Edge Insight CTS set up

Hello all,
I just installed an Insight CTS in my 2013 F350, and was wondering what PIDs I should monitor. I like the option of setting an alarm for certain PIDs, but I don't know what levels to set the alarm(s) at. Also, from what I understand that in stock form there is no way to monitor per-turbo EGTs. Is this even a parameter I need to worry about? The truck is primarily a second vehicle used to tow my 8k lb 5th wheel.

I want to give Edge Products a quick shout about their customer service. I had a problem updating my CTS where it suddenly refused to power up. I received the monitor back two days after they received it, and it worked perfectly. Couldn't be happier with how this problem was resolved.

Thanks,
Marc

I monitor my EGT1 and EGT4. Both of those are down stream of the turbo. You are correct, there is no oem sensor pre turbo. You will see the temps in the EGT4 go up to around 1100-1200°F during active regen and it stays hot for a few minutes after the regen ends.

I also display my Soot %
Soot % will trigger a regen usually around 2.75% It gives me a little idea of when the next regen is coming

I also show my Voltage and ECT since the dash command center show Oil temp and Transmission temp

Ditto what PH stated for PIDS. I have the CS.
Not sure why Ford doesn't add a pre-turbo sensor, makes no sense to me. In my stock application, I gauge the EGT1 PID, and normally wait until it's well below 400 degrees before I shut the truck off, unless of course, I have my wife with me, and she gets *impatient*.

Painted Horse, where did you route the cable from the OBD11 port to the Module? Did you tuck it behind the seal running up the driver side door?

If you pop the little side access panel off on the side of the dash it's easy it route it down to the OBD port.

On the top site you can just put it between the dash and pillar
