SCT or EDGE?

Hey guys here is what I have goin on. I currently have a SCT Livewire with custom tuning from Elite Diesel. I love the power and response from this thing. But, I am looking at switching to an EDGE CTS because I am wanting to add the back up camera for when I hook up to trailers since I do it alone a lot of the time. In you opinion is this a "good" move tuning wise or should I just stick with the SCT? Thanks!

The only edge product for a 6.0 is the insight cts or cs. you already have the king of the mountain tuner on there.

:agee: just stick with the SCt for tuning, and if you want the screenof the CTS, get an Edge Insight CTS to monitor the engine and run your backup camers. There are hundreds of guys using that combo

If it's JUST a back up camera you want, I've seen them at Auto Zone for pretty reasonable. Edge is pretty spendy, before the add-ons.

I run the SCT X3 with custom tunes by Dave at Inovative Diesel. I absolutely love my SCT. I havent used an EDGE product before but have tried a couple others including Banks Six Gun. IMO I will never find a better product.

If all you want is the back up camera and already have gauges, it seems to lead to a simple answer. Buy a backup camera from AutoZone or Advanced and stick with what you already know will perform for you. Good Luck!
