform these tests only where they are legal and safe.
The Evolution allows you to test the performance of your vehicle by timing
the 0-60 and the quarter mile times. You also have the option to save and
recall one of your 1/4 mile performance runs.
NOTE: It is helpful to remember these might not be results you would
receive from actual races. Modified tire sizes and gear ratios as well as tire
slippage can cause the speedometer to read incorrectly causing slight
miscalculations in the displayed results.

Tip: Programming your vehicle may expose existing defects in your
vehicle’s PCM that could disable your vehicle. It is advised that you
do not program your vehicle in remote locations in case of failure.
Tip: Keep in mind that the Evolution is a high performance product and that
not all vehicles deliver the exact same power output when
programmed with the Evolution. It is recommended that you select a
program that will best fit your needs. Whether towing, or traveling
long distances at high speeds, choose your power level wisely and
keep in mind the condition and tolerances of your vehicle when
selecting a suitable power level.
 NO DISPLAY WITH KEY ON – If you should get no display when
turning the key on, check all of your fuses and make sure your battery
is fully charged. Disconnect and reconnect the OBD-II cable to ensure
the Evolution restarts properly. If the unit restarts but fails to stay on,
or fails to turn on when the key is on, there is most likely a
communications issue. Contact Edge Products Technical Support for
further assistance.
 NO START – If you experience a “No-Start” condition after
programming your PCM, return to the Power Programming menu and
select Return to Stock. This will allow the Evolution to reprogram the
PCM with the factory calibration and recover the PCM. If, after
reprogramming, you still have a “No-Start” condition, contact Edge
Products Technical Support. A member of our support team can
further instruct you on possible recovery procedures.
FORD Power Stroke 7.3 Liter
 THEFT LIGHT (on Excursions) - If the theft light flashes rapidly
after programming and the vehicle won't start, the Passive Anti-theft
system (PATS) will need to be reset. To reset the PATS, perform the
following steps:
1. Turn the key on, but do not attempt to start the vehicle.
2. Wait for the theft light to quit flashing rapidly. This should take
about 45 seconds, after which the THEFT light will flash
multiple times about every 3 seconds.
3. Turn the key off and remove the key from the ignition for 30
4. Insert the key and turn the ignition to the ON position.
5. The THEFT light should illuminate for about 5 seconds and then
go out.
6. Continue to start the vehicle normally.

Many of our customers ask, “Will your product void my vehicle’s manufacturer’s warranty?” While
the answer is straightforward from a legal standpoint, it’s important to educate our customers (and
all aftermarket consumers) on some industry realities and offer some common sense precautions
to minimize your risk. Edge is committed to providing quality products that are safe to use. Our
products do not cause damage to a vehicle when used as intended. Please keep in mind that
towing in anything higher than the towing level and hard driving in race or extreme performance
levels is not recommended.
Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act.
The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the
dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle
actually caused the problem in question.
However, the reality is that many dealerships have been known to void warranties on vehicles that
use aftermarket products as a matter of policy. This applies in particular to those aftermarket
products that produce horsepower, such as performance enhancement “chips,” modified intake
manifolds, or aftermarket exhaust systems, regardless of product brand.
You have strong legal protection as a consumer in regard to your vehicle’s warranty. However,
Edge strongly recommends you always disconnect and remove your module/programmer and
monitor when you take your vehicle to a dealer for warranty work. In addition, leaving the product
connected may affect dealer diagnostic analysis and CAN tool functions. Edge makes every effort
to produce product that can be easily removed. NOTE: Even if you disconnect your unit, your
dealer can detect the use of any programmer—even if the unit has been removed.
Thank you for purchasing the Evolution by Edge Products, LLC for the Ford 7.3 Powerstroke
Diesel®. The Evolution programmer has been developed and produced from the highest quality
materials available to ensure the best performance for years to come. If you have any concerns or
questions, please contact us.
Note: 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).
