Talking Cold in Norway

Hello all, after been wieving this forum for some time i had to register
Lives in cold Norway, northern part, so yes its cold.

recently bought my first 7.3 PSD, its an 00 F250- Super Duty ,super cab.

i have been browsing here for input about what kind of bundle (Tuner/monitor) to go for.
the rig is stock, so i think this parts is maybe recommended?

i end up thinking of a Hydra php, and maybe en Insight cts2? i just want some tunes, be able to monitor temps etc, and read /erase codes.

so far thats what i can find is good products? any input?

I sure do, and have quite a few customer in Norway actually.

Here is what you are looking for, and yes, these are the best out there for the 7.3L engine.

https://cncfab.us/i-30498022-power-h...php-hydra.html

https://cncfab.us/i-30497705-edge-pr...ble-98620.html (Good idea to have with a chip/tuner)

https://cncfab.us/i-30497709-edge-pr...cle-84130.html

Or

https://cncfab.us/i-30498155-edge-pr...cle-84030.html (This one is a bit cheaper, it does not have as large as a display, but basically does the same thing.)

Welcome to the forum. You'll find so much good info here. Something to try if you haven't already. I started using synthetic oil in my 1999 because in the -25 winters it runs so much smoother. Rotella makes a t6 15w-40 full synthetic, 5w-40 full synthetic and their t5 is a synthetic blend oil. I hadn't tried it before but wow what a difference in cold weather operation. You would probably like how it runs if you are still using the conventional 15w-40 (nothing wrong with it of course) I just liked how differently it ran in winter with the different oil etc.

I noticed my truck burned quite a bit more using the thinner 5w-40 but its a very popular diesel oil. I just burned it too quickly so went back to the thicker weight and back to normal etc. Also personally id recommend the non touch screen edge insight for cold weather. It acts very badly till its warmed up. My insight cs2 has a smaller screen but behaves much better in cold weather in general.

You want to get only the Insight series. They monitor, read codes, the other edge products are tuner/monitor combos but their tuning is very hard on the transmissions. Hence many if not all eventually use the php hydra for tunes and the edge insight for a monitor. My current set up too. Now if you find a used edge tuner/monitor combo cheaper you can use the monitor feature and just not use the tuning too. I did that for a good while until I decided to get the php hydra etc.
