No you can't switch SCT on the fly but it is still worth it. I used Eric at Innovative to tune my 6.0 and I had zero complaints. If I bought another 6.0, I would custom tune it without a doubt. You also should look into getting gauges. I would recommend an edge ct or cts. That way you can monitor EOT and ECT

With any of the SCT device you can't shift on the fly. The choice of which one is up to you, some member who had got the Livewire sent it back because it's too bulky to mount in the cab. Majority of the people run the x-3 or sf3 with the Edge CS/CTS as a monitor for gauges.

As far as who's tunes to use, IMO they are all great. You just need to read up on past posts and make a decision. You really can't go wrong with any of the main tuners.

I don't know for sure if the livewire will monitor EOT and ECT. You definitely need an EGT guage and I would also reccommend boost and tranny temp. If the livewire will monitor EOT and ECT then you will be good to go. If not then I would highly recommend a custom tuned SCT/Edge CT,CTS combo. I think Raul at Stealth Automotive offers a package deal like this.
