Need help choosing

Should I do the egr delete first or get the sct tuner? Also I'm stuck between live wire and x cal, should I just get the live wire and not worry about gauges or get x cal? Which would u chose and why? Thanks

i would go with the X3 with a set of regular analog gauges over the livewire.... or the X3 with the edge insight.... we have combo kits for both here:
SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit
SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tuning/ Insight Combo

if you have any questions feel free to PM me

Just to throw this on out there, Spartan's new tuner has been shipping out for the 6.0 and it offers custom tuning as well. If you go over to the 6.4 forum, you'll see that Spartan tends to be the choice on that engine and I know that the tuner has worked better for me then the SCT has and I have had two of the famed Eric's tunes as well. They aren't bad, but the Phalanx seems a little more refined then SCT.
