Need Monitor????

I am looking for an in cab monitor of my 06. I have a Scangauge II now and I'm monitoring EOT, ECT, TFT, and FICM. I would like something that I can monitor EGT's as well. I really don't want analog gauges again and I already have an SCT with Innovative Tunes. So I am looking for suggestions.

Thanks

Re: Need Monitor????

Is the insight CTS just a monitor or is it a programmer as well? I've looked at them but 400-500 for just a monitor is a little high but it does look nice.

Re: Need Monitor????

Ya it's just a monitor. Everyone that has one swears by it. You can monitor 8 things at once. They are pretty nice. We have one on a 2010 duramax at work. Been trying to snag it for months lol

Re: Need Monitor????

It can be one or the other, they offer just a monitor model and a tuner/monitor combo

Ford 6.0L Powerstroke Edge Insight CTS Monitor Part: 83830
Ford 6.0L Powerstroke Edge Evolution CTS Tuner Gauge Display 85200

Buttt if you've been here long at all you'll know we only sing the praises of SCT w/custom tuning on this site so the monitor with an SCT would be the way to go.

Re: Need Monitor????

My CS will be here on Monday. I got a steal of a deal on the monitor, EGT probe, and the mount kit. I already have an SCT with IDP tunes and love them.

Re: Need Monitor????

My CS didn't come with it. Its called an ATS overhead mount for an edge attitude monitor. I used it for my old edge insight because it was identical to the attitude monitor. I decided to keep using it with with insight CS.
here it is ATS Overhead Mount for the Edge Attitude Monitor

here's what it looked like with my old insight

Re: Need Monitor????

I like it mounted up there rather than down near the dash. The one on XDP looks like it mounts closer to the visor than yours, or is it an illusion?
