Smile Edge Insight ?

I have an Edge Insight coming (05 F450) and have looked at lots of install pics here. I just can't tell where the wires were run? Up over the top of the dash or maybe down the door post? Pics and any info would be great.
Thanks Jack

The instructions cover it pretty good. you take your fuse panel off and pull your side vent cover off. run your wire under the dash out the side and pull the wire between the pillar and the dash.there is room for the wire between the two. Plug it in and zip ty up the excess wire under the fuse panel.

Smile OK

Thanks-Wasn't sure if they would have instructions for a ford truck as I thought they fit others as well. If it is in the instructions I guess I will find out tomorrow.
Thanks Jack

This might sound a little dumb but I'll throw it out there anyways. So you just plug it in to the OBD II port and you get all the readings or do you have to install sensors for each thing you want to monitor. Interested in getting one but wondering what all the costs will be!

Just plug and play for most things, but I would recommend you get the expandable EGT probe so you can daisy-chain other things like a fuel pressure gauge, turbo timer, etc. For the Insight CTS (with dash pod), expandable EGT probe and the fuel pressure gauge setup, I think I spent between 750 and 800. A little pricey, but a fantastic setup that (with the dash pod painted to match) honestly looks stock.

I monitor battery volts, FICM volts, temperatures (transmission, oil, and coolant), fuel pressure, EGTs, and RPM. The only thing you need sensors/probes for are the EGTs and fuel pressure in this setup.
