yes you can leave it on just for gauges.. but by no means you should move it anywhere above 0... SCT with Innovative tunes will be one of the best you can buy... and you can get it right here: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning

if you have any questions please feel free to ask

You can use the edge for gauges, but i would sell it for a plain insight or physical gauges because issues can arise with the edge being tied into the truck with the ability to fake #'s. As for tunes, Innovative, GoGo, or Gearhead are all excellent tunes.

I just got the SCT livewire. I still can't not get it installed I guess I have to get my truck reflashed? Did anyone else have to do this? BTW it is a 2003 6.0 thanks for any help.
