You don't need stronger valve springs until you have more RPM.

If you can find a Quadzilla Adrenaline with a 4K tune in it, you'll spin up to 4000rpm.

what kind of rpm do you see on your truck with the EJWA and the smarty? can you explain how that works? stacking? or whatever it is. thanks Raw

How many RPM you looking for? When i had the edge juice with a smarty i could spin it to around 3600-3700 rpm. If you want more than that you can get a quad with 4k tuning but you will have to find a older one being quad is out of business now. Or you can do a redline box as well and those you can get high rpm out of.

I'm not sure how high I can rev mine, I haven't tried to max it out.

3600-3700rpm would be great. im not looking for a lot more rpm i just want my top speed to be higher and cruising rpms like at 2600 is that resonable for what you said about the juice with the smarty??? can you point me in the right direction on what smarty would go best with the EJWA ? or is there just one thats compatible with the edje. i knon nothing about this subject of adding another chip to my edge.

Your not fueling enough to make power past 3200 rpm. To actually make power past 3200 you need a box that will contiue to fuel past that.

TST comp
Blue Chip Redline
Quadzilla Adrenaline 4k

along with one of those boxes you need valve spings, push rods and a dampener.

gets expensive for those 800 extra rpm.

Are you saying your crusing at 2600 rpm? what speed are your crusing at....with 30" tires and an auto locked in OD thats 80mph......

no i cruse at 1600- 1700ish in 6th gear, its a standard. around 95 to 100 KMph. so like 60mph is a comfortable speed for the truck. I want a higher speed so its more comfortable for highway speeds. i will hit 6th and if im wanting to go around 120kmh its pushing the truck pretty hard. im not looking to go insane here. just to gain a bit. if its real expensive and as complicated as it sounds then it is not a priority for me. thanks for the info guys

I know the blue chip redline box will run up to 4,000 rpm without defueling and on there site I believe it's like $1495 or so I was looking at one for sled pulling purposes, they also have there fms box that is more street friendly I'm not sure how high it will let you go with the rpm though
