SCT X3 Plus Edge Insight vs. SCT Livewire

I'm selling my Edge Juice with Attitude and moving on to SCT tunes.

I really like the attitude monitor, its simple and mounts well.

What option do you guys think is better?

Option #1 SCT X3 and Edge Insight
I would be able to install custom tunes and then use the Edge Insight gauges.
Pros: Reliable Tuner and Good gauges. I can return to factory tune with no evidence of tuner installed since Insight can remain as gauges only.
Cons: 2 different systems to maintain

Option #2 SCT Livewire + SCT EGT Probe
Pros: 1 single unit to maintain and use.
Cons: Some people have said Livewire is "flaky" and not dependable. I would have to remove Livewire to hide evidence of tuner when going in for service.

Other Questions:
What are the dimensions of the Livewire module?
Does the Livewire module let you display whatever data you choose on the main screen? Specifically EGT, Oil Temp, Coolant Temp and Tranny Temp

If I order custom tunes from innovative along with the X3 or Livewire are they sent to me after I send Innovative my stock stratagie? How do I choose which custom tunes to order. Their website doesn't list them and I emailed them without getting a return email. I basically want tunes for street driving and towing of a 10k trailer up over the mountain.

Thanks for the input.

I say go with option #1. And yes, after you receive your tuner you will hook it to your truck to get your strategy, send it to the custom tuner and they will email you a tune.

I was thanking about doing the edge insight and sct, I was wondering if it showed more than just boost, egt and trans temp. Does it show things like fuel pressure, coolant temp and oil temp

Thanks

Option 1 definitely. As for what the Insight can do, from what I have been reading online, it seems as if it can show everything the Attitude can do..... or at least what I can tell.

I dont think it will do fuel pressure but it has injector pulse width, all the sensors on the truck can be looked at, and 100 other things, 1/4 mile times, 0 to 60 time.
