I would try another O-ring on it. I used an O-ring that LOOKED good once, it sprung a leak almost immediately. They don't have to be terribly tight to seal, over torquing can cause a leak, too.

windrunner408 The CTS is a GREAT tool for monitoring. The only thing that could make it better IMO is to have two of them. I just like looking at all the numbers. In all honesty though, you really only need the EGT probe the most. Aside from that you could just run a fuel pressure gauge and whatever other gauges you wanted to. Overall I think it is one of the best upgrades I have done to my truck.

alha I'll add in that I love my CTS as well, looking forward to getting the pyro installed this spring, otherwise it's been a great addition to my truck. Very happy I bought it, even if it wasn't the cheapest. I would certainly do it again.

ctrow89 I really like the insight the more I look at them.. like being able to keep the oh sh!t bar and the amount of things it monitors. They are 399 with free next day air shipping so I'm thinking I might get one soon. I'm going to run it basic for now and get the expandable features layer.

PGreenSVT There is no comparison between an Insight and stand alone gauges. And I'd rather spend the money for the Insight. Actually I run an old original Insight with 3 add'l stand alone gauges.

rdunagan ive got the CTS and wouldnt trade it for anything. great peice and it can monitor everything! fuel pressure too if you buy the extra stuff to do it! if you do the egr cooler or delete your dumb not to do the oil cooler while its right there! but check the delta first to see what it is. if its 8* or more id change that sucker! gauges are nice my little bro has the 4 pillar gauge but he keeps kicking himself in the butt because of what i can monitor vs him for almost the same price. plus the cts you can do custom backgrounds and what not. so put a pic of the wife on there so she is happy and you can order more stuff later after she sees that you put her pic on the background of the cts!

It was all in all like 5-600.. Pricey, but would feel safer with that vs an add a leaf...
I've run 14.5X34.5 Toyos and 315/75-16 BFGs on mine WITHOUT a stabilizer and it tracks fine. If you're wandering, it could be ball joints and/or tie rod ends. Unless you're going over 6" of lift, an adjustable track bar isn't necessary. Besides, those things have a MONSTER torque on the axle end. Any decent 4" or taller lift will have a track bar relocation.

I would advise against upgrading to nitrogen shocks, I did and mine rides STIFF. Add a leaf/OEM shocks, not too bad off road, great on road. Add a leaf and nitrogen shocks, great off road, STIFF on road. Not long after I dumped the add a leaf all together and got a real lift.

ctrow89 Found this deal... EDGE 2011 HOLIDAY PROMOTION ... free dash pod for the insight or other edge products purchased Dec 1, 2011 - Jan 5, 2012. I might be very tempted to buy an insight CTS from one of the dealers of they will back date the reciept?

You would need those pillar gauges and some scanning software to get what that little thing can do. Scangauge costs about $165, that is only the cost of just one gauge.
You should have a fuel pressure gauge (need to add since there is no fuel pressure sensor on the truck), and if you want to fill out your pillar set, a pyrometer and a boost gauge.
NYC ... do you have the scangauge setup in your truck? I'm looking at maybe even running this with some pillar or column gauges, but not sure where I would mount it. I've seen the blendmount that goes above the rearview mirror, but can you see that during the day? Does anyone have input on a good place to mount it and still be able to put analog gauges later?
