digital gauges

Just wondering what the preferences are with you guys. I'm looking at getting a digital gauge (to monitor 6.0 vitals) and I'm looking for your input. I see scan gauge is small (which model is preferred), but looks like edge will display more at one time (leaning towards CTS). What do you guys like? Thanks in advance for your time. (Also I searched the site first)

If you get the Edge Insight CTS it's a great tool, get the expandable probe so if you want to add more to it you can down the line

Lot of guys get the ScanGaugeII to me not as good as the Edge because you can not use the pyro a must if you pull

I like the Edge so well i will be getting a splitter and getting the CTS just have to call edge first to see if it will work with a 6.0 you just can't have 2 mant gauges.

Gauges

Yea, I am knid of liking the edge myself. The slightly larger screen seems to be more user friendly. Do you know if the window mount works well? I've heard guys mention it wouldn"t stay on. Somewhere out of the way seems good.

I don't think it is any different than a Garmin or TomTom window mount, it all in how well you stick them on the window. I think it is easy to use the Edge i have takes a while getting what you want but it is cool and the readings are spot on, i have the A piller in my 97 and they are a lot of work the when you are finished you have just 3 gauges where with the edge you have a lot of gauges at one time.

2005 bought it last year with 58k on it. Now has 78k. Got a coolant flush and refill with the good stuff, removed the obstacles from the stock 3.5" exhaust. Next up coolant filter, blue spring and monitor. Not necessarily in that order.
