best tuner for gauges

Ok, so we all know that SCT is the best for programming, but which brand unit allows you to monitor the most parameters? Would it be better to get an X3 and a gauge pod, or an X3 with say an edge cts, or does a livewire provide enough monitoring?

Most I think will jump on the X3 / CTS bandwagon as that combo just works, there is no guessing game if it will work, it DOES!

I run this combo in my truck and extremely happy with all it does for me.

i know tons of people love the edge insight. im just to cheap i did livewire for guages and had it loaded with custom tuning instead of x3/insight and i like the guages but the programmer has to be turned on and off manually every time you turn the truck on and off its a total pain but saved a few bucks.

SCT and Edge CTS is what I run on my 6.0 but you could go with a Livewire and purchase a analog fuel pressure gauge and you should have everything covered.

The Livewire is an outdated platform I agree.....which is prob why SCT discontinued making new ones....


But there's a birdy who told me about a Livewire 2 coming out in next couple months.... :-)
