what to monitor???

Just got my Edge CTS today. Ive already got Boost and EGT gauges. What should i monitor with the CTS? Besides EOT and ECT, the main reason i bought it. I'm not going to purchase the EAS stuff yet, since funds dont agree. thanks...

ficm voltage, icp voltage, fuel pressure(when/if you get the eas stuff), tranny temp. I would say skip icp psi due to a tune throws the reading off

MY ICP is between 1.0 volts idle and 4.6 WOT. normal? What is normal VGT%? I was a little worried that my ficm might be going out, but its above 47v all the time.

Sent from my smart phone that seems dumb compared to my wifes new phone...

I believe icp is supposed to max at 4v. Don't quote me on that though.

As for the ficm, does the truck start rough, idle rough, not run for anything until it warms up some, or have a whitish haze out the tailpipe for a few seconds? It may mean a sticking injector vs ficm.

That FICM should be perfectly fine at 47V. I do not believe it can test injectors, you would need either a ford diagnostics machine or AE i believe.
