SCT Touch screen extreme

I am looking at the SCT TSX. Anyone have any advice on this unit? I have had people tell me the livewire was a bulky pos.so I am looking at either getting TSX or getting Edge insight and X3. Anyone with suggestions please. I don't want to waste my $!
Thanks in advance.
Rob

I am not sure if the TSX is expandable for EGT and Fuel Pressure if you want to do that. I myself did the insight CTS with the add ons for those and am going to get an x3 sct unit as a tuning supplement - I really like the CTS

That is what I would do again if I had to as well.

I almost got the TSX, but went with the Edge Insight CTS and the SCT X3 combo. Its cheaper, expandable, and I figure if that somehow one breaks/gets stolen, they can both read DTCs, and I only need to spend about $350 to replace one or the other.

I for one have the TSX. Great unit. You can hook up to monitor EGTs with it but not fuel pressure. It took alot of learning for me because im not too great with new technology and bluetooth and what not, but no i no how to work it its awesome. Does everything in one nice sleek lookin unit.

Ya it does. It looses connection the odd time so you just click reset bluetooth and its back.

So does it have any abilities for high idle or turbo cool down?
What about the edge insight? I think i have read the insight has the cool down timer? Anyone have any input on thi[B][/s on the insight?

Does the insight have the turbo cool down timer? So there is an expansion for fuel press. Where does that sensor go?
