The Edge CS or CTS will do both plus a lot more.

I'm planning on monitoring EGT, Fuel Pressure, and Oil Pressure with Isspro EV2s just because I like them. Everything else will be monitored on my new Edge CTS. If you are in need of a monitor and don't really care what kind of gauge it is, then Edge CTS is for you. It's the cheapest way to keep an eye on what's going on with your truck.

Just get a monitor and be done with it. Lots of choices and you get many other useful PIDs.

Here is a DashBoss for I-products

If you really want to have a couple of gauges, get EGT and Fuel pressure.

Then get something else like mentioned above, including Scangauge II, and Torque APP for android phones.

Edit: you have an iphone, grab the Dashboss!

Ya originally I thought it would be cheaper to get a few gauges to keep an on the main stuff. But after looking at that insight CTS I think I'm going to go with that. Didn't realize how much stuff it actually covered.

Don't forget to add in stuff for the EAS that is NOT included. Things like: EGT (that requires EAS starter kit on Insight), pressure sensor (fuel), temp sensor, ambient air sensor. Etc etc.

Better call them and see how much that they are going to nickle and dime you to get what you're looking for. The nickle and dime part was why I went Auto Meter/ScanGauge.

I planned on getting those accessories down the road. From what I got from their website it can read ECT/EOT without the accessories right? Or do I need temp probes for that?

No, it will read those off your OBD2 port.

The only two needed features it will not read are Fuel pressure and EGT's... Those you need seperate temp probes/ sending unit for
