Adding fuel pressure to my Edge Insight CTS

What do I need to buy to add fuel pressure to my Edge Insight CTS? I already have the EAS Expandable EGT with Starter Kit for CS and CTS



I know that I will need the
EAS PRESSURE SENSOR


and the EAS Universal Sensor Input


What else do I need?

This may help
Ford Powerstroke 6.0L fuel pressure monitor and low pressure fix. | Toy Hauler Adventures
I went with a fuel pressure gauge on the column that way it will give you 9 things to look at if you have it with the CTS you only get 8 plus it runs $300+ or- I went this way works well just something to think about.
This is what i got for the fuel pressure gauge, it goes into the test port, this is a cool set up gets the sender away from the heat and viberation of the motor.

Might look at getting this as well. Already have the EGT & the Turbo timer (which I highly recommend). I currently have no way to see my fuel pressure.

Is this going to be my cheapest option?
Edge Insight Fuel Pressure Kit

Will it work as well as using this hose from Strictly Diesel? Going this route would cost ~$30 more.

Don't you have an extra input available on your Universal Sensor Input from your turbo timer? If you do all you would need is the pressure sensor. That may be your cheapest route.

No the edge turbo timer is its own extension of the accessory system.

Oh, my bad. I was thinking it plugged into the universal sensor input.

Hey! If you are at mechanically/electrically inclined and don't need a plug and play solution, you can save some money by buying the Edge universal input and running a AEM pressure sensor instead of the Edge pressure sensor. You'll just have to wire it yourself. This is the route I was going to take whenever I do get an Edge.

The Edge universal input allows any 0-5v sensor to be used, and AEM provides the calibration table for their sensors.

Here's a link to the available AEM sensors:

Sensors and Connectors - Wideband O2 UEGO, Water/Methanol, Stand Alone Engine Management, Piggyback F/IC, Tru Boost Controller, Gauges, Automotive Performance Electronics

Note the 0-100psi brass sensor is only $62 MSRP.

Then you can use the other output of the Edge and run a pressure sensor maybe for like water pressure!
