IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR VEHICLE’S
WARRANTY — PLEASE READ!
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
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 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.
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
level two and hard driving in levels four and five are not
recommended. 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. Any aftermarket
company that does not acknowledge this is misleading you.
Although you have strong legal protection as a consumer in regard to
your vehicle’s warranty, the practical reality is that taking legal action
against a dealer or manufacturer to fight a voided warranty is a costly
and time-intensive process. For this reason, Edge strongly
recommends you always disconnect and remove your
module/programmer and monitor when you take your vehicle to
a dealer for warranty work. It is also for this reason that Edge
focuses the bulk of their product development efforts on producing
modules and digital monitors that can be easily removed. Even if you
remove your unit, you should note that dealers can detect the use of
ANY programmer — Evolution or otherwise — even if the unit has
been removed.

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).
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.

About the Dodge
Mileage Max
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Edge Mileage Max for the Dodge Cummins®
5.9L Diesel. The Mileage Max 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 Mileage Max is an add-on Engine Control Module (ECM) for the
Cummins® 5.9L Engine that offers additional features not available
on a stock engine. 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.
• The Mileage Max was developed and tested buy Edge’s engineers
using a mustang dynamometer to duplicate typical driving conditions.
Both input and return fuel lines from the test truck were run into a
separate tank containing a known quantity of fuel placed on an
extremely accurate digital scale. With the truck fully warmed, the
cruise control was set to 70 MPH in overdrive and a constant load
applied to simulate highway driving. The weight of the consumed fuel
was then subtracted from the original weight and converted into MPG.
• Repeated test results showed the Mileage Max delivered up to 7%
improvement in fuel economy (depending on year and model of the
vehicle) and up to 35 more horsepower. In order to ensure accuracy
several tests were performed and an average made with and without
the Mileage Max using the same conditions on the same dyno. For a
more detailed description of the procedure, go to
www.edgeproducts.com.
The Mileage Max offers a power increase over stock throughout the RPM
range, but the power is most noticeable in midrange RPM’s. This greatly
improves drivability and towing performance. Transmission downshifting is
greatly reduced, especially while passing or towing.

Dodge Cummins 5.9 Mileage Max Installation
Supplied Items:
1. Edge Mileage Max Module
2. Three Wire Ties
3. Two Velcro Strips
Tools Required:

Please read these instructions completely so that you understand each step
prior to installation.
Module Installation
The Mileage Max can mount on the flat black plastic fuse box cover located
in the engine compartment on the driver’s side fender. Attach the module to
the truck using the supplied VELCRO® strips, allowing enough harness
movement for removal of the cover.
Harness Connector – Your Mileage Max module will be equipped with a
harness that can be disconnected at the module itself (See figure 1A). It is
important to make sure that your Mileage Max 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.”

drivers side of the engine in the wiring harness near the power steering
pump
• A plug is installed in the data link connector on the truck to resist
corrosion, remove this and install the supplied connector.

How to Use Your Edge Mileage Max
Using your Edge Mileage Max Module
This section is to help you use the Mileage Max module effectively and add
enjoyment to your diesel truck experience.
The first thing you will probably notice especially if this is your first time
driving a diesel truck with a performance module is that you will experience
more power, quicker take-offs, better passing and acceleration and above all,
better fuel economy.
Towing
What about towing? What can this do for you when you are towing? The
great thing about the Mileage Max and all the other Edge® power modules
is that they were created for towing. That is why Edge built them, and why
we keep making them better. Let’s assume that in a stock truck you would
pull your 5,000lb load up the grades in 3rd gear. Your EGT (Exhaust Gas
Temperature) may run at about 1200° F. With the Mileage Max module on,
you have effectively increased the horsepower by 35, and the torque by 77
Foot-pounds. That is like adding a fifth horse to pull a four horse carriage.
That is representative of how much your power has increased. That means
you will be running at a lower rpm and your EGT has decreased. And best
of all you are going faster and the truck may have already shifted into 4th
Exhaust Gas Temperature
EGTs readings tell you how hot the exhaust gases are in the exhaust
manifold coming from the engine. This is important because you shouldn’t
let them run for long periods above 1350 F. If you do see them this high you
may notice that the instant you let out of the throttle, the EGTs will
immediately start to decrease. So this means that if you are getting up to or
exceeding this limit you may need to ease up off the throttle a bit to bring
those temps down and keep them in a safe operating range.
