My Edge Insight !

Received it by UPS 2 Days ago, mounted it yesterday,,finally got the pics figured out on how to post them on FTE !




Mounted it through the ESOF dash panel,,,removes easy,,Replaceable,,no holes in the Dash,,,Plus a passenger can unhook it from the Velcro,,and pull it over to them closer,,so they can go through the Menu,,and get what ever Gauges we want,,,,so far I have only seen the EOT 8 degrees hotter the the ECT,,seems to hover 3-5 degrees hotter,,This Insight is SWEET !!

As a previous post about the Edge Insight,,,was on sale at Amazon.com,,,$246 for the unit,,Plus I also purchased the turbo thermo-couple(not installed yet) for $80.

The Edge unit just plugs right into the OBD II port ,,below the dash,,about where the drivers right knee is,,,the Insight has so many parameters,,,like 2 gauge setup,,3, 4, 5, 6, 7, gauge setups,,,my son found and setup the EOT(engine oil temp) in the "Ford section",,that and the ECT (engine coolant temp) is the main reason I purchased it,,but tranny temp, and EGT's will be great to keep an eye on also,,,,Easiest gauge install ever!!

Thats it guys,,,,That little panel pops out,,a small straight blade screw driver can slide right under it,,,I did have to drill a hole in that small removable ESOF switch panel,,,,But it is replaceable,,,a small aluminum angle comes with the Edge Insight,,double stick Tape, and the 2 pcs of velcro to mount it too the Aluminum angle.

One Note,,,it may not fit there if you have the ESOF 4x4 setup,,,I have the Manual T-case and shifter,,so my Dash plate was Empty!

You can always buy the $40 dollar mount for the Edge,,that mounts under your A-pillar on the Dash,,,,But as someone else mentioned,,,Is easy to see,,and Scum-Bag thieves are every where,,!!

Here is my dash mount. It matches the stock dash so well that I hope it blends in and won't attract too much attention.
