I am looking at installing 3 gauges on my 02 7.3, while i was shopping around I came across the INSIGHT CTS MONITOR, I have never herd or seen this product before and was hoping maybe someone on here would have a little insight on this product? Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.

All lot of people on here like myself are using the CTS. I love it simple install by running wire and direct plug-in to dlc, no splicing. You can set alerts for all your pids and even if one that your not directly monitoring it will show up and beep at you. It can read and clear dtc's. Its got some performance modes like 0-60 times and i think 1/4 mile. Slight draw back is if you want to watch egt or fuel,pressure you have to purchase additional sensors but again no splicing.

You have to buy the EGT probe. It plugs into it so you buy it from Edge. I have it and like it but because it reads boost from the ODB port it only reads up to something like 28lbs. I just bought a pillar gauge set for my boost, fuel pressure, and hpop. Hopeing it will fit above it. I have the dash pod that holds my CTS. Over all its a good product.

I thought the edge could read HPOP pressure and duty cycle?
