Those temps scare me I am going to weld a fitting about 6" back from turbo on exhaust and install a IssPro pyrometer. In all of theI ran the cable between the steering wheel and the dash (Left side). It stays in place and doesn't block the Evic view for me. I can easily see the Edge CS2 display and when necessary access it. Somewhere on this site, I did post a picture of it and even tried the velcro approach, but prefer my current method.
It is tuck away from public view, the mounts they provide make it to visible to the public. Encouraging theft.
I can take another picture of the setup later on and post it here, if interested.
Do I like it, yes. Is it worth it. Yes but overpriced, but FCA should have provided all the critical info readily on the EVIC or Uconnect.
Initially, my concern was the REGEN, not wanting to shut off the truck in a middle of a REGEN. From watching how it operates, I concluded that the truck firmware handles it well in most cases for me, but I can see others who drive shorter distance, it can be a nuisance and disconcerting. These individual (new to diesel) may conclude they bought the wrong truck, but reeducating may help them regain their confidence in their purchase.
I found monitoring the temperature that prove to be the most important and critical info. This I discovered when towing. I monitor the EGT1 to EGT4 and ERT (radiator coolant) when using winter fronts. (I have alerts set when it reaches the critical temperatures.)
When towing the EGT1 and EGT2 raised concerns for me. It was too easy to get 1500 F temperatures (I don't think it a safe range, at least for longevity of the engine) when towing up on a grade, like in the mountains. Anyone towing need to monitor these temperatures.
FCA should have provided that info in their displays. I suspect now, that FCA is aware of this short fall and will need to recall and install additional coolers and/or rethink the plumbing for the radiator and oil coolant. Perhaps more torque/horsepower is needed to claim those tow rates advertised.
Until it is addressed, those who tow, need to monitor EGT's and react as needed.
