    • 2003 - 2013 Dodge Cummins

    The Tunes

    The Edge Evolution CTS2 comes with up to 5 preset tunes. Depending on your vehicle's make and model, the programmer includes the following tunes:

    • Transmission only increases the life of your transmission (only available on certain makes/models)
    • Economy improves your MPGs when used for your everyday driving
    • Towing better performance for towing/fuel economy
    • Performance 2nd highest power setting
    • Extreme highest power setting

    Within each tune, you can make your own adjustments, depending on your needs. You can use previously set adjustments, or you can restore your truck to its factory settings. Some of the features you can modify include (but are not limited to)

    • Changing your tire size to get a true reading on your speedometer
    • Changing your gear ratio (for aftermarket gearing)
    • Setting the speed limiter higher or lower than the factory setting
    • Raising or lowering your shift points and rev limiters, depending on your application
    • Adjusting your shift firmness harder or softer for your comfort
    • Adjusting torque for local terrain
    • Changing the parameters of your fuel pressure: higher for more acceleration and lower for better fuel economy

    The Display

    The Evolution CTS2 includes an easy-to-navigate menu with touch-screen capability. It has a quick menu accessed by dragging down from the top of the screen. This allows you to view notifications and change your background instantly. This programmer has not one, but two home screens, which you can move through with a swipe of your finger.

    Your display is entirely adjustable so that you can set different backgrounds and color schemes for each home screen. You can change the background images to preset pictures available on the device, or you can upload your own photos.

    The Edge Evolution comes with preset colors and a color wheel (to make your own color combinations) for your background and gauges. You can also set the gauges to measure specific parameters to track your vehicle's performance, and you can get these readings in either US or metric units of measure. These include (but aren't limited to):

    • Mass airflow sensor
    • MPH
    • Engine coolant temperature
    • RPMs
    • Engine Oil Pressure
    • Intake Air Temp Manifold
    • Battery voltage
    • Calibrate Pitch, Roll, and G-Force Gauges* (Google Note: I'm not sure if this would go here)
    • Enter tire size (if changed from stock) for correct speed and MPG tracking

    You can also create custom alarms for maintenance or temperature issues. These are also completely customizable: you can change how long the alarm goes off and how the notification displays on your screen. You can set reminders for regular maintenance like oil changes and air filters, or you can create alerts to watch EGTs, coolant and oil temp, among others.

    If you do a lot of traveling at night, the ambient light sensor will dim the screen at night to avoid night blindness. You can change how much it dims, depending on your comfort level. If you don't need to monitor your vehicle's performance during your travels, you can always use the time-out feature to turn the menu off when you aren't using it.

    The back of the monitor also features a video input for installing a backup camera..

    DIY Performance Testing

    The Edge Evolution CTS2's Performance Testing feature allows you to see the improvements of the tune in real-life scenarios. Using the data collected from the tests, you can compare your truck's performance stock vs. tune. These results are stored in your device, and they can be uploaded to your computer for review.

    The Evolution CTS2 includes the following performance tests:

    • 0-60 measures the performance/output of your engine when traveling from 0-60mph
    • Quarter Mile - measures the performance/output of your engine when traveling a quarter mile
    • Horsepower measures your horsepower during a driving test. You'll have to enter your vehicle's weight to measure your HP accurately.

    Always remember to obey all traffic laws when completing your performance testing; start your test on a closed course or a racetrack for safety reasons.

    Data Logging

    The Data Logging option lets you set what parameters and performance testing data to save in its record log. You can view these data on your device, or you can upload them to your computer to observe long-term trends.

    The data logging feature only saves a certain amount of data, so you'll have to back up your data before you reach the storage limit. The MyStyle software will store and organize your information so that you can access it later.


    Instead of bringing your truck in for costly diagnostic tests, you can run them yourself with the Edge Evolution CTS2. The programmer allows you to read and clear DTCs whenever it detects a potential issue with your vehicle. Some of these codes have listings and explanations, so you can most likely do the work yourself (saving yourself a ton of money, if it's a simple fix). Some truck models (mostly Ford and Chevys) allow you to clear these codes on the fly, but you may need to have your Dodge parked (with the key on and the engine off) to clear the code.

    Another valuable diagnostic parameter available for specific GM/Chevy models is the ability to check injector balance rates. This can help you find a weak or a bad injector before it causes more permanent damage.

    GM Diesels (2001-2013) have transmissions that "learn" your driving style through the throttle pedal and engine sensors. The Transmission Relearn option in the Edge Evolution CTS2 helps your transmission adjust to your driving style when you upload a new tune.

    Maintenance Manager

    The Evolution also gives you the option to set maintenance reminders. You can schedule an alarm to go off a certain number of miles before the maintenance is due. These alerts can remind you of preventative maintenance measures, such as changing your oil, air filters, or engine coolant.

