Ford sensor placement

I have been looking at the Edge Insight simply as a do-it-all gauge for monitoring things like EGT on my 6.4L 2008 truck. I like the fact that you don't have to install the sensors as I did with my old truck. Having said that, though, does anyone have any idea where the EGT sensor is placed? I have the same question for the tranny temp sensor. Obviously with EGT it makes a significant difference where you are taking that reading. In my old truck I drilled into the exhaust manifold so that I measured EGT at it's hottest and before the turbo. Thanks, Pete

OK, so maybe I'm a little confused on this. There seems to be some indication that the EGT sensor is not built in. When you buy the Edge Insight, you can buy an additional EGT probe for around $80. Does anyone know if the EGT sensor is already there or do you have to buy this probe and drill it yourself to get EGT readings for the 6.4??

There is already a Pyro probe on you truck for the DPF You should just be able to plug the edge up and find it in the parameters.

There are actualy 3 pryos in the system.

The edge insight can read them all, but there one that is very close to the turbo. That's the one you need to be reading.

There is a thread floating around here with the picture of the engine and the exact location of the sensor. Let me see if I can find it.

There are 4 EGT11 EGT12 EGT13 and EGRTA......The egrta is the one you want to monitor it is a "pre turbo" temp reading. The insight can monitor all of them.

OK, can we please take a step back and try to make this very clear. I apologize if I'm being dense here. First, the installation guide talks about hooking up to the OBDII port - nothing more. Is it just a matter of hooking up to the port and then configuring the Insight to get EGT readings?? Secondly, if this is the case then what in the world is this optional $80 thermocouple for? According to the literature it is for EGT readings in the 6.4L diesel.

The insight will work on thousands of other vehicles. Such as the cummins which does not have the factory egt probes.

You do not need to buy it, you will just be wasting you money.
