Long time lurker, first time poster. I am currently doing a hardcore playthrough of New Vegas, and I was wondering if Ed-E's upgrades transfer to the Mojave Ed-E BEFORE you finish the DLC. I'm level 16, just finished Honest Hearts, and I want to start LR, but only for the first couple Ed-E upgrades. I'd like to get the upgrades, return to the Mojave, and then do the majority of the DLC much later in my playthrough. I couldn't find the answer by searching the internet or this forum, so I apologize if this has been asked before.
