WTB Ect and Eot monitor

I have heard of the edge insight and they sell for about $399. Are there any other real time monitor kits that bring all the necessary hardware to monitor my engine cooling temperature and engine oil temperature that are more economical? I want to make sure that my temps are less than 15* apart. Thank you. Anything else you guys recommend I monitor?

I got my insight for $200. It cost me another $90 for my exhaust probe, but you could do without that for now if you want.

I got a ScanGauge II. They list for $169. It will read Ewt and Eot. You do have to program the Eot but it is easy.

Raul, do you sell these? Does the cs monitor anything else without having to buy extras? Thanks again.

I checked the webpage but i do not see where it says that it monitors engine oil temperature in the 12 things it monitors, i may have missed it. oooops, I think i just read on your post about the program for eot, is that extra? Thanks again.

That is there basic 12 things it monitors. It has what is called X-gauges. No extra cost, X-gauges is part of the unit. It lets you set it up for different trucks/cars. You could use it on your other trucks/cars if you need to. Look up what it says about X-gauges on there site. You have to input data to set up other things that it can moitor. For the 6.0 it list 8 other monitors.
Injection Control Pressure - PSI
Fuel Pulse Width -- Micro seconds
Mass Fuel Desired -- Mg per Stroke
Volume Fuel Desired -- Cubic mm
Engine Oil Temperature -- Degrees F
Exhaust Back Pressure -- BP PSI
Manifold Air Temperature -- Degrees F
IPR Duty Cycle -- %

I have input all of them and have not got a couple to read. I might have just input the information wrong and I need to recheck. The set up is easy. You have 4 gauges you can watch at one time. It does not have EGT set up for it-- that is a draw back for some people. I got my in Dec. when they were running a special $$ on them.

X2 on the scangaugeII. I bought mine just to monitor ECT and EOT. You can display four gauges at once so I also monitor tranny temp and voltage with it. Granted, it does'nt monitor EGT and it does'nt have audible alerts like the insight, but if your on a budget, it works.
