Running a CTS for gauges but not using the tuner

Can someone give me a rundown on how this works? I have a tune on my tuned/deleted 6.4 but I'd like to have a monitor to watch EGT's and such. I understand the 6.4 reads EGT through the port. I'm assuming any of the Edge monitors would plug in the port and will allow just the gauges to perform??

Yes thats right. The cts insight is just a monitor. Once you have loaded your tune ( in my case I have the xrt pro) just plug in the cts monitor and it will give you a list of paramaters that you can monitor with it. Hide the cord that runs to the obd port mount the monitor and your done. Super easy and clean install. Works great.

H&S tuned. B&W gooseneck hitch with Companion 5th wheel. Helwig rear sway bar. Edge CTS monitor. Dieselsite coolant filter. Rancho 9000 shocks. Airlift 5000 air bags with onboard compressor. Viair onboard air with 5 gal tank. Flo-pro stainless 4 in. exhaust.

just buy the Edge insight CTS and don't get a model that is also a programmer since they are about 2x more money anyways

then follow pops directions
