Well if it gets really hot fom sitting in the sun you can't see the screen until it cools down. But I park under trees and keep visors in my windows and that keeps that from happening. But with the edge insight you can monitor things you can with the livewire. For now at least. Like ficm voltage. I think fuel pressure as well. Plus you have to manually turn it on and off. And you can put a backup camera to the insight which would be good if you don't have a tv radio. I personally want to get a edge insight cs so I can mount it to the the dash and I will look more neat. Plus the livewire is bulky. But I found a good spot to mount it. I forget what page I posted pics but if you are going to end up going with the livewire I would surely post the pics on this page for you. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

Don't quote me on fuel pressure monitoring but like I said I'm almost positive. I will ask someone on here. I know a bunch of guys on here are running that setup.

Did you mean egt? And I am pretty sure the probe is separate. But i suggest calling MKM or wherever you buy from and ask them before purchasing. If it doesn't I'm sure they will add it for a package deal. If you have to buy it separate it might cost a tab bit more.

Btw when I talked to sct they told me the livewire is suppose to monitor fuel pressure but I can't get it. I'm thinking it might now read it for a 6.0

I think you can measure fuel rail pressure, you can't measure fuel pressure without an expandable fp probe for the insight.
