sct livewire

I am looking at a used one here locally that has 3 innovative tunes.

Is this a good tuner? Is $450 too much for a used one? He said it was on the truck for about a year and a half.

Any input would be great.

Thanks

I dont run the livewire so I couldn't answer that but SCT is the best choice.

it has more features then the other sct's but does the same thing while tuning.i got mine for $300cdn used so $450 may be a little high. as bull dog said you may not be able to use the costume tunes. some don't like the live wire cause of the crappy screen, .i don't use the fancy features so it stays in my glovebox. just get the cheaper model (price not quality)from innovative with there tunes already on it.

I gave 200 for my used livewire, I've been running the canned tunes, they seem decent.
