I've got one in my ex. I have it hooked up when I tow, the rest of the time it rides in my console. I am not a big fan of the wire hanging from the dash down to by my knee.

Do a search and you can see some other members placement of the SCT livewire. I just bought one and will be installing it in the lower change or whatever holder that is when finished with EGR delete. Unbelievable the amount of crap in my intake. The EGR delete is a must! Can't wait to get her back together.

I run the wire in behind the dash and into the OBDII. Then I have the pod mounted in the bottom left hand corner of the window. Fit's nicely, you need to adjust the backlighting for night driving as it can be really bright during the day to make it easy to read but way TOO bright at night making it blinding. If you get the livewire you will also need to purchase the EGT probe which is around ~150 bucks...

SCT X3 and Edge Insight or SCT TSX, the livewire sucks IMO
