which one to purchase?

I am in the market for a tuner for my truck. I have read here that the most popular one for our trucks is mad my SCT. I have gone to there web site and was overwhelmed, by more than one products for the 6.0L. Now can anyone describe me the benefits and draw backs on any of these different products. Livewire, SF3, X3, xcalibrator2 or the touch screen extreme.
Anyone with some knowledge in re guards to the differences would help a lot.

If your commin, it's over. If your stroken, it's just started.

2007 F250 6.0L PSD Lariat - Dieselsite Coolant Filter - Bilstein Shocks - Blue fuel pressure upgrade spring - Country Duel Steering Stabilizer - Fumoto Oil Drain Valve - HFCM Water Separator Drain Plug Upgrade - ARP studded - Engine Oil (Rotella syth) - Rear Diff. & Front Axle (Royal Purple)