    Does it offer Bluetooth/Mobile App Functionality?

    The Edge Evolution CTS2 does not offer Bluetooth or mobile app capabilities.

    Can I use the Edge Evolution CTS2 with EFI Live?

    The Evolution isn't compatible with EFI Live.

    Does it offer €˜on-the-fly' adjustments? (Can it be adjusted while driving?)

    While the standard CTS2 module cannot change tunes on-the-fly, the new Shift-On-The-Fly (SOTF) Accessory allows this. The system utilizes standard selection methods used by other tuners which also allows the use of custom tunes!

    Do I need to leave the Edge Evolution CTS2 plugged in all the time?

    No you don't need to leave the CTS2 plugged in. If you want to change your tunes, you can use the Evolution to do so. Once this is finished, you can unplug it and store it until you want to change tunes again. However, if you leave the Evolution plugged in, you can use the gauges to monitor several parameters, assist with driving more economically, and more.

    Does it support DPF Deletes?

    The Edge Evolution CTS2 does not support DPF Deletes. Edge Products complies with all emissions standards, and it doesn't manufacture any equipment to delete DPF, EGR, or alter emissions equipment.

    The CTS2 does provide the ability to manually regen your DPF system though. This allows you to perform them at more convenient and optimum times. You can maintain your DPF system much better this way, and avoid annoying trips to the dealership!

    Is there a link to a manual or installation guide?

    Edge Products includes the Edge Evolution CTS2 installation manual and the Quick Installation Guide on their website. The manual provides better written instructions, while the quick installation guide has excellent graphics. We highly recommend using both when installing your tuner for the first time.

    What is the average installation time?

    Most claims that the Edge Evolution takes only about 10 minutes to install. However, if you are threading the wires through your dash as seen in the Edge Diesel Evolution Performance Tuner Review etrailer.com video this process might take a little longer.

    What tools are needed for installation?

    It depends on how you want to run the wires. The Edge Evolution CTS2 comes with all of the items you need for installation. You don't need any special tools unless you plan on routing the wires underneath your dashboard. You may need a trim panel removal tool (or a screwdriver), but you can install the Evolution CTS2 without running wires through your dash.

    What operating systems are compatible with the Edge Evolution CTS2?

    You can only upload the Fusion software on computers with a Windows operating system. As of right now, a Mac will not support Edge products.

    Does it return to factory settings?

    Yes. The Edge Evolution CTS2 saves all factory settings and easily restores them.

    Is the Edge Evolution CTS2 legal in all 50 states?

    The Edge Evolution CTS2 complies with all emissions standards in all 50 states. The only exception is on 2011-2019 Ford trucks and 2016 GM trucks their status is still pending.

    What if I have an issue with installation?

    If you have an issue with your installation or the software on your Evolution CTS2, Edge Products has excellent tech support to walk you through any problem you might encounter.

    Can I install custom tunes on the Edge Evolution CTS2?

    You can't put custom tunes on the Evolution. It comes preset with up to five tunes that you can adjust.

    Can I use the same tuner on multiple vehicles?

    If you own multiple vehicles, you can't use the Edge Evolution CTS2 on all of them at the same time. When hooking up the programmer to the OBD-II port, the Evolution syncs with your truck's VIN number. You can use the programmer on another vehicle after returning the original truck to stock settings.

    Does it come with a warranty?

    The Edge Evolution CTS2 comes with a one-year limited warranty against manufacturer defects.

    Will the programmer void my factory warranty?

    Edge states that the Evolution CTS2 will not void your factory warranty. Even still, they suggests returning your truck to stock before taking it to your dealership for any work.

    However, our experience in this industry leads us to understand this is a gray area. Some dealerships are more dedicated to checking if your truck has been flashed with a tune before. Those dealerships are also more likely to blame a problem on your tune and not honor your warranty - whether or not the problem is even related.

    We suggest you accept the fact that if you tune your truck, you may be denied warranty coverage - even if you return it to €˜stock' before bringing it in.

    Is the Edge Evolution CTS2 incompatible with any makes/models?

    Please see the fitment & compatibility guide on this page. If your make/model is not listed there, the tuner is incompatible.

    Other Notes / Important Info

    Screen Freezing

    We have seen some cases of customers complaining of the screen freezing up repeatedly. If you encounter this issue, we recommend immediately contacting Edge's customer service and requesting it be replaced with another monitor.

    Use with Custom EFI Live / Other tunes

    While the SOTF kit should support custom tunes, they need to be selectable through a 1-5V signal which can only be sorted out by contacting support for the exact custom tuner you used and discovering how they are toggled. Then you will need to contact Edge's customer support to best figure out how this may be accomplished with their SOTF kit.
