Edge CTS Insight vs overhead gauge pod vs a pillar gauge pod
Just like it says which one do you prefer. I have an 04.5 LLY and I am trying to pick a direction to go with for gauges. Also what are the pros and cons you guys have found with your gauge setups.

I like the idea of having an analog EGT gauge always at eye level, always on. An Insight would make a good addition for checking other parameters or double checking the analog EGT readout from time to time. I tow a lot and keep an eye on exhaust temp, it gives an early warning of potential overheating.

I have the CTS mounted in the overhead counsel. Out of the way and out of site from thieves. Nice gauge that monitors a lot of info.
Be aware there are a few issues with the CTS and a few threads on hear. Mine has to be unplugged and plugged back in about one in ten when you start the truck.

I love my CTS. If i didn't already have an egt gauge i'd run an expandable probe to it in a heartbeat.
I run an analog boost since to read higher psi than the edge and then have the cts also sitting in my pillar.
Absolutely digging this setup
