Review of the Edge Evolution CTS3 Tuner for GM Duramax

In the world of tuning Diesel trucks, Edge has been at the forefront of pack since their inception back in 1999. Not only have they consistently produced state of the art products, but their easy to install and simple to use products have made getting into tuning your vehicle incredibly accessible to new users. Add in a massive amount of customization and you’ve pretty much summarized Edge’s superior product production of the last two decades.

The CTS3 is no different. This newest iteration of the Evolution family is anything but iterative. We’re looking at a brand new screen with increased fidelity and resolution, a massive upgrade to their processing power to rival many smart phones available on the market today, great gains in performance for you Duramax, improved functionality, and even easier updating. And we didn’t even talk about the customization this next level product brings to both your truck and the device itself.

To highlight all the features of this product, one would need either a whole summer course on programming or a novella length document, so what we will focus on here are some of the more common reasons diesel truck owners pick up tuners and gauges, like the Evolution CTS3, and some of the huge improvements that this newest update brings over the last generation and the other options available on the market today.

There are really three key reasons why folks tend to be interested in tuning their Duramax diesel engines: optimizing for towing, improving fuel economy, and / or increasing power / torque. Of course, these are not necessarily mutually exclusive. It is totally possible to optimize for towing with a tune and still find that you are getting better fuel economy while towing and seeing performance gains too--in fact, this is highly likely.

What you have to realize is that stock performance on these Duramax engines is adjusted by GMC initially for the general public. GM wants those who purchase their trucks to get a solid, sort of middle of the road experience, at doing just about whatever you might do with your truck. So whether you’re using your diesel as your daily driver, a work truck, to off-road, to tow a huge trailer with heavy equipment, or to drag race your buddy on the weekend, you’re never really optimized for any one task while in stock mode.

But this is where the beauty of tuning using the CTS3 Evolution from Edge comes in. You can switch from economy mode to towing once you hook your trailer up to your hitch. You can flash back to stock if you have to go do those annoying EPA Emissions tests where you live. And if you just want to see how much horsepower or torque you can really coax out of your Duramax, you can pop it into extreme mode (if available on your year of truck) or performance mode.

This means you get full control over your engine. Suddenly, instead of being a Jack of all trades, your Duramax becomes a master at any given task at hand.

So whether you’re looking to get the most out of your Duramax or just want to monitor a few parameters that your stock HUD just doesn’t account for, this new and improved, slim and sleek updated design of the Evolution CTS3 makes it the most optimal tuning and digital gauge monitor on the market today for your GM / Chevy Duramax diesel. The best just got a major update and overhaul. Whether you’ve never tuned before or you’ve been with Edge since the original Evolution CS or the Revolver, this next gen device is a must-have for the diesel performance guru.
