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.

Now I dont understand how does it read the temps ex:exhaust? Because on my 99 7.3 I had to tap into the exhaust and the tranny for the gauge. Thanks for the help

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?
