Edge Insight CTS, Help please..

I want to keep my grab bar on the pillar so I don't want to put in a pillar gauge pod.

I have a SCT X3 tuner from Innovative Diesel.


What all do I need to monitor and what parts do I need?

I think:
Dash pod Mount kit. P/N 98003
Dash pod P/N 18302
EGT pyrometer P/N 98603 expandable
Transmission Temp. sender P/N 98608
EAS Universal Sensor Input P/N 98605
maybe, Fuel Pressure sender???

The CTS will come with a suction cup mount. The dash mount and adapter thing kinda looked hokie to me... could be wrong.

If you purchase the EAS EGT Probe Kit it will give you the capability of adding things suck as fuel pressure. Its really trick... But you have to buy the sensor input kit along with the sensor kit. $$

I run the CTS everyday and LOVE it!!

If you want to keep your handle use the suction cup mount, I use it and it works great. good quality. You also don't need the trans temp sender, it will already monitor it.

Yes, get the EGT expandable, and the Universal sensor for a fuel pressure addon.

I was skeptical of the suction cup mount, but 6 months in the heat and havent had any problems.

You can monitor 8 things at once with that unit.

Fuel pressure, EGT, ECT (coolant), EOT (Oil), TFT (transmission fluid)

I also monitor ICP, FICM,and battery.

You won't need the transmission temp sender, the CTS can read that via the OBII and on my truck its spot on with my aftermarket gauge.

I would just do the expandable hook up, with EGT and Fuel Pressure.

As for mounts, you have the standard suction cup that the CTS will come with or the dash pod. You will need the adapter plate for the dash pod, the CTS won't fit into it cleanly.

Don't forget to keep FICM voltage on your display as well as ECT/EOT.

I remember reading this somewhere, but what does the FICM voltage have to be at regularly and what would happen to the injectors if it drops?

The Edge Insight should already read trans temp thru OBDII, so no need to buy the sensor for a add on.
