What PIDs to monitor on CTS?

I have gauges for boost, egt, trans and fuel pressure. What do you guys recommend for the cts? Currently have ect, eot, ficm volts, battery volts, ipr %, icp volts, icp pressure and ficm sync. I feel like i can put to better use the spot for ficm sync.

I know you said CTS, but there was just a thread regarding the CTS2.

CTS 2

I have the CTS2 and I monitor fuel pressure, EGT, battery voltage, FICMv, EOT, ECT, Trans temp, VGT%, & ICP on the home screen. The other screen I have setup with PID's for a no-start or troubleshooting.

Didnt know you could set up a second screen. Or is that a cts 2 thing. Still trying to learn everything. There's a lot more stuff to know compared to the ol 7.3.

I'm not sure if it's a CTS2 only thing or not. I haven't had the chance to play with a CTS yet.

If you haven't given your CTS the latest update, doing so will give you a screen to monitor 10 pids at once. Then you can spend even more time figuring out what to watch!

I did the update. Still only shows 8 at the most. Unless they came out with another update within the past 3 weeks. I downloaded the manual yesterday. Just have to play with it more. So much to learn on this new truck. Just not able to get it all in within the time ive had it. Thanks guys.

No, it's an old update. You should have a screen with the pitch and roll indicators on it. That's the one that has room for 10 pids.
