Edge insight cts2

I'm still looking for a clean stock LBZ and understand a Edge insight 2 would be a good thing to have to monitor your engine. Are they just plug and play or does it take some time to hook it up. I'm not looking for any kind of a tuner but would like to monitor. Thanks

Plugs right into obd2 port. Answer a few questions, done. But will need to download update and install a few programs on a pc first. Pretty simple.

Yup, you can get EGT probe kit for the Edge CTS and a back-up camera kit (license plate or tailgate handle). With EFI live tunes you can change tune levels 'on the fly' . I have one in my 04.5 LLY and simply don't know how you own one of these things without the Edge monitor. Really love it and the ability to see clear codes, set threshold alarms, maintenance alarms / notifications.. They are not cheap, but IMO a invaluable tool

2004.5 Silverado CCSB LLY
Sinister EGR delete,
S&B air box and up-sized S&B intake mouthpiece,
CAT converter delete,
ATP 5 stage tune - Edge CST w/ EGT and backup camera,
5" AFE Power full exhaust kit
Airlift 5000# bags w/ on-board remote compressor

Just a nice CLEAN stock truck for towing the toys to the playground with a back seat full of grandkids

EFI live isn't smog legal in California. I'm not looking for a tuner.

Well since you're in Cali I feel for you. For the exhaust temp you're going to have to drill on your exhaust manifold, tons of info here and YouTube.... Also be sure to keep you CARB info for it when you get smogged... I failed because the idiot thought it was a tuner. Make sure to get the one with the replaceable probe so you don't have to re wire it when you have to replace it.

I know you aren't tuning now.... But the EFI live switching feature isn't available for our trucks with the Edge.....

Sorry to make so many different posts... This is the EGT probe I would go with.
