7.3L programmer stacking

I currently have a predator programmer installed in my 7.3L and recently bought an Edge Juice with Attitude monitor for its shift on the fly ability. Neither Edge nor Predator with confirm if it is okay to stack the two together, they both try to sell me thier programmer to stack.
Question: Has anyone stacked a predator with and edge before and were there problems?
Thanks

do not stack on a 7.3, ever...nothing good will come of it. Use one or the other

I will probably go with the edge juice with attitude then. As I understand it, the edge does on adjust transmission shift pressure. What should I do about this if I am mainly using this truck for pulling? Any thoughts?

if you are towing make sure you monitor your trans and pyro temps so they don't get out of wack, usually a good idea to leave it on a mild tune if you plan on towing

What is the weak point in the 7.3L when you turn up the hp, is it head studs? Does stacking add too much hp or is it a timing issue as Edge has implied that the timing may be too advanced? Thoughts....

I would sell off the programers and get a TW custom tuned chip for the 7.3 then there is no need for stacking anything.l

I know two guys who stacked an Edge and Superchip and an Edge and Predator on there 6.6 Duramax's (not Ford's I know but still). But anyways, Stacking = bad news. The trucks had ridiculous power, like stupid power, but stuff started going wrong like blown up tranny's from too much power and sensors going haywire along with toasted injectors from serious overfueling.

i have an edge evolution with a banks 6 gun stack on my 7.3. I think the key is to be reasonable with it. Not driving to the grocery store with both programmers tapped. Guages for monitoring pyros and trans temp are a MUST MUST MUST!!
