To help understand the symbols

Engine Oil Temperature (EOT)
Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT)
Fuel Pressure (FP)
Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT)
Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT)

EOT/ECT will let you observe indirectly the condition of your oil cooler (you want these values to remain within 15 degrees of each other) at 10* i think your cooler are getting plugged
FP so you can protect your fuel injectors (stay between 45 and 70 psi)
EGT to stay below 1350 degrees F so you don't melt metal components you can go to 1500* for a very short time.
TFT so you don't overheat..185*- 200-220* max



The Edge Insight CTS a great tool, get the expandable probe so if you want to add more to it down the line plus you can run 8 things at one time.

Things you can add down the line like turbo timer & back up Monitor & fuel pressure
Edge Products – CTS UPDATE: Turbo Timer Install | Toy Hauler Adventures
Insight CTS Monitor by Edge Products | Toy Hauler Adventures
Ford Powerstroke 6.0L fuel pressure monitor and low pressure fix. | Toy Hauler Adventures

Lot of guys get the ScanGaugeII to me not as good as the Edge because you can not use the pyro a must if you pull
ScanGauge - Trip Computer + Digitial Gauges + ScanTools
Remember fuel pressure is just as important as any of the other gauges.
This is what i got for the fuel pressure gauge, it goes into the test port, this is a cool set up gets the sender away from the heat and viberation of the motor.

Column Pod
1 Gauge Column Pod (AT)
Autometer Fuel Pressure gauge---Bottom Left (This matches my Dash gauges)

OK Thanks, i will. The way i look at it with a 6.0 you can't have to many gauges the main reason because i use mine 95% of the time pulling my 14,000lb 5er just want to keep my good eye on things that count.

I love the edge insights. They look good and are the most bang for your buck. I have pillar gauges and a insight cs. I just bought a edge cts for the bigger screen. My edge cs will be for sale in the classified section this weekend. Pm me if your interested. It's almost a year old. I have the box and everything. Let me know

The cs or cts will do the rest just fine. I have the cts and have it set to watch ficm,eot,ect,fp,boost,tft,icp voltage,and egt. the other main value I would say to watch would be icp psi, but a tune will throw that value off.
