running sct livewire on stock motor, couple ?s

im gonna be buying an sct 5015 tuner/monitor for my truck. im buying it from innovative and ill prob run the xtreme street tune and a tow tune. my truck runs perfect it is a 6.0 but i maintain it, oil changes fuel filters, etc. now i want this tuner because of the monitor and you can diagnose trouble codes so will this tuner tell me if im having any issues within the motor. ive done my research and i know i should get an egr delete and oil cooler and studs also the ficm reflashed but i live with the idea if it isnt broke dont fix it but i def do want to monitor the 6.0 just incase i do have to eventually dig deep into the pockets but will i be ok running custom tunes on the bone stock motor. i am def looking for more power plus my transmission doesnt shift right at all with my lift and 38's. also what can the livewire monitor i know watch engine oil/coolant temps. will it display ficm voltage or even a trouble code if im having egr issues?? thanks for any help

You SHOULD be OK running custom tunes that are written for a STOCK motor.....there are some written for STOCK.....Some for MOD. motors.

Yes it will display FICM Volts.........It will display almost anything and everything....the only thing that I know of that it will NOT is fuel pressure......I'm running stock wheels/tires but I belive that you can change that on the Livewire.

Also op, the ts isn't going to "tell" you what's wrong, you have to know what you're looking for. That can be found in this thread.
