CTS Insight

Hey all, I just finished my install of my CTS Insight, and it is a pretty good little machine. The only problem I have with it is that the '03 6.0 does not have many capablitlies through the OBDII or that's what Edge told me. Here are some pictures, and if anyone has a 2003 6.0 with an insight I would like to know what gauges you are running through it. I would also like to thank Adam at FCDP, he has been awesome. Thank you in advance!

Ya, I love the USA!!! But as far as drilling, the only thing I needed to drill was the plastic plate coming from the engine compartment to the cab. Other than that it was a breeze. I saw you ordered yours, that is going to be awesome in your truck.

I plan to use the same background . Thanks, I hope that it will

How long did it take to install? Did you have your manifold already drilled for the EGT probe?

I didn't have it drilled/tapped before, but that took me about an hour. But the wires, and inside install only took about 45 minutes, but I was taking it pretty slow texting Jeffrey and all.

Cool, mines already drilled, tapped and has the bung threaded in . Jeffrey can be annoying when you're working on a vehicle

Do you know what PIDs aren't available for '03 6.0's. Are the '03 & '04's essentially the same (same PCM?)? I just rec'd my CTS Insight, but haven't installed yet...truck is in the shop due to bad injector and haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

I have an early 04 and have a lot less options to watch than I expected as well.
No trans temp
No engine oil temp
No voltage output
No boost.

It doesn't read my vin number either. I even put it back to factory tune with the sct to see if that would make a difference and it didn't.

I sent them an email asking what all I should be able to see. If this is all I get, I'll be sending it back.

I'd send it back too! I really bought mine for monitoring the ECT and EOT delta

You guys are better off with a 4 gauge pod. Trans, boost, ECT and EOT, and then one more for EGT's
