If you browse the 6.0 forum section a little you will find a HUGE amount of info already explained on this topic.

Best things to monitor with the Edge Insight would be:
-Deltas between Engine Coolant Temp and Engine Oil Temp.
-EGT when you get the probe.
-FICM voltage.
-VGT percentage.
-Boost (if you don't have a tune).
-Trans temp.

Just to name a few.

How many parameters can you monitor at once on the CTS screen? Is it 8?

This is off their website. Can you really monitor all of these just by plugging into the obd2?
Accel Pedal Position, Barometric Pressure, Battery Voltage, Corrected Speed (03-04), Engine Coolant Temp, Engine Load, Engine Oil Pressure, Engine Oil Temp, Engine RPM, Engine Run Time, FICM Voltage, Gear with TCL, ICP Pressure, Injector Pulse Width, Intake Air Temp, Mass Air Flow, Mileage Coach, MPG Instant, MPG Average, TCC Duty Cycle, Time 0-60, Time 1/4 mile, Trans Temp, Turbo Boost, Vehicle Speed (04-07), Variable Geometry Turbo Duty Cycle

My bad, i'm new to these new gauge capabilites. Last gauge setup I had was the quadzilla commander. Made a couple bucks so I'm looking to spend it on monitoring stuff. Thanks.

Yes, you can monitor up to eight of those.

Do a search, but the ones I insist on right now are; engine coolant temp, engine oil temp, tranny temp, Exhaust temp (need pyro), FICM voltage, batt voltage, the VGT, and boost for fun. Going to add fuel pressure as soon as I get the sending unit.

Thanks. I found a picture where it was showing 8 inputs. Got it.

Yes you are, I just had mine rebuilt by Ed at ficmrepair.com and it's running like a champ! Couldn't be happier! And especially how fast I had it! Sent out Monday, back installed by Friday! I know swamps rebuilds them as well. I havnt gone through them personally but have read great things. Having one rebuilt certainly beats a 900$ ford part. Just my 2 cents! Hope it helps.

Yeah, you need to have your FICM rebuilt; it should never go below 45v and ideally never below 47v. I also heard that Ed is now capable of installing PHP's FICM tunes while he's got it so that it doesn't have to be sent out to PHP.

I also just had mine rebuilt by Ed about a month ago and its doing great. I just wish he had been able to install the tunes then. Oh well, guess I'll just have to get the remote programmer for it.
