Insight CS and 7.3 owners

I've been looking at all the different digital monitors available, and have recently stumbled upon the Edge Insight CS. I really like the looks of it, but would like to hear from some 7.3 owners who have it.

What all parameters can it monitor with the 7.3, specifically in 99-03 trucks?

I know that there were some problems with OBDII monitors and the VIN on tuned/chipped trucks, has this been resolved?

I know most people don't care, but I would like to know if it can tell fuel % remaining, mpg, etc. Anyone know if it supports this on the 7.3?

Heard rumors about future fuel pressure sensor and turbo timer accessories, anyone know anything about this?

That's all I can think of right now, I would just like to have as much information about it as possible before purchasing. Thanks.

I've got the edge monitor w/juice module for 99 7.3 and I'm real happy with it. It monitors Egt, boost and rpm plus backdown %. Or several other options. 5 settings including stock. Great booster and monitor. Took about 3 hours running all the wires and pluging in sensors. Hope that helps. Don't know much about insight. Sorry.

So you have the older Attitude monitor? Does it seem pretty accurate?

Yeh it's about 2 yrs old. Appears to be very accurate. Best power for the money. The more expensive versions are great too from what I've heard. Edge really seems to have the best programmers not just for 7.3 s either.

I have the cts and love it. You can monitor engine oil temp, tranny temp, boost, corrected engine rpm and speed, injector control pulse, i know I am forgetting more, but very happy with it and well worth the money, but I did notice a slight decrease in fuel economy.

I will get a pic of mine in the morning for you. I am just using the factory suction mount that comes with it.
