Edge CTS2 help

I received an Edge Insight CTS2 for Christmas. I'm using it on my 07 LMM.
No problems getting it updated and installed.
I have yet to find a chart or some sort of listing that explains the PID abbreviations.
This listing should be a part of the documentation included with every CTS2 but it isn't. A Google search didn't help either.
I know some PIDs are not going to show up for every vehicle.
Can someone take the time to list each PID abbreviation with the unabbreviated name of the PID.

Another question.

I wanted the CTS2 for its ability to do an injector balance test. I tried that feature first once I had it installed. At an idle none of the injectors read 1.0. The highest reading on any of them was .08 with many less than that. The CTS2 manual says the threshold at an idle is 4.0 plus or minus... whatever that means.
Do I interpret that to mean any injector reading higher than 4.0 at an idle is suspect?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Don't know right off about PID abbreviations but the balance rates are good if between 4.0 or -4.0 in park at idle with a stock tune engine at operating temperature.

Thanks for the reply

So... a reading at idle that falls between -4.0 to +4.0 indicates an acceptable balance rate?

Mine has been tuned and is currently set on the +30HP tune. I wonder how that affects the test?

Right between -4 to +4, according to GM recommendations it should be on a stock tune, don't know what effects other tunes have on it.

Tuning should NOT affect “balance rates test”
Mine was fairly close stock to 40 hp tune now in sig.
Balance rates will not be the same on the cylinders very time you check as long as they fall in the -4 to +4 you should be good.

are the injector balance rates a PID or a test that is done? I have a CTS2 and don't remember there being a PID for that. IIRC in previous posts some mentioned that the CTS2 was advertised as having the balance rate feature, but actually didn't.

If you go into the diagnostic menu, it is an option in there. It will bring up all 8 balance rates on the screen.
