Can somebody understand the Edge Insight gauges.

I just installed an Edge Insight a week ago. Cool device so far. Wanted to monitor EOT and ECT as well as other parameters. Can somebody tell me what some of these things mean and what some of the gauges are actually monitoring?
For example;
1) what does PID mean?
2)What exactly is the injector control pressure monitoring, is it the oil pressure in the HPOP system or is it the fuel pressure at the injector nozzle, or is it some thing else entirely?

There are several others that I don't understand exactly what is being monitored but I don't remeber them at the moment. Will have to write them down and add to the post later.

Thanks for anay help!

PID's = Parameter ID's
ICP = Injector Conntrol Pressure, Monitors HPOP oil pressure

Not trying to hi-jack here, but I have been on the Edge web page for the last 30 min trying to learn about them. Was yours easy to install, if so what is required. I want to monitor ECT, EOT, EGT, which product does this? (I am IGNORANT with electronics!) Thanks.

The Insight CS or CTS will work. You will have to buy the EGT probe with the Insight (I suggest getting the Expandable EGT) but it will monitor ECT and EOT by just plugging it in.

Was very easy. Hardest part was routing the cable so that it is as hidden as possible, but if I had to do it again I could do it in about 15 mins. You will need to buy an extra part to monitor EGT's which I didn't get. I'm sure that will add some difficulty to the install since you'll need to install a sensor for EGT's into your exhaust stream.

I highly suggest getting the EGT probe

My truck is stock so I don't really need the EGT info, at least according to my mechanic.

Plugs into the OBD port under the dash.

OBD-II port under the dash on the drivers side. There is a black connector that is mounted to the dash frame. Will look like this.

Do you do anything with the truck besides drive it to and from work, school, etc...?
