Finally got my Edge CTS - Installing on Pillar

I finally picked up a Edge CTS. My goal was to try and mount is using a standard Insight pillar mount and the CTS adapter. So I ordered these:

Autometer 13001 pillar pod:



And the CTS adapter from Edge:

Edge Products| Product




Here are the instructions for the adapter:





Basically the adapter attaches to the back of the CTS and the the adapter snaps into the regular insight pod.

Here is the pod in the truck:





Here is the adapter snapped in the pod:









So today when the CTS came in, I attached the adapter to the back of it and snapped it in the pillar pod, fit perfect:





The way the cable attaches to the back of the monitor does keep the monitor from snapping in completely with the cable attached.



Here is how it sits, good and flush, when the cable doesnt hit:



I'm going to have to mess around with it some more tomorrow if I get some time. I'll probably have to clearance the pod to allow the cable to fit into it so the monitor can fit completely flush in the pod. I'll update when I get a chance to get it figured out. On a side not, I was kind of worried about the CTS being too big, but when it came in and I got it in my hand, I think its perfect!! Here is a picture with a $10 bill next to it for size reference:

Use some velcro. It'll keep the unit from moving even if it doesn't snap in completely!

I dont like the stress it puts on the plug where it snaps into the monitor. Will look better to cause I can run the cable down the inside if the pod. I'm sure velcro would work, I'm just VERY picky lol

Well I had to make about a three hour trip today, so I plugged the CTS up so I could see what kind of readings I was getting (even though its not permanently mounted yet lol).

This was after about an hour of driving, averaging about 70 MPH. Let me know how the numbers look. Sorry for the pics, hard to take a pic with the IPhone while doing 70mph+ in the rain lol:





Also put it up by the mirror while I was driving to see how it looked up there:

Looks like an oil cooler replacement is in your VERY near future.

15 or higher is grounds for an immediate replacement. With a delta of 14, its fairly restricted. My delta at 70 is roughly 1 degree. Pulling a load on a big hill MIGHT bring it to 5 or 6. Considering my truck has 40's, and is ALWAYS under a load turning those monsters, I consider that excellent. I'd start planning for a replacement if I were you.

good make sure a solid coolant flush is done before any work gets done. Refill with ELC coolant, and slap a coolant filter on there too if you dont have one already. egr delete too I'd assume?
