i like my livewire and it has some great functionality but after having it for a while i would rather have a x3 and a edge insight to use just for guages it has more pids that it monitors. also the livewire is huge about 8 inch long 4 tall and 1.5 wide but whichever you go with custom tunes are a must. i am absolutely happy with my innovative tunes!!

Go with the x3 and an insight for gauges, its pretty much the hot setup! The livewire as said above is quite bulky and the insight will monitor more parameters.

Thanks,
Adam

my vote is for the X3 and the new CS.... i have never been a big fan of the all in 1 units because most are pretty big and bulky and if for some reason it gets stolen or breaks you lose your tuner and gauges in 1 shot...

were having a 1 week only blowout sale on custom tuned X3's if your interested.. i can give you a heck of a deal on the package deal for botht he CS and the X3

Not intending to hijack this thread but what kind of deal would you do for the SCT X3, custom tunes, Insight CST, and EGT probe? And then same package but with the Insight CS. Thanks
