Edge CTS Monitor

Hello all,

I recently installed an Edge insight CTS on my 05 cummins. Truck is completely stock, never has or will have a tuner.

Probably overkill in stock form, but the Edge is awesome.... I love being able to monitor the engines vital signs. I will soon be adding an EGT probe and a real oil pressure Guage as add - on sensors.

As an added bonus, I also have wires up a pair of $14 ebay backup cameras to the CTS... One on the truck bumper and one on the camper bumper. Works awesome! I can actively switch between them going down the road so I can monitor the hitch and see what's behind the trailer!

If anyone is looking for a set of guages to monitor engine vitals, I strongly recommend the Edge Insight CTS Monitor.

I use ScangaugeII for the past 8 years amd monitor all the required elements for the 6.0L Ford diesel.
On the Ford It's a must. Additional gauge required is the fuel pressure gauge. For Ford the oil temperature is very important.
Programmed with Hypertech for 8 years and it rocks and protects my engine. Cannot trust Ford for what they did to that engine. Also great code reader.

X2 on insight cts. EFI live tune with five settings. Optimized stock has already increased my mileage to 16 city from 14. Highway miles I'll find out next week and highway towing I'll find out next month. Nothing wrong with a cleaned up tuning. No smoke at all and you have to put your nose to the tailpipe to smell it.
